thriller of a north london derby! arsenal looked to dominate most of the match, especially the second half. but credit to spurs for knowing how to capitalize on early defensive mistakes and take a point out of the emirates.

Xhaka is the most polarizing player since I don't know who. Makes sublime passes, has a VG shot, yet makes colossal blunders regularly. I'm ready for him to be replaced. Ugh.

Pepe, OTOH... Great match for Guendouzi too. He's really stepping up this season. And he's only 20.

Need to make Champions League and then land an elite CB.

I have been able to watch a few games of the European Champions and they look kind of good. They do not have that single goal scoring striker, like Messi or Renaldo, and their goalie is pretty good, but I've seen better. None the less, they are a fun team watch. Just my .02.

I'm still not sure how he was still on the pitch when the final whistle blew. He should have received a yellow for the studs up tackle on Son that resulted in the penalty. Several other tackles were yellow-worthy. I was surprised when Martin Atkinson finally gave him one in the waning minutes of the match.

Dives: refs are doing a much better job calling these over the past few seasons, but there're still a ton of bad calls/no-calls. Am assuming VAR will improve the accuracy of the PK calls, but I have no idea if they review dive calls (they should).

couldn't agree more.

emery's player selection and substitutions were also strange. why start three defensive midfielders? why didn't ceballos start? why put on useless mhki when he was about to complete a move to roma a day later?

Holy crud, City lost! To Norwhich! Watched a damn football game instead. Terrible call.

Everton lose 3:1 today at Bournemouth. Everton's defensive effort in this one was absolutely dreadful, particularly in the 2nd half. Lone goal for the Toffees was scored by Dominic Calvert-Lewin late in the first half. Everton away form continues to be lacking and they still have never won a Premier League match at Vitality Stadium.

Everton return to action Saturday at home vs. Sheffield United.
