Messi gets another Ballon GOAT with Rapinoe, Allison and De Ligt in tow, Liverpool and Leicester keep everyone else at bay, Dele leads Spurs down the Alli way and at the Emirates, Emery has had his day.
All Chelsea & Ajax do is score in a 4-4 draw, Inter take the lead against Dortmund but can’t close the door, and against Slavia Prague, Barcelona are frighteningly poor.
It’s no surprise that the Canaries pressed high and you could see the fear in Otamendi’s eyes as Buendia slipped it to Pukki to steal the prize, similarly Sokratis was out of practise as Arsenal deflated like a torn water mattress…
Manchester United beat Spurs and it’s all good so far for Solskjaer with De Gea so sharp. At the London Stadium Nasri cut open Arsenal at one end and Fabianski kept them out at the other while wins for Liverpool and Chelsea kept the Reds ahead at the top, and the Blues in the Champions League spots.

Positionally, however, it feels as if he can’t help but be sacrificed. If Ozil is fit, Mkhitaryan won’t play in his best position – as a #10. Due to the lack of other good wide options, his most-likely role will be on the right, where he’ll be expected to come inside and link up with Ozil and the striker, leaving space for Bellerin to overlap (and put in terrible crosses).
That a club with the stature, expectations and standards of Juventus were willing to replace their greatest ever goalkeeper with Wojciech Szczęsny should have been the subtlest of clues to Arsenal that they shouldn’t sell. When their options were a visibly declining Cech and a too-short-to-ever-be-good-enough Ospina, and one of Europe’s leading clubs wanted their man, Arsenal perhaps should have realized what they had. Instead, the Pole was sold to Turin for a pitiful 12m Euros.
