“You have to respect” Pundit hails the Arsenal defensive performance

Arsenal is renowned as one of the most attack-minded teams in the Premier League, but their defensive solidity was what earned them a valuable point against Manchester City today.

Despite only holding 28% possession in the crunch match against City, the Gunners managed to keep a clean sheet, showcasing their resolute defensive performance.

Traveling to Manchester with the aim of avoiding defeat, Arsenal executed their game plan effectively, frustrating City’s attacking threats throughout the match. Despite facing formidable talents such as Phil Foden, Erling Haaland, Bernardo Silva, and Kevin de Bruyne, Arsenal’s defense remained steadfast, ensuring they returned to London with a well-deserved share of the spoils.

Their defending impressed Shaun Wright-Phillips, who praised them and said on Premier League Productions:

“You have to respect how good Arsenal were defensively. They didn’t lapse in concentration, the few chance Man City had they didn’t capitalise on. Arsenal came with a game plan and it worked.”

  1. For me personally Gabriel was fantastic In the game and was my man of the match, did anyone else notice saliba was kind of shaking in the one minutes of the game happy to see tomi and TP5 back and playing well for the team.
    My darling arsenal for the EPL title

  2. We did very well to keep City quiet. Every man in the team offered defensive resilience and Saliba and Gabriel were phenomenal. Rice marshalled Rodri very well and Odegaard led the press. We could even have won had Jesus taken one of his chances but I am happy with the draw. If we can draw with City at Etihad, we can beat any team home and away and could win the title this season.
