According to Arsenal legend Martin Keown, playing against Arsenal was too easy for Manchester City striker Erling Haaland.

“If I was playing, Haaland would be all I was thinking about,” Keown told BT Sport.

“Holding lost that battle. The very first challenge, that’s where they concede the first goal.

“You’ve got to put your marker down, you’ve got to be physical, maybe take a booking. But Haaland is just strutting around that pitch and it looked really easy at times.

“That’s something these young Arsenal defenders are going to have to learn, and learn quickly.”
