Sunderland game it was Gil that allowed left back all the space and cant blame Richards for own goal. happens everyweek to defenders putting body on the line. same with Hutton vs Watford he had to make that clearance and had a tight angle to put it wide

Someone posted elsewhere (I haven't bothered to check) that Grealish and Gil had switched sides at the point that goal was scored.

Re: OGs, Richards was given to Van Aanholt so not counted, Hutton's was marked as OG by goals committee so will go down as an error.

I'll look back again for the midfielders responsible for the Hutton LB raids forward  (eg. Creswell goal and others)

Fails to show the errors out the field that lead to these errors.


eg Gestedes terrible pass for Sunderlands second!

Yep, also the Gueye turnover for arsenals second.

I'm open to any contributions from others..

Would probably be easier to count players that have not made any mistakes. 

I'll start with Ayew.



He signed for us.

Is this only "recent" errors? Amavi had quite a few at the start of the season.

Yeh I'll get to the earlier games, it takes time to go back through the highlights. Contributions welcome
