City struggling to play out from deep at the moment. Karl Matchett6 August 2023 16:38169133605832’ - Arsenal 0-0 Man CityRamsdale’s errant touch has the ball spinning towards his own goal - with Haaland closing in. He just about gets there ahead of the striker to clear, before Alvarez soon after touches the ball away once it’s out for a free-kick. Yellow card for him, tremendous roars for Arsenal fans as though they’ve just lifted the title.
Football as we know it, very much back. Apart from the goals. Karl Matchett6 August 2023 16:34169133575628’ - Arsenal 0-0 Man CityYellow card for Havertz for a very cynical trip on Stones as he rampaged away through the centre. Arsenal fans unhappy their team has another card but that was as blatant as you’ll see all year. City unhurried at the moment; Arsenal have had less of the ball but more urgency and dangerous moments, save for Rodri’s long-rangers. Both managers looking animated on the touchline. Karl Matchett6 August 2023 16:29169133563424’ - Arsenal 0-0 Man CityBig chance, big block! White spins into the box, Havertz’s shot on the turn is saved and the rebound from Martinelli is straight into Stones’ chest.

The best have fallen to Arsenal’s new signing Havertz, but he’s been denied twice - Rodri has twice gone close from long range for Man City. Karl Matchett6 August 2023 16:561691337059HT - Arsenal 0-0 Man CityAnd that’s the whistle. Strong first 45 from the Gunners overall, if only in bursts. City the more controlled team as you’d exect and they don’t look ruffled by anything Arsenal have thrown their way, but haven’t made much happen either. Karl Matchett6 August 2023 16:50169133677244’ - Arsenal 0-0 Man CityVery, very nearly 1-0 - Rodri lobs Ramsdale from the halfway line and his shot just drops on top of the net! What a way to end the first half that would have been. Martinelli is then robbed by Alvarez and his cross from the right also beats the Arsenal keeper - but Gabriel is on hand to clear from inside the six-yard box before Haaland can tap home.

A lovely reverse pass sees Saka into the box and behind his man, he cuts it back and the German’s right-footed shot is very well blocked by Ortega! Kovacic launches a counter with a fine dribble and pass, but Haaland has no support and it peters out. Karl Matchett6 August 2023 16:42169133628336’ - Arsenal 0-0 Man CitySaka winds his way past Akanji but is forced a little wider than he would have wanted as he bends a left-footed shot in. It flies well wide, but it underlines Arsenal’s minor attacking threat superiority in much of this first half.
