As Arsenal fans wonder if Arsene Wenger has enough fire power to support Robin van Persie up front and ensure participation in the Champions League next season, Carlos Vela continues to bang in the goals in Spain.
The on-loan Arsenal striker has now claimed 10 goals in 24 appearances for Real Sociedad in 2011/2012 and is in red hot form having notched seven in the last nine matches.
On Sunday Vela produced a brilliant bicycle kick to secure a late point for Real Sociedad against Villarreal with the 1-1 draw ensuring the Arsenal forward and his side should be safe from relegation this season.
This is not the first time that Carlos Vela has scored a wonder goal during his loan spell at Sociedad – Arsenal’s 23-year-old old hitman cracked home another “chilena” in December against Malaga.
