Arsenal Player Ratings for crucial win at Wolves – Got to be Odegaard MOTM

It’s a bit late I know but as there is another six weeks until Arsenal play again, so I don’t think it really matters!

What does matter is that we are top at Xmas and we have lots of time to bask in the reflected glory from our beloved team being top of the League.

So here are my Player Rating for Wolves v Arsenal

Aaron Ramsdale: 7
Another clean sheet as bottom of the table Wolves only had 2 shots on target

Ben White: 7
Had to work hard and was his usual top quality with more touches than every other player. He’s getting excellent at his long passing ability.

Gabriel: 7
This centre-back partnership looks more solid every week. Long may it continue.

William Saliba: 7
Showed again why France are right to take him to the World Cup.

Thomas Partey: 8
Our rock. Please don’t get injured at the World Cup!

Granit Xhaka: N/A
Was it a knock or the tummy bug? But only lasted 15 minutes and touched the ball twice.

Olexsandr Zinchenko: 7
Proved to be a very good buy when he’s not injured. Made as many crosses into the box as Saka and Martinelli

Bukayo Saka: 7
Had more room than against Chelsea and was his usual excellent self. Had a goal taken off his feet by Odegaard.

Martin Odegaard: 9
We just have to give him Man Of The Match for his goals, It’s a shame hes not going to the World Cup.

Gabriel Jesus: 8
Our Duracell Bunny was all over Wolves and had 5 shots on goal, but it’s just not going in at the mo….

Gabi Martinelli: 8
He’s a nightmare for defenders and I’m sure he’ll set Qatar on fire if given the chance.

SUBS:

Fabio Vieira 7
First time he’s played so long for the first team and after a nervous start seemed to up his game. I have confidence he will be a regular soon enough..

  1. Odegaard was creative and lethal when he wasn’t physically bullied

    I don’t think Martinelli will be a regular starter at the World Cup, but I believe Jesus will be

  2. For me it was a credit to the entire team. 1st half didn’t have many shots on goal and struggled to break them down.

    2nd half they remained patient, trusted each other to do their jobs, and kept chopping wood. They had a breakthrough from marvelous teamwork for the goal, and Odegaard’s 2nd was an opportunistic goal that we need more of.

    Great cohesion throughout, and why we got the the breakthrough goals.

  3. TBH, it was dire until we scored.
    Wolves parked the bus and we had no idea how to shift it. After the goal, the game was good and entertaining. But we need far more pace in passing at times.

    SOMETIMES we start far too slowly, despite media saying we go for their throats from the off.

    Only SOMETIMES we do. Other times we are far too slow in passing, as at Wolves. PASSING PACE is absolutely vital to all successful teams. Our CB s are far too slow in getting the ball forward to our midfield. And you can grow a beard while waiting for a throw in by White!

    1. Food poisoning does that to you, after the game a reporter who went to interview Zincenko was met with sorry have to go with his hand on his stomach half the team was suffering so you see this was a hard game in many ways and players were under par, even Tierney who kept rushing to the toilet from the subs bench

    2. You are correct Dude.On another day, against better opposition, the frailties of Zinchenko and for that matter, Saliba could have proved costly.

    3. He was not great defensively, but he was ordered to drift to midfield, and that enabled us to control the game, so he deserves much credit.

  4. Ronaldo having a hard time ManU, but i think he would be perfect to compliment for Jesus in front, plus he is a serial winner.

  5. Odegaard continues to amaze me and now he has added goals to his armoury. Vieira played well, I think and am sure he will improve with more PL experience. Praying that Partey and our other players dont get injured at the World Cup. Ben Whites improvement has been phenomenal and lot of credit for this has to go to Arteta. AS for Jesus, the goals will surely come, it is just a question of time. But the work rate he is putting in and his ethics make the team look far more stronger and his press is relentless. The partnership of Saliba and Gabriel reminds me of the old times, Kion, Campbell and of course Tony Adams. May our successful run continue as long as possible.
