Arteta has questionable game tactically

There can be no disputing it, Arteta didn't have his best day in the dugout against Villa and it started with his team selection.

Zinchenko came in for Kiwior, and Gabriel Jesus was played through the middle, a position that Kai Havertz had made his own of late. Neither player justified their selection in the starting side.

Then there were the substitutions that didn't have the impact the boss wanted. Overall, the club's performance was poor on a day that handed the title advantage back to City.
