it's really interesting how our style of play has changed with Flamini instead of Jack or Arteta. We have held the ball less these past few weeks, but haven't really looked like we were going to concede (except when we did, i guess
) besides swansea's goal which was an excellent run and pass, their only other really good chance was Jack's through ball to Bony which wasn't a great angle for him to score, thankfully. it's kind of interesting because we really have some great counterattacking weapons now (something that will only improve with the return of Theo and Santi) which could lead to some tactical variety based on opponent. of course, with Ozil, we also have an improved ability to break down stubborn defenses when we have the majority of possession. that 10 minute stretch in the second half of swansea was outstanding. this team is so much fun.
i also can't believe how confident Gnabry is out there. his shaky 1st half against Stoke got out of his system quickly. he looked so damn confident Saturday. really nice finish for the goal too.
