uuuuhhhhhgggrrggghhh!! Getting a bit pissed off with how many times they're in slightly late in the challenge and Dicksplat with the whistle plays on and forgets the sheer volume of niggly fouls from the *%^@ kickers. We need to show some steel in midfield and stop dropping off. We still win this in my mind.

Kind of typical arsenal. Lots of the ball not enough cut and thrust and give away a cheap goal with far too much space on a counter attack.

Ref needs to get hold of all the law kicks, it’s fine that in most of them he has played the correct advantage to us, but he won’t register those as fouls and book players for accumulation. Burnley are the masters or the needless late kick.

Cellabos has looked good. Aubameyang wide nullifies so much of his game.

Var correctly rules out a Nelson goal but there was an earlier one that sent Monreal away with two up for support that was very tight. I thought the idea with var was that linos let it go if it’s toght and let var deal with it.

We scored early and then played fu@@en tippy tappy. Leno looked totally out of his class every time there was a corner and we tried to be too clever time in our own half all the time. Hardly any long balls where we were able to make them struggle.

I am more than a little pissed off with that half of football because we failed to try and break quickly instead being happy to square the ball or play it back. Too often our forward players were taking the ball with their back to the goal.

I didn't think there were any bad players on the field but I really liked the effort from Ceballos and Guendouzi. our central defence have struggled with the high ball.

I’m not sure Sokratis and Luiz is going to be a good pair.

I think you might need some younger legs from Chambers or Holding alongside one of them as they can react to danger better.

We have to find a way to sort our defence. Every cross, corner, long ball is causing us all sort of issues both individually and collectively.

Leno has to be more commanding as well. To many half-hearted punches.

Time for Pépé I think. We need to get goals because Burnley look like they could score another easily.

AMN needs to a bit better decision making and a bit more sense of urgency in dangerous positions near the box.

Ramsey May score more but based on Ceballos combination play I’d suggest Ceballos will create way more.

Tackle high up the pitch, who was it that said liverpool winning the ball high is their playmaker?

Torreira on for Willock for me. He's just dropped a bit.

Aubie should have scored. Criminal he didn't even get a shot off.

Burnley finally get a yellow card and it's Barnes ruining their last attack. I think that's the just desserts I was looking for. Pépé - a really poor ball to Aubameyang when they were 2 on 1 - nailed on goal if he gets that right, but some nice flashes from him, more and more promising. We should have scored at lease one more from the chances we had a think. Bit concerning with defensive frailty and playing out from the back was hit and miss if i'm being generous - we did have at least one great attack when we swept through them. But underwhelming overall if I'm honest bit like the Newcastle result, but two wins out of two. Don't think we'll get anything at all from Liverpool away on these two performances so far.

Well we got the points but jeez there were some problems exposed in our match plan. Closed down time and again at the back. Luis really needs to clear the ball with his head more than 6 metres right to their players and Leno on crosses and corners -OMG.

The positives were Guendouzi, Ceballos, Pépé and I thought Willock did some good things but not often enough. We play like that next week and we will be slaughtered.

Three precious points but we can already see we are going to have to beat teams Kevin Keegan style because our back four is shocking at the moment. I thought Leno showed to day the one big weakness in his game, coming for crosses and corners.

Admittedly you don't see that many teams with the aerial threat that Burnley possess but it just feels we don't have enough defenders who really want or know how to defend.

Ceballos was excellent today and I though Willock was very good too. That young midfield three has a certain dynamism that is lacking when Xhaka plays. Whether they can be trusted away from home I don't know.

Pépé looks incredibly quick with his feet. Will be interesting to see how he develops.

Aubameyang with a moment of class to win the game.

Could have cut and paste that comment from last week.

We should ask Warrior to make a shortcut key for that phrase to save us time.

First of all what a baller that Cellobos is, great game. Thought at half time, should had took Willcock or Nelson off, put Luiz in midfield , and Brought on Chambers to get more height as we were being bombarded, and let Luiz have more input to the attack.

Logically, I should want a draw in the City vs Scum game. But the emotional and admittedly irrational side of me, wants the scum to win in order to ease my tormented mind about City going undefeated. I should be more concerned about Liverpool if last season is anything to go by. And I do. Hoping Soton can come back from a goal down, although I think the best they can hope for is getting a draw out of it.

I see a lot of positives from Pépé & Cellebaros coming through in the future. Both are upgrades to Ramsey and Iwobi. Give Emery time and he will work strategies to leverage their skills.

But our defence is shockingly fragile. Is it psychological or just insufficient organisation. Who is in charge?

Another thing, Cellebaros is our new Alexis.

Ceballos was brilliant and is the new Carzola with his footwork but with more drive forward. Couldn't have asked for a better performance. Apart from the Burnley goal I don't know why we were seen as fragile. Burnley bombed it in sure but rarely did it lead to anything threatening. What I don't understand is why Leno can't pick the ball up and throw it overarm like Lehman used to. Would be quicker than trying to drop and pass with the feet all the time. More accurate too overall I saw tonnes more positives than negative.

If City’s new found wealth stops those four teams winning the league, for me that’s a benefit that comes from it because I don’t see Arsenal under Kroenke stopping them. I’m really not going to get stuffy about how City acquired it and whether it’s fair. If it stops those four from winning stuff, good!

So even if the league turns into a procession year after year you won't mind so long as Spurs, Liverpool, Chelsea and United don't win?

I'd rather see a good scrap between two or more of those, even if Arsenal are out of the mix, thanks.

Can’t see any evidence that the league is turning into much of a procession, based on last season. What is happening is that on the occasions City have won the league recently, Manchester United, Tottenham, Chelsea and Liverpool haven’t. So I’m fine with that.
