Why Arsenal defender is to be blamed for Man City defeat

Arsenal defender Gabriel Magalhaes has been singled out after defeat to Manchester City this week.

Pundit Gabriel Agbonlahor insists Takehiro Tomiyasu wasn’t the major culprit after his error led to City’s opener.

He said on talkSPORT: “A lot of mistakes from Arsenal. The first one, Tomiyasu, it happens. Jack Grealish is pressing him, he doesn’t see Kevin De Bruyne running through.

“But it’s Gabriel for me. Every time I watch him, he’s the one that you always think has got a mistake in him.

“Yesterday the penalty that wasn’t given because it was offside, he got away with one there. He wanted to fight and battle Haaland and gives away a penalty.

“And then the goal, the goal that Haaland scores. It’s just poor defending all round, giving the ball away when you shouldn’t be.

“I’m all for playing from the back at times but sometimes – and Man City did it yesterday – sometimes it’s not on, hit the big man up front and play off him.”
