From a game which most of us expected nothing, that’s exactly what we got. We had chances to get something out of the game, but some suspect refereeing decisions put paid to that.
City’s third goal was offside, Monreal was penalised for a soft penalty for their second and we also had ourselves to blame, Ramsey could have equalised at the end of the first half but missed the chance and the City keeper made a good save. After going 2-0 down from the penalty which Aguero scored off the post, we managed to haul ourselves back into the game when substitute Lacazette scored a great goal to give us a glimmer of hope.
Jesus who had come on for record City scorer Aguero was in the right place at the right time after the offside Silva picked him out and he scored from close range to all but finish us off.
With all City’s billions, their depth of squad was too much for us and we were put to the sword after wave after wave of attacks proved too much for our makeshift defence. Ozil and Kolasinac were lucky not to see red after they both lost their heads late on.
The third goal killed the game off and City remain unbeaten while we are now a whopping 12 points behind them in the Premier League. Next weekend is an international break so fingers crossed our players can get through that unscathed, time for Mustafi and Welbeck to return just leaving Santi Cazorla on the treatment table ahead of the Spurs game on the 18th November.
