The Czech has struggled with injury once again this season leading some to suggest he might be on his way this summer. Based on this performance he won't be going anywhere.
Arsenal have gone ahead of Chelsea, for now at least, after beating West Brom 2-1 at The Hawthorns. Despite Per Mertesacker getting sent off and a late rally from The Baggies Arsenal were indebted to an unlikely man-of-the-match … Tomas Rosicky.
The Czech Republic international grabbed both goals and put in an excellent performance that looked far more like the midfield maestro of old then the injury ravaged player he has become.
It was a timely reminder of his talents as recent reports seem to hint at a summer exit for the 32-year-old as Wenger appears to have become fed up with his horrific injury record. However the Frenchman maintained after the game that he wanted the veteran to finish his career at The Emirates.
A return to Borussia Dortmund has been mooted along with a potential move to Everton after just 11 appearances this season. But after his first goals of his Premier League season he may have given Wenger food for thought in regards to his future.
His performance certainly impressed the Arsenal faithful who were quick to compliment the player after the game on Twitter…
