Not at all as entertaining as it promised to be. City seem to pick up where they left off mind

Why on earth did Arsenal spend loads on Leno if it is to sit him on the bench? No offense but Cech needs to let go. Leno is a more than able goalie and should be given his chance. A very Wenger decision by Unai.
Also, Lichtsteiner? It reminds me of Wenger calling back Mickäel Sylvestre from pre-retirement. Buy young and hungry Unai.

On the game, the physio should get the sack for allowing Maïtland-Niles to continue despite the poor lad being barely able to walk! Wenger's shadow is still very much at the club on this first half's showing. Unai's got a lot of work to do.
City still very much the team to beat. Mahrez, Sterling, Walker, Mendy all really impressive. The intensity of the game is jaw-dropping. Let's see how the second half goes.

Arsenal persisting with playing out from deep even though it seems to put them in trouble more often than not.

B. Silva is moving up a level this season it seems. He was very impressive what I saw of him in preseason.

Pep was bigging him up all summer. This is the year he takes the mantle from his brother David I think.

Yup it could be where the pupil overtakes the master. Think Bernardo Silva will be one of the main danger men for City now if he keeps this up.

No one is mentionning Özil?

I suppose that the less said about his performance the better. Just don't understand why Unai took off Ramsey and not him.

Ramsey isn't fully fit, just back from injury the other day.

Ozil was and is shocking. Terrible performance today, but what do you expect. Arsenal won't finish in the top 4, I can guarantee that.
