    From listening to our past players talk about how we prepare for games in training, I would say nothing. Wenger puts a lot of trust in his players to come up with the good during games.

    They're up 6 points on us, and have a +15 better GD. Their opponents thus far have averaged 1.36 points per PL game, while ours have averaged 1.45 -- not a huge difference, and would be smaller if you took the time to control for the fact that 1) teams can't play themselves and 2) opponents' PPG is skewed by the fact that every other team in the dataset has played the team of interest (i.e. City's opponents look worse on a PPG basis by virtue of them playing City as one of their 16 fixtures thus far).

    Kind of hard to make a compelling case that we're above them. I think people unfairly knock their quality (from a pure results-based standpoint) due to their aesthetically displeasing style.
