don't have a sub
That was one big break for us. We’ve had nothing of this game so far but the first chance presented we buried it with 100% precision and opportunism. Fantastic!
20’ Havertz with a shot, easily saved. But the flowing buildup before that was really good. Starting off with a pretty chest pass by Jesus to Saka.
Damn that was a banger of a goal
That goal was phantasmagorical
25’ lens equalizes. That felt like it was definitely coming. They’ve been really potent. Raya mispass gave them the ball?
I didn’t actually see it live, I looked away for a second, but I heard the commentator say something about Raya
Man, that was a goal Wenger would be proud of.
He makes so many bad passes !!
Referee seem to take the card out of his pocket, but in the end did not give it to Havertz. Phew.
Saka isn't moving very well.
Edit: and down he goes.
As always, A+ shit from Arteta in the field of squad management.
Bro why are we still playing Bukayo when this has happened to him four games in a row. Criminal
Quelle surprise! Saka out with a soft tissue injury of some sort
I guess that’s just what we get with Mikel. And I guess somehow we have to accept it?
City on Sunday and we're running out Starboy at Lens.
Arteta can't not play his favorite players no matter the injury risk. This one is on him.
This seems like a pretty massive screwup by Arteta.
I suppose it depends partly on the final score tonight. But, as you know, I'm with you on this sentiment in general.
So far the rationalization I can come up with is that Citeh will be without 3 stars from their XI, and gods willing our missing stars will be fewer than that.
We’re very dependent on Martinelli and Saka to provide attacking output. Without both we are pretty sterile
He was getting tested for his hammy too, which while different from his other ailments, does suggest a level of fatigue/over-use
It's also one of those injuries that can come from overcompensating for an injury somewhere else. A bad left knee means you're putting more pressure on your right leg, for example.
I feel like a club at this level should be sophisticated enough to not be ignoring pain when it comes to their athletes. Don’t ignore pain! It’s a signal!
49' Jesus forces turnover, nice break, leads to a shot by Trossard that very easily could've been our 2nd goal. Keep it up boys!
That's what I was trying to imply by my description of it as a "soft tissue injury"
Yeah but I've heard a lot lately from players/pundits who say they rarely play pain free. So it really comes down to grading the pain (by player and club) to determine the risk of playing through it.
Tomiyasu gives away far too many careless fouls.
