Bipolar Arsenal! Good win. Immense defensive performance.
mmm not really. Xhaka, Tierney, Gabriel and I'd say even Luiz have been better than him. Partey basically had 3-4 good games at the start and nothing really since then. This from outside looking in, but Arsenal fans might have different opinions.I think Partey has mostly been solid for them. Their second best player this season behind Saka probably.
He was even benched at Dortmund.He’s got some pace. I don’t think he excels at pretty much anything else.
A lot of people were begging for us to bye him, even if he was on the bench at Atletico and that no one was interested. Just show how much the caf knows… It was daylight robbery from Atleticommm not really. Xhaka, Tierney, Gabriel and I'd say even Luiz have been better than him. Partey basically had 3-4 good games at the start and nothing really since then. This from outside looking in, but Arsenal fans might have different opinions.
thats technically the right thing to do for a right-footed keeper. Opening up to take the back pass and also prevent any miss control leading the ball to just roll into the goal.I didn't watch the game but I did not understand the goal: why was Kepa so far from his goals?
Yeah we were taught if you're doing a backpass never pass it in between the posts just in case the keeper fecks up or you hit it too hard and it goes in.Agreed, even as a kid they coach you to always aim a backpass away from goal.
Agree. They’re approaching Woodward-Era United levels of wasted money.He was even benched at Dortmund.
Chelsea overpaid badly for a good number of players recently. He costed 60 millions, Havertz 80, Werner 50. That is really crazy considering You don’t even know where Havertz is supposed to play, as he is not a striker, that Werner is woeful in front of goal. And I don’t rate Ziyech as well, he is invisible most of the time and given his age it won’t get better.
Nope. The 5 points we dropped against them could have made all the difference to our title chances this season. I say this because they are probably the weakest of all the 'big 6' teams we have played this season and yet we dropped the most points against them. Their win at Old Trafford was one of the biggest park the bus performances I've seen and it came after they had lost something like 6 of their last 8 games and hadn't won in months. Immediately afterward they went back to not winning games again.Arsenal has entered the next phase of its existence ie being game raising twats. Watch them drop points against relegation fodder now.
Has anything good ever come from them since the wenger days ?
Pogba is a different beast on left with his physicality and technique. With Cavani in the box, it would be a tougher challenge for TAA (yes, more than Rashford)Question for the United fans here. I've seen your 'leaked' line up and it has Rashford on the right. Wouldn't you much rather see him on the left where he can get at TAA? Alexander-Arnold always struggles against him or Martial on that side when we play you.
Any time I've watched Rashford play, I've thought that he looks like a different player on the right, no where near as effective. He's great on the left imo. Pogba to me isn't a natural wide player either and can't play his game as well from there.Pogba is a different beast on left with his physicality and technique.

Ofcourse Rashford is going to switch as well.
So a bit like Man Utd without Bruno and Cavani then? Every team struggles without their talisman and topscorer, hardly surprising.Everyone knows Villa are a one man team as it is, but without Watkins their chance of scoring is even sillier.
And Everton are one of those teams you wonder how the hell they turned it on for a few games early season.
