I have very mixed feelings about this game. We should have won easily but found ourselves 3-0 down. It was a great comeback but Arsenal hardly looked like title challengers. Anyway here are my Player Ratings for the Bournemouth game.
Petr Cech: 5
Didn’t get near any of the goals and should never have conceded from those angles. He has never saved a penalty for Arsenal. Could have done much better but the defence hardly helped him…
Hector Bellerin 4
Not up to his usual best, but then it seems he was injured and shouldn’t have played
Shkodran Mustafi 5
His worst performance since his arrival, but helped out in attack later on
Laurent Koscielny 4
Not up to his usual best, but again it seems he was injured and shouldn’t have played. What’s wrong with Holding?
Nacho Monreal 6
Definitely our best defender, looked dangerous.
Granit Xhaka 5
Improved into the game, but when will he stop shoving people??
Francis Coquelin 4
Rubbish. Another one should not have been on the field with an injury
Alex Iwobi 4
Hardly noticed he was on the field
Aaron Ramsey 5
Was made to look good but only because the rest were awful
Alexis Sanchez 7
What would Arsenal do without him? Started our comeback and injected some urgency into the game.
Olivier Giroud 6
Should have been man of the match but why act like an idiot at the end?
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain 6.5
Very good performance. Should have been on from the start
Lucas Perez 6.5
Another good performance. Brilliant finish. Why is he always on the bench?
Gabriel Paulista 4
Didn’t have much to do to be fair…
