German media hands Arsenal stars harsh ratings after draw against Bayern Munich

Arsenal’s stars received poor ratings for their performance in the game against Bayern Munich last night, a fixture that Gooners had high expectations for given the team’s fine form in 2024.

The Gunners aimed to make a statement with their performance against the formidable German side, with aspirations of reaching the Champions League semi-final. However, Bayern’s status as one of the favourites to win the competition presented a tough challenge for Mikel Arteta’s side.

Under the weight of expectation, Arsenal seemingly succumbed to pressure and delivered an error-strewn performance, characterised by silly mistakes.

Notably, defenders William Saliba and Gabriel Magalhaes failed to impress, with both receiving low ratings from Sports Bild, a German publication known for its player ratings ranging from 1 to 6, with 6 being the worst.

In particular, Saliba and Magalhaes were rated 5 each, indicating a subpar performance. Additionally, goalkeeper Raya received a rating of 3, while Ben White was given a 4. Jakub Kiwior, meanwhile, earned a 3.

Moving forward, midfielders Jorginho, Declan Rice, and Martin Odegaard received ratings of 4, 3, and 2 respectively.

In the attacking department, Bukayo Saka was rated a two, while Gabriel Martinelli and Kai Havertz both received ratings of 4 each, reflecting a disappointing collective performance from the Arsenal squad.
