Oh well it had to happen some time, the results is done and dusted, the run has come to an end as it was always going to have to at some point.
Now for our response?

We beat Spurs and they responded with 3 wins and a draw at Barcelona
Chelsea lost their unbeaten run but responded by ending City's unbeaten run.
Top 4 won't be decided by one off bad days at the office but by who responds by picking themselves up afterwards and who has the mentality to simply go again.

You are right G62 it did have to come to an end. It is a pity it did in this manner. Out fought and losing 3 goals to a team who have struggled to score goals this season. Our inability to get ahead in games like this and our overall goals against record is a big concern. I think we have enjoyed our share of fortune so far this season and today it didn’t fall our way. I also think we are approaching a point where, despite Emery’s massive improvement in our competiveness and stamina, our lack of quality in key areas still remains. Defensively, not just today, we are not tight enough. Creatively I hope there is a plan in mind because without a Ramsay or Ozil we are without that creative link between midfield and our excellent strike force.
Frustrating day. But onwards we go and next couple of transfer windows are going to be very interesting.

True but I was never happy with the lack of CB options - it cost us today.

we were poor again at the back kos had a shocker you have to think mustafi or pap would have been tighter to ingsfo both goals the young french kid in midfield was poor and xhaka in defence was wasted we missed him in the middle.

Dreadful poor rubbish defending, the good thing is Emery knows where we are weak.

Yanman - that what happens when you run out of CBs, you play kids or people out of position which then weakens two areas on the pitch. Disappointing but to be fair, results have papered over some big cracks in defence. Lots of work to get done, didn’t think Emery did enough in the Summer plus silly not having CB cover but need to give him time. Hopefully he addresss soon as I don’t want 3 transition seasons.

We have been fortunate on many occasions throughout our unbeaten run but equally we've worked really hard to get results and give ourselves the best possible chance of getting something in every game.
We all know we need to improve the quality of our squad but with what we have it's 9.5/ 10 for us so far points wise this season, yes we could have more points but given the unbelievable consistency of all of the top 5 this season were doing brilliantly to just stay involved given its our new managers first half season and the squad mentality he inherited.

Today was down to suspensions injuries, bad goalkeeping and for once, unusually bad tactics. Another 22 game unbeaten run would be nice.
