Maybe we did sign Cavani after all, agent Cavani playing in our back 5.

Got pushed but looks like he trips Verrati tbh. Hard to tell for sure from a single angle, but it's soft nonetheless.
I think the ref was trying to compensate for having to send off the PSG player tbh.

Either way, Cavani had an absolute shocker and is the sole reason you didn't get battered.
One point more than you deserved.

It's more before the incident where he purposefully pushes his body into the player off the ball. He body checks him off the ball for no reason (that is blocked in this angle by the player in front but I easily saw it on the screen in live time at the bottom left of the screen). Is a second booking harsh? Perhaps. Bit build a rep like he has and unfortunately it comes back to bite you.

Cavani could - should - have scored four. A missed opportunity for Arsenal tonight.

And yet we have some jokers who thought we should have bought him for £50m+ lol. He is nothing but a glorified Giroud. Lukaku also goes missing for a long time and gets considered better than Giroud. I am just saying, there is just genuinely a lack of genuinely world class strikers that are not form players or big risks.

It might be worth blowing the entire transfer budget next season on a top striker. All in.

It clearly wasn't.

Ref saw it happen and didn't motion to do anything.

Why would verratti be booked?

Ref clearly had a mare cos they mistook Marquinhos for verratti.

If anyone was a **** here it was Marquinhos.

Salty of what?
Already beat you at the Emirates pal, do you really fancy coming to Anfield?

We might not have as much of a European presence, but at least we get to finals instead of going out as soon as we go in to knockouts...

Good result, Looks like the performance wasnt great from what I hear, but at least we may not suck as much in our group as previous years!

Sanchez getting a goal is nice, need to keep his form up if we have any hope.

Wonder why Xhaka isnt starting? Looked good when he played before?

Is a draw at PSG a good result, though? They're stumbling through Ligue I, and despite their priority clearly being the CL and Emery being brought in to bring European success, last night was a real missed opportunity for Arsenal imho. It's not a bad result, of course, but it IS a missed opportunity.

PSG will struggle this year imo. By struggle, I mean win Ligue 1 by 10 instead of 20 points. Maybe they'll impress in Europe, but Cavani is an atrocious striker and one of the all-time bottlers.

Having rewatched it I agree the ref gave the second yellow because of Giroud "tripping " Verratti thanks to Marquinhos pushed him into him. So for that it is a shocking call especially Verratti getting a 2nd yellow.
But I still think the needless body check deserved a 2nd yellow even if it wasn't given. Try pushing your weight around off the ball and refs will unfortunately think you've got into handbags off the ball.

Does anyone else think Ospina is a better shot stopper than Cech?

Cech's been a joke since joking. Used to think his flaw was the near post, aim for the near post and it goes in, but its everywhere, near post, far post, even straight at him ffs.

Alexis has to start on the left. Night and day when he switched there in the second half.

A draw away to PSG is always a good result.
