Pre-match views from the forum:

GoonerJeeves: “Very solid point at a place where we’ve been buggered in recent years.

We dug in well. In two games, we’ve taken four, they one. You take that.

If you keep a clean sheet at the Etihad, you can do it anywhere. Solid game from us.”

Blood on the Tracks: “Great defensive display by the whole team. So disciplined.

Man City haven’t failed to score at home in the PL in 4 years and they didn’t have a clear-cut chance all match.

4 points out of 6 against Man City is very good.”

NieThePiet: “Such a mature performance from such a young team, one of the most difficult away games.

Arteta knows how the set up the team for every opponent. Both games vs City were 0:0 games, we got 4 points out of these, pretty good. 4 points against Liverpool too, we are the best team in the league this season in the direct comparison.

If we arent winning the league, it’s because of the other results.”
