Arsenal 3 AFC Wimbledon 0: Three Arsenal Players Who Did Amazing Work in That Match

Arsenal football club that is managed by Mikel Arteta has been performing dismally in recent years. When the English Premier League commenced Arsenal lost the first three matches something that disheartened fans worldwide.

But Mikel Arteta's men regrouped properly and have won their last two matches consecutively against Norwich away and Brighton at home.

Yesterday night the Gunners hosted AFC Wimbledon in EFL Cup at Emirates Stadium. It was a game that many people followed and anticipated a win. Arsenal players never disappointed as they went ahead and emerged winners by three goals to nil.

They had 19 shots directed towards the goal with 5 of them being on target. This implies that the strikers were up to the task. Arsenal enjoyed the ball possession throughout the match with more than 63%. They had a passing accuracy of 88 per cent with 563 passes. One good thing that was noticed is that no arsenal player received any card.

Here are three players who performed extraordinarily.

2. Alexander Lacazzete.

The sensational forward has not been featuring in Arteta's starting lineup in EPL since it started. The Frenchman had something to prove to the manager as he calmly netted the first goal from the spot after he got fouled in the box. Lacazzete was on fire in full 90 minutes.

2. Sambi Lokonga.

The newly signed youngster was a rock in midfield. He made numerous interceptions thereby dismantling Wimbledon's pacey strikers. He at some point produced moments of brilliance going forward with his dribbling skills. He is a player Arteta should think of using in many crucial matches.

3. Smith Rowe.

He appears to have been improving in every match. He was lethal in front giving Wimbledon defenders hard time in marking him. He scored the third goal after a thunderous shot.
