Wenger - Nacho is absolutely vital for us

Thirteen minutes, one goal, two assists: not bad on your first game back after a month out injured.

Nacho Monreal was in terrific form as we beat Crystal Palace on Saturday, and afterwards Arsene Wenger was full of praise for the Spain international.

"He is an important player for us and we could see that again today," the Arsenal manager told Arsenal Player. "When he was out, we missed him because he has experience, he is serious, he is reliable. Of course, it is important that he is with us.

"He is absolutely vital for us because he can play centre back in the three, he can play full-back in the four. It gives me many options to choose the tactics of the way we play, before the game.

"He is confident, he has good timing and he is an intelligent player and a very professional player."
