I know this rumour from the Daily Star is extremely unlikely but I simply couldn't resist such an alluring headline! We all know that Arsenal should be looking for a new defensive midfielder to give some competition for Francis Coquelin in midfield, so I can understand Wenger considering a move for Sven, who is definitely [.

Robin Van Persie continued his more than impressive goal-scoring form. Another stand-out defensive performance from the team (the one single minute apart).

This was my first Mark Hughes memory, and to my nine year old mind it was just about the best goal imaginable.  A bouncing ball, several feet off the ground, suddenly thrashed into the top corner from Hughes' wonderfully judged volley. For him it was probably just one of those moments, see the ball, kick the ball, but it registered in my mind and I always rated him after that.
