PLAYERS: Jack Wilshere
Last time these two teams met there was more than enough deft ball striking to go around (Arsenal 5 – Reading 7), but this time it seems Jobi McAnuff may have taken the task too literally.

We all knew McAnuff runs a tight ship as captain, but who knew he was such a ball buster… (Okay, I’m done. I promise. Gif after the jump)  (Gif via Reddit)
