Well, I'd take this scoreline as the result, to be honest. Arsenal feel more threatening than even Man City did last week. They swarm at you. We've not really created anything ourselves yet, but they've looked close to scoring a few times and are constantly putting our midfield and defence under pressure. Our goal came from a brilliant bit of individual play rather than good team play or match control.  


We need to somehow get some control. As I said, a fair ref would help. Every player in possession is constantly getting little kicks at the back of their heels. Considering we have a twelve foot tall striker, it would help if we started getting some free-kicks when we get fouled around their box.

I think we should bring Garnacho on. Move Rashford either into the centre or the right.

Wout has been really useful for us today though. I think it might be worth hooking Antony, who has been okay, but looks like he might get himself sent off.

Commentators and pundits often criticise keepers for not saving low fast quickly hit shots that go in. But those shots keep going in and all the best keepers can't save them. I think put all the best keepers in the world in De Gea's position there and the ball goes in. Not because it was an unstoppable shot but because it's that same combination of quickly hit, power and accuracy that if executed near perfectly keepers can't get down quickly enough. Or they're 'unsighted'.
