Arsenal 1 -3 Monaco Player Ratings by KJ
Ospina – 4
Shocking keeping tonight. Spilled numerous catches and conceded goals that should’ve been saved in my opinion, especially the first one.
Bellerin – 4
Completely out of his depth which is worrying. Hasn’t really kicked on at all after his good game against City. Seems to be too inexperienced and gets caught too central when defending.
Mertesacker – 2
Diabolical display. He was at fault for two of the goals and didn’t do anything captain-like. He definitely pulled off his Vincent Kompany impression (I assume that was what he was going for).
Koscielny – 4
Didn’t do anything to prevent Berbatov from dictating the tempo of the game, especially in the second half.
Gibbs – 3
Horrible night for him. Messed up so many offensive chances and was caught out numerous times. His inclusion over Monreal was a joke. Nacho would’ve provided much more offensive pressure which would’ve prevented Monaco from working their way out of their half so easily.
Coquelin – 4
Left us open quite a bit and didn’t stop Joao Moutinho at all which would’ve been his job. He was frankly schooled by the Portuguese international.
Cazorla – 4
Didn’t work at all as a box to box today. Didn’t make any penetrating runs after the first 5 mins of the game and was caught out with some suspect passing.
Welbeck – 4
Poor and came in far too much to collect the ball which meant we were always a man light when passed to the forward
Özil – 4
He started well but faded quickly with the team and just couldn’t get any passes together with team mates.
Alexis – 4
He took far too many touches in simple positions which killed our ability to catch Monaco out of shape. Very poor display by the Chilean.
Giroud – 2
As bad as Mertesacker today. Missed an open goal and just was poor in general throughout the game. Subbed off after an hour because of that display.
Walcott – 4
He came on and had chances to score but didn’t really take them at all.
Rosicky – 3
He came on and had very little effect.
Chamberlain – 2
He scored a great goal but was then at fault for the goal we conceded after that. If anything, his actions made the tie even more unfavourable for us.
