1-1. Horrible defending. Shocking. Where in the H was Nacho?

Burnley might not have the tools to dismantle that defense, but others will. The weaknesses are blatant to see, especially in the air and on the wings.


Wetin I talk? :boo: :boo:

Goal by Nelson ruled offside but I think it might be close ... looked good VAR check? Ruled offside by a foot. 2nd time Nacho has needlessly wandered offside on a great move and was MIA on the tying goal.

Offside or not, that move was beautiful to see.

Arsenal defense is still all over the place and nothing has changed.

Unai should have stuck with the starting defense last week. Not sure Luiz is ready to slot in..

Lacaca is so strong in his center of gravity. Great 1st goal by a great striker.

That Burnley goal though was a disaster waiting to happen. Emre has not shown yet he knows how to build a solid defensive squad. If he doesnt get help, it will be his undoing.

Arsenal need 2 git Bellerin and Tierney fit and running ASAP. Also the lack of an explosive dribbler from the wide areas have shown itself as neither Auba or Nelson have provided that. Does Arsenal need to go back in for Zaha? Wide players need to step up.

Mehn! That goal conceded is just the typical soft goal Arsenal concedes year after year. They work so hard to get their noses in front only to give up a really cheap goal. So disheartening!!

Should have could have ... blah blah blah ... Arsenal B team should beat Burnley. That's the bottom line.
Pepe needs to get in the action sooner rather than later. I expect him to start the second half.
Ceballos looks pretty good on the ball. But his problem will be Iwobi's problem. Where is the end product?
Where is Henrikh ?

Nelson has been so disappointing going forward. For an English winger not to know how to run, dribble and cross consistently? What else are you useful for?
Anyways I expect Pepe to replace him soon enough.

Burnley is your typical English bloody your nose jambody team. They won't impress you with their possession but will make you pay on a counter. This is a must win game. I expect Pepe at some point to create width in our attack. Luiz needs to wake up. He was complicit in that Burnley goal, that's not the way to inspire confidence in the coach or fans.
Biko Mikhi should keep riding the bench o....

Hope he is ready? Our home crowd is quite intolerant.

We've to get with the program & make some hard choices. Auba used to be winger & ain't no more - if we've to play 2 strikers - play them both on top in a 2 or 1-1(4-4-2 or 4-4-1-1) - we're too open & wasteful for our own good. The defensive mindset in terms of holding shape etc should be to be stingy without conceding goals.
Stylistic & showtime passes come when you've a game won not at the beginning when you're still trying to dominate. It's all about intensity with a habit of passing a quicker ball.

The point is whether he is ready to step into the cauldron of a restless and impatient Emirates crowd. I would love Zaha and PEPE together. The best two teams have in the league have two great wide players. Not a coincidence.
