It was hard work for Arsenal going forward as Olympiakos showed us how to defend but we did create a lot and both Walcott and Alexis scored great goals, with the Chilean again our best player. The defenders and keeper, though, had another shocker.
Ospina 4 – Not to blame for 1st or 3rd but his clanger for the second changed the game.
Bellerin 5 – Not awful but quiet and below par.
Gabriel 5 – Some good work but some terrible moments.
Koscielny 5.5 – Bad day but we need him back quick.
Gibbs 6 – Pretty good return at left back.
Coquelin 5.5 – Seemed a bit slow and didn´t offer the usual protection.
Cazorla 6 – Lots of the ball and some decent play against a determined and hard working defence but no real cutting edge.
Chamberlain 7 – Lots of attacking intent and threat, maybe should have opened the scoring though. Better defensively.
Ozil 6 – Tough game but always looking to find that killer ball.
Alexis 8.5 – We could do with 10 of him. Busy, dangerous and making things happen. Brilliant assist and goal.
Walcott 8 – Learning his centre forward role all the time. Bit lucky with his finish off the keeper but worked well and provided a great assist. Should have done better late on.
Mertesacker 5.5 – Okay up until his flimsy challenge for their winner.
Ramsey 7.5 – Tried hard and nearly changed the game for us.
Campbell – No time.
Wenger 5 – I understand why he picked Ospina but the manager must live by his decisions and this one proved very costly.
