3. Arteta’s team selection
With Manchester City up next in the league, many thought that if there were a game that Arteta would rotate his squad, an away trip to France midweek would be when.
But as it turns out, Arteta went basically full strength. The likes of Fabio Vieira, Emile Smith Rowe, Reiss Nelson, and Eddie Nketiah, all of whom could have started, began on the bench.
Giving Saka and co. a much-needed breather ahead of City on the weekend could have been just the tonic, but instead, it was another tough match that many hope won’t affect Arsenal physically against City.
