Leading up to the game I really didn’t think we would actually win, but after reading yesterday’s pre match I thought how could we not (right said Fred)?
Team lineup was as expected since it was correctly predicted by RockyLives in his pre match post.
This time, I reached the game on time but even before I reached my seat I saw Martinelli driving into the box and getting a shot off which was saved by Ederson. My thoughts were, wow is this going to be a game and the day I see my first top 6 victory live from the Home of Football. Two minutes later Chambers gave me an answer to that question, as a through ball was sent in and instead of Chambers dealing with it and cutting out the ball, he opted to let the attack run on to it and the delivered cross was 1 nil to Man Shitty. Why is Kolasinac ducking is he afraid of balls?
As the game continued we looked positive, but Arsenal kept playing a dangerous game by passing it around the back.
Another defensive lapse sees KBD able to roll the ball across for Sterling making it 2 nil, Kolasinac again this time ball watching.
In the 25th minute Guendouzi looked like he was fouled from the upper tier but of course not given, it seems we are the only team who don’t get home advantage.
At 2-0 down the Emirates crowd kept trying to motivate the team.
Kolasinac pick up an injury, let’s hope it isn’t serious and on came one of the players I really like in this current squad – Saka. But before he was given a chance to bring us back from a 2 nil deficit Guendouzi let KBD in and boom is was 3 nil(cant believe I removed him from my fantasy side).
Clearly this is how the Arsenal team thinks it should defend, let the attackers run onto the ball and hope Leno could stop the shot.
Half came and I took a long walk to block 106 to meet peaches for the first time. Pleasure to meet you peaches.
Then on top of the that I was offered a set next to Ant and LBG. (Should have a picture for chas to show him how we look in the upper tier).
Hopefully some of that good fortune could be passed on to my name sake.
The second half opened with City still dominating and on one occasion KDB almost grabbed his hatrick but Leno made a great save sending it onto the post.
ESR came on for Ozil and LBG was a happy camper, he didn’t make an instant impact but he gradually grew into the game and on one occasion chipping a through ball for Aubameyang to run onto but he rushed it and dragged it wide. Arsenal’s second shot on goal.
City then began playing keep ball and weren’t really troubled.
My Current record of watching Arsenal play is 3 – 3 (rough)
Player ratings are ………. Everyone gets a 4 probably Leno could get a 6 since he keep us from being slaughtered second half.
The referee gets a 2(as Arsenal get no home advantage)
