The photos of Xhaka & Zinchenko above were both taken after the full-time whistle yesterday following the goalless draw to Newcastle at The Emirates Stadium.

It might have felt like two points dropped but these players certainly left everything out on that pitch and that could end up being a vital point gained come the end of the season. I think the players realised that at full-time.
You can’t win them all and like Mikel Arteta said in his press conference after the game: “When you cannot win you do not lose.” and that’s exactly what his side done last night.
Arsenal dropped two points yesterday but that’s all it is at the moment. The Gunners still sit top of the Premier League table & currently lead Manchester City by eight points. The message is clear, win the next one & the next one is the big one… The North London Derby.
Manchester City face Chelsea, Spurs & Manchester United in three of their next four Premier League fixtures. However it’s not any easy for Arsenal though as like City, the Gunners also face Spurs & Manchester United this month.
The next few games will really tell us if Arsenal can go all the way and compete with Manchester City this season.
