Pundit Watch: Arsenal get their first clean sheet against Man United because Liverpool and Newcastle don’t count
Pundit Watch: the BBC’s Garth Crooks has news for Arsenal fans.
I saw Gabriel stand up to Chelsea’s Diego Costa recently at Stamford Bridge and he refused to be intimidated by the striker. Sadly for Arsenal, he paid a heavy price for his boldness and was sent off.
That red card was rescinded, Garth.
His performance, while less demanding against Manchester United, was extremely professional and he looked like a very composed defender with the ball at his feet. He reduced Anthony Martial to the minimum of chances and was instrumental in Arsenal’s first clean sheet of the season.
Arsenal fans will wonder if clean sheets against Stoke, Newcastle and Liverpool count?
