Another disappointing Arsenal result and there is enough blame to be shared around
Can anyone really say they are surprised by what we witnessed today? I mean, genuinely that performance basically epitomises Arenal this season.
Yet another game that the defence is unable to hold on to a lead. I am starting to wonder if it is all mental because the squad is strong enough to be beating teams like Wolves at the Emirates.
Anyway, let’s get on with the ratings and today I will not be generous.
All I will say is that if it was not for Leno we could have lost that game.
Got skinned down the left at the start but adapted his game and started defending differently. He is still coming to terms with his new surroundings and overall, was the best defender today.
Completely average. He is in no way the solution to the defensive problems at Arsenal.
He again proved today that he is a world-class moaner and a poor defender. At least he is consistent.
Poor game but then he is being played out of position down the right and has much better claims to a central defence position than either Sokratis or Luiz.
Not really his fault that he had a poor game today. I have no idea where he was supposed to be playing and I doubt he knows either. He is a defensive midfielder and yet at times was more forward than either Ceballos or Ozil.
Poor game from the young Frenchman. He did play in his correct position but offered very little the whole game. Time Joe Willock is given as many opportunities as Guendouzi.
What can I say? He has had just one quality game all season. I no longer believe the hype.
Started off bright but as usual with the German, he faded and for all his little tricks, what did he actually offer?
Started brightly but then just faded. It is hard to shine when you are starved of service. That alone tells you the sort of game Ceballos and Ozil had, I mean, they are supposed to be the creators.
Literally what I wrote about Lacazette could apply here so, ditto.
Average really, not the best game for him to show off his undoubted talent.
Strange sub to be honest but he did ok when brought on.
Gets a 5 as an average mark because he was not on long enough
Team right, subs and formation wrong. Says it all.
So, in conclusion, the keeper was the Arsenal man of the match. A sad reflection on Arsenal at home.
