Arsenal gave Southampton a masterclass lesson at St Mary’s yesterday, and considering that a lot of our players were regarded as fringe players or returning crocks only makes it even more impressive. But how did you rate the individual performances?
David Ospina 8
Didn’t have much to do but did it well….
Hector Bellerin 8
Not called on much in defence but he loves bombing down the wing….
Shkodran Mustafi 8
This man is definitely our lucky charm, and quite a good defender too…
Rob Holding 8
Easy game for the youngster. Didb’t really put a foot wrong…
Kieran Gibbs 8
Our defensive supersub puts in another top performance, seems to have matured with age…
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain 10
Fully deserves a 10 and a Man Of The Match performance. Involved in everything and an incredibly accurate right foot. Definitely should be challenging Ramsey in the playmaker role.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles 8
Even the Ox thought he was brilliant. Definitely a first-teamer in the future
Theo Walcott 9
How much better is Theo this year? Brilliant running, deserved the hat-trick. Great return
Jeff Reine-Adelaide 8
Another guaranteed star of the future. While the squad stays injury free Wenger is going to have lots of selection headaches…
Brilliant lay off for the first Welbeck goal. Just a shame he failed to make it 6-0 at the end, but good contribution otherwise
Danny Welbeck 9
Wow how many strikers does Wenger have to choose from now? Two goals, an assist, great control in the box, and looked very lively indeed…
I guess Wenger brought him on to try and keep him happy, and he quickly gave a perfect assist in a crowded box. We must keep him fit all season!
Alex Iwobi N/R
I think this is definitely the biggest ratings that I can ever remember giving, but let’s be honest, Arsenal were awesome from beginning to end!
