“It wasn’t as bad as it could have been” is a bit of cold comfort, I guess? Arsenal looked reasonably good in the first half, Denis Suarez made his Arsenal debut, and other than that it was just another road struggle for Arsenal as they lost to Manchester City today.
There’s no shame in losing to one of the best teams in recent Premiership history, to be sure, but a loss is still a loss, and oh look there’s Manchester United leapfrogging Arsenal into fifth place. Still a long way to go, but Arsenal aren’t putting the kind of pressure on the top four they need to at this point, and today’s loss is for sure a blow in that pursuit of fourth place (or better).
