Arsenal did not score but we did have to play the whole second half with 10 men and were further reduced to nine after Mike Dean sent off Gabriel and Cazorla, but Theo Walcott was lively and our biggest threat, even if he did get caught narrowly offside a few times. And there was not too much competition on the Arsenal team for Man if the Match.
Cech 6 – Made some good saves and could do nothing for goals.
Bellerin 5.5 – Okay, worked hard, created a bit but was sloppy with the ball at times.
Gabriel 5 – Did well until his moment of madness. Needed help from team mates.
Koscielny 6 – Apart from his mistake on the goal he defended really well.
Monreal 5.5 – Similar game to Bellerin.
Coquelin 6 – Doing a great job until his knock which saw him replaced at the break. That cost us.
Cazorla 5 – What was he thinking? Not a captain´s job at all.
Ozil 5.5 – Did some good work but not enough.
Ramsey 6 – Tireless and decent but still not quite happening.
Alexis 6.5 – Really needs a goal to kick start his season but he never gives up.
Walcott 7 – If only we had kept 11 men I think his pace and movement could have been telling. Getting better.
Chambers 6 – Unlucky with the deflection but stepped in well.
Chamberlain 6 – Tried to make things happen and almost did.
Giroud 5.5 – Too late for him to have much effect.
Mike Dean -4 – Useless idiot.
