Arsenal player ratings following 1-0 win over Bournemouth
It was not a poor display against Bournemouth but neither was it a great one from Arsenal. It was a lacklustre game but a win is a win as they say.
No individual player had a bad game, they were all efficient in a match with very few chances for either side.
Clean sheet and made a crucial stop late in the game but very little to do otherwise.
Calum Chambers 7
Another decent display from Chambers who is growing in confidence as each game passes.
Looked uncomfortable, at times, in a game that was almost impossible to be uncomfortable in.
David Luiz 8
A clean sheet, a goal, no errors and some decent tackling, fine game.
Sead Kolasinac 6
Did ok but never really sets the world alight, there is just so little to be positive about.
Matteo Guendouzi 6
Back to his busy self without actually doing anything that productive.
Granit Xhaka 6
Really negative display from the captain, far too deep too often and it is killing creativity.
Bukayo Saka 7
Thought he had a decent game, he tried to create something but he was alone too often in that quest.
Dani Ceballos 5
He just is not producing the goods on any sort of consistent basis. This game was set up for the Spaniard but he did not step up.
Nicolas Pepe 5
Gets an assist because he took the corner but there has to be more and soon. Just not good enough at the moment.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 6
He was eager but is clearly missing Lacazette as a partner upfront. There is too much being put on the Gabon international and he cannot deliver the goods every game.
Gabrielle Martinelli 5
Came on for Pepe and was as quiet as anyone else on the field, did ok.
Joe Willock 5
The average rating is probably about right for Willock, did nothing special or bad.
Lucas Torreira 5
Not on long enough to influence the game and therefore gets average rating 5
