Gylfi Sigurddson

Gylfi Sigurdsson continued his great form for Swansea City as he played a key role in the victory over Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are fierce North London rivals, and both lost in the Premier League on Sunday.

While the Gunners went down 2-1 to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium, Spurs suffers a 2-1 defeat to Stoke City at White Hart Lane.

One player who probably did not mind the two North London outfits fail to pick up points is Gylfi Sigurdsson.

The Iceland international has been in sensational form since joining Swansea from Tottenham in the summer transfer window, and he continued to impress on Sunday.

The 25-year-old attacking midfielder scored a sensational free kick against Arsenal to bring the Swans level and then played a role in the Welsh outfit’s second and winning goal.

Sigurdsson was on the books of Tottenham for two years, but during his time at White Hart Lane, he failed to make a huge impact.

Perhaps it was because of too much pressure, perhaps it was because of the frequent change in managers…. Whatever the reason might have been, there are no signs of the Icelandic star stopping to impress anytime soon for Swansea.
