It is funny how our offense looks completely different with a no 9 who want to stay middle. 

We have two problem, james need to be aware of what is behind him and Jorginho is struggling big time. Offensively it is all kova who does the ball progression, with the way arsenal attack us Jorginho didn't have the speed to cover ground whatsoever.

Lukaku, nice goal and good hold up play. Shout out to James for that assist.

Second goal, a shout out to Alonso for keeping that move going and a cool finish by James.

Thought maybe James had conceded a penalty.

Thought playing a 4-5-1 Arsenal looked dangerous at times though lack a final ball.

Should be a good second half.

Anyone else feeling like Azpi seems to be on heavy legs? Not sure why, just doesn't seem 100% comfortable like he usually does.

He has uncharacteristically let a couple through balls go right by him where both he and I were shocked he didn't get a foot on that.

Attack has looked good though.  They are scared of Lukaku.  Jame's goal was a direct result of how much attention Lukaku was getting from the defense opening things up for other players.

They shouldn't cheer him but when he's the centre stage at the subject of racism and with our fanbase having one of the worst reputations, its not exactly effing smart and once again brings down the feel good factor around the club.

He's an Arsenal player that just tried to win a penalty by throwing himself to the floor, of course they are going to boo him.

Jorginho having one of his off games. He’s being closely followed so can’t get involved in our build up, and he is defensively suspect losing constantly the position and being easily bypassed. That’s where he suffers and we need a cover for this type of games. Otherwise, we’ve been very good going forward and having Lukaku has made a difference. James has been fantastic going forward, not helping much Azpi in the defensive duties and lucky not to get a penalty given for his tackle on Saka. Alonso so far has been good and Kovacic working well for two bringing the ball forward and defensively ok. We need to keep the intensity because they’ve had chances once we go to easy mode.

Mostly good, though were losing a bit of the control towards the end of the first half. Need to make sure they don't get an early 2nd half goal, and regain control. Maybe bring Ziyech on in a bit.

On the Saka booing, like many others I feel it's no problem at all, as long as it doesn't cross the line. 

Regardless of his age or overall quality, he's Arsenal star player, so if there's anyone we should be booing it's him. No point trying to destabilise Xhaka or a scrub like Holding (well, now we do have reason after that tackle).
