Carlos Vela Arsenal

Carlos Vela found the net for Real Sociedad to bag his 10th goal of the season.

Mexican forward Carlos Vela scored a vital winner for Real Sociedad last night, the winner in a 1-0 away win at Malaga.

It was his 10th goal of the season, and keeps them just four points off the fourth placed Champions League qualifying spot, which they finished in last season.

Vela also has eight assists to his name this campaign, and is en route to bettering his 14 goal and nine assist return in La Liga last season.

He still has a buy-back clause in his contract which Arsenal could activate should they want to, as per terms of his original sale, and Sociedad remain keen to negotiate a new contract with him, which could see that option removed.
