Pointless Arsenal Player Ratings


By Matty Sadler
March 1 2018

In our defence we at least attempted to respond today. Not that it's saying much, we were better than on Sunday. We looked good for the first 10 minutes of the second half, but quickly found ourselves 3-0 down after 35 minutes, and looked good for the first 10 minutes of the second half, but missed our big opportunity from the penalty spot. Unfortunately City are simply better than us in every area

No subs, no tactical changes, given up? The players have turned, most of the fans have turned and most of the board have turned. The end of Wenger is near.

Seems pointless doing this now but...

... here are the ratings

Cech - 5. Twice prevented Aguero from making it 4-0 with good saves, but could've done better with City's first.

Bellerin - 3. Genuinely never seen him get the better of Sane. Poor.
Mustafi - 4. Improvement on Sunday but still not nowhere near good enough.
Koscielny - 4. Sluggish, poor positioning. Seen nothing recently to suggest he isn't finished at the top level.
Kolasinac - 2. Slow, unfit, absolutely no quality or finesse in possession.

Xhaka - 5. Passing okay. Better than on Sunday but again, still not good enough.
Ramsey - 6. Only positive, particularly in the first half. Playing for a move away?

Mkhitaryan - 5. Started well but drifted out of the game.
Ozil - 3. If I was a cynic I'd say he's been poor since he signed his new deal, but I'm not a cynic... Anonymous today.
Welbeck - 4. Worked hard and pressed high but got nothing out of Kompany.

Aubameyang - 3. Hardly had a touch and then his penalty was poor. The same thing that happened with Lacazette has happened with Aubameyang, which makes you question whether its them or the way we play.
