Yet again we see a match where Arsenal had over 70% of the possession and another 23 shots on goal, but we only won thanks to Mesut Ozil’s wonder volley in the 23rd minute, and Petr Cech standing firm, not that he had that much to do!
So here are my ratings…
Had another easy game as most of the action was in the other half, but did his job when needed.
Was reasonable in defence and up the wing but with no end product as usual lately
Definitely a lot better than some recent performances, but maybe Monreal made him look good!
Just did his job, hardly impressive
Looking a good addition to the side and performed well despite him not playing in his best position.
Why does Wenger keep relying on him. he has gone backwards and showed his frustration by getting a totally unnecessary yellow right at the end.
Looked lively despite his second game 3 days although he played a bit deeper this time around. Missed another easy chance.
Kept losing the ball, running into walls, misplaced passes and wild shooting. Who does he think he is, Alexis Sanchez? I couldn’t wait for him to go off. Welbeck was only a slight improvement.
The only bright spark on another dismal day. Excellent goal
Useless! See Iwobi above…
Was left alone up front but got his chances and blew them all. For once I was happy to see him go off, although Giroud didn’t look much better!
