The gunners had their main goal machine back but the addicks were missing Englishman Darren Bent. The new skipper looks set to be out for at least 4 weeks with a knee ligament injury.
Lets be honest, we were thrashed by an Arsenal side that were always going to be scoring goals against our poor defence.
With Darren Bent injured it was up to Marcus Bent to step up and play the lone striker role. Sadly Marcus just isn`t good enough alone and our clueless midfield was never going to offer enough service.
Osei Sankofa was sent off for fouling Van Persie inside the box, replays later showed that referee Mike Riley got it all wrong. Van Persie was clearly offside and active prior to the incident.
Henry slotted home the opener from the penalty spot and then became creator for defender Hoyte to slot past Scott Carson.
After the break Scott Carson made himself man of the match and made some world class saves. He is one of the best goalkeepers in the premiership already and even at his young age could easily be England's first choice. One good thing that Dowie did do while at Charlton was to sign this lad.
Late on in the second half Diawara tugged Henry`s shirt inside the box and another penalty was given. Van Persie just smashed it home, after Carson had gone the right way. It was to finish 4-0 with the Dutchman neatly chipping the oncoming Carson in the last minutes.
Scott Carson was man of the match and that says it all when he's conceded 4 goals against a very good Arsenal side.
