Mexican winger Carlos Vela has struggled a lot against Stoke City, as the Potters were able to romp the Gunners by 3:1 at the Britannia Stadium on Sunday afternoon. It was definately a dissapointing afternoon for the young 20 years old as he tried a lot, but nothing should work for the forward on this day. Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has decided to give the young Mexican a 90 minutes run out, so that he could continue on his physical learning process, as well as it was good for his development in English football.
We have provide you for the first time with a live coverage on our Twitter page, but we could not write really impressive actions of the Mexican, because there was nothing.
The positive things on Vela’s performance was definately that he wanted always the ball, he had a lot of ball contacts, but he failed to produce something, as he mishitted several crosses and passes. The match was very physical and you could see once again that Vela is still missing out on strenght and power, as well as he showed that he is lacking confidence at the moment.
Furthermore Vela had two good actions as he missed out with a left footer, but of course it was a very tough angle. The other chance came as he picked up the ball into the box but Stoke defender Higgingbotham was able to stretch his leg to tackle the ball fairly away from Vela.
Carlos wants to bounce back when the Gunners heading to Villa Park for a Barclays Premiership matchup with Martin O’ Neills Aston Villa side on Wednesday evening.
