While a lot of Arsenal fans and most of the football pundits who saw the Gunners produced a dominant display and a 4-1 win over CSKA Moscow will award their Man of the Match to Mesut Ozil for a brilliant display, I am giving it to Aaron Ramsey who also had a great game. The main reason is that second wonder goal from the Welshman which capped his all-round game.
Cech 7 – Apart from the free kick which two keepers would have struggled with the veteran keeper was in control.
Bellerin 7 – Not always convincing in defence but played well and produced perfect ball for Ramsey opener.
Mustafi 6 – Horrible decision to pass centrally in run up to equaliser and a few scary moments. Not convincing.
Koscielny 7 – Bad decision for their free kick goal but strong and stable apart from that.
Monreal 7.5 – Very good from the consistently reliable Spaniard. Perhaps unlucky not to score himself.
Xhaka 7 – Apart from wild shank before Golovin goal the Swiss had a strong game in middle with great passing.
Wilshere 7 – Made some mistakes later on and looked a bit jaded. Generally good though if not spectacular.
Ramsey 9 MOTM – What a goal!! Involved and a threat throughout. Back to his best maybe?
Ozil 9 – Ran the game. Sublime skills, Keep it up Mesut and we could win this thing!
Mkhitaryan 8 – Looked sharp and unlucky not to score. Hopefully injury is a minor one.
Lacazette 8 – Sometimes frustrated but he’s a proper finisher and getting match sharper.
Iwobi 6 – Should have shot rather than pass but decent from the bench.
Elneny 6 – Steadied ship and played well.
Welbeck – Looked sharp. Keeper very lucky to deny him a goal.
