    Torreira was seriously amazing today he won the ball too many times

    Xhaka was good too apart from his xhaka moments

    Looked good. Thought Özil played very well, Laca looked rusty. Torreria was excellent. What can you say about the number of poor balls in the final third today - you should honestly be expecting to lose a Premiership match if you waste that amount of chances, so I guess that’s a bonus :lol:

    Really feels like 3 points lost.

    At least we know why they are keeping Pepe out of the action - someone tries to murder him every game.

    Played well and came from behind, should have won it bar a Laca disasterclass, but something to build on.

    Encouraging signs from Arteta, even just being in charge for a few days.

    You can see the difference already. There is a lot more work that needs to be done. Sunday’s game v. Chelsea will be massive.

    I dont think Arteta could have done more here, save scoring the goals himself.

    We should have been out of sight after the first half.

    Still, there were lots of positives. Our movement was a lot better, hence why we created more chances. I liked what I saw from our work rate without the ball.

    But the players look absolutely shot of confidence. It is going to take time this, and in the short term it will probably be rather rough... two tough games coming up. Then vermin in the third game.

    They seem clueless against team who park the bus.

    Better than they have been lately.. but that's not really that hard, considering they've been abysmal lately

    Looked like they wanted to do things quickly... which was nice to see

    Still seriously hamstrung by a poor central defence. Sokratis is utterly useless.. but the option instead of him? Mustafi.. who almost cost the game in the end with a reckless tackle on Fraser that missed by a mile. I imagine the first thing Arteta does is get rid of those two jokers. Shane Duffy from Brighton would be a huge step up from either of them

    Özil was impressive. Once he gets quick ball and space between the lines.. he can be lethal

    Wouldn't be as hard on Laca as some.. he needs match practice. Problem is.. either him or Auba can play middle.. not both. Auba is a ghost of a player when on the wing

    Look.. its a half decent start. And Chelsea lost, so we've managed to get a point closer to a CL spot even without winning.

    Two huge games in the next two that could if we won both, give the team serious momentum going into the New Year

    It's not sharpness, Laca is just too fat right now. Pépé had a knock, but he's fit.

    This was the Norwich game all over again. The manager post-Emery was never the problem and this proves my point that you can't coach a team a new system instantly. It also makes you look lile a bit of a tw*t for your Freddie bashing.

    His positioning was spot on today, rarely saw him being pressured for the turnover... bar a moment in the second half. Other than that I didnt see much to worry about with him.

    Long may that continue, we are going to need all hands on deck for us this season.

    Promising. Clearly some way to go but it's a start

    2 shots on target from us today. That is unbelievably bad considering how we dominated that game. Laca with a stinker and Auba despite scoring not much better tbh.
    still, thought the midfield was excellent and defence did ok.

    Exactly.. 17 attempts.. 2 on target. Just not good enough.

    But 17 attempts is a decent starting point

    This is the Premier League.

    Lots to still play for.

    What major changes do you see coming in January? Maybe 1 signing, two if we're really lucky?

    If you don't want to support the team, do one & f**k off mate. Sick of fair weather 'supporters' like you. Its Arteta's first game in charge ffs. Unbelievable...

    Those aren't impressive numbers and nearly all of the goals are at home.

    No it wasn’t. They played well for about 20 minutes in the Norwich game. We dominated pretty much the whole game today. Look at the shape of the team when we had possession. That was completely different to anything we’ve seen recently and it helped us control possession.
