Arsenal player ratings from FA cup win over Man City – Ox MOTM

This FA cup semi-final win came through a hard working if not exactly free flowing Arsenal performance. We held firm despite being second best in the first half and managed to win in extra time thanks to a few strong individual showings from the likes of Gabriel and Holding, but for his overall contribution including the brilliant cross for Monreal’s leveller I gave my Man of the Match pick to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Cech 6 – Could have done more to stop Aguero opener but generally in control.

Gabriel 8 – Best performance from him in some time. Strong and committed.

Koscielny 7 – Missed a couple of tackles but still pretty good.

Holding 7.5 – Very good defensive display but should have scored that free header.

Xhaka 7 – Better from the Swiss but could still do more to control the centre.

Ramsey 6.5 – Got better but still rusty and making mistakes.

Monreal 7.5 – Great goal and good all round game down the left.

Oxlade-Chamberlain 8.5 – Dynamic and energetic display with key assist and plenty of good football.

Ozil 7 – Struggled to impact the game as much as usual but worked hard and played okay.

Alexis 7.5 – Not a lot of impact but came up with crucial winner.

Giroud 6 – Not a great game from the Frenchman.

Welbeck 7 – Impressive and dangerous off the bench. Decision making just let him down at times.

Bellerin and Coquelin 6 – Helped to see the game out in their short spells.

      Walcott would have finished at least one of the chances Welbeck failed to!!

      I have always said it that Chelsea, defensive set up built Cech’s reputation, he his totally past it…but no need for a new GK….next season, we should have:


      Szz can’t be worse than Cech, he even shared the golden glove with Cech some seasons ago, he just needs to be matured that’s all….

    Is winning the Cup enough for AFC if not in top 4 . Chelsea is no gimme in the Final ? On a one off game it is possible for AFC to beat anyone .
