Post match, Teta needs to make A-M happy and bring out the stash of Snickers & Twix for their boy Youri Michelin as a sweetener:

Got a feeling that Gabby Jesus is going to cook in this one.

I’ll say 3-0 🔴⚪

Gabriel Jesus is magical. He makes us so much better attacking. This is going to be the signing of the season. He's everywhere on the pitch, he reminds me of Ronaldinho and Alexis. That first goal was a thing of beauty.

The second-best player in the match is for me between Zinchenko and Martinelli. Martinelli just gets it. Only 6 mil. What talent we have in our squad.

Special mentions, Saliba. After his own goal, he didn't put He's head down. He's only 21 he'll make more mistakes, but what a defender he's becoming. Wonderful reaction from the fans when he wins the ball back.

Xhaka haters, be quiet. His new role suits him perfectly. Since last season, he's playing further forward, and he's a better player. Goal and an assist today.

Six points, bring on the rest!!!
Agree with all except comment on Xhaka. I think he attempts to play the attacking position the best that he can, but it is not his strength. Regardless he is one of our top performers so far and that is attributed to his focus and dedication. There are a few other players who are performing below their capabilities, but he seldom does.

Well, back from the game - just an excellent attacking performance, movement and pace. Jesus is a game changer, obviously, for this team.

Obviously still work to be done defensively, need another person on the right wing and CM, much as I now bizarrely love Xhaka. Difference is we conceded twice and instead of defending the one goal lead went straight up the other end and scored.

Happy days.

Plus we seem to have passsed last seasons hex to Man Utd - why a ****ing clown show. :lol:

Cracking game today it so good to see the team going forward and attacking instead of all the back passing we used to play over the last few seasons,
The man of the match for me was Martinelli, he was all over the pitch attacking and then getting back to defend when he was going forward the other side could not handle him,
The same can be said of Jesus, he was unstoppable with some of the turns he did on the defenders,
It was a shame about Saliba, with the own goal but most of the game he was good,
Xhaka, being allowed to go forward looks like a different player he was good and causing problems for the other side, If Granit, keeps playing like he did today I don't think we need to bring Tielemans, in,
If we can keep playing like this we are going to get the top four this season and could challenge for the title.

Not surprised we lost, we always do to them, but the score line could've been embarrassing, Brentford look on paper one of the weakest attacks but managed 2, now 4...very worrying.
Why do we always just roll over for Arsenal? It’s like we don’t even try. They’re not that special. They’re cvnts.


Stop giving them easy wins.
Yes arsenal are good currently, playing with confidence and they were clearly too good for us today. But it's the same mistakes over and over again.
Shows how far rodgers has dragged us down, pathetic. Finished above these 2 years ago.
Granit bloody Xhaka made to like Lampard in his prime today.
I’m now wondering whether it is worth selling Fofana at peak value and strengthening 2 or 3 other areas
we're more than capable of getting another point next weekend.

Time to sit back and watch Brentford beat Man Utd
This Arsenal side was a bit like Man city at times.

We will get better but I hope we don't use Amarty much.
The only positive I can take is its one day closer to him leaving
Today was a free hit and we were competitive against a team that will be top 4. Dropping the 2 points against Brentford and a bad result against Southampton are the ones that get a manager the sack so let's see how it goes next game.
I think this is the 12th time I have been to Arsenal away and have never even seen us get a draw.

How much were our two goals coming from their mistakes? The header in particular must have been like 0.8 alone
I'm not sure but when chance in box without big pressure the xg for it will be high. We also had few clear cut chances we should've scored from it
