Hi dear Just Arsenal fans, I am really sorry for the delay in getting articles on but my last resort had rubbish internet. I am seriously hoping that it is a lot better in my new place. I am in one of the last undiscovered beaches in the Phillipines (Long beach, San Vicente, Palawan) and there is just one bar in ten miles of empty beach! Nightmare lol!
Anyway I have managed to watch the game on Arsenal.com and I can now share my ratings for the very poor, but efficient-ish performance where we actually got a win away from home. It wasn’t pretty and the fact is that we were quite lucky to get all the points, but at least we were not as bad as Chelsea. Bye bye Sarri….
Anyway here are the ratings, and I will get some more articles on as long as the internet works!
Leno – 7
Very little to do in the first half, but did his job well in the second…
Mustafi – 4.
I think we just have to accept he is not up to EPL standard, and he obviously has no confidence every time he plays. The sooner he is back on the bench the better as far as I am concerned…
Koscielny – 7.
I didn’t think he would come back so strongly. He was definitely our best defender…
Monreal – 6
Another one I’m glad to see back, but still needs to get up to speed. Our saviour in the second half..
Maitland-Niles – 8
A couple of mistakes but our busiest player. He is a future star for sure.
Torreira – 5
Lucas has gone right off the boil and I am worried that it is something more than the pace of our League. He looks like he needs a long rest considering how awesome he was at the start.
Guendouzi – 6
He has a lot of responsibilty at the moment but is coping well. Another brilliant buy but needs time and more support.
Kolasinac – 6
I’ve always said he’s a rubbish defender, but can be a real asset going forward.
Iwobi – 6
Scored a lucky goal and was trying hard, but please someone give him some shooting practice.
Lacazette – 7
Top performance with little support. Great to be in the right place for his goal.
Mkhitaryan – 6
Good first half but looked very tired in the second. Not bad for first game back…
Elneny – 5 Not very effective but I would say he was better than Torreira!
Suarez – Didn’t see much of him for a rating.
Willock – N/A.
