Arsene Wenger may only want to talk about referees after any game nowadays, but in fact Arsenal simply cannot win a game anyway and if Alvaro Morata had taken any of his chances Chelsea would have won this game in canter. But other than that the game was very attacking from both sides and exciting to watch and in the end a draw was a fair result for me.
So here are my ratings…
Petr Cech – 7
A great game for Petr Cech and could never have stopped the goal, and we won’t mention penalties ever again!
Calum Chambers – 4
Chambers is still finding his feet but he had little chance to impress against Chelsea’s talented front line
Shkodran Mustafi – 5
Helped out well in attack at times, but his defending wasn’t much better than Chambers
Rob Holding – 6
Not too bad. Seems to have regained his confidence, but it was still a rough night
Hector Bellerin – 6
Had a hard task in controlling Eden Hazard and Co. The penalty will be argued about for ever but he redeemed himself with a very surprising last-minute equalizer
Granit Xhaka – 6
Slowly returning to form and this was another bright night for the Swiss midfielder
Jack Wilshere – 8
Jack is certainly proving his fitness and he was made to play in tough London derbies. Got involved a lot as usual.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles – 7
He has settled impressively into being a regular very well and how come no one is talking about him being picked for England yet?
Mesut Ozil – 8
Considering he was injured last week he came back with another excellent performance. Sign Da Ting!
Alexis Sanchez – 7
Nearly scored a couple of times and tried to penetrate but Courtois and his defenders allowed Alexis very little space
Alexandre Lacazette – 6
Everyone’s talking about Morata’s misses but I only remember Laca testing Courtois once. He was watched closely by the Chelsea defence
Subs – Nothing worth mentioning
