    I'm surprised this post has so many likes, we're 2 games in and 6pts on the board. I agree today looked like Burnley could equalise and ruin our start but they didn't, perhaps last season they would have. Our defence is still vulnerable but that will improve with Luiz. I also want to see Torreira start, he may be small but he does a good job. I agree we are capable of much more but to expect it within the 1st 2 games is a bit much, especially when we're winning.

    I agree - Emery has not been shy to include our youngsters and newbies, and it's bound to take a few games for this new-look side to bed in together

    Exactly! Nelson & Willock starting both games, people have been wanting the youngsters to be included and that's what Emery is doing. I know Pepe will start ahead of Nelson but Willock could cement his place, he's doing well. And so too is Emery :)

    Good game.Important that we got 3 points with city and Sp**s drawing.Dani is some player.He was running the mid field and can dribble out of almost anything.Lacazatte was ok scored a brilliant goal.Emery needs to find a way to fit laca and Auba in a front two because Pierre emrik should be in an around the goal and not chasing back from wings.Pepe absolutely murdered a Burnley player with a nugget.Burnley are the worst then stroke city.They hoofed the ball from the 1st min to the last hope they get relegated..And I almost forgot we need to stop playing from the back because sooner rather then later it's going to cost us.If we can Draw at liverpool and beat spuds title challenge is well an truly on with bellerin and tierney coming back.

    And that was 9 months ago mate. I'm comparing us to last week. Think we'll have to agree to disagree.

    Holding, Bellerin, Tierney, Özil coming in.
    Pepe, Luiz and Torreira gathering form.
    I think we still have a couple of gears in us

    No, we are keeping them fresh for the title fight at the tail end of the season. In Turkish league

    Unfortunately, I couldn't see the game, so I have to see back tomorrow. But I've heard it was a great performance.

    Very average performance.

    Midfield did well. The defense was very much Arsenal like from Wenger final years. The attack was disjointed and it just looked ugly overall.

    Emery get 2/10 performance. Trying to defend at home 1-0 goal lead against Burnley. Yuck.

    Wouldn't go that far bro but happy with the 3 points. We've all seen these first home games end much worse when we've not been at full strength.

    Not the best performance, but apparently the first time in 10 years we've won the first two games of the season so can't be too critical. Good to see both our strikers scoring. Auba on the wing is a waste, Unai needs to find a way to play both him and Laca in areas where they can terrorize the opposition goal.

    Defense obviously leaves a lot to be desired, but I expect it to improve when Holding, Bellerin, and Tierney return. Today reminded me of those Wenger days when you're life would flash before your eyes whenever the opposition lumped the ball into the box. Leno needs to be stronger when collecting crosses, he was very shaky coming off his line to claim.

    Dani is one confident s.o.b. Love that he always wants and demands the ball and is looking to get himself open for the pass. Sometimes I felt he overdid it with the touches, but for the most part, they all served a purpose.

    Pepe showed some flashes of brilliance as well, including some silky touches. It also looks like he's confident with either foot which is good. Made a mess of the counter at the end where Auba should have been played in for a goal though.

    It was offside - the Lino called it straight away. I didn’t celebrate the goal and was surprised they bothered with VAR to confirm it tbh.

    But yeah, Dean’s a Cnut.

    I'm smiling? Very happy with the win! 13 days sober and clean!

    But that was average performance no matter how you want to spin it!

    Not perfect but if you're expecting perfection with 2 teenagers and 2 new signings starting then you're bound to be disappointed. There's enough to be excited about.

    Wasn't expecting perfection.

    I just call it as I see it! We can do better!
