Arsenal Break Club Record at Leicester Player Ratings
By Matty Sadler
May 9 2018
Really exciting, open, end to end game with a lot of chances. Unfortunately we aren't great, particularly defensively, and allowed Leicester to score some pretty cheap goals We currently have an identical away record to relegated West Brom. Only team in Europe's top five leagues and England's top four leagues not to win an away point in 2018. At the domestic level Jamie Vardy's second-half penalty was the 50th goal conceded by the Gunners in league play and have conceded more goals in 2017-18 than any other season in the club's Premier League history.
Cech - 7. Conceded three but don't think he could've done any more for any of them. Made some good saves.
Maitland-Niles - 6. Shaky at times in the first half, second half was better. Play in the build up to Aubameyang's goal was superb. Some of his passing in our defensive third was worrying.
Holding - 5. Tough time against Leicester's live wire forwards.
Mavropanos - 3. Failed to clear in the build up to Leicester's opener and was sent off a minute later. Hopefully he'll learn his lesson.
Kolasinac - 6. Looked a bit more like the Kolasinac we saw at the start of the season going forward.
Xhaka - 6. Okay despite a big ask with us being a man down. Passed well, including ball out to the right for our equaliser.
Ramsey - 5. First half was poor. Improved in the second half but wasn't his night.
Mkhitaryan - 5. Mixed bag. Lots of moments where he looked like making something happen, but also some poor/ heavy passes. Gave away the penalty.
Iwobi - 5. Some good link-up but final play was lacking.
Welbeck - 5. Sacrificed early.
Aubameyang - 7. Lively up front. Scored.
Mustafi - 6. Okay for the most part, including a goal line clearance in the second half, but played a part in Leicester winning their penalty.
Nketiah - N/A. Not on long.
