Arsene Wenger proved that Jose Mourinho’s not the only one who can pull off a surprise with a radical change in tactics and personnel that helped Arsenal triumph over Middlesbrough by a 2-1 score line.
Wenger’s choices for the match were certainly inspired – and it seems that we’ve discovered his source.
Arsenal Fan TV caught up with Gunners super-fan Kelechi Anyikude who had some pretty direct words of wisdom for his side – and his cry to change the system now seems prophetic in hindsight.
His words were charged, while his posture and those burning eyes would certainly have helped get the message across.
Not a bad candidate to replace Wenger really, certainly would make the post-match interviews must-see television!
