Barrow Is Your Man of the Match vs Arsenal

Barrow Is Your Man of the Match vs Arsenal

Swansea City winger Modou Barrow was your clear man of the match winner in last Saturday's narrow 3-2 defeat at Arsenal.

Barrow was back in the side having not started in almost a month, since the 1-0 away defeat at Southampton as Bob Bradley took charge of his first game.

The 24 year-old caused Arsenal, who are now joint top of the Premier League, all sorts of problems, and was involved in pretty much everything in terms of Swansea's attacking play.

He forced Xhaka to commit a stupid cynical foul to get himself sent off in the second half, and he helped Borja Baston score his first goal for the Swans as we looked to get back from a 3-1 deficit.

Barrow's dashboard below shows his involvement on the right flank - surprisingly he only managed 1 successful take-on, but crucially one assist and two key passes. Sigurdsson really should have converted his low cross to make it 3-3.

It was refreshing to see Barrow back in the side and performing to his potential. Playing against open sides like Arsenal suits him - particularly away from home, but it'll at the Liberty where he could find it difficult, particularly against the likes of Watford and Stoke City.
