Arsenal 2 – 2 Hull City Player Ratings by KJ
Szczesny – 5
Didn’t have anything to do aside from pick the ball out of the net for the two times Hull scored.
Bellerin – 7
One of the only real positives out of today. He struggled at times but showed a lot of drive when we went down and was consistently making good tackles to win possession back.
Mertesacker – 4
He had an absolute shocker today and should’ve never been beaten for the second goal. He is the tallest player on the pitch and is well regarded for how good his positioning is, so to be beaten like that is embarrassing for him.
Monreal – 6.5
He was pretty decent considering he’s being played out of position. Was rarely tested though and this was probably one of the easiest games defensively he’ll play this season.
Gibbs – 5
Didn’t do enough at all in the attacking sense and struggled defensively at times.
Flamini – 4.5
He was pretty poor all game and should’ve been awarded a freekick when he was fouled for Hull’s first goal. But he still makes amateurish mistakes throughout the game that cost us.
Sanchez – 7.5 (MOTM)
He scored and assisted and usually that would mean he had a great performance but I felt he was a bit reckless at times and along with the team lacked any real direction. It took individual brilliance from him twice to salvage the result for us. He must be so demotivated at the moment as this is the 4th time we’ve given up the lead he’s given us.
Wilshere – 6
He was our only decent central midfielder today and even then, he didn’t really offer much in terms of breaking down the opposition in the final third.
Cazorla – 4
Played well for the first 15 minutes and then completely lost it. Should’ve been offering more control to the game but would lose it in silly positions or would slow the game down.
Oxlade-Chamberlain – 2
Absolutely dreadful. It was the performance of a 16 year old being given his debut. He’s lacking basic footballing intelligence at the moment and that is massively worrying.
Welbeck – 5.5
Didn’t play well throughout the game but I guess he did well to take his goal.
Ramsey – 4
He was lacking match fitness probably but he done nothing to add to our game. He slowed it down, couldn’t beat his man when needed and misplaced passes or over dribbled.
Campbell – 5.5
He did add a bit to our game but he lacks refinement and like Sanchez holds onto the ball for far too long.
