There were some much improved performances from individual Arsenal players in the 3-0 win over AFC Bournemouth yesterday, although it was really the whole team that was better as they responded in just the right way after a poor start to the Premier League season. Ozil, Ramsey, Lacazette and Kolasinac all impressed but it was an easy choice of Danny Welbeck for our best player as he scored two, gave a nice assist and nearly had a third with a great bit of skill and a chip that just went wide.
Cech 6 _ rarely troubled on a nice easy day between the sticks.
Mustafi 7 – Looked sharp and committed. Great tackle late on.
Koscielny 7 – Marshalled defence well but was not put under much pressure.
Monreal 7 – Confidence building better game back on the left.
Bellerin 7 – Always looking to get forward. Good outlet on right, Worked hard.
Xhaka 7 – Got better after an early mistake and looked in control.
Ramsey 7.5 – Great assist for Welbeck’s 2nd. Good all round game.
Kolasinac 8 – Got us going with quality run and cross for Welbeck’s 1st. A real find.
Ozil 7.5 – Back to what he does best, weaving patterns and making Arsenal tick.
Lacazette 7.5 – Showd his sharp shooting skills again and played well.
Welbeck 8.5 – Really justified Wenger’s faith with match winning performance.
Coquelin(67) 6 – Lo9oked good until injury. Hopefully not a serious one.
Giroud(75) 6 – Put himself about well and looked sharp.
Alexis(75) 7 – Glimpses of the star striker we know.
