Arsenal gets minced by Manchester City, who outshine them and puts the ball at the back of the net a whopping 5 times. The Gunners were guests at the City home ground, and the match was held on Saturday. With their third loss in a row, Arsenal is now positioned at the very bottom in the table of the Premier League.
With a perfectly measured cross from Gabriel Jesus, the first goal was scored within 10 minutes from the start of the game by Gundogan. Bernd Leno, the goalkeeper for the Gunners was not able to make the save.
The Gunners were consistently poor in their performance during the entire match, and their gameplay was riddled with mistakes. Cedric Soares, the defender, repeatedly fell short in his efforts to make the clearances as and when needed. Things took a turn for the worst after Xhaka was sent off because of a challenge that he made on Cancelo. This caused Arsenal to perform more poorly than it already was.
The mere shortcomings from the team were not left free and the Gunners were severely punished by the Manchester City players, who did not spare a single instance. Jack Grealish, the England star that moved to City this transfer window, set up Jesus.
Arsenal’s Season Start Nothing Short Of Disappointing
Arsenal has exhibited performances this season that can be described to be nothing better than disappointing, to say the least. The Gunners could not secure a win against Brentford, a club that has just been promoted to the Premier League.
Even the fans have been singing songs in the stands that say they are used to losing now. It is very sad on their part since they arrive even though the team is performing poorly in a consistent manner.
Aubameyang, the central striker for Arsenal mentioned that, after a series of losses right at the start of the season, it would mean that motivating the remaining squad is going to be a really difficult job.
