Arsenal failed to control the game and paid that with two goals conceded. This made the game not excellent but good.
Ospina has been terrible (this is why I would have preferred to keep Emi Martinez and sell him) as well as Mustafi (looked scared much more than the youngsters). Mertesacker has been the only defensive played in control of what was happening around him.
Elneny did what I would have expected by Mustafi. Played simple, showed a difference between him, the young team mates and the opponents. He is diligent and versatile. The egyptian isn’t a great midfielder but is very efficient. Thanks to him Willock played brillantly. This guy reminds me to Abou Diaby: progression, technical abilities, vision, a good dribbling. I hope he will work on his structure because he can be really a player for the future.
I admired what Nelson did during the pre-season but keep calm, he isn’t ready for the first team (Keown compared him to Neymar ). He has qualities, but mentally looks like a typical english boy: one man band. He plays for himself and not for the team-mates. He needs to improve his decision making and naturally his structure. I think his legs are the half of the half of the half of the half of Kolasinac’s legs. Lack of humility.
The same humility which I have seen watching AMN. I lost the count of how many positions he covered since his debut with the first team: right CB, right winger, left winger, left wing-back, right wing-back, advanced playmaker, central midfielder. He plays fully focused and is trying to improve.
Few words to spend for Wilshere (I pray he will remain injury free because a sane Wilshere >>>>>> Ozil), Walcott (I don’t know a professional player like him) and Olivier Giroud (welcome into the 100 club).
