An injury time goal from Rodri gave Man City a 2-1 win over Arsenal which they absolutely did not deserve.
Bukayo Saka put the Gunners in front in the first half, but a Riyad Mahrez penalty in the second half brought the scores level. We could have been 2-1 up when Gabriel Martinelli missed a glorious chance and seconds later we were down to 10 men when Gabriel Magalhaes picked up his second yellow card.
There will be plenty of discussion of referees, VAR inconsistency and all the rest, but Arsenal fans should be proud of the performance overall and the fact we were so competitive against the best team in the league. Definitely things we can build on.
Here’s how the players rated this afternoon.
