Arsenal fans call for Wenger to sign the player who broke their hearts

Well, that wasn’t the first-half the world of football had expected, was it?!

An abject, lazy and passionless performance from Arsene Wenger’s side so far, means they trail tonight’s underdogs 1-0 thanks to a speculative effort from Geoffrey Kondogbia.

At first, it appeared that the former Sevilla midfielder had scored an absolute beauty, as David Ospina helplessly looked on, however, replays showed that the ball took a wicked deflection off of Arsenal’s Per Mertesacker – probably would be harsh to suggest Ospina could do better.

Despite the helping hand from the big German, nothing can be taken away from Kondogbia’s first half performance; he has bossed and bullied Arsenal in the middle of the park and not given Santi Cazorla a moments rest.

The performance resembles a certain Patrick Vieira, a player Le Professeur has tried time and time again to replace but without much luck.

Maybe Arsenal have the answer to their Vieira-shaped hole right in front of them? The Gooners certainly think so
