A valiant defensive display but we we lose at home to the Gunners

Updated: Nov 26, 2023

On paper, we should have been smashed by Arsenal but we put up a valiant defensive display until they scored the only goal in the 89th minute. We have so many injuries that I'm surprised Thomas Frank managed to get out 11 fit players. Arsenal had nearly all the possession in the first half but we didn't look too troubled. We had a few half chances on the break but we should have scored with Rice clearing off the line from Mbeumo after a mistake by Ramsdale. Then they 'scored' just before half-time only to see it very narrowly ruled out for offside. The second half was similar pattern and Maupay had a header cleared off the line. Then the sickening blow, Havertz's winning header in the 89th minute.
