TASTY KIWI ‘ ARSENAL fans have gone wild for Jakub Kiwior’s “insane” passing.
That’s after their January signing from Spezia put in an impressive display for the U21s last night.

Kiwior is still waiting to make his senior bow
Kiwior, 23, was snapped up by Mikel Arteta last month for £21million.
And the Poland international looks set to have a bright future at the Emirates as he waits to make his first senior appearance.
But Kiwior, whose fiancee is a super-flexible twerk queen, got a chance to strut his stuff in yesterday’s U21 clash against Chelsea.
The centre-back started the 1-0 defeat at Kingsmeadow but put in an accomplished performance.

However, it was his passing that caught the eye of eager Arsenal fans, with Kiwior picking out a teammate on the right wing with pinpoint accuracy.
One fan said: “My jaw dropped when I saw this.”
Another declared: “That’s an insane pass.”
One noted: “If you think an U21 game is going to convince me that Kiwior will be the greatest ball-playing CB in the world… you’re absolutely right.”
Another added: “We lack a defender who can accurately deliver long passes like that.
“I remember Arteta saying Kiwior is going to redefine our style of play. Imagine a counter attack with him supplying Martinelli or Saka with long balls like that.”
Kiwior wasn’t the only senior player to make an impression for Arsenal’s U21s last night.
Emile Smith Rowe was also in action after an injury-packed season.
The winger, 22, has played just 63 minutes for the first-team after undergoing groin surgery in September.
He then suffered a thigh injury on his return in January’s FA Cup win over Oxford, keeping him out for another six weeks.
And Smith Rowe has now seen new signing Leandro Trossard move ahead of him in the rankings.
