Where do we start with this mess? The Ratings

 Where do we start with this mess? Arsenal were okay in the first half but didn't look like scoring. Second half we started better and scored, but failed to kill the game off when we were comfortable and completely went to sh*te for the last 20 minutes.

Two wins in the last 8 league games. No wins in 2018. Consistently shocking defensively. Don't look like scoring. Two best players into the last six months of their contracts. A complete mess on and off the pitch. We're just getting worse and worse under Wenger and he needs to go.


Cech - 5. Came off his line rashly for the first goal and was beaten to the ball, and could've done better on the second.

Chambers - 6. Great block to deny Fraser in the first half. Played well generally but suspect on Bournemouth's equaliser.
Mustafi - 5. Okay first half, led the defence and was a threat attacking set pieces. Went to pot for the last 20 minutes.
Holding - 4. Looked terrified in possession. Poor on Bournemouth's winner, first he was too deep, then he lost Wilson and tried to play offside.

Bellerin - 6. Gets into good positions but final ball is so, so bad. Scored but suspect on Bournemouth's equaliser.
Xhaka - 5. Kept things ticking over but lost Ibe for the winner.
Wilshere - 7. Great first half, was quality on the ball. Less effective towards the end.
Maitland-Niles - 4. Two sloppy giveaways in the first half and was poor on Bournemouth's equaliser. Offered nothing going forward aside from hitting the crossbar.

Iwobi - 6. Better. Great ball for Bellerin's goal.
Lacazette - 4. Did he even have a shot today? Doesn't get any service and doesn't look interested.
Welbeck - 5. Looked dangerous in the first half. Should've scored. Did nothing in the second half.


Ramsey - 5. Looked rusty on his return from injury.
Walcott - 4. No impact at all. Literally just got caught offside.
