Spot on. Ndidi was in charge until his Manager asked him to man mark Ozil. Huge tactical mistake. Arsenal won the game cos their defence lost the screen he gave the CDs.

John Cross gave Mahrez a 7 rating, the highest rating for any player on the field :rotf: :rotf: this reminds me of looking at a game through the lens of a besotted Ozil or Xhacrap fan :rotf:

He subbed an extra defensive body for Kele who won't defend when he was a goal up and under severe pressure. Kele touched the ball all of once, would have made more sense to protect the lead and maybe bring him on in the dying seconds for Vardy.

I already said it here...Kele should not have gone to Leicester. It waa comical seeing him try to operate from the middle while Vardy was upfront...

I am curious to see how it is going to pan out....one can only wish him luck. The midfield is not as creative as to suit his game...oh well have a whole season to things pan out...

Just finished watching the game on replay...I am glad we won on one hand but damn what's with all the mental lapses and unforced errors. We completely just lost shape whenever they scored against the run of play.

Kola and Ox where bosses out there.

Why are you guys so miserable? Enjoy the bloody win. Relax! Wenger IS in control.

@mmeny: Kudos the Gunners! It's easy to forget we played with a makeshift defense.

I missed this game. Was it any good?

Was there any defending?

Is it worth watching the replay? Tomorrow's games suck so I might as well check it out but not if it was a typical smack the ball EPL game.

Spot on.

When kicked off, we had 3 Full Backs (2 in the back 3) and one Wide player (Ox ) in a back line of 5. Worse, it was the first game they had played together.

The best one, after his subs, we had a LW playing RW and the RW playing LW with 2 LWs playing at Centre Half.

When we got the lead with just over 4 minutes left plus extra time left, I thought, this is not over yet. We need another goal.

From my end, the 2 new boys won everyone with their attitude and quality.

Agree, though I would love to see stats from last year on how the rocks like Kos and Mustafi did together....

I certainly remember beating them like 5-3 2 ys ago with our full defense.

We have lost the opening game the last 3 seasons straight I think....all I care about is winning the first game, it was not the perfect performance but we need to remember it was a makeshift back 3 with Monreal in the middle and Holding having his worst game imho in a Arsenal shirt.

I noticed that we out-ran Leicester by 2 KM's in that game, so we have turned up for this season in a better physical condition than last year for example when if I remember correctly Liverpool out-ran us by close to 5KM's and won the game.

I thought Xhaka was good but special praise for OX(Never stopped trying and was very consistent throughout the game), Kolasinac(one or 2 defensive mistakes but excellent going forward) and Lacazette(A fantastic player, everything about him oozes class). And Giroud ofcourse always comes on with the right attitude.

Long way to go but a good start.

Credit to Wenger most of all. His subs (Ramsey and Giroud) plus formation and tactical changes (3-4-3 to 4-4-2) (Ox to RB, Bells to LB, Lacazette, inside left, Ozil 10, Theo Wide Right, then Ramsey running into space Izil vacates etc etc) won him the game.

The man was bold and got exactly what he deserved.

I dont think Kele should have moved to City unless City would change their tactics ... Leicester doesnt look a good fit.
