Like some boring, repetitive dream, another keeper no-one had ever heard off turned up at the Emirates and had a worldie on Saturday.
Eldin Jakupovic rocked up at the Emirates, played his seventh game of the season, and kept Arsenal at arm’s length ensuring Hull and Arsenal would get to meet yet again in the FA Cup. Yawn.
To be fair, although he pulled off a couple of great saves, the majority of efforts were straightforward for him and Arsenal need to look at their finishing ahead of their next match against the best side in the world.
But while many of the saves that earned Jakupovic the man of the match award may have been routine, he made more saves against Arsenal than any other keeper has managed this season.
Worth the award on that basis alone, I guess.
11 – Eldin Jakupovic made 11 saves against Arsenal, the most by an opposition keeper against them in any game this season. Barrier.
