Arsenal were not as bad as many of us had feared they would be after losing away to Stoke last weekend. They were much worse than that and could not even point to some bad luck and dodgy decisions. It did not matter in the grand scheme of things as the Gunners ended up on the wrong end of a hefty 4-0 scoreline but our keeper Petr Cech was the only Arsenal player to come away from the game having played well and the3 score could have been much worse without him.
Cech 7 MOTM – His example and resilience kept it from being even worse but could not affect result.
Holding 4 – Booked and beaten by the Liverpool attack time and again.
Koscielny 6 – Unable to stem the tide on his own but did play sort of okay on his return.
Monreal 4 – Another shocker from the Spaniard who looks a shadow of his former self.
The Ox 4 – Did nothing to help us defend and almost nothing going forward.
Ramsey 5 – Sacrificed after poor first half but could easily have been Xhaka as he won his two tackles and passed the ball better.
Xhaka 4 – What on earth has happened to him. Another loose ball led to first goal and had no impact throughout.
Bellerin 4 – Another costly mistake for Salah goal highlighted an awful game from Hector.
Ozil 4 – Hopeless, uninspired and failed to put in the effort.
Welbeck 6 – At least he tried but should have done better with early chance.
Alexis 5 – We hoped for so much more ion his return. Poor.
Coquelin 6 – Played okay but could do little against a rampant home team.
Giroud and Lacazette 6 – Looked sharp and at least bothered coming off the bench.
