Some of the time, for every one of the nuances and pretty examples, just a tank will do. Gratefully for Arsene Wenger, he had one.
It’s the epithet given to Sead Kolasinac and now and again it can appear a touch out of line on a player who can move like the best of them.
Yet, he can likewise impact, this stocky wingback who figured out how to turn a day that was in threat of turning AGM revolting.
It had been turning out badly for Arsenal, having fallen behind to a Sam Clucas objective on 22 minutes and after that survived a tremendous terrify in first half damage time. Had Swansea scored at that point, who knows what may have happened?
It never takes much to irritate the people in this stadium, as showed by the fairly feisty AGM two or three days sooner.
Yet, 2-0 down at home to Swansea would truly have tried the purpose. Rather, it never went to that and Kolasinac could motivate a magnificent safeguard mission with both the equalizer and after that the help for Aaron Ramsey’s victor.
He has been amazing since his mid year landing from Schalke and this was most likely his best round of the part. With it, Arsenal had their tenth progressive win at this stadium on the event of Wenger’s 800th Premier League installation in control.
Not awful against a side that had won more than they had lost at this ground, yet who seem to have the look of strugglers this season. How they may live to lament that Jordan Ayew chance toward the finish of the principal half, having now lost three diversions in progression in all rivalries.
