Arsenal Midfielder Full Of Praise For Current Squad, But How Is He Performing Individually?

When Arsenal celebrated their FA Cup victory back in 2005 few people would have said that it would be their last piece of silverware in at least nine years.  The Gunners have had to endure a long, tough time over the last decade or so, but things are starting to look up again.

They have topped the Premier League table for the majority of the season this time round, and although they are now in second place after Chelsea leapfrogged them recently, there is still believe around north London.

One man who is still in full belief that they can win something is French midfielder Mathieu Flamini – who is enjoying his second spell at the club. Not only has he praised the commitment, the work-rate and the mentality of the players, but he also putting in some solid displays of his own.

He has played 18 league games for the Gunners since his return in the summer and another six in cup competitions. In the topflight he has a 92% pass success and averages five defensive actions per game, but it’s the way he stations himself in the middle of the pitch, collecting the scraps and breaking up play, that lets the more offensive players roam up the pitch and do their thing.

Flamini has had a massive season so far and I think a trophy would crown what has been a huge success.
