  • We were robbed on goals but our performance was poor. We didn't deserve to draw ugly this is an important loss and we need to go shopping for a proper CM partnership with depth Arteta and Flamini should not be starter.

  • Two wrong offside calls that robbed two goal scoring opportunities and a handball not given...3 there...6-6...how is that not robbed?

  • it was a match we could loose, good is Arsenal has poorer form while playing superb Everton (draw always something), Napoli for nothing and at City where everybody is loosing...

  • Beanzville, what are you on about me chill out? I'm trying to get some sense out of the Arsenal fans who are just blaming the ref for getting battered, I'm not bothered by the result, if I'm honest as a Liverpool fan i'd have preferred a draw.

  • Wow... non-Arsenal fans must have a field day... They sound more bitter than the losing fans... Guess they are hoping we will slip like United is. Not Gonna happen... IMike chill out

  • Arsenal lose 6-3 and still the fans can't accept a loss... How can you blame a three goal difference on the refs and the FA you must be joking. You were well and truly beaten and by the run of play you were lucky it wasn't more. I remember seeing nothing but complaints about the ref when you lost to Villa and then complaining about United and Dortmund getting lucky when they beat you, You lot just can't accept losing! Better get used to it without Koscielny

  • AFC were robbed? lmao you must be joking...

  • Arsenal is not serious

  • Well done FA for putting this match after wednesday night away trip againts Napoli. Players could rest less than 72 hours. BTSports/Skysports could broadcast this Sunday afternoon also, but we are not sheiks I know, It could be seen in the match also. 2 wrongly disallowed goal by Giroud and Bendtner, they were not offside, Nacho and Walcott neither in goalscoring opportunites. Milner dived for the pen, just like on Tuesday, Yaya stamped on Wilsh(?) and didn't even get a yellow, and It was closer to red card. Didn't get a penalty for Zabaleta's handball also. We had many chances, Giroud 4-5, Wilshere 2, Walcott, etc. The full time score is not reflecting the game's flow well. There wasn't any big differences between the two teams. Should have been a draw with correct referees.

  • ozil ๏̯͡๏

  • Arsenal is a JOKE

  • AFC were robbed

  • AFC were robbed

  • bcal you know what I'm not gona drop to you standard you little bitch

  • @Bcal - Hahahaha the one guy trying to stick up for you and you just call him that ahahaha you're definitely 7 years old

  • When I've seen the result, I couldn't speak for 10 minutes....

  • bcal: racist cunt. Die motherfucker!

  • bcal don't drop to their level mate

  • #Throttled.

  • Bcal, i don't support City, you look rather silly now.

  • are you just kidding?? Wojciech Szczesny only got 4.60?? really not professional rating!!!!

  • @LeZeuz What a pathetic response. If we had a multi-billionaire backing us you wouldn't even be considering City being able to win the title.

  • poor @bcal, when was the last time you won a trophy?

  • @iMike 'Weak defence'. Vermaelen is still a great defender, definitely better than Demechelis. I wonder when you'll realise the only strong opponent you've faced away from home is Chelsea; yet you've still managed to squander most of those results. City is not a 'team' just a pile of overpriced ego's with enough individual talent to win home matches. Your weaknesses will show in the long run.

  • @bcal I am not a fan, so shushi.

  • @spiralwave Did I say celebrate? I said 'disassociates' themselves when their team loses. 'Arse-anal'? Jesus christ, pull yourself and your petty insults together mate.

  • @Bcal - Stop crying you got destroyed because you have a weak defense. You Arsenal fans have become even more deluded than usual because of a good start to the season. Your decline starts now, your only decent defensive player is out and your average defense is now even worse. Can't wait to see how many Chelsea score past you next week. You'll find yourselves in the battle for 3rd/4th place with Liverpool, Chelsea, Everton and Spurs before long.

  • @LeZeus I would be embarrassed losing to a Championship team with a multi hundred million pound team. Much more so than losing like this in the hardest fixture of the season. Bandwagon fans everywhere.

  • Walcott has comeback, Podolski when ?? Podolski is very important, when giroud is grounded. Can Arsenal keep running on the top until January 2014, next week, Chelsea waited.

  • I think trash yet you spout nonsense of Giroud being better than Ageuro

  • @bcal *victories

  • @bcal losing is part of the game, but an overrated team getting this abused, is not.

  • @spiralwave Chelsea are also horrific away from home, similar to City. You seem like the kind of fan who celebrates their teams defeats and then disassociates themselves completely as soon as they lose. When City don't lose the title I reckon you'll change to a different team.

  • still top of the table :)

  • @MHoy, the number is to big to fit in youtube search engine, lol.

  • @Titou14:guys like you who think trash

  • Classic

  • Ozil's defensive contribution is non-existant LOL

  • 6-3 HOLY SHIT i gotta go to youtube now !!

  • @spiralwave Do you see us losing to Sunderland, Villa and Cardiff away from home?

  • @spiralwave I only see the number 3 - the amount of points we are still ahead of you. The title race isn't about big scorelines, it's about consistency at and away from home. Something which you severely, severely lack.

  • Ozil is a flop , Madrid were smart to get rid of him, he pants more than a cheap HO as soon as 70 minutes are hit. Only effective against weak teams & blonde bimbos

  • Princeofpersie you smoking grass if you think people have said that

  • And they say giroud is better than aguero!!! WTF are you guys smoking?

  • Arsenal seems weakest amongst those finished 2nd in champions league.

  • City smashed us fair do's but the Referee & lino's butt fucked us 4 offsides that we're on & a blatent penatly ....

  • Sack le clown

  • ozil ran butthurt

  • @spiralwave You forgot: 0-1 vs Sunderland 2-3 vs Cardiff 2-3 vs Aston Villa 1-2 vs Chelsea

  • Ozil? HAHAHAHA FLOP!

  • six and the city !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Agueröooooooooooooooooooo!

  • So funny that all the Arsenal fans were describing their defense as unstoppable, and today it looked worse than any team I'v ever seen. Overrated and absolutely awful, and it's only worse now without Koscielny. Say good bye to the title

  • bullshit

  • Arsenal's defense is embarrassing haha

  • @Rosty, I mean over the course of this month since your only good defender is injured, even with him you were getting ripped apart on every attack, your defense is looking awful and the decline starts now

  • This comment has been deleted.

  • Error was by Flamini...Are they seriously going off goal.com? Arsenal is getting mauled.

  • Terrible defending from both sides, but makes for an entertaining game.

  • What a goal from Walcott.

  • "Down the table you go" you realize that Arsenal is 5 points clear? staying at the top of the table for now. props to City, playing well, good game.

  • gg man city are just too dominant at home

  • @ Thanh ? ?

  • @Thanh City scored 2 already , wake up !

  • Arsenal's defence is so overrated, Spurs may have lost 6-0 but even they weren't broken down as easily as Arsenal have been. Average defense and without Koscielny they are going to struggle even more. Down the table you go

  • MC 1-7 Arsenal

  • Oh come on whoscored...I know Toure made a mistake but he plays really good, he should have around 6.5-7

  • No wonder real madrid sold him

  • I can see this being 3-2 or 2-2. Arsenal are looking lethal on the counter attack,not as much as City though.

  • M city 5 - 1 Arsenal. Sure

  • M City 6-1 Arsenal

  • Arsenal defense is very poor

  • Agueröooooooooooooooooooooo!

  • Arsenal 2:1 Mancity

  • As a neutral i hope to see atleast 6 goals.

  • 0-0 hahaha

  • 1-2

  • 4-1

  • 2-1 to Man City even though I'm an Arsenal fan. Late winner.

  • 1-2 to the Arsenal. Come on boys!

  • 0-1 or 0-2.

  • 2-3 to arsenal

  • As a neutral I hope Arsenal win!

  • City 3-0 Arsenal i think.

  • @spiraIwave WTF!!

  • @spiraIwave WTF!!

  • @spiraIwave WTF!!

  • @spiraIwave WTF!!

  • This is Arsenal no man-utd or Tottenham

  • This is Arsenal no manure or Tottenham

  • Arsenal will win City 1-3 Arsenal COYG

  • Agueröoooooooooooo

  • COYG !?!?!?

  • better start with walcott instead of wilshere i think..

  • 5:45 am starting time. Fuuuuuuuuuuck.

  • Can't wait, 2-1 to the Arsenal..

  • Looks like someone's having fun giving people mass downvotes ...

  • Everything could happen, this is so unpredictable ! Arsenal can play some brilliant game, but they can also play like they did against Napoli ... Same thing for Manchester City ! But anyway, it will be a great game !

  • 1:1 Arsenal loves the Ethihad stadium. Of course on paper city looks like the sure winner but arsenal is able to gain a draw. They just need a bit of luck and good performance of özil, unfortunately he is inconsistent, but on a good they he can be brilliant. And don't forget the fact that Demichellis is really weak, don't know why pellegrini plays him so often.

  • Probably City will win this, Arsenal seem to be a bit tired

  • 0-2 ARSENAL

  • With Kun & Negredo "on fire" Citizens win 3-1.

  • City will most likely win the prem tho that doesn't change the fact the Arsene Wenger is the Best Manager in the League

  • Man City have the best home attack (29 goals) and the best home defense (two conceded), while Arsenal have the joint-best away attack (14 scored) and the best away defense (five conceded).

  • Sagna's back :D

  • Arsenal have got them selves into a position where they can afford to drop points to & still be able to challenge for the league, Being an Arsenal fan I can only see one result come Saturday morning & that's 3-1 City.

  • the Citizens will be facing the most in form team in EPL, last time Arsenal visited Etihad, Walcott run riot at a sorry City side, City are probably the better team on the sheet but this game can go either way and we all know that Arsenal can score and defend and so can City, overall, City have more weakness points than Arsenal in their squad, im an Arsenal fan but im going for a 2-2 draw. salut

  • Arsenal if wins this , i can say they can go on to win the league IF they lose this , till feb they will be back in hunt for their most precious possession '4th spot' lets see if they have the balls to go all the way tomm

  • Arsenal cant win this 3-0 FOR CITY

  • My prediction:Manchester City3:0Arsene

  • +austin4sports says ...Manchester City are favourites...3-2win

  • I believe it's the game that can decide a title win in the league.

  • It's the game, that Arsene is waiting for. I believe it's the reason for the poor performance recently and the squad is prepared. It's time Pelegrini's team drops points at home. 0-2 COYG!

  • RIP Arsenal !! 4-5 goals for city.

  • 2-1 to city ...

  • Suarez Sturridge were running riot at Eglish defences, they met Arsenal, they hardly saw the ball and conceded two and managed themselves one shot on target, City do have alot of quality but they do leak some goals, i do not see City having more possession not creating more, bookies are favouring City because of their home record this year, Arsenal have a tremendous away record as well and i dont think anybody can take Arsenal lightly, i know for a fact, Walcott is starting in this game along with Ramsey and Ozil, Rosicky should play for Wilshire and Flamini must replace Arteta if things dont go well, i predict both teams to score and possibly a point each, noway Arsenal will lose 6 points against City and Chelsea, one draw, one win, take your pic! salut

  • is a 2-2

  • 1-1 or 0-2

  • 0-2

  • 0-2

  • I don't understand the predictions for an Arsenal win. If you're just being extremely optimistic fair enough, but there's no way you can genuinely believe Arsenal will beat the side with probably the best home record in Europe. I think 3-1 City, Arsenal are consistent and are a great team this year, but I still think City have more quality and the home advantage means everything to City

  • Im not sure about City winning this, but Arsenal will drop points here.

  • 3-1

  • This match will give us a hint whether Arsenal is ready to win championship(s) or not.

  • 0-2

  • 0-2

  • City should take this one 2-1

  • This is going to come down to how tired Arsenal are after tonight. City will be tired but mightily lifted by their performance against Bayern. But remember, Arsenal beat Bayern as well

  • Have to agree, does look like Arsenal defence vs City attack.but remember Dortmund.Also, city known to concede a few.I'm going for 2-1 for Arsenal

  • 0-2

  • Best attack in the EPL @ 41 Goal (man city) Vs Best defence in the EPL @ 11 Goals (arsenal)

  • It feels like a few of the Arsenal players are becoming burnt-out. This part of the season will test squad depth and it's where City will have a big advantage. This still should be a very even game but City are favourites

  • David Silva.

  • This game is gonna be about Man City Attack vs Arsenal FC Defence
