Arsenal defender Per Mertesacker showed Arsene Wenger that the club doesn’t need another holding midfielder because he can easily fill the role given his perfect dummy followed by a silky turn to confuse his opponents.
If a 2-0 home defeat wasn’t bad enough for Manchester City to take in, the fact that the towering German centre-back outclassed their star studded squad will surely get them boiling.
Watch below as Mertesacker occupies the role in the middle of the park and completely fools his opponents on two seperate occasions, all in the space of only a few seconds!
Wenger needs an anchorman? We think not!
Mertesacker turned into Messi for like 2 seconds.
