BREAKING NEWS: coming live from Fabrizio Romano, Arsenal legend Ian Wright has wasted no time is showing his disappointment with arsenal star performance against Manchester City. He said ” he was awful to watch yesterday i couldn’t understand he’s presence on the pitch he was just lost and a shadow of himself. His poor distribution let the Gunners down fact”.


Pundit Gary Neville criticized David Raya for his performance against Manchester City, particularly highlighting the Spaniard’s poor distribution during the goalless draw on Sunday. Neville, a former Manchester United defender, noted Raya’s struggles with his kicking and his tendency to fall over while attempting to kick the ball. He remarked that neither manager would be pleased with the quality of play from their respective teams, suggesting that both sides seemed cautious, perhaps waiting for the other to make a mistake.

Raya encountered difficulty in initiating plays from the back, a strategy that Arsenal under manager Mikel Arteta has emphasized this season. The 28-year-old goalkeeper managed to complete only 49% of his passes, with a long ball completion rate of just 38%. Signed from Brentford on loan with an obligation to make the move permanent next summer for £27 million, Raya was brought in to replace Aaron Ramsdale, with Arteta valuing his ability on the ball. However, Raya struggled in this aspect against the reigning champions. Despite this performance, Raya has made 30 appearances this season across all competitions, maintaining 14 clean sheets.

The encounter between Arsenal and Manchester City ended in a goalless draw, with neither team able to seize the momentum to secure a victory. With significant implications in the title race, both sides appeared content to settle for a point. As a result, Liverpool now sits atop the Premier League standings, enjoying a two-point lead over Arsenal, with City trailing by an additional point.

Arsenal legend Ian Wright offered insight into Arsenal’s defensive approach against Manchester City, suggesting that prioritizing not losing the game was more important than attempting to secure a win. Wright emphasized the need to respect Manchester City’s capabilities, especially at this stage of the season, and highlighted the challenges of playing at the Etihad Stadium. He stressed the importance of Arsenal maintaining their defensive solidity, particularly given the difficulty of securing a positive result against top teams like City. Despite having minimal possession and only two shots on target, Arsenal’s defensive performance was commendable, limiting City to just one shot on target throughout the game.
