One of the most frustrating things about Arsenal losing the North London derby tonight is the fact that it isn’t annoying, the fact that Stevie Wonder could’ve seen it coming a mile off.

You know things have changed when Arsenal go into Spurs games and the fans expect a defeat and that is perhaps the most damning indictment on Mikel Arteta.

The Spaniard has changed everthing and nothing.

If anything, Arsenal, who are 15th in the Premier League table, are worse now than we ever were while Unai Emery was knocking about.

There are very, very few positives from an Arsenal perspective tonight, but one has to be Gabriel Magalhaes’s performance.

The Brazilian continues to look like an absolute steal for the £27 million that we paid Lille for him last summer.

He is perhaps the only player who could’ve walked off that field with his head held high.

And here’s what some of the fanbase is saying about the 22-year-old Brazilian defender tonight:
