So, Arsenal’s long unbeaten run finally limps to the end against a relegation-threatened Southampton, and the performance was even worse than our awful win against Huddersfield last week. Yes we had a makeshift defence but surely these highly-paid players can adapt to any position if needed?
Anyway, here are my ratings on a very unimpressive performance….
Hardly looked like trying to stop the first two goals, and was the third one down to him?
A real shame that he got injured. As if we could do with losing any more defenders!
Obviously not comfortable in the middle, and didn’t look half as keen as usual.
You have to feel sorry for him being rushed into action with such pressure. Awful performance but is unlikely to play in big games for a while once everyone else is back.
Definitely not a centre-back, and why did we have 5 at the back anyway?
Another one just returned from injury and rushed back. The whole defence was shambolic
Lots of energy but not his usual flair.
Our Man Of the Match, as is usual these days, but he can’t do everything on his own.
He has lost the confidence he had at the beginning of the season. Another very poor performance.
Somehow scored twice but had many more wild and wasted opportunities.
Didn’t have much service in first half. Improved a little in the second but it was just not happening for him.
Needs more game time to get backup to speed.
Another one returning from injury.. blah..blah..
Tried hard. Should have started the game.
