He’s done it again!
Who needs Alexis Sanchez or Pierre Emerick Aubameyang when you have Nacho Monreal?
Arsenal’s Spanish defender scored for the third time in 2018, netting the opener in the Gunners convincing 3-0 victory over Ostersund on Thursday evening.
Monreal, who is valued at £11.7million by Transfermarkt, has enjoyed a rich vein of goal scoring form which began on the 20th January against Crystal Palace.
Another goal against Swansea followed soon after before tonight’s strike in the Europa League took the 31-year-old to five goals for the season, and three in the last month alone.
Monreal has been one of Arsenal’s most consistent performers this season and has often been the only defender worthy of any praise…and his attacking talents aren’t bad either.
Upon seeing Monreal strike again, Arsenal fans took to Twitter in hilarious fashion, claiming that perhaps the former Malaga star should be starting a little further up the field…
Alexis Sanchez really was holding Nacho Monreal back

Monreal’s scored more goals than Kane, Salah & Aguero in this season’s Europa League. Mad.

Monreal is only 88 behind Lionel Messi's record of 91 goals in a calendar year. He'll smash it.
