We as most Arsenal fans expected, the Manchester United game was a disappointment.
Once again, Arsenal bottled it at Old Trafford and looked scared against Manchester United. There’s no denying that the home side dominated the game – creating the clearer chances and they were denied a stone wall penalty in my book.
But with seconds remaining in a game Arsenal were lucky to still be in, a darting run from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain found Olivier Giroud at the far post to head home emphatically – from Arsenal’s first attempt on target.
So was it a good game or bad game for Arsenal?
We played extremely poorly yet took away a point – so it depends on your viewpoint.
For me when I saw the starting line-up I was shocked at the inclusion of Aaron Ramsey. The whole starting eleven looked strange and didn’t sit right with me – and it showed – as we plodded through the entire match second best.
I thought that Xhaka should have started alongside Coquelin and if you’re going to play Özil behind the front three with Alexis in the middle, then Walcott and Iwobi are a much better combination with the Chilean. The only way Ramsey (for Iwobi) would have worked was if Giroud was up top and Alexis replaced Walcott.
