Just about recovering from double blow of AFC late equaliser and key miss of even later CFC winner that we deserved and would have handily consolidated our top four position. Hard to take, and posting this partly about sharing the pain/ need for therapy! .

Will admit that my language was ripe last night! A great game for neutrals perhaps, but am still replaying what might have been though was obviously an exciting game! . Apart from our misses, one of our massed defenders should surely have been watching/ closing down Bellerin to prevent clear shot - pity that Alonso's superb overall performance slightly spoiled by his weak/ tired defensive header that fell so kindly for Bellerin though.

Of course Morata should have scored at least one of his chances, but agree with others that his link up play, speed and positioning generally excellent and he must surely start scoring more with his feet!

Overall I felt that Bakayoko had another poor game and we are/ were missing another sufficiently dynamic mf to accompany NK.

Agree with everything you just said JBS. Last night felt more like a defeat than a draw, with the chances we missed and Arsenal's late equaliser.

But on your last point on Bakayoko, and I know I keep raving about Vidal. But if we could sign Vidal, he would be perfect in our midfield next to Kante. For one Vidal would add goals from midfield, I know people say he's too old blah blah blah. But he could be a great player for us for a couple of seasons. He would offer so much more to what we currently have.

You might well be right Bobby23, Vidal could be very good next to NK and one of better (in sense of being more possible as well as proven) signing prospects in this January window. Not too many really good/ experienced players will be available - and the squad clearly does need strengthening further as we and Antonio know only too well with all the competitions we're in. Just wondered whether you have seen much of him much lately and been impressed? I've not personally watched much of him at Bayern, but did when he was at Juventus and he was hugely impressive esp. 2012-14 period. Must be big chance that Conte would get best out of him.

Agree with the above - last night I came away miserable because we didn't win (when I think of all those times that I would have been elated to draw at Highbury! ) . I have to ask: why is Conte sticking with Bakayoko?! Bakayoko offers little or nothing to our game - it's like playing with 10 men; he's not great in the tackle; he's not that quick; his 1st touch is horrendous; he gets caught in possession alot; I can't remember him heading the ball; his composure in front of goal is non-existent. The only thing going for him is that he is only 21 and might improve! And we have sold de Bruyne, Mata, Matic, Ake, Oscar, Ramires, John Obi Mikel, John Swift, Romeu, and Thorgan Hazard while we have RLC, Lewis-Baker, Izzy Brown, Mario Pasalic, van Ginkel, on loan - I would suggest that all of those are as good as Bakayoko and most are better. Drinkwater has to start ahead of Bakayoko (and hopefully we sign Vidal) .

I think are weak link is fab. just terrible. no desire to defend. at least bakayoko gives it ago. he's still young and again his first stint in the prem again faster league hasn't got the same amount if time he had in the French league.

Wheely are you having a laugh a lut fabregas mate? Yesterday he solely passed the ball for at least 3 goals sadly neither Morata/ moses or bakayoko could take it. All 3 of them yesterday played really poor.
