Former Arsenal Academy graduate Henri Lansbury looked like a shrewd bit of business back in the January 2017 transfer window as we secured his signing from Nottingham Forest with a snip £2.75million fee.

The spell hasn’t exactly gone to plan for the now 28-year-old as injuries have significantly affected both his form and his game time, and to date, he only has 26 starting appearances to his name in our shirt, along with a further nine showings from the substitutes bench.

With his 2018/19 season hit again, we’ve only seen him on the pitch five times this year, but the showing against Norwich City on the final day of the regular Championship campaign did see him standout when it came to his performance – especially as head coach Dean Smith had chosen to rest key players.

With the club taking to social media to praise his showing on the day, it gained an interesting reaction from fans.

It was a decent showing, but the bar for Lansbury given what we’ve seen so far is pretty low in fairness. He’s a good option to have ahead of the coming Play-Off battle, but I don’t see how he’s given Smith a selection headache, certainly at least not yet.
