Matteo Guendouzi was called into France’s senior squad for the first time in September (Picture: Getty)In fact, quite the opposite has been true. Guendouzi started Emery’s very first game against Manchester City and has amassed 54 appearances already for Arsenal, featuring in 81% of the team’s 66 games under the Spaniard. Only Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang with 58 matches has played more times than the young midfielder.This season, his importance to the side has increased further, evidenced by his six Premier League starts and Emery’s decision to rest him during the Europa League opener against Eintracht Frankfurt last week and the Carabao Cup clash with Nottingham Forest on Tuesday.It is becoming increasingly clear that Guendouzi is Arsenal’s prized asset amongst a well-stocked stable of central midfielders.Increased influenceIt has been a chaotic start to the season for Arsenal. After six games they have won three, drawn two and lost one of their matches, scoring 11 goals and conceding 10 along the way.On average, Arsenal have faced over 18 shots per game in the Premier League while attempting just over 14 themselves. Watching Arsenal at the moment is a rather disorientating experience, their matches resembling end-to-end encounters more usually found on a basketball court than a football pitch.Amid that frenetic chaos, though, Guendouzi has flourished. In each of Arsenal’s previous three league matches against Spurs, Watford and Aston Villa, the second halves have offered ridiculous, edge of the seat entertainment and in two of them Guendouzi has been the chief protagonist of the mayhem. Guendouzi will come up directly against his French compatriot Paul Pogba at Old Trafford (Picture: Getty)For Guendouzi, trying to reach Pogba’s level should be the ultimate goal. Like Pogba he passes, tackles, covers ground and is useful in transition phases but he is yet to hone his attacking game just yet, despite visible improvements in that regard this season.AdvertisementWith Pogba returning to fitness, Deschamps may well take a keen interest in Manchester United’s clash against Arsenal at Old Trafford when the seasoned veteran takes on the young pretender in what promises to be an absorbing battle in midfield.That Guendouzi is fast-becoming Arsenal’s go-to midfielder in the big games at the age of 20 shows not only how far he has come already, but how much further he can still go.More: Manchester United FCRio Ferdinand urges Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to drop Manchester United starNew Manchester United signing Facundo Pellistri responds to Edinson Cavani praiseEx-Man Utd coach blasts Ed Woodward for two key transfer errors Advertisement Oliver Young-MylesMonday 30 Sep 2019 7:01 amShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link3.4kShares The French youngster has been a driving force in Arsenal’s midfield this season (Picture: Getty)‘In my mind, I was like, at first I couldn’t believe it. Ten minutes before I was asleep – I thought it was still a dream!’Of the exhaustive number of cliches uttered by professional footballers after receiving their maiden international call-ups, ‘I thought it was a dream’ probably ranks just below the age-old English classic ‘I thought it was a wind-up’ at the top end of the list.The above was Arsenal midfielder Matteo Guendouzi’s response to finding out that Didier Deschamps had selected him to join World Cup winners Raphael Varane, Blaise Matuidi and Antoine Griezmann et al in Les Bleus squad for this month’s Euro 2020 qualifiers.AdvertisementAdvertisementGuendouzi might have committed the cardinal sin of resorting to cliche to describe what was a life-changing moment, but in his defence, it is easy to see why the news might have felt more like something plucked from his subconscious thoughts than an event that had actually happened.ADVERTISEMENTRapid riseIt has, after all, been a whirlwind 12-18 months for Arsenal’s floppy-haired No.29. As the French squad – drenched by pouring rain and interminable golden confetti – cavorted around the World Cup trophy in Moscow on July 15 last year, Guendouzi was preparing himself for life in a new country having joined Arsenal only four days before from FC Lorient.The then 19-year-old was the fifth and final signing of Unai Emery’s first transfer window and given his professional experience up until that point had been restricted to one full season in Ligue 2 and a smattering of appearances in the CFA – France’s fourth-tier – he was expected to be the least involved of the new quintet. Guendouzi drove Arsenal on during their second-half comeback against Aston Villa (Picture: Getty)The Frenchman was superb in Arsenal’s comeback against Spurs, driving his team on and providing the assist for Aubameyang’s equaliser in the second half. Against Villa, Guendouzi again took the game by the scruff of the neck, winning a penalty before setting up Calum Chambers to score, leading Alan Shearer to describe him afterwards as Arsenal’s ‘warrior’.AdvertisementAdvertisementEven besides those Herculean second-half efforts, Guendouzi has been involved in the thick of everything in Arsenal’s midfield. The statistics back that up; he ranks top for successful passes, joint-top for interceptions, joint-second for tackles won and joint-third for key passes amongst their squad. Guendouzi basically does everything other than shoot.With Dani Ceballos adapting to the pace of the English game and Granit Xhaka struggling to keep up with it, Guendouzi has taken it upon himself to be Arsenal’s deep-lying playmaker, midfield enforcer and box-to-box runner, all rolled into one. It is why his all-action recent displays have drawn comparisons to Cesc Fabregas’ time at the Emirates.Battle of Les BleusAs impressive as Guendouzi’s start to the campaign has been, he would not have been included in France’s latest squad had it not been for Paul Pogba’s withdrawal due to an ankle injury. That Deschamps chose Guendouzi to replace the Manchester United man, however, is telling.Pogba, despite what Graeme Souness and the rest of his critics might claim, is one of the most well-rounded central midfielders in the world, capable of contributing towards all aspects of play from the centre of the pitch due to his technical and physical qualities.During his time at Juventus, Pogba brought energy to an ageing midfield containing Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal. For France, he has taken on the role of tempo-setter to complement the tenacity of N’Golo Kante. At United, he does a bit of both with some attacking flair chucked in for good measure.

For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. highlights London: Manchester City retained the League Cup by edging Chelsea 4-3 on penalties on Sunday after an incredible bust-up between Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri and goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga. The Italian tried to replace the world’s most expensive player towards the end of a cagey 120 minutes that ended 0-0. Kepa had received treatment for an injury in the final stages, but also has an inferior record of saving spot-kicks than Willy Caballero, who Sarri attempted to introduce. City goalkeeper Ederson denied Jorginho and David Luiz hit the post in the shootout before Raheem Sterling smashed the winning penalty past Kepa. Until that flashpoint, the afternoon had been a success for Sarri just two weeks on from Chelsea’s worst defeat since 1991 in a 6-0 thrashing at the hands of City in the Premier League. The chances of Sarri losing his job were only heightened by a FA Cup elimination at the hands of Manchester United on Monday. With his back to the wall, it was perhaps understandable then that Sarri adopted a far more cautious approach. Gonzalo Higuain was dropped to the bench to leave Eden Hazard to plough a lone furrow up front — as the Belgian did when Chelsea beat City 2-0 in December.Sarri is an open admirer of City boss Pep Guardiola’s work, but accepted his side’s limitations by gifting City possession and being far harder to break down than in recent weeks. Sergio Aguero scored a hat-trick in the Etihad mauling a fortnight ago, but the Argentine could only volley over with the best chance of a first half with precious few opportunities. City were dealt an injury blow as Vincent Kompany had to replace Aymeric Laporte at half-time, and Hazard routinely exposed his Belgian international teammate’s lack of pace after the break. Chelsea had an anxious wait just before the hour mark for VAR to confirm Aguero was offside after he found the net, but most of the second half action came at the other end.Sarri’s gameplan nearly worked perfectly 24 minutes from time when Hazard let Kompany trailing and crossed for N’Golo Kante, but the French World Cup winner couldn’t keep his shot under the bar.Ross Barkley then curled just off target as Chelsea grew in confidence before more Hazard magic opened up City again only for Pedro Rodriguez’s cross to be cut out when the Spaniard should have gone for goal. Only the finest of margins denied Hazard once more in stoppage time as he raced clear on goal only to see the offside flag go up to Sarri’s dismay. An extra 30 minutes also failed to muster a goal with City regaining a semblance of control. A combination of Cesar Azpilicueta and Kepa prevented Aguero turning home Sterling’s cross from point-blank range.Aguero had one final chance to win it three minutes from time, but Kepa made his best save of the game low to his left before refusing to make way for Caballero. A visibly furious Sarri even started making his way towards the tunnel before turning back to take his place on the touchline. Arrizabalaga did save Leroy Sane’s spot-kick, but should have done better when Aguero’s penalty slipped underneath his body. Ilkay Gundogan also found the net for City before Sterling sealed the start of a potential quadruple of trophies this season by drilling his penalty in off the underside of the bar. Maurizio Sarri and Kepa Arrizabalaga had an argument over replacing the keeper.Raheem Sterling’s penalty gave Manchester City the title.Chelsea were eliminated by Manchester United in the FA Cup.
And Ecclestone predicted: “I think Hamilton will win the championship.”The F1 supremo added: “Ferrari have been a little bit unlucky. A couple of races they could and should have won. So we’ll see, a long way to go.”Mercedes have only been defeated once in the seven races since the start of 2016, but Ferrari and Red Bull have increasingly challenged the world champions. Just three tenths of a second covered the three teams in qualifying in Canada last weekend and Sebastian Vettel arguably should have won the race for Ferrari.“It’s getting better isn’t it?” said Ecclestone, who hit the headlines ahead of the season when he said he would not buy a ticket for his family to watch F1. “We’ve got some racing.” The F1 supremo was speaking ahead of the European GP in Azerbaijan, where the new Baku City Circuit stages its first grand prix this weekend.The sport’s calendar has increased to a record 21 races this year and Ecclestone was coy about how many will form 2017’s schedule. “We’ll have to look and see,” he said. “We could have 22. We’ll probably have 18…” But asked if a reduction to as few as 18 was really a possibility, Ecclestone replied: “No.”Nonetheless, while a sharp reduction in races is unlikely, there doubts remain over several of F1’s most long-standing venues.The Italian GP at Monza has featured in every F1 season except one, but contract negotiations have become protracted and Ecclestone joked recently “all they’ve got to do is find a pen”.“They’re still looking,” he said on Thursday.Doubts over the Brazilian GP at Interlagos have also surfaced owing to delays in renovation work and Ecclestone admitted: “Brazil has got a few problems at the moment.”However, the 85-year-old reckons the oil price crisis which has afflicted the Azerbaijan economy over the past year will not put their new contract in jeopardy.“There’s more chance of them doing seven years than me doing seven years!” he quipped.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Bernie Ecclestone reckons Lewis Hamilton will end 2016 as F1’s world champion for the third successive year.Hamilton has cut Nico Rosberg’s once 43-point lead to just nine with back-to-back victories in Monaco and Montreal and could take over at the head of the Drivers’ Championship as early as this weekend if he wins the European GP and his Mercedes team-mate finishes third or lower.
