Who was the Man Of The Match? Ferran Torres
Ferran Torres had a fantastic opening season at Manchester City after signing for £20.8 million from Valencia. This time round, more will be expected of the dynamic Spanish international. The forward persistently worried the visiting side, contributing to three of City’s 5 goals today- two goals and one assist. His phenomenal display against The Gunners is a potential clue that the 21-year-old seems to be prepared to step up another level. Who needs Ronaldo?
This is the first time Arsenal have lost their opening three Premier League fixtures since the 1954-1955 season. The Gunners are also waiting for their first goal of the season, this is the third time in the gunner’s history they’ve failed to score in the opening three matches of the league campaign. Approximately £140 million spent on new signings, Will Stan Kroenke be worried? We shouldn’t judge under -fire manager Arteta just yet though, yes they won 6-0 against West Brom in the midweek but this is Manchester City at the end of the day, everyone’s favourite to win the league. Anyways, enough negativity.
