Arsenal put in a faultless performance as they hammered Ludogorets 6-0 with Mezut Ozil scoring his first ever hat-trick. The win put Arsenal top of group A of the UEFA Champions League with 7 points.
Pivotal to the win was the exceptional performance of midfielder Francis Coquelin. On a night where Arsenal’s more attacking players took centre-stage scoring goals at will, it was the Frenchman who orchestrated all of Arsenal’s build up play winning the ball and then spraying passes to start off attacks. The Frenchman made a total of 8 successful tackles, 6 interceptions along with a pass accuracy of 93%.
With Granit Xhaka injured, this may be just the time for the youngster to cement his place in the Arsenal team.
