Lee Dixon issues stern Arsenal warning after Man City victory
Lee Dixon has a message for Arsenal after Monday night's 2-1 victory over Manchester City
Lee Dixon has warned Arsenal that they must learn to finish games with care in the title race after Monday night’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City.
England international Theo Walcott made the breakthrough in the 33rd minute after the Arsenal striker curled a powerful finish past City number one Joe Hart at the Emirates Stadium.
Olivier Giroud continued his impressive goal-scoring form on the stroke of half-time as the Arsenal striker doubled the north London side’s lead to leave Arsene Wenger’s men in command of the top-of-the-table clash.
Joel Campbell and Aaron Ramsey wasted opportunities to extend the home side’s lead in the second half before City midfielder Yaya Toure netted an 81st-minute consolation goal to ensure a nerve-ridden finish for the hosts.
Former Arsenal defender Dixon, who won four top-flight titles and three FA Cups during a distinguished Gunners career, issued a warning to the north London club after their morale-boosting victory.
Great result tonight for The Arsenal. Got a bit twitchy near the end. Git to see out games with more care. Big win though
