Looking at the stats, I’m not sure we even played well tbf.


#1822

never mind, that’s a wipe. good stuff.


#1823

Haha Matic MoTM


#1824

Solid ruining of fantasy gameweeks from Charlie Austin


#1825

was feeling well smug about Alonso -> Alderweireld as well


#1826

Wouldnt be a Fellaini cameo without an elbow to the back of the head (hair pulling is a new part of his repertoire tbf)


#1827

I know Man United are shit and everything, but I’m happy enough with a point considering the two injuries forcing Emery into changes. Think bringing Lichtsteiner on instead of switching to a back for when we were playing quite badly was a mistake but oh well.


#1828

Entertaining game.


#1829

done remarkably well in fantasy overall given that i captained sterling with alonso as vice


#1830

Latest reactive take: 4th will be between Chelsea and Arsenal this season.

For the points accumulated and new manager plaudits, it still doesn’t feel like I’ve seen either of them play well on more than a handful of occasions


#1831

The virus trio made us shit when they came on.


#1832

Satisfying win, especially given how nervy it was, but very worried about Joe Gomez who went off on a stretcher (looked like an ankle injury, didn’t even try putting any weight on it). Been our best player this season.

Keita was properly at it, which is nice timing.


#1833

We looked dead, which is understandable given the Spurs game, but not beating a Man Utd side completely there for the taking yet again is hugely frustrating.


#1834

Weird how Matic got man of the match when he did nothing.


#1835

Literally every player on the pitch was shit.


#1836

I think Torreira was best, and Aubameyang did alright from not much.

Everyone else I agree.


#1837

Thought the goal where he headed out of de geas hand was a goal


#1838

Very stupid game that. Reds Vs Blues levels of daftness.


#1839

I thought that was Torreira’s worst game for Arsenal and Aubameyang missed a sitter to win it.
