Another poor performance and the player ratings reflect that.
Normally I wait a couple of hours before I stick the player ratings up but I have a sneaky feeling Unai Emery may be gone tonight and that will be the focus of upcoming articles.
Also, I am not sure the players deserve for emotions to be calmed. This time they will be rated while the fury is still raw.
Martinez – 6
Cannot really blame him for the goals, did as well as expected I suppose.
Tierney – 6
Did ok in defence but where was the blistering runs up the flank we were lead to believe he would bring?
Mustafi – 7
Thought he put in another solid performance, do not blame him for the second goal because he took a knock and you could see that on his face.
He was poor, no idea how he keeps getting in the team, made one good stop from memory and that was it.
Chambers – 4
Did about ok in defence but was woeful going forward, he is not a wing-back.
Luiz – 5
He looked ok in the defensive midfield role but his first touch was poor, was subbed early due to injury.
Xhaka – 6
Had a fairly decent game all things considered but was lacking going forward.
Willock – 8
The youngster was electric in the first half but went into his shell in the second. Best Arsenal player tonight.
Martinelli – 6
A decent performance and was unlucky not to score in the first half but faded as the game went on.
Saka – 5
Showed a lot of energy and that was really about it. Average game.
Aubameyang – 5
Gets a five purely because of his goal otherwise would have been a four. Another poor game it has to be said.
Guendouzi – 5
Poor first touch. offered no creativity at all.
Ozil – 5
Just average when he came on, made no difference.
Torreira – 5
Did what he could but he is no game-changer, strange substitution when you are a goal down.
