Although we are never going to be happy with the final result, we certainly can’t complain about the performance of most of our Arsenal players, who really did look like a Top Four side for most of the game.
So let’s look at the player ratings and see if you agree or not…
Leno – 8
Stunning double save in the first half and dealt with most of Spurs attacks very well. Had no chance with the penalty
Mustafi – 5
He is being made the scapegoat but he wasn’t that bad. I didn’t even think he was so much at fault for the penalty. A harsh decision I think..
Sokratis – 8
Buy of the summer. Total no-nonsense defender.
Koscielny – 7
He actually looks like he is getting back to his best, despite all his problems. Kudos!
Monreal – 7
I’m glad he is also looking close to last season’s quality. Great player
Xhaka – 7
Another one that seems to have grown in the last couple of months as well. He will be getting less stick from the fans in future..
Guendouzi – 6
Sacrificed at half time, but surely it will take time to get used to playing games like this but did well anyway.
Mkhitaryan – 7
Looking like a fantastic swap for Sanchez at the moment. Has settled in very well and I have high hopes…
Ramsey – 7
Proves yet again why we should use him while we have him. I just wish he had taken the penalty…
Iwobi – 7
He is looking a lot more consistent lately and hopefully the arguments will stop now…
Lacazette – 6
Lively in the first half and to be honest I wish he had stayed on and left Aubz for next week…
Torreira – 6
Harsh sending off but looked back to his best for the short time he was on…
Aubameyang – 5
Obviously nervous, which will be explained in another post. Should have only come on if we were desperate…
Ozil – 5. Didn’t do much but should have started to be fair..
