A delayed celebration

Raheem Sterling opened the scoring with a brilliant effort, but many spectators were not sure at first if the ball had found the back of the net.

Pep Guardiola, in particular, took time to celebrate when the ball slipped behind a microphone behind the goal.

Those who see at home were also a little confused when Sterling left in a celebration, the strike acting as a kind of optical illusion.

All the way

Matteo Guendouzi received a baptism of fire since the young man was a surprise team in the starting lineup of Arsenal.

The last competitive game of 19 years was the clash of the French second division between Lorient and Valenciennes, played against 8,000.

On Sunday, the Frenchman started against the champions of the Premier League City against 60,000.

Great praise indeed

Before the game, Geraint Thomas, interviewed on launch by Sky, revealed that he received a phone call from Wenger a day after winning the Tour de France.

"The team put together some well-made messages and the lead was from Thierry Henry and it was just amazing," said the Gunner fan. "The fact that he took the time to say simply well done could not understand it."

"And then, on Monday morning, I was a bit hungover at the airport, and someone reached for my phone and it was Arsene Wenger, and at first I thought it was Brad Wiggins drinking the mickey, he's good at his impressions. Arsene Wenger was crazy and Aaron Ramsey was crazy. "

Emery out?

Unai Emery's revolution did not have the best start and some fans rushed to play down the situation.

The words & # 39; Wenger out & # 39; they became synonymous with the last stage of the stay of Arsene Wenger and his followers took to Twitter to joke by tweeting & # 39; Emery out & # 39; after the complete defeat of Sunday.

Fortunately for the Spanish, few fans rushed to deliver serious criticism after their first competitive match in charge.
