Very good first half, could have been up by more. Am a bit worried how many players we'll lose in the second half. No news on Debuchy yet?

One of our best performances of the season. I get the feeling that Alexis never wants to be subbed! Naughty from Arnautovic on Debuchy who is being reported as having a dislocated shoulder so definitely out against City, at the very least.

Now just need to follow it up with a result against City, where I'd be happy with a draw.

To be honest, I know its schadenfreude, but I am glad Debuchy got injured, hopefully it will reinforce the need that we need to strength the defence this month

OK, that is a bit nuts Not sure how long Debuchy will be out, but I hope that Bellerin gets the nod ahead of Chambers at RB.

A good result marred by a dopey refereeing performance. Arnautovic should have been red-carded for a dangerous challenge on Debuchy. In rugby that sort of challenge is a seeding off so can't see why it isn't in football yet. If you don't know that shoving someone whilst they're in the air and off-balance is dangerous and whilst you're not making any attempt to play the ball then you shouldn't call yourself a professional footballer.

Looks like Sanogo has gone on loan to Crystal Palace. Hopefully he should get some game time there and we can see if he is able to cope with the premier league.

Looks like Wenger is doing his transfer dealings early this January by agreeing a price of about £2.4m with Legia Warsaw for Krystian Bielik. Hopefully there will be a few more players coming, in especailly defensive ones.

I think he is more of a defensive midfielder, so good position to fill, but a few players who should be ready to fit in the squad now would be more helpful.

I don't have a problem with buying talent for the future, as long as it's supplemented with a more immediate solution. Arteta and Debuchy both ruled out for three months today. We're not so bad at RB with Bellerin and Chambers, but the problem is if we lose either Kos or Per and then Chambers has to play CB (or Monreal).

Is Kallstrom still available?

The thing with this kid (and every other one) is how many have disappeared into insignificance, for every Cesc there is a Bischoff

I like the look of Coquelin, but with Arteta out would like to see some experience and muscle brought in to help develop him and Bielik. I would be happy with GŁndoğan and Reid brought in, both should be under £20m combined, and the reduction of Podolski £100,000 a week should mean that wages are not a problem as they would both command about £60k a week

How are we all feeling about today's game? Man Utd, Southampton and Spurs all winning yesterday would suggest it's a must-win game, but I'd be happy with a draw. While we shipped six to them last season, I personally don't think it was anything like the Chelsea and Liverpool capitulations. We can get at the City defence, the worry is whether we can keep them out at the other end. Should be entertaining at least.

Bit of a cakewalk against a City side without Toure who looked like they had no plan B and were ponderous and unwilling to sling some high balls in.

Deserved the win, but any hint of Sanchez offside for the 2nd ? in line with the scorer and blocking Harte's view ?

Nope. Apart from 10 - 15 minutes at the start of the second half, I thought that we contained City very well. Santi Man of the Match without doubt, but huge praise for Coquelin too. The most mature player during that City spell of pressure.

You played very well today; composed in possession for most of the time and put in the hard work when you didn't have the ball. No complaints about the result because were were well below our best.

I agree that Carzola was man of the match.

City always play like that. So, so dull to watch. They always try and get to the byline, pull back and tap in and repeat Zzzzzzz

Except when Silva, Nasri and Toure are playing rapid passes to each other in an around the box and try to walk it in. If anything, we don't get down the lines and sling enough crosses in and don't try enough long range shots.

I have to say that today, we were pretty poor going forward, but credit to the way Arsenal denied Silva the space and shut Aguero out of the game.
