With the match unavailable anywhere (thanks, ESPN+), I’ll scour social media to post match highlights as fast as I can find them.
- 20′ Nketiah chips nicely from Nelson to make it 1-0.
- 27′ Welbeck scores from the spot after Hein slips, gets up, and trips Welbeck. Hein sees yellow.
- Mikel resisting the urge to sub himself on.
- 58′ Mitoma’s goal to make it 1-2.
- 71′ Lamptey makes it 1-3.
Sigh. It seems that Arteta either doesn’t rate the League Cup or figured a rotated side could still get the result. Oh well. Fewer matches to wear us down in pursuit of a trophy that is not all that impressive. On to the next match, then.
