You will not score many hat-tricks and yet fail to get the Man of the Match award and I do feel a bit mean to the Arsenal and England forward Theo Walcott but I think Jack Wilshere just edged him out with a brilliant performance against West Brom today. He even outdid Theo with his goal.
Ospina 6 – A bystander for most of the game. Made a couple of saves but was at fault for the goal.
Bellerin 7 – Tireless work and added to our width in attack.
Mertesacker 7 – Never really troubled and looks back to his best.
Gabriel 7 – An assured performance from the Brazilian.
Gibbs 7 – Wenger has a tough job picking between him and Monreal.
Coquelin 7 – Sharp, steady and aggressive in the tackle as usual.
Cazorla 7.5 – Controlled the tempo of the game without really catching the eye.
Wilshere 9 – Stunning return to form. He looked unstoppable.
Ozil 8 – Slick and sharp and never looked flustered in the tightest of spaces.
Alexis 8 – Just what we have come to expect from the Chilean which is maybe why we don’t appreciate him as much as we should.
Walcott 8.5 – A timely reminder of his calmness in front of goal and that he gives Arsenal something different.
Giroud 6 – Anonymous in his short time.
Ramsey 7 – Did his best to show he should not lose out to Wilshere. Unlucky to hit woodwork twice.
