Stats & Video: Arsenal loanee Matteo Guendouzi stars in Marseille victory

Arsenal loanee Matteo Guendouzi returned to his absolute best for Marseille yesterday with three goal contributions as his side won 4-1 over Lorient.

The midfielder is currently on loan from the Gunners, where he will see out the season in Ligue 1, and it remains to be seen whether the club will look to make his temporary stay more permanent in the near future.

Guendouzi will not have scared off any potential suitors with his performance yesterday however, with his stats showing he was on the ball throughout as his side overturned a 1-0 deficit to win 4-1.

You can see the full highlights of the victory below, including both of Guendouzi’s goals.

Could Guendouzi return to north London to fight for a role in the future?

    That ship has sailed, hasn’t it?
    There seems to be a option in the loan contract that allows OM to sign Matteo permanently, and for a ridiculously low price.
    They might decide to not take up on it, but that would mean even worse on young Guendouzi…

    What turned me off of Arteta was the way he scapegoated Guendouzi, Saliba and Torreira. Xhaka was the direct cause we didn’t beat Brighton to get into the Champions League. Arteta gave away an anarchic penalty and screwed us. Arteta though could not cope with a passionate Guendouzi, but forgave the lunatic Xhaka. Arteta also punished Saliba on a whim, poverty struck treatment. He then spent 50,000,000 on White that could have been spent better considering we had Saliba. There is a dark side to Arteta that, to me, that stops players giving their all to Arteta. Players don’t seem to want to perform for him…….or maybe he is just a lousy coach full stop. Our football is so very poor.

      Xhaka gave the penalty away….sorry.

      Sean Williams Guendouzi showed Yesterday just what Arsenal are missing Brilliant work rate with assists and 2 goals We need him back but Arteta threw his dummy out the pram and he does not want anybody he did not sign but he bought 2 . goalkeepers that he now wants to sell does he really know what he is doing

      Arteta this..Arteta that… He is also the Antichrist.. Comparing this childish indiscipline hothead to Xhaka who was being abused and his family threatened is the height of dishonesty..but coming from you.. no surprise

      1. Sean Williams says:

        Mark 2.0 (definitely not the Mark of the ‘Book’.

        Not the brightest post. Haven’t seen the Anti-Christ on JA, ever and Xhaka is definitely not the Anti-Christ . He is just a ‘Thug’. The article is about Guendouzi, you could at least include him in your silly post to make whatever point your trying to unsuccessfully make about the Anti-Christ.. 0 out of 10.

          Wow..do you understand English???

  3. Koma says:

    Good work. But as long as Arteta is in the helm, Gouendouzi won’t come back. Arteta is slowly destroying this team

    1. PBarany says:

      True.
      I just don’t understand why isn’t that obvious to everyone.

  4. NY_Gunner says:

    Like I said before, Matteo is hands down better than “everyone”of our current midfield players…

    1. Mark 2.0 says:

      Yeah sure.. Your bias knows no limits does it???

      1. NY_Gunner says:

        @Mark 2.0
        Nah…Seems your ignorance is the thing thats limitless here dude. Get outta ya feelins and check into reality.

  5. Durand says:

    Part of our struggle is poor man management by Arteta; consequences of an inexperienced coach. Guendouzi, Saliba, and AMN were loaned making us a far weaker side using Elneny, Mari, and Chambers.

  6. The football watcher says:

    Guendouzi is a top talent and will now fulfill his potential elsewhere. Watching Marseille this season is a joy- I believe they may make a challenge for the. ligue 1 title especially as Pochettino is so averse to trophies and is struggling to handle the egos in the French capital and get them to form a team.

  7. Koma says:

    Gouendouzi used to give Arsenal the energy that we currently lack in the midfield. Maybe Lokonga can do that. But we lack that spark in the midfield.

  8. jon fox says:

    I disagree 100″ with all the above posts, which are silly, immature and plain wrong.

    The fanciful Idea that Arteta ia out to destroy our team, as the ludicrous KoMa claims, is so laughablY WRONG as to be ridiculous!
    I applaud MA’s correct decision to banish a rotten apple from our club, as he and all wiser Gooners know how team spirit can be damaged by such types.

    Guendouzi will NEVER again wear our shirt competively and I praise and applaud the wise Arteta for that mercy!

  9. kelvin says:

    some arsenal fans seem to mistake rotten behaviour for passion. quendouzi is a fine player no doubt but his character can destroy the team spirit. so he would have been more of a negative impact on the team than whatever positives on the pitch. So Arteta as a young coach did the most sensible thing, as he is trying to build his team not destroy the team

  10. Koma says:

    Losing players like Gouendouzi, Seliba, Maitland-Niles, and Nelson will be a real setback in times of rebuilding. Arsenal needs to get rid of Arteta, because even though he spends exorbitant amounts, the team does not progress. Gouendouzi is coming from French league 2. What he needs is guidance, not victimization. It’s gonna take Arteta sometime to learn about human management
