^Pretty much what I assumed. Excluding the silky Laca finish
Man City are just too good systematically for us. Everywhere over the pitch they nigh on match or dwarf us for player talent.
Thought Le Coq was an odd choice at first glimpse but having him in there as extra stability was nice in hindsight. He made a superb interception from behind (oh yeah) to thwart a counter. It’s just the other side of his game that seems to severely lack, or more so, a better player alongside him.
Love Iwobi however I think his lack of severe goal threat was a hinderance today. Lacazette offers himself as a mobile outlet upfront; can link up, is capable enough to create for other players and scores goals. Wenger’s insistence on trying to entice goals from Iwobi, on such a big pedestal, is a gamble he likes to take. Bellerin against BvB a couple/few years ago rings in my mind. This was maybe the one position that irked me overall.
Linesman can fuck right off.
