Your vote: Goalscorer Tomas Rosicky was Arsenal's Man Of The Match against Boro


With Tomas Rosicky's last minute consolation goal for Arsenal just about the only positive to take away from the Gunners' trip to Middlesbrough last weekend, it's hardly surprising that it won him your Arsenal Pies Man Of The Match award.

The 94th minute strike was one of only two Arsenal shots that were on target during the entire match, despite having 61% of possession. Quite simply, Arsenal were not good enough, while Boro's battling qualities saw them come away deserved 2-1 winners.

In our poll, 42 % of you nominated Rosicky, while Nicklas Bendtner and Manuel Almunia each amassed 10% of the votes, closesly followed by Gael Clichy and Theo Walcott on 9%. For the full poll results, click here.

Let's hope that the Gunners can bounce back with a win in the Champions League tonight to set us up with confidence for the crucial game with Chelsea at Dubaibury on Sunday.
