Vela’s Extraordinary Chip Finishes Arsenal’s Damage On Fulham

Young talented Arsenal striker Carlos Vela came on late and stars with a sensational chipping goal, as he lifted the ball with his left foot over Fulham Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer to make it 4:0 for the Gunners.

Vela was introduced with just 13 minutes remaining on the clock, but he showed from the start a very confident performance. It started very well with good ball control and a few great runs, followed then by an outstanding back-heel kick for left back Gael Clichy and the result was the composed finish in front of Schwarzer to seal his only Premier League goal of this season. After his tally Vela jumped straight into the arms of Spanish midfielder Fran Merida to celebrate with him his goal. The Spaniard is Vela’s best friend at Arsenal and he helped the Mexican to stick with his game.

Carlitos showed again his quality and ability in front of the net, as many peoples have blamed him after missing out on the opportunity in the third minute at Ewood Park.

I think no one should have still doubts on the quality and ability of this young man Carlos Vela!!

Vela Misses Out On Arsenal Squad For Barcelona

21 years old Mexican Carlos Vela stays in London when his teammates taking the plane to Barcelona today for their crucial Champions League encounter with Pep Guardiola’s star side on Tuesday evening in the Catalan metropolis.

Arsenal Manager Arsene Wenger has left the Mexican out of his 18-man travelling squad, instead he has nominated unexperienced players like Fran Mérida or Craig Eastmond. There is no reason confirmed why Carlitos don’t make the squad, but if he did not pick up a knock in Saturday’s match, then it is a not understandable decision by Gunners Manager Arsene Wenger.

Furthermore Vela was fully involved in this morning’s practice unit at Arsenal Training Ground in London, Colney. (Pic: Vela and Mérida at London, Colney April 5)
