We must be the unluckiest club in the PL VK back now Stones out again.



TEAM NEWS

Arsenal must face Manchester City on Sunday without injured quintet Shkodran Mustafi, Danny Welbeck, Lucas Perez, David Ospina and Santi Cazorla.

Manager Arsene Wenger could keep the three-man defence he used for Monday's league win at Middlesbrough.

Manchester City forward Gabriel Jesus is included in the squad, only 10 weeks after breaking a bone in his foot.

John Stones has failed to recover from the muscle injury that ruled him out of last week's game at Southampton.

Bad decisions on our penalty shouts, bothe were pens as was Arsenal's and we had a good goal chalked off, the ball didn't go out of play. Thought reflet a few things go early on and should have booked at least 3 Arsenal playes. Good tactic to kick lumps out of Silva and Aguero , both succumbing to knocks.
After all that though it was a typical performance from us and i don't know why Navaz is being picked in front of Zabaletta. Navaz has got pace and works hard but he aint good enough. A poor end to a poor season and Pep has fuck all to show for all the hype.
I don't want 'who'd believe it brigade'to lump on and say we should be thankful. We're well past that era and have spent millionsand should be doing a lot better than we are. Sold a dream waiting for the great Pep and so far both Pellegrini and Mancini are showing just what good managers they were for us

Don't create enough, therefore we don't score enough. Arsenal did their job on Silva, had a go at Sergio and it affected us. Pissed off about today, and Guardiola better get it right next season or he's a goner.

I feel bad for continually slating Pellers last season, he's making Guardiola look a rank amateur at present. How can this be happening?.

Kicked Silva and Aguero out of the game, hit woodwork twice, good goal disallowed, think we tired very quickly especially Sane

Agree ob. Sane didnt have any of his pace in latter stages of second half. First half all our pressing was down our right with Navas and i think we did quite well. Second half it was via Clichy mainly and it didnt work as well and Ox Chamberline pegged us back and took advantage of space left. Should have switched it back , as their first goal came from a good break on our left. Once Silva went off we were struggling, but de bruyne and Toure did well. To be fair we could have won but lady luck and officials were poor. Although we had a fair share of fouls committed, more arsenal players should have been booked early on

Just seen replay of disallowed goal for first time   and  very hard to call  though just in

Took too long to get a shot in again like most of the season

wasn't sure if foul for their winner was fair but we should have defended that much better

forgot all about the 4th sub rule  and thought had they forgot Silva going  off 

Crap getting out of the ground again don't think they thought about crowd safety too much when redesigning the ground
