Freddie Ljunberg’s men never really got going against the defending champions as they slumped to an insurmountable lead before the interval, but the ex-Arsenal defender was quick to praise two of his former side’s less experienced performers for their output.

Writing on his personal account, the Frenchman said: “Yesterday was another bad day for Arsenal…

“But I am pleased to see youngsters like Gabriel Martinelli and Bukayo Saka stepping in and showing personality.”

Is Sagna right to be impressed?

This was a day of very few positives for the .

They never really looked like troubling City, and ’s majestic display put pay to any outside hopes of an unlikely upset against the champions.

Nonetheless, if there is one silver lining to be taken from this horror show of a season, it’s that the future looks bright.

Martinelli looks fearless, and his total of two successful dribbles and a decent effort on goal, as per Whoscored, show glimpses of the precocious talent he possesses for somebody who is still only 18.

For his part, Saka showed a little less going forward, but the fact that he is coming into this kind of match and holding his own is mightily impressive.

Expect big things from these two in the future.
