Fresh from an assist in midweek against Benfica, Willian provided two more as we won on the road at Leicester City on Sunday.
It capped off a fine individual performance from the Brazilian forward, and Mikel Arteta is delighted that we are starting to see the best of him.
“He was really good,” our manager said. “We've seen that in training the last few weeks. He's rebuilding himself and he's not accepted the situation.
“I think he was the player who changed the game against Benfica in the last few moments when he came on, and today I think he was terrific.
“The same with the other senior players. Laca, I think the way he played, Nico grew in the game and had a big impact as well. Granit as well. A player who has played that many minutes, to play with the heart and the passion he showed in every action, I think it's a great example for the rest of the players.”
