Game of the Week: Arsenal, 7 - Reading, 5

By Adam Maher (@ArtoMar1)

Anyone who was unfortunate enough to have not caught the Arsenal vs. Reading Fourth Round Capital One Cup match yesterday is in for a treat. Arsenal was down 4-0 in the first half, 3-0 in the first 20 minutes, and pulled all the way back to win, 7-5. Reading has still never beaten Arsenal in all their years of competition, and for a struggling Arsenal this win really puts the cap on the daughter's doll for what has been a darling Arsenal season thus far.

Theo Walcott gets my vote for Man of the Match by sparking the Arsenal comeback at the end of the first half with a cheeky full-speed chip shot, but the entire Arsenal squad played a part in this epic comeback, something we probably won't see for a long, long time, which is why it's our Game of the Week. So kick back in your recliner and enjoy this 35 minute highlight. It's not every day you see 12 goals in a soccer game!
