This far, it's one of the best Arsenal performances I have seen this season. Really strange that the result is all square. Our forward play and domination throughout the half was a delight to watch and instantly you can see how having quality players all start games together can affect team confidence and performance.
Ozil was sublime with his passes, creating two chances within the first six minutes. Alexis was forceful and should have scored at least one. Lacazette was making really great runs and had a perfect chance to score which Pickford saved. Pickford was usually was the main difference as we totally dominated the half. However, Xhaka and his brain went missing when a simple pass could have saved the situation, dilly-dallying by the Switzerland International allowed a tackle which was a clear foul to lead to a Rooney goal.
We continued to press and got our goal through player of the month of September, Nacho Monreal. We deserved to have gone ahead but the half-time whistle brought reality. Hopefully, we continue to play this way and get a winner.
