Giroud v. Adebayor

Giroud v. Adebayor

Koscielny or Rosicky for Man of the Match?

Koz:
Completed 96% of his passes, made 15 clearances, was 3/3 in tackles (including a last man tackle), had 2 interceptions, blocked 2 shots (including the game saving block), completed 1 dribble, created a shot for a teammate and won 3/6 aerial duels.

Rosicky:
Completed 90% of his passes (Arsenal only averaged 75% today), led Arsenal with 10/11 passes in the Tottenham final third (nearly 25% of Arsenal’s total passes there), created 2 shots for teammates, had 3 interceptions, had a block, was dispossessed twice but had 0 turnovers, and scored the winning goal.

Mertesacker maybe?
Led all players with 20 clearances, 17 of them were headed, lead all players and won 7/8 aerial duels — mostly against Haterbayor, and led all players with 3 blocks.

*Cazorla had a very good defensive game today, tackling and picking up loose balls
