    The only thing that annoys me about Pepe is he slows down great counter attacking by dropping the ball dead and trying to dribble without speed. He needs to run at speed and dribble when on the counter.

    I said this at some point last season. If he gives up his silly ambition of being a winger he might become a good to very good right back if he really applies himself

    Going back to Leno sometimes when we can go forward, I saw Özil do it many times, looks like we’re trying to control the tempo. Very good.

    Kola needs to be spoken to. He can’t go around shoving people all the time. Risky strategy when you’re on a yellow. Totally unnecessary, too. A little bump to unsettle them is fine but no need to extend his hands.

    Team is clearly fighting for each other, celebrating tackles etc. Love it. Just worried about Kolasinac. The tactic of him pushing up high in possession is causing Utd all sorts of trouble, but he's made 4 silly fouls and a red card will completely flip this game. He's doing well so it's a shame, but he must be subbed.

    Only positives about everyone else though (few minor things, but I'll let them be as long as we win this thing).

    Yeah but it can be coached into him. I agree but I'm sure it's something that will be worked on

    That was his bread and butter at Lille I’m sure it will come back.

    Sadly you know it's Arsenal and a 2:0 lead at half time means nothing.

    Excellent first half we have been playing the ball a lot quicker than we have for a long time and it is paying of straight away,
    I'm pleased that we have not tried to defend a one goal lead this time,
    Hopefully we have a similar second half but the players will probably start to get tired towards the end of the game.

    North5 Here since 2009. Still no custom title.

    In 2020, everybody is worse than us.

    yeah i agree mix it up, sometimes he needs to just sprint at the full back on the outside as he will beat most fb out there .

    Yep, a defender is more comfortable when you stand them up unless you’re Neymar/Messi.

    Running at them at speed is what terrifies them. He needs to find the byline a few times.

    We won’t be as good 2nd half I think, just hoping for a mature performance to see out this lead..

    We don’t have the energy to speed up the tempo for 70 min so we are slowing it and speeding it up for quick attacks

    Thank God we've got Arteta and not the guy the Spuds sacked.

    AMN has been better at RB recently than Bellerin has for a long long time
