Gunners pull the short straw

Arsenal and their supporters will be well and truly sick of the sight of Manchester City sooner rather than later after Mikel Arteta’s men got the short straw of having to face off against Pep Guardiola’s side three times in a fairly rapid space of time.

One of the forthcoming fixtures was originally slated to have taken place months ago but was postponed – along with all other football – at the time of the passing of Queen Elizabeth II and now the re-fixture, return fixture and Cup tie are proverbially coming along like buses.

Elsewhere, Erik ten Hag’s resurgent Manchester United again bagged a slice of luck when being assigned an FA Cup 4th Round appointment with Reading for whom Republic Of Ireland striker Shane Long netted at the weekend.
