Arsenal fell to a 2-1 defeat against Manchester City at the Etihad today, and a stat revealed by Sky Sports showed just how passive they were.
The Gunners took the lead, but never appeared to have control of the game. Arsene Wenger’s side had just 39% of possession through the 90 minutes, which is testament to just how dominant City were.
Arsenal have plenty of creative talent within their ranks, but they did not get going today. This stat highlighted by Sky Sports in the 70th minute reaffirms just how bad they were.
