Exciting game at Emirates see Arsenal draw with Champions

Wow! What a game that was. A game that could have gone either way. Perhaps, a draw was a fair result.

Arsenal started brightly for the first 25 minutes but City nicked a goal against the run of play. Earlier, Welbeck had hit the post after beating Hart with a sumptuous chip.

Arsenal will draw encouragement from the performance of Wilshere. What a terrific game he had! He did what we all know he can. Great at surging forward and opening up the opponent’s defense. He grabbed a beautiful goal to cap his great performance. MOTM for me. Hey! And what a finish by Alexis.
Worryingly for Arsenal was their defending. Perhaps that what cost them the three points. There were numerous moments of criminal defending. The first goal was scored from losing the ball upfront and Flamini lost track of Aguero in the build up for the goal. The second was an abject defending for the corner. Fourth goal we conceded from a header this season. Not good.

Wenger will also ponder over the loss of Debuchy through what seemed a bad injury. Hope things are not bad for him as you realize after Chambers came on, all our first team defenders were on the field bar from Gibbs. Scaring, uh? Hope the failure to sign another defender won’t haunt us.

Were you happy with the draw? For me I cannot complain.
