It was not hard to pick the best Arsenal player from the disappointing defeat away to West Brom, as Alexis Sanchez was head and shoulders above the rest and we can only regret that his hard work and brilliance were not matched by those around him and that he did not get any of the clear cut chances that came our way.
Cech 7 – Can´t be too critical but maybe could have done better for their second.
Bellerin 5 – Bit of a rusty return for the young Spaniard. At fault in both goals.
Mertesacker 5 – What happened Per? Was not the leader at the back we needed.
Koscielny 6 – Should have taken out Rondon before second goal but was generally good.
Monreal 7 – Tried hard going forward and was solid.
Coquelin 7 – Did his usual job in his brief time on the pitch.
Cazorla 5 – Marked him down a lot for that shocking penalty.
Alexis 9 – Wasn´t he supposed to be tired? Sharp as a tack and endless effort.
Ozil 8 – Another assist and so unlucky not to get more and score himself.
Gibbs 7 – I actually thought he did a good job although his finishing let us down.
Giroud 7 – Good goal and all round effort.
Arteta 4 – Has he ever had a worse game I wonder?
Flamini 6 – Did little wrong and was clearly desperate to help us get a goal.
Campbell 5 – Spurned our best chance.
