Manchester City and Arsenal have kicked off at the Etihad Stadium, and the sides -- both unbeaten in the league so far -- could each do with a win here as they look to chase down Chelsea at the top of the Premier League table. Of course, we missed kickoff because of some kind of Fox Soccer Channel meltdown, but they only took two minutes! Alright! Let's assume that they were the best two minutes of football ever played. I'm sorry y'all missed them.
Don't worry, though, because we didn't miss those minutes in vain! Instead, we got to hear Brian McBride tell us that going travelling to Manchester City (the defending Premier League champions, for those who've managed to forget last yet), is Arsenal's toughest task yet. Priceless analysis, that.
Speaking of priceless analysis, the game -- at least the bits we've been able to see -- is pretty quiet so far. City look like they want to keep play wide and feed Edin Dzeko crosses, but the visitors are doing a decent job holding onto the ball thus far. No chances to speak of.
