Gunners romp to 3-0 away win…
Here’s how we rated the Arsenal players today:
Manager: Arsene Wenger: 8/10
Was brave enough to select a very attacking team, including Ramsey, Ozil, Podolski and Cazorla, and it handsomely paid off.
GK) Wojciech Szczesny – 6/10
Enjoyed a fairly quiet afternoon at the KC Stadium, but did pull off a smart stop from Nikica Jelavic in the first-half.
DR) Bacary Sagna – 6/10
Didn’t make the surging runs up the right flank he’s so well known for, but was very strong defensively.
DC) Per Mertesacker – 6/10
Was actually caused a lot of problems by Jelavic, and was clumsy in possession on occasions.
DC) Laurent Koscielny – 7/10
The French centre-half was very good with the ball at his feet, and made a number of important interceptions, before playing the ball simply into midfield.
DL) Nacho Monreal – 6/10
Hardly a stand out performance by the Spaniard, but he did everything expected of him with minimal fuss.
