The left-back was in great form yet again for Arsenal.
Arsenal bagged an impressive three points yesterday, defeating Claudio Ranieri’s Leicester City team 5-2.
There were some obvious excellent performances from the Arsenal team.
Alexis Sanchez bagged himself a hat-trick and Theo Walcott was also on top of his game.
He made two assists in the game to help Arsenal to their five-goal haul but going back he was also top class.
Riyad Mahrez has been one of the form players in the Premier League this season and Monreal was tasked with keeping him at bay. It was a handful, but he did an excellent job against the Algerian trickster.
Monreal has clearly won the battle with Kieran Gibbs for starting left-back and based on performances such as this one it is easy to understand why.
Here is how Arsenal fans reacted to the display of Monreal on Twitter…
And look at what a run in the team can do for a player. Nacho Monreal is our best left back since Ashley Cole. Incredibly consistent— Mean Lean (@arsenalvision) September 27, 2015
Nacho Monreal is one of the most underrated players in the league, kept Mahrez in his back pocket and got two assists as well, so reliable.— Arsenal News (@__arsenalnews_) September 27, 2015
Monreal has been call back from the Arsenal bus and asked to return Mahrez. Almost left with him in his pocket.— ArseStat (@Arsestat_) September 26, 2015
