[Player Ratings] Hull 1-3 Arsenal: Ozil Orchestrates Superb Gunners Performace

By on May 5, 2015

Arsenal gave their hopes of finishing second a major boost with an impressive 3-1 victory over Hull City at the KC Stadium last night.

Alexis Sanchez bagged a  double while Aaron Ramsey was also on the score-sheet as the Gunners took a 3-0 lead into the break. Hull grabbed a consolation in the second half but Arsenal eased to a 3-1 win to move level on points with Man City.

Here are my ratings from the game:

Ospina  6/10 | Couldn’t get near the Quinn header but was otherwise a virtual by-stander. Not his busiest night of the season.

Bellerin   7/10 | Another solid shift from the Spanish youngster. Keen to get forward and help out in attack and was comfortable in defence.

Mertesacker  7/10 | Should perhaps have done better for their goal but otherwise a comfortable nights work.

Koscielny  7.5/10 | Kept Aluko and N’Doye quiet all game long. Showed great composure at times to get out of a sticky situation.

Monreal    6.5/10 | The goal came from down his side as he failed to cut out the cross. Didn’t get forward as much as usual either.

Coquelin   7.5/10 | Broke up play, kept things simple and did the dirty work. Another very good performance, although his long-range passing was a little off at times.

Cazorla  8/10 | Stunning pass set-up the Ramsey goal and he was really pulling the strings from midfield. Great display.

Ramsey  8/10 | Started on the right again but came inside to get more involved and it paid off with a goal and an assist.

Ozil  8.5/10 | Sensational. Some of his touches and flicks were mesmerising. Was involved in everything and orchestrated a superb attacking display from Arsenal. Those who still doubt him after this kind of performances need to follow another sport.

Alexis  8.5/10 | Another double for the Chilean in what’s been an excellent debut season. Fortunate with the free-kick but his run and composure for the second was world class.

Giroud  6.5/10 | A frustrating night for the big Frenchman. Was kept under wraps by Dawson and co. for much of the game but by keeping the centre-backs busy, he allowed space for others to exploit.

Subs:

Wilshere 7.5/10 | Impressive cameo from the fit-again Wilshere. We saw a couple of his trademark runs and he looked sharp. Almost scored too but saw his shot blocked by an arm on the line.

Walcott N/A

Arsenal are now level on points with Man City with a game in hand so are in excellent position to finish as runners-up to Chelsea. If we keep playing like we did against Hull, we have a great chance.
