Haaland's face is what happens when I ignore the presets and create my own character.

There’s a pattern forming in this game now. Arsenal look very comfortable at the back and the space is there for them to spring on the counter.

The ref doesn't want to book anyone.

They wouldn't do this is a regular fixture.

Yup but the ref isn’t helping with zero yellow cards. Cities passing just isn’t there

You can't just "decide to let things go", the standards for yellows should be the fucking same regardless of who's playing.

City had the first 25 mins. Arsenal had the last 15. There hasn't been much testing on either goalie. Ake maybe should have tested the goalie more earlier on, and Jesus scuffs one wide.

What is the matter with referees? They seem to have no idea about football! MacAllister is booked for a total non foul then Gross is booked for contact going for a 50-50 ball. Are player not supposed to go for loose balls? If they do one of them is always going to be there first so there is always going to be unavoidable contact from whoever is second to the ball. Whilst that may be ruled as foul I’m baffled why anyone believes that contact deserves card. It’s a contact sport and to compete some contact is inevitable.

The Mac Allister booking was clearly a yellow, the ball had gone and he grabbed the player and pulled him back.

Gross I agree with, it was a 50/50.
