Garth Crooks thinks Manchester City goalkeeper Ederson was “so bored” during the club’s 1 – 0 win over Arsenal as Mikel Arteta’s team failed to lay a glove on them.

Citizens celebrated another victory and are now leading the race with 59 points, while Gunners are in 10th place in the Premier League table, following the weekend’s clash.

“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a game quite like it,” said Crooks.

“A match played practically at walking pace at times and where the champions-elect were just allowed to coast by Arsenal.

“There was even a moment when Ederson appeared so bored he totally unnecessarily volleyed a back pass off his goal-line straight back to the opposition for the fun of it.

“This surely can’t go on. There was no attempt by Arsenal to mix it and play a game that would make nice ball-players feel uncomfortable, put them under pressure or even harass them. At this rate, Ruben Dias will play the game until he’s 47.”
