ON THIS DAY

John McGinn, back to his imperious best after the travails under the former manager, makes his 170th appearance for the club since joining in August 2018 for a bargain fee of ยฃ2.79m.

Meanwhile Tyrone Mings makes his 150th start and Ezri Konsa his 125th appearance for the club, another pair of high quality players who had suffered much under the former regime but are now back at the top of their games under Unai Emery.
