    Vieira, on Arsenal: Personality, physicality — “This is what they’re missing”

    “Arsenal used to be great; Arsenal used to be feared; Arsenal used to win things.” It’s more than just a cliche coming from Patrick Vieira, because he lived it. He was it. So when Vieira comes out and says his beloved Arsenal is looks noting like the one he represented for nine trophy-filled seasons from 1996-2005 (three Premier League titles and four FA Cups), you have to listen to the man.

Kurzawa, who scored several goals in pre-season friendly matches, made it 2-0 midway through the second half when he headed powerfully home from Di Maria’s corner. The third goal came from Marco Verratti
