Arsenal’s forgotten man Tomas Rosicky was imperious last night. His game seemed to pass almost unnoticed by the commentators as he glided around the pitch making interceptions, creating chances and accelerating our attacks using his vision.
Without Rosicky we lack something different, his ability to control a ball at pace and ping it off one-touch to one of our players.
Last night he was awesome, his assist to Wilshire a testament to his skill and control. He displayed the best part of his game last night, his excellent workrate, determination, creativity and quality. No wonder we’ve missed him so much. I’d take him instead of Denilson and Diaby every game. He tackled back, he fought and created opportunities across the pitch.
Rosicky will win us games this season, I hear clammering for him to shoot, but I believe his best work is done outside the 18yrd box and I expect much from him this year.
