Video: Raheem Sterling punishes Arsenal early to open the scoring

Manchester City have taken the early lead over Arsenal thanks to Raheem Sterling.

It was an uncharacteristic headed goal for the England international, who leapt from the six yard box to meet Bernardo Silva’s cross.

The Gunners will now have a big job to do to get themselves back into this, while you could be forgiven for fearing that this could be a tough watch after only minutes of the clash.

Will Arteta have be able to calm his side’s nerves after a shaky start?

    Caught up at start, we looking okay.

    Hope Laca comes in for Odegaard, as he should have started.

    Gives them a serious pb to defend and fight which allows to free other players, get them in real trouble.

  2. Mogunna says:

    Good changes but Auba is bes on RW, which is not making a +.

    Saka fine on LW, overall makes us more dangerous…

  3. Mogunna says:

    Still an unproving change tho.

    So far, this should be a zero-zero draw, 1-1 be fare…

  4. Mogunna says:

    Whoa, Luiz forwhat?

    It all get much more difficult overall.

    Holding was commending, gabrie is better option.

    Let’s hope we get a goal…

    Unlucky boys

    Cha nges were good but why keep pushing Auba on LW if he scored many of his gola & colbines best in switch up plays or coming to box from that side

    As Saka, he can score coming into proper foot but rest of it not as dominant natural LW he is.

    In the end it is no more such a threat from RW nor on RW nor link up with Lava to drive them nuts…. Tierny misses Saka as that wing, in the end totally off & lost as his play.

    Luiz adding up to this; we look crazy again as other players now need to cover him up as we saw xhaka or bellerin tierny all doing so.

    Holding was covering enough grounds to secure us and free players going forward….

    Arteta had to bring him on as Ceballos, if not Wllian…

    All over sudden, we back to a lost team.
