Have to feel slightly sorry for Partey and the way he was used. Only returned around midday after playing a number of games in quick succession the African Cup of Nations and then flying back and being chucked into a matchday squad. Looked well off it from the moment he came on. Surely this would have been a chance for Arteta to try some of the younger players if he was that thin on the ground for player. They would definitely had more energy coming off the bench and been up for the fight

Well, we know they'd rather beg for a game to be cancelled than play a few kids.

Why was the Notts Forest keeper allowed to stay on after a clash of heads left him with a lump the size of an egg over his eye? We keep hearing how football is learning about concussions and dementia, but all the evidence seems to say otherwise
