‘Really happy for him’, these Arsenal fans are delighted with midfielder’s performance vs Bournemouth

Some Arsenal supporters have expressed their delight over the performance of Matteo Guendouzi during the club’s 2-1 win over Bournemouth in the FA Cup fourth round.

The Frenchman has been the third-choice central midfielder under manager Mikel Arteta and he has recently settled for a role off the bench with Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira being the regular picks for the Premier League.

He was, however, handed with a starting opportunity against the Cherries on Monday night and he came up with a dominating midfield performance with a 91 percent success rate with his passing, as per whoscored.

Aside from this, he managed five take-ons, four tackles, two clearances and won three aerial duels and he was likewise impressive with the long-range distribution with seven of his nine attempted long balls finding his teammates.

This has definitely caught the eye of several Gunners fans and some of them have taken to Twitter to show their appreciation for the Frenchman, who undoubtedly came up with his best display under the guidance of Arteta.

Twitter Reactions:

At different stages of the Cup tie, Granit Xhaka occupied a central defensive role and Guendouzi was left on his own to handle the midfield threat from the opposition.

He still managed to handle the situation with relative ease and made a few tactical fouls as well as recovered possession on a number of occasions. The Frenchman may still have to settle for a bench role for the weekend’s league clash at Burnley with Lucas Torreira likely to replace him.
