Arsenal knock out Oxford United to join Manchester City in Cup 4 round

These two never let each other go. In the fight for the title in the Premier League, Arsenal and Manchester City will also face each other in the Cup, during the last weekend of January. Brilliant Chelsea winners (4-0), Sunday, the Citizens impressed much more than the Gunners on the lawn of Oxford United, this Monday evening. The score, 3-0, in no way reflects the setbacks of Mikel Arteta’s men against the 15th in League One, the English Third Division.

Four shots on target, three goals

A statistic proves it: 0.00. After 35 minutes, Arsenal had still not created an Expected Goal (the probability that a shot would be converted into a goal). Without an offensive idea, the second Premier League attack (behind Manchester City) relied on a set piece to forget the fear of a return match, as required by the rules of the competition in the event of a draw.

The savior is called Mohamed Elneny, head scorer (1-0, 63rd) on a perfect cross from Fabio Vieira. The lock broken, the Gunners then unrolled: at the conclusion of a nice collective movement, Fabio Vieira found Eddie Nketiah (2-0, 70th). The English striker even scored twice, on a service from Gabriel Martinelli (3-0, 76th). Four shots on target, three goals: a great lesson in realism above all. But it will take more at the Etihad Stadium, against Manchester City.
