It was a bad night for the Gunners against Sporting Lisbon in that it was a very boring 0-0 draw, and was ruined as a spectacle after Danny welbeck went off to hospital, and Lichtsteiner was withdrawn with a hamstring injury in the second half as well.
But there were some good performances as well as Sporting were given very few opportunities to win the game. And here are my ratings….
Had very little to do all game!
I guess these defensive injuries were the only way he would get a game, but hopefully someone will come in and buy him in January
A good warm up for the Greek after his injury but had very little to trouble him
You just can’t fault Holding at the moment. Looks totally settled into his role now
Energetic down the wing. Shame we’ve lost him to a hamstring injury as well..
Looked totally in control in the centre of the pitch. He is growing on Arsenal fans very quickly
Definitely not up to scratch at the mo. Must surely be back on the bench at the weekend
Smith Rowe 6
Tried to get involved but at least it was another new experience for the promising teenager
Him and Ramsey are looking like our weak points lately. Tried driving forward on occassion but needs more confidence
Another one that looked affected by Ramsey’s injury and his heart wasn’t quite in it..
Let’s give him Man Of The Match in what could his last game for the Gunners. I’m still hoping it’s not too serious but I’m not confident
Sporting crowded him out but could have wo the game if the Mathieu hadn’t cynically cut him down
Adequate comeback for the left-back. We need defensive reinforcements!
