After a win for the Gunners against city after a long run losing streak, Arsenal legend,
Ian Wright on Arsenal CB William Saliba: “You have to look at him and think to yourself, Saliba could play for Real Madrid right now, no danger. He could play for any of them, could play for anyone he wants.
“So, for us to sign him up because he’s at that age where you think, where are you going now? In the Premier League, I don’t care what anyone says, it is the best league in the world and he’s here, he’s here for another four years, he’s only going to enhance himself and get better.”
Legendary Arsenal defender Martin Keown after the Man City victory: ‘I just want to say, by the way, the two central defenders – as an ex-central defender for Arsenal – they were immense today. Saliba and Gabriel, they ate Haaland! And it’s not often you can say that because he’s a wonderful player.”
Former Premier League referee Mark Clattenburg says Mateo Kovačić and Michael Oliver were both very lucky in the #Arsenal vs City game: “Mateo Kovačić was a very lucky boy and so is referee Michael Oliver, given Arsenal went on to win regardless of Manchester City keeping all 11 men on the pitch.
“Kovačić could have been dismissed not once, but twice. His first yellow could have been upgraded to red if VAR John Brooks had told Oliver to take a second look at his nasty tackle from behind on Martin Ødegaard.
“But when Kovačić then caught Declan Rice late on the ankle, the City midfielder could easily have been shown a second yellow.”
Premier league legend had something to say on Arsenal win over Man City.
Alan Shearer says Arsenal deserved to beat Man City: “You could already see Arsenal’s squad is stronger now than it was last season, but nothing shows it more than sending someone on to change a big game like that.
“Yes, they got a bit of luck with the deflection off Nathan Ake for their goal but Arteta will say they absolutely deserved their win and I don’t think anyone could argue with that – City simply did not do enough.”
Darren Bent after the Arsenal win over Man City: “It is a massive result. If they’re fit I only want to see Rice Partey and Ødegaard in the midfield. That is Arsenal’s best three and one of the best in the league.”
Cesc Fabregas gives Mikel Arteta credit for bringing on Martinelli at half time in the #Arsenal win over City today: “It’s big, it’s a big statement for Arsenal. It’s a long time since they’ve won against Manchester City, so this is a big moment for the players.
“It was a good call bringing on Martinelli, attacking the space and taking on Walker one-on-one. It was a 50-50 game, but if anyone deserved to win, it was Arsenal.”
