Arsenal 2 Manchester City 4

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.

  1. I must admit, I was happy that Arsenal lost – especially since Manchester United won! Having said that, I wasn’t too happy with Adebayor’s challenge on Van Persie, or the celebration – football fans don’t need too much to go crazy, and that only added fuel to the fire. Once Arshavin is back on the field, things should improve. Oh, and it was good to see Rosicky back in action!

  2. Well, I guess that’s where we differ, as I am an avid Man Utd supporter. I just read that Adebayor has been banned for the next three games – which is appropriate. Coincidentally, it means that he doesn’t play against Man Utd in the derby on Sunday. That’s going to help us!
