Mikel Arteta was let down by a few players in the match against City
Goals from Kevin De Bruyne, Jack Grealish, and Erling Haaland gave Arsenal the loss against City. Few players failed to shine in the match. Arsenal’s hopes of winning the league is now firmly balanced. Eddie Nketiah was one such player. Furthermore, the ball was put on a plate for him but he failed to score past Ederson. Mikel Arteta was seen being frustrated on the sidelines after his miss. Another player who failed to impress was Takehiro Tomiyasu. Takehiro Tomiyasu has been an asset for Arsenal since he joined them. But yesterday was just not his day. Not only did he perform poorly, but he also gifted the ball to De Bruyne for their opening goal. Both Mikel Arteta and the Gunners fans were disappointed with his yesterday’s performance. Lastly, it was Gabriel who made numerous mistakes in the game.
The Brazilian has been a constant starter for Arsenal alongside William Saliba. But he allowed the magnitude of the match gets to him. The player was unable to win any of his duels against the opponents. He was bested by Haaland a number of times in the match. Arsenal still has one game in hand. Mikel Arteta and the fans would really be hoping to win that match. As that match can seal the Gunners fate of winning the league.
