Craig Levein will not have had his team selection for Saturday's home Championship game against Cardiff made any easier after watching last night's reserves encounter.
James Wesolowski put himself firmly into contention as City's outstanding performer.
The Australian youth international, though no giant, is the sort you'd have loved by your side at Gallipoli, the archetypal bull terrier.
He totally bossed midfield for most of the game and rarely gave the ball away once he'd won it. With Gudjonsson returning from suspension and Hughes now close to full fitness, the queue for places will stretch to five, or even six if you include Hume.
Two further headaches emerged for Levein. Lee Morris was one. Back from long term injury the plan was always to give him one half last night.
But he looked fit, strong and far more dangerous on the wing than Sylla or Hamill and scored a goal for emphasis.
Then there was centre-forward Chris O'Grady. Mark DeVries remains City's top scorer. O'Grady has not been prolific but looks as if he should be.
He's mobile, has stamina to spare, contests everything and looks a natural ball striker. On last night's showing surely a contender.
Of other first team squad members left-back Sheehan appeared to get injured towards the end but gave a frustrating performance. In the first 65 minutes he created enough good chances from corners and open play for City to have won the match.
Later though, he was much less involved in attack, his passing became shabby and he was at fault for Arsenal's third goal.
Dublin too would have been disappointed that three Arsenal goals were central area strikes and they missed another sitter in the first 30 seconds having beaten Leicester's square back line by going straight through its centre.
