Classy, classy Champions League performances from the Gunners…
Arsenal Player Ratings:
- 01 Szczesny – 7
Ultra solid performance from the stylish Pole.
- 03 Sagna – 6
Didn’t offer very much going forward, and had a comically bad moment with an awful cross in the second half.
- 17 Monreal – 6
Solid performance from the Spaniard.
- 20 Flamini – 7
Ticked over play in the first half especially, and provided a solid platform from which Arsenal’s more attacking players could provide.
- 04 Mertesacker – 7
Another cultured, dominant performance from the giant German.
- 06 Koscielny – 6
Solid, professional performance, but in truth – didn’t have too much to do.
- 10 Wilshere (Walcott – 75′ ) 9 & n/a
Excellent performance from Wilshere. In fact, probably his best of the season. The Englishman scored very early on with a lovely curling effort, and then controlled the game in the middle with his Welsh partner Aaron Ramsey. Later on, he added another, before leaving the pitch to a standing ovation.
- 16 Ramsey – 9
Stunning, as per usual. Regularly carved open the French defence with delightful scooped passes.
- 12 Giroud – 8
Quickly becoming the iconic spearhead of this side, even when Giroud doesn’t score he contributes.
- 11 Özil – 7
The German missed a penalty with a tame effort in the first half, but did improve from that point onwards.
- 07 Rosicky (Cazorla – 75′ ) 6 & n.a
Rosicky is often the unsung member of the Arsenal mdifield,but this evening, he was outshone by his teammates. Gave the ball away regularly.
