Mathieu Debuchy had header come of the cross-bar just before half time and then ion the second half he somehow managed to head a Theo Walcott shot off the line, and those were just two pieces of excellence from the French right back yesterday, who has easily won our Man of the Match poll with a hefty 73% of the vote.
Mathieu Debuchy – Man of the Match – again
Mathieu joined us from Lille last January for around £5.5M, and like the other Frenchman who came he struggled a bit last season as he got used to the physical rigors of the Premier League.
But Mathieu seems to have already become a better player and has ousted Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna for the French right back spot.
It’s not the first time that Mathieu has been our best player in games this season, and he’s turning out to be another stellar buy for the club.
Following Mathieu in the voting are Cheick Tiote (10%), Yohan Cabaye (4%), Ben Arfa (3%) and the ever dependable Mike Williamson (3%).
There’s still time to vote if you haven’t done so already.
