A look at City's scoring chances from last weekends game against Arsenal.

A quick look back to the Arsenal game last Sunday to recap the scoring chances (click to enlarge the image):

  • With Samir Nasri and Carlos Tevez (through injury and suspension) not starting, this meant City were shorn of their top two scoring chance leaders for the game.
  • On his return to the side Sergio Aguero stepped up, with a +5 rating and posting a 11.11 chances per 100 touches rating - ahead of any other player this season. Interestingly, with Aguero back in the side and leading the line this meant that Edin Dzeko's role slightly changed. As a result, he posted only a +2 with a lower than average chances per 100 touches total.
  • Despite scoring, Joleon Lescott's shaky start to the season continued as he posted a -2 rating with three errors leading to Arsenal chances. Joe Hart was also forced to make three defences of chances. Worrying times for the defence.

And here are the season totals as they stand at week 5 (click to enlarge the image):
