‘Wow’, ’10/10 for me’: Some fans blown away by ‘immense’ Arsenal loanee’s display last night

Arsenal midfielder Ben Sheaf is doing well for himself away from the Emirates Stadium on loan this season.

The Gunners academy ace, who has made two senior appearances for the North Londoners, sealed a switch to Championship side Coventry back in September.

To date, Sheaf has made 10 appearances in all competitions for the Sky Blues, including seven league starts and 90 minutes in the last six league games.

On Friday night, the 22-year-old helped his current side claim a shock 3-2 win over early pacesetters Reading, who had won seven and drawn one of their opening eight league games.

The Royals’ run came to an end in a five-goal thriller which saw Gustavo Hamer, Matt Godden and Sam McCallum score for the hosts, while Lucas Joao and George Puscas netted for the visitors.

Sheaf was deployed in a deep role and did well to break up Reading’s attacks, showing tenacity and passing the ball well, though he did make an error for one of the opposition’s goals.

That said, he still earned the Sky Sports Man of the Match award, with some impressive stats under his belt including one chance created, three interceptions, two clearances, one block and eight times he won back possession.

 

Here is what some Coventry fans on social media made of his performance:
