West Ham v Arsenal Player Ratings
Now that I have recovered enough from the disappointment of Arsenal only managing to take a point from West Ham after being in cruise control I reckon I can rate the Arsenal players without dishing out some zeroes. And there were some good performances from the likes of Koscielny, Elneny, Alexis and co. Iwobi provided two assists but also gave the ball away at key points so Mesut Ozil gets the nod with a well taken opening goal to cap a good game from the German.
Ospina 6 – Can’t really blame him for goals but a more commanding presence might have helped.
Bellerin 6 – Did okay especially going forward.
Gabriel 5.5 – Let his all-round game down with a few lapses that really hurt us.
Koscielny 7 – Scored another big goal and stood up better than his fellow defenders.
Monreal 4 – Bit of a shocker from the Spaniard. Went missing.
Coquelin 6 – Solid and aggressive, sacrificed as we searched for goals.
Elneny 7 – Another impressive display but also hooked for attacking threat.
Iwobi 7.5 – Two fantastic assists spoiled a bit by some sloppy passing in key areas.
Ozil 8 – Brilliant 1st half and goal, struggled with the Hammers on top, came back well and helped our equaliser.
Alexis 7 – Well taken goal and bustling performance.
Welbeck 6.5 – Worked hard and stretched the defence without a major influence on game.
Ramsey 6 – Looked pretty sharp and made things happen.
Giroud 6 – Good impact and key part in Koscielny goal.
Walcott 5 – No impact at all.
