A much needed win for Arsenal but really need to start turning more chances into goals. Wolves will be much tougher…
Here are my ratings…
Aaron Ramsdale: 6
Didn’t have too much to do but looked a bit comical when Brentford scored..
Cedric Soares: 7
Played well as cover for Tomi, and got forward often
Ben White: 8
Had an excellent commanding game at the back and even nearly scored…
Solid in defence and helping out in attack too…
Kieran Tierney: 7
Kept bombing down the wing but didn’t get his usual consistent crosses in..
Thomas Partey: 7
Great to have him back on form, we’re going to need him in the weeks ahead. Had more shots that Lacazette!
Granit Xhaka: 6
A standard performance from Granit, but needs to get used to having Partey alongside him.
Martin Odegaard 8
He seems more commanding every week. Our new engine room..
Bukayo Saka: 8
As always the Little Chili made a nuisance of himself and an excellent goal
Emile Smith Rowe: 9
Saved Arsenal’s blushes by scoring an excellent individual goal. There will be calls for him to start every week now…
Alex Lacazette: 7
Lively as always, but can’t help thinking we need a real goalscorer up front. Hopefully we’ll see Martinelli back against Wolves..
Pepe: N/A but good to see him get some minutes at last
Eddie Nketiah: N/A (only had 2 touches)
