Player Ratings – Swansea City 2 – Arsenal 1

Swansea-City-v-Arsenal-Premier-LeagueIt’s early November, we are 12 points behind Chelsea, just 4 wins out of 11 and a host of injuries to contend with. Glorious, isn’t it. Here’s how the Arsenal players rated in a terrible performance.

Wojciech Szczesny – 6/10

These days he’s not making those spectacular saves that he is capable of. Looking very ordinary

Calum Chambers – 4/10

Tormented all day long by Swansea Winger Montero. Not his best day.

Per Mertesacker – 5/10

Struggling without Koscielny. Not the Per of last season.

Nacho Monreal – 5.5/10

He didn’t do that bad against Bony but it’s clear that despite his best efforts, he is not the solution to our defensive woes.

Kieran Gibbs -5 /10

His foul on the Swansea player led to the free kick that resulted in the goal. I like Gibbs, but for me he doesn’t produce enough telling crosses or passes when he is in a good position and he is caught far up the pitch on too many occasions.

Mathieu Flamini – 7/10

Kept Sigurdsson in his pocket throughout the game. Substituted for Wilshere

Aaron Ramsey- 5/10

Last season he got an assist and a goal at the Liberty. This time around he was culpable for losing the ball high up the pitch that led to the first goal.

Santi Cazorla – 4/10

I don’t know why Wenger is still sticking with Cazorla. He isn’t scoring goals nor creating chances, his set piece deliveries are poor and he doesn’t defend. He is a good player but going through a very rough patch.

Alexis Sanchez – 7/10

Not his best game but still got a goal. You can’t expect him to carry the team every game.

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain – 6.5/10

Good game but too many bad decisions at critical stages.

Danny Welbeck – 6/10

Showed great composure while setting up Alexis for the goal, but missing too many chances at the moment.


Jack Wilshere – 5/10

Came, argued with the referee. Frustrated

Theo Walcott – 5/10

He looked rusty and that’s normal for a player who’s been out for so long

Yaya Sanogo – 4/10

Did you really expect him to score when he came on? I didn’t.

  1. Cazorla is a ball juggler. He is not going through a bad patch. If you ask the question-‘what is Cazorla on the pitch for?- there is no answer. What you see is what you get. There is no marking, no covering, no runs beyond- no line breaks- just a bare bedrock of link play that Championship players can manage. Our midfield is failing because of him and AW picks him game after game. Does AW ever look at the stats. The Prem has changed and is changing. You can’t have someone trundling about any more. Every midfielder now has to be able to graft. There is no room for passengers. It’s like watching a child on the pitch. Somebody should give him a pink balloon and a pointed hat with elastic so it’s easier to see farting about. Give us chance Arsene and be fair to the other players!

  2. Arsenal is an average team these days,with a below average coach,one can predict arsenal team list right from ur bed
