The Hammers real Arsenal hero

The Hammers real Arsenal hero? Angelo Ogbonna was immense. 

With so many exceptional performances for West Ham against Arsenal, it’s hard to pick a man of the match. However, a special mention must go to Angelo Ogbonna, who performed heroically throughout the 2-0 Premier League win.

I must be honest here and admit that I didn’t think he had it in him. In fact, I was petrified when I saw the starting line-up. Both Kurt Zouma and Nayef Aguerd were unavailable for various reasons. So David Moyes had to pick the unfancied defensive duo of Konstantinos Mavropanos, and both were excellent.

Of course, ‘Dinos’ stole the show with a goal against his former club, but Ogbonna was truly outstanding. He was every inch the battle-hardened pro who refused to allow the relentless Arsenal attack to breach the Hammers’ resilient defense.

So well done, Angelo, for the Phoenix-like resurrection… what a night… what a victory.
