If you were expecting Arsenal to come out flying to take this Champions League decider against PSG by the scruff of the neck then you will have been disappointed and dismayed by the first half display, apart from the final two minutes which saw Olivier Giroud score a penalty to level the score.
Until then the Gunners had not had even an attempt never mind one on target and we seemed to be struggling in every part of the pitch. No doubt the French club were expecting to be more tested and they soon settled down and started coming forwards and it took less than 20 minutes for them to score.
Mustafi left his man and it was just one error from the below par defender. THey had it easy from then as well until the penalty but Arsenal did get better after the break as we worked harder to close them down and looked sharper on the ball.
It was a bit of luck that got Arsenal in front though, with Verratti putting into his own net after some pinball in the box. For a while we looked quite comfortable but as we began to drop off they pressed and got the equaliser thanks to some awful defending from a corner and then Iwobi heading the ball away from Ospina’s waiting hands.
After that it was PSG that looked most likely to win it and all in all it was another poor performance from Arsenal as November takes a familiar turn and we head for another runners up spot.
