    Really like this Guendouzi kid. Looks like he could be special.

    Was quality in pre season.

    Never afraid of the ball.

    This new shape looks much better.

    I mean he hasn't, he's just been very isolated.

    Yes he has. Keeps passing it to City players and is actually failing to take on his man almost every time.

    What a pass from Guendouzi to Ozil there

    Such a poor team. You’ll lose to Chelsea next, which would be a horrendous start.

    I think they'll get something out of that.

    Hopefully. We’ve got Palace away next, which I think will be very tricky, so hoping for a Chelsea/Arsenal draw.

    I think we did better than Chelsea did vs city.

    Also think Laca made a big impact and will start and Torriera played well and should come in.

    And Lich played well at LB.

    At who's expense? Any chance of Auba being dropped?

    I am not providing fantasy tips.

    But doubt it, should start over Micky or Ramsey.

    You didn't look that bad, 6th place finish might be achievable.

    Ozil for me, thought he was poor today didn’t seem to have any desire to win the ball back whenever he lost it.

    I’d have

    PEA- Laca-Mkhi

    As a front 3 against Chelsea.

    Ozil is no good against teams that attack and press because he very rarely tracks all the way back quick enough so defensively you’re exposed a lot more.

    I would assume it could be

    Xhaka - Torreira
    Mkhitaryan - Ozil - Aubameyang
    Lacazette

    I’d be surprised if xhaka starts over matteo or Ramsey tbh, thought he also had a poor game he seem’s to like to much time on the ball.

    Played pretty well second half, and should have scored a couple tbh. For a first game against City, the overall performance was better than I thought and the players seemed to have adapted to the pressing quickly. Ozil, Ramsey and Mkhitaryan were disappointing, though- a few times they could've created something/scored, but a poor touch/pass let them down. Centre-backs are obviously bad, but nothing will change in that regard until Koscielny's back.

    Very impressed by the performances of Guendouzi and Lichtsteiner, Torreira and Lacazette (when they came on). There's not a tougher test for a midfielder than playing against City for a midfielder, but Guendouzi did very well to retain the ball on a number of occasions. Defensively he was excellent, helped win the ball back a lot in midfield. There's no reason why Xhaka should be starting ahead of him. I'd play this team against Chelsea:
    Cech
    Bellerin-Mustafi-Sokratis-Lichsteiner
    Guendouzi-Torreira-Ramsey
    Ozil-Lacazette-Aubameyang

    Against lesser opposition he's usually good with his passing, but as soon as he's put under pressure he crumbles.
