It was not exactly difficult tp pick the Arsenal Man of the Match from that horrific beating at the hands of Bayern Munich, as Alexis Sanchez showed great tenacity to follow up and score after his penalty was saved and for large parts of the game he seemed the only Gunner interested. The rest have all been marked down for their collective collapse but I have tried not to be too harsh as the Germans were very up for it and on top form.
Ospina 7 – Perhaps questions over their second but was otherwise helpless and also made great saves.
Bellerin 5 – Running against the tide but coped fairly well for most of the game.
Mustafi 5 – Lots of clearances but poor for second goal before losing the plot completely.
Kosielny 6 – A few key defensive actions. His exit heralded disaster
Gibbs 4 – Ouch. Not a great day to take the armband. Looked all at sea.
Coquelin 5 – Gave Robben too much room. Tried to stem tide with little help.
Xhaka 5 – One good shot was about it from the Swiss. Passed him by. Ineffective.
Ozil 4 – Apart from a few good balls was anonymous again. Good at waving his arms though.
Chamberlain 5 – Effort and some impact but awful giveaway for fifth goal.
Iwobi 4 – Was he even playing?
Alexis 7 – Good effort and goal but stop with the sulking and moaning will you.
Gabriel 4 – Awful positioning and decision making. Not good enough for Arsenal.
Walcott 4 – No impact.
Giroud 5 – Little impact.
