Re: BREAKING LEGS & HANDBALLING BEFORE SCORING - HEEL WIGAN
Has Carrick really been that good this season? I remember him doing quite well early on, but it feels like he's been out of form for a while now. He was shocking against Chelsea too.
And for centrebacks, I think Mertesacker deserves a bit of credit too. I know I'll probably get roundly mocked given the general consensus among most Premier League fans is that he's rubbish. But if you ask any Arsenal fan that knows what they're talking about and they'll tell you that without Mertesacker we'd be an absolute mess. I shutter to think how many more set-pieces we'd have conceded from if not for him. He's probably been our most important player this season, even if not our out and out best performer (who is obviously Cazorla).
