Arsenal’s good start to the season have hit two bumps on the road. Last weekend it was Manchester United and this Saturday it was their cross city rivals who beat Arsenal. Emmanuel Adebayor silenced the taunts of Arsenal fans as he inspired Manchester City to a fourth successive Premier League victory – but sparked fury among his former supporters inside Eastlands with a provocative solo goal celebration.
Adebayor’s excessive celebrations did not go well with the crowd and he also got a booking for that. Adebayor also appeared to kick out at Robin van Persie during an eventful second-half. He caught former team-mate in the face with his boot which the Dutchman claims was intentional. The Togo internation says that it wasn’t and that he apologized. Van Persie and Thomas Rosicky scored the 2 goals for Arsenal.
