The Italian international winger surprised many when he left the mighty Juventus to join a rather lowly Premier League side in Sunderland. Sure, money played a factor and the league itself is a bit more competitive than the Serie A, but this kid has too much skill and pace to join a team that has no chance in winning big things.

With this goal, he proves the point -- period.

The Czech international was always known as a fast, skillful and unselfish midfielder, but after scoring the goal he did against Sunderland at the weekend, he proved that he should still be starting games since he is a crucial element to Arsenal's passing and attacking game.

    That Rooney goal was superb.

    I thought that Rosicky’s was the goal of the week — the superb buildup and team involvement in the goal being the team. The other goals were more due to the brilliance of the individual effort. Dont you think so?
