After yet another dismal display away from home, and I am afraid that Dan predicted that we would lose again. He even predicted the 1-0 away loss to Sheffield, so he considers himself to be a realist. So let’s look at Dan’s Leicester v Arsenal Player Ratings…..
Leno – 5
Kicking poor, at times miss-controlled ball to the point he was in danger of an own goal. He could have done better for their second, do you think?
Bellerin – 6
Gave away the ball a lot and seemed out of position and not helping Chambers. He was more comfortable going forward. Once he finds his match fitness he will do better in final third.
He is better in a 3 at the back. This formation allowed him to step out and support our attack with a couple of decent passes. He stood up well to the Foxes physicality.
Chambers – 8
Our best player by a mile. He was comfortable on the ball, but also knows when not to overplay. His crucial touch stopped a Vardy tap in. His reading of the game was very good…
Holding – 5
Sloppy in possession, although like Bellerin he deserves more time.
Kolasinac – 4
Seemingly chosen ahead of Tierney because Emery think he’s the better full back, yet he barely got forward. One of many that were guilty of giving the ball away in defence.
Torreira – 5
The Leicester midfield ran through him, with him only stopping them with fouls. He was sloppy on the ball and still not disciplined in the DM role.
Guendouzi- – 6
Lots of last-ditch blocks, throwing his body in the way and was prepared to scrap, but failed to provide service to front three.
Ozil – 5
When we had possession he was tidy but not enough service. He is never going to track back and win the ball himself. When he was able to pick a pass, our strikers were too wide. Just not enough options for the German.
Gains an extra mark for coming deep to win back the ball. He snatched at a great first half chance, but you can tell he wasn’t happy in this system.
Auba – 5
Had to track back to try and win the ball as zero service from midfield. When he did have it, he tried individual brilliance rather than any team play. Played way too wide on the left.
Why wait till we are 2-0 down to bring on 75 million signing? Like the rest, he had to come deep to try and get the ball himself.
Willock – 5
Came on at a time everyone’s heads had dropped…
So what do you think of Dan’s Leicester v Arsenal Player Ratings?
