Arsenal 2- 0 Hull City Player Ratings by KJ
Ospina – 6.5
Didn’t have any real saves to make at all throughout the game. It was relatively comfortable for him but he didn’t make any mistakes and was quick with his distribution.
Bellerin – 7
He had a very solid game both offensively and defensively. Overlapped well and used his pace to good effect numerous times.
Chambers – 6
Didn’t have much to do all game but did what was required of him.
Mertesacker – 7
Same as Chambers but he did open the scoring with a headed goal from a corner. Who’d have thought it?
Monreal – 6
Didn’t do much defensively and was struggling against Hull players cutting in from the right. He was good in the attacking third.
Coquelin – 6.5
A solid display. Intercepted and tackled well enough. Almost got sent off late on thanks to a rush of blood.
Rosicky – 7
He did well in midfield and combined with the attackers players extremely well in the first half.
Cazorla – 8
Very good performance once again. He has stepped up over the last two months (probably because of the absence of Wilshere and Ozil) and it has really been beneficial to the team and his overall impact.
Campbell – 5.5
His work rate is admirable but there are massive questions over his actual ability to play for us. It’s just too raw. His close control is sloppier than Sanogo which is a massive problem.
Walcott – 6
His runs were extremely intelligent and caused Hull problems all game but his finishing was lacking and overall play is clearly hindered by his apparent rustiness.
Alexis – 8.5 (MOTM)
Another quality performance. He was all over Hull and scored a delightful goal. It is truly magical to have a player of his quality at the club and I can’t wait for him, Theo and Mesut to properly combine over a period of 2-3 months.
Akpom – N/A
Didn’t impact the game much when he came on
Oxlade-Chamberlain – 6
He did well when he came on and danced his way around Hull easily
Maitland-Niles – N/A
Didn’t have time to impact the game.
