    Meh, he looks both slow and weak, especially for Pl. Not the profile we should be going for.

    His passing looks great tbf.

    Potentially a good mid table CB.

    Good anticipation and passing ability, his left foot also adds to his appeal. That said, I dont think he has shown enough to get him in permanently.

    Like Mustafi, Sokratis, Chambers and Holding I think he needs to make way.

    Nice empirical material for that conclusion

    He'll have similar problems like Mertesacker for a slow CB in high line would be difficult i think he solid in his 2 games early to judge.

    I'd hope that he can only improve as he plays more. At the very least he seems a good plan b option if we can't get a top LCB and for not much money.

    Looks like a good backup left-sided CB. Need to bring in a starting caliber left-sided CB for him to back up in the summer.

    Mari today reminded me a lot of Merts when he first joined us. His size no longer made a difference, and needed to get both smarter and stronger to survive.

    Mari isn't as slow as Merts, so it'll be interesting to see how quickly he adapts.

    This was a decent first EPL match.

    Did well today aside from the mistake as mentioned. You won’t get many harder debuts than Michail Antonio, he’s a nightmare for any defender. Pace and power in abundance. Mari applied himself well.

    We don't need anymore backup CBs ffs. We've already got 6 of those. And Saliba on the way.

    Pretty soon we'll have a whole team of rash or weak CBs. What a shambles.

    Expecting the hype to build until City put 6 past us on Wednesday and Aguero demolishes this lad.

    He is slow and has zero experience at playing topflight football. Yet you will have the usual suspects telling us how this is another master class from Raul and Kia.

    When this guy was match fit he handled the Liverpool front three so think people writing him off are being premature

    Once again Arsenal mania discarding players after two matches, two clean sheets and two solid displays from Mari. I see some good material in him, he will grow with time, and his passing will provide added value, especially in midfield like ours.

    Are you for real? Aguero? Salah? Kane? Firmino dragging him out. Antonio is just a bull. Has no skill or any great technique. I would expect someone at near 2 metres to be able to deal with that type of striker all day.

    It's the smaller, quicker strikers he will struggle against.

    It's a worrying thing also that Haller won 8 aerials today 3 more than Luiz and Mari won together.

    Contradicting yourself here, but nevertheless thanks for your input. I’m sure being Spanish and playing in the Brazilian League he’s well accustomed to “smaller, quicker strikers”. It’s the nature of the Prem and the physicality of players like Antonio that he won’t be used to.
