Anfield Night

Bolton loanee and Arsenal winger Wellington Silva visited Liverpool last night.

Arsenal winger Wellington Silva was at Anfield last night to watch Liverpool reach the Europa League final.

The Brazilian posed with friend and countryman Philippe Coutinho after the game, congratulating him on his achievement.

Silva, 23, is on a season long loan at Championship strugglers Bolton Wanderers, and has been a bright spark for the Lancashire side despite their poor form.

He is yet to make his debut for Arsenal since being signed several seasons ago, sent out on a series of loans instead.

Last year he finally qualified for an EU passport and this is his first season playing in England, loaned to Bolton, and he may have a chance of fighting for a place at Arsenal next season, following Joel Campbell and Alex Iwobi into the first team.

Arsenal have invested a lot of time and effort into him, and they should give him a chance to show what he can do, having got to this stage.

Hopefully for the Gunners, watching his pal Coutinho take Liverpool to a European final will give him added inspiration and motivation to be a Premier League success.
