Arsenal put in one of their performances of the season as they ran riot over Sunderland, winning 4-1. Alexis Sanchez and super-sub Olivier Giroud both recorded braces as the Gunners ended the day as table toppers.

However, French midfielder Francis Coquelin was heavily under scrutiny for his overall showing in the game. Due to the absence of Santi Cazorla and Granit Xhaka, the Arsenal midfield had a makeshift look, featuring Mohamed Elneny alongside the Frenchman.

But with both being holding midfielders, the duo struggled in alternating the holding and box-to-box roles between the two. Coquelin managed to find himself with the sight of goal on a number of occasions but did nothing to trouble the opposition defence. He also made a number of cynical challenges and was duly a topic for discussion on social media.
