A five foot seven midget outjumped our giant defence to score the only goal of the game after just two minutes as we fell to yet another disappointing defeat at the hands of Manchester City on Sunday evening.
Raheem Sterling leapt highest to get on the end of a Riyad Mahrez cross to head home and put the visitors one up and the goal turned out to be the winner, giving the player time to think about a few spins on the bestaustraliancasinosites.
It wasn’t all bad however, we didn’t concede again and actually gave an ok account of ourselves, but couldn’t find an equaliser to put a halt to the Man City Premier League winning juggernaut.
After scoring his first Premier League hat-trick last weekend against Leeds, you’d have put money on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbing a goal but he struggled to get in the game despite being the star of the show last weekend and hardly registered a shot.
In better news, Kieran Tierney returned to the fold, while Thomas Partey missed out again, and the defeat sees us still languishing mid-table in what has been a very poor season. Nicolas Pepe was impressive despite his late nights playing on machines a sous back in France. Tierney was also pretty decent after conceding the cross which led to the early goal, but sadly, City were head and shoulders above Arsenal and didn’t even need to go up a gear even though you know they could have. Anyway, given the squad they have and resources available it wasn’t an unexpected outcome and we move on.
Next up for the Gunners is a visit to Athens where we play Benfica in the Europa League this coming Thursday evening, early kick off at 5:55pm UK time.
