“Keep doing what he’s doing consistently, and his chance will arrive.”
That was Mikel Arteta’s response when asked what Joe Willock has to do to get a chance in the Premier League, but after another excellent display in the Europa League, the 21-year-old, who has drawn comparisons to former Arsenal midfielder Aaron Ramsey, is firmly knocking on his manager’s door to be included in the club’s Premier League squad.
Willock was an absentee from Arsenal’s 18-man squad at Old Trafford, but after two man-of-the-match displays in the Europa League and two goals in as many games in the competition, he is certainly doing all the right things.
Full of energy and running, Willock continually popped up in goal scoring positions and he played key roles in Arsenal’s first and second goals before putting the finishing touch on another fine display with an emphatic finish.
Will it be enough for him to get a chance when Arsenal take on Aston Villa in the Premier League on Sunday, live on Sky Sports Box Office?…
