There were a few notable performances from Arsenal players as the Gunners got back to winning ways in Bournemouth yesterday, with our keeper Petr Cech, the goal scorers Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Mesut Ozil and Laurent Koscielny all impressing. For me though the outstanding player was Aaron Ramsey who capped a tireless and effective all round game with a key part in both goals.
Cech 8 – Key save just before half time and another two before the end capped great game.
Bellerin 6.5 – Decent defending but his attacking threat was not great.
Gabriel 7 – Good game under plenty of pressure after an early error. Improving with games.
Koscielny 7.5 – The boss was always alert and aggressive and brought ball forward well.
Monreal 5.5 – Nearly cost us ball watching. Offered little in attack.
Flamini 5 – Reckless tackle could have ruined it but played well apart from that.
Ramsey 8.5 – Tackles, blocks, clearances, interceptions, the most touches and passes, key part in goals. Top stuff.
Chamberlain 7 – Still loses ball at times but also carries real threat. Great goal.
Ozil 8 – Key role as ever, hard work and 98 percent passing accuracy. Great goal.
Alexis 7 – Still not quite up to match sharpness but getting close.
Giroud 7.5 – Good game, tireless work and assist for the opening goal.
Coquelin 7 – Sharp and aggressive. Needs to start against Leicester.
Gibbs 6 – Did okay in limited time.
Walcott – No time for a rating.
