Arsenal consolidated their 100% win record in the Europa League Group Stages even though Mikel Arteta made wholesale changes to the starting line-up.
The boss was not happy with conceding two goals but the stand-in players and youngsters put in some excellent performances against the FAI Cup winners.
Here are my ratings….
Our new reserve keeper is hardly up to the quality of Emi Martinez, and this performance is hardly going to fill Arteta with confidence.
Good comeback game for Calum, and I’m sure he will only get better with more game time.
Didn’t have much to do and didn’t make much impact for a captain
Another one that needs games under his belt, but was the busiest of our defenders and played a solid game all the same.
He is looking like a very capable backup at the moment. I’d like to see himget arun of games too.
Poor Ainsley gets moved around the pitch on Arteta’s whim, but he must be getting close to run in first team soon.
Great goal and hopefully will be back in the first team on Sunday.
Nowhere near the quality of his last performance in the Europa, but was still bust in attacking moves.
Another great Europa performance from Joe and another goal, but can he carry that into the EPL?
Smith Rowe 8
Excellent performance from the youngster, and surely must get given some opportunities in the first team very soon.
Always looking hungry and deserved to get another goal. Maybe play this Sunday?
Played half an hour but couldn’t make much impact.
I can’t wait to see how this young man gets on against Premier League defences. A real live wire.
