Arsenal had all the possession but zero penetration other than through the magic feet on Lucas Torreira, but three points is three points. We hardly reached the heights of the last week but we have earned a well deserved rest after 7 points in 8 days….
Here are my ratings:
An easy day for Leno. Didn’t have one shot on target to deal with but made no obvious errors
Good aggressive game in an unfamiliar position. I like his grit. Was taken off for tactical reasons at half-time.
Becoming more consistent, but unlucky to get a suspension and an injury in the same game. He should be okay though….
The Greek has become our leader at the back. A true old style defender. Shame he’s suspended for Southampton as well.
Was hemmed in by the big Huddersfield grapplers and was not as effective as usual.
Very creative in the middle with some great passing. Very creative in the diving department as well!
Another one booked for diving, I wonder what training was like this week? Couldn’t create much in a very crowded midfield.
Definitely MOTM performance. He rarely puts a foot wrong in midfield, and what a goal! What a signing. He could be the new Frank Lampard. He was our only player to get any shots on target!
Another that couldn’t get much room, but he was trying at least.
PEA didn’t have his magic boots on and not one of his 4 shots hit the target, but a great assist for our new centre-forward Lucas Torreira!
It’s not good when both our strikers are having an off day, but at least he got it in the back of the net, but it was just one of those days but that may have changed in the second half but he wasn’t on the pitch.
Not one of his good days.
Or his. Although he did try shooting a couple of times.
A soft introduction to start gaining match fitness.
