Arsenal Players Blame This Particular Teammate For Defeat Vs Man City

Arsenal faced the arduous task of overpowering an in-form Manchester City side in their opening fixture of the 2018/19 Premier League campaign at the Emirates stadium. It was a hard-fought affair but the defending champions came out as winners in their first encounter of the season.

Raheem Sterling and Bernardo Silva scored the goals for the Cityzens as they defeated the Gunners, who were unable to retaliate. While the Premier League champions looked playing in complete synchronization, the North London club, who had a few newcomers in their team, struggled to put their effort together. 

None of the Arsenal players looked in outstanding form but one player who faced the blame for letting in the first goal for his team was the new boy Matteo Guendouzi. The 19-year-old Frenchman, who was a surprise inclusion during the summer transfer window by Unai Emery, was handed a start in Arsenal’s first match this season. It was not a bad night for the player but he was blamed by his teammates Hector Bellerin and Shkodran Mustafi for letting in Sterling to score the first goal of the night.

The incident saw the English international taking on the Arsenal defence from the right flank and cutting inside. However, as per the Metro, the Spanish right-back Bellerin was the one to be blamed in the first place to let Sterling cut in from the flank. As he started to cut in, he faced the young Frenchman, who could not do enough to stop him from scoring the goal.
