    Always good to see the "Xhaka was amazing" squad out in full force :lol:

    What's with the "Xhaka was average" narrative? Seems to be the default line parroted no matter if he's been good or poor.

    He's not a B2B midfielder by any stretch but he was very good in the first half when we you know, won the game.

    Do you have your own opinion, I have already given mine so chill.

    I think it's pretty obvious, you're the one who should chill a bit.

    @SA Gunner was being pretty calm.

    Not calm, provocative, it seems to be the nature of south africans.

    Think a lot of the players were doing great today.

    Got off to a good start after Mustafi saved us from conceding an early goal with a nice header. From there on we were really good.

    Bellerin might not have succeeded with everything but his wide presence is so important, and then I don't care if that means Zaha gets a bit of space, we should have people covering that.

    Elneny was quite decent as well. Wasn't a fan of him starting, but he did nice in recycling possesion and covering when Xhaka went forward, which Xhaka did nicely in this one.

    Wilshere and Özil were on a different level. Top class.

    Iwobi looked to be gaining some momentum at times, still got some rough edges though. Promising signs though.

    Laca is throwing some minor tantrums when he doesn't get the ball he wants but nothing major I find. His goal was nice, and he had another nice effort, but he needs to be found more and get more out of it. Not writing him off thoug, of course.

    The subs were not too impressive today but can funny enough be hard to catch the groove when the starters are performing like they were in first half. Second half was a bit more dull.

    That first half was something else. The intensity obviously dropped after the break, but hope we see more of this from now on.

    Reminded me of the United home game a few years back.

    Winning a game in the first 22 mins is most definitely a throwback to the days of the invincibles.

    <sarcasm>So....was Sanchez the problem all the long? :lol:</sarcasm>

    Such crisp football, when there’s no one to clog it with some **** ideas

    I liked how we scored four different types of goals. A classy team goal, a couple pinball type "get in there" types and a set piece which was horribly defended.
    Goal for Lacazette is brilliant and Özil... words are not good enough

    Sorry bru, he's basing this extensive knowledge of our countrymen purely on his experience with me
