N'zonzi selected in Crooks' team of the weekend

N'zonzi selected in Crooks' team of the weekend

After Stoke`s victory against Arsene Wenger`s men at the Britannia Stadium at the weekend, one player in particular impressed.

Steven N`Zonzi returned from a spell on the bench following his suspension last month and had a point to prove. The midfielder was phenomenal throughout the game and did enough to be selected in former Stoke player and now BBC pundit Garth Crooks team of the weekend.
Here`s what Garth had to say about the French midfielder:

Steven N`Zonzi

The last time I saw Stoke beat Arsenal when they were going for the championship was in 1970. Stoke won 5-0 and Peter Dobing destroyed a star-studded Arsenal team. Some 44 years later the scoreline isn't so emphatic but the 1-0 victory on Saturday was just as impressive. On this occasion it was Steven N'Zonzi who was Stoke's star man. His relentless harassing of Arsenal's midfield was incredible - and the key to Stoke's success. However, I also recall that after the 1970 fixture, Arsenal went on to win the League and Cup Double. Could we see a repeat?

Did you know? Steven N'Zonzi has made 1,373 passes this term; the 19th most in the Premier League and 422 more than any other Potters player.
