It was a great win by Arsenal last night, and a dominant display against Huddersfield was exactly what we needed ahead of our massive clash with Man United this weekend coming up. The Gunners have hit their very best form and we can look ahead with confidence at the moment.
There were some excellent performances in the Arsenal defence in the first half and the attacking side of the team took over in the second, so here are my ratings….
Petr Cech – 8
A well balanced display. Petr didn’t have a lot to do but when called upon he was great…
Laurent Koscielny – 8
Koss the Boss was brilliant as usual and seems very comfortable with his partners at the back
Shkodran Mustafi – 8
This was our 7th clean sheet in a row with Mustafi in defence and i don’t think it’s a coincidence! Solid and dependable..
Nacho Monreal – 7
Solid as usual, but there was a little bit of sloppy passing at times…
Granit Xhaka – 6
The jury is still out on Xhaka. Not very influential as Ramsey took control of the centre. Had one shot that was way off target!
Aaron Ramsey – 9
Excellent. He really is flourishing as the midfield general now. Two assists and the first flick for Lacazette’s opener was brilliant
Sead Kolasinac – 7
He hasn’t looked so much of a Tank lately as the rest of the team have improved. An average game for me and another that left his shooting boots at home.
Hector Bellerin – 6
Not involved as he should have been against such a weak side. Average day at the office.
Mesut Ozil – 9.5
The highest rating I’ve ever given. The Assist King is back. If only he’d never gone away! Even scored one himself. Brilliant.
Alexis Sanchez – 6
Scored a goal but not reached top form as far as I’m concerned. Welbeck could have contributed more than him I think.
Alexandre Lacazette – 7
Well taken opener but got injured soon after. He was trying but I think Wenger should have taken him off earlier.
Olivier Giroud – 7
You can’t knock his efforts with two goals but he may improve further with regular playing time. He will be keen to take advantage of Lacazette’s injury.
Wilshere – 6
Got a great cheer when he came on but will be better with more game time under his belt
Welbeck – 6
Another one needs more match fitness
