How we rated the Gunners side in this evening’s victory over the Magpies at the Emirates Stadium.
Arsenal managed to build on their midweek thrashing of Galatasaray in the Champions League this evening with a relatively convincing 4-1 win over Newcastle United at the Emirates Stadium. This is how we rated the Gunners side:
GK) Wojciech Szczesny 7 – Had a solid return to Premier League action – could do little with the goal and made one fine save in the first half.
RB) Hector Bellerin 8 – The young Spaniard really came to the fore this evening, scampering down the right flank to great effect and providing a fine assist for the third.
CB) Mathieu Debuchy 7 – The transition to centre back was relatively comfortable for Debuchy, although Newcastle didn’t test him enough.
