[Player Ratings] Arsenal 2-3 Olympicos: Ospina Gaff Proves Costly
It was a night to forget at the Emirates as Arsenal crashed to a 3-2 defeat to Olympiacos to leave our Champions League hopes in tatters. Here are my ratings:
It was another night to forget at the Emirates as Arsenal crashed to a shocking 3-2 defeat to Olympiacos to leave our Champions League hopes in tatters.
Here are my ratings:
Ospina 3/10 | Huge error when he dropped a corner over the line for 1-2. If that doesn’t happen, I’m almost sure we win the game. God knows why Arsene ‘rested’ Cech. It cost us badly.
Bellerin 5.5/10 | Was dangerous going forward but a little suspect at the back.
Koscielny 6/10 | Was having a decent game before being forced off with a hamstring injury.
Gabriel 6/10 | A beast at times but still part of a defence that shipped three goals. The chemistry at the back wasn’t right.
Gibbs 5/10 | Caught out of position for the crucial third goal. Still seems to wander too much at the back.
Coquelin 6/10 | Was playing well but was sacrificed early in the second half as we needed goals.
Cazorla 5.5/10 | Not his night. Saw a goal-bound effort cleared off the line and his incisive passing was missing at times.
Oxlade-Chamberlain 6/10 | Lively when on the ball but final ball is still lacking.
Alexis 8/10 | Easily our best player. Worked his nuts off, scored our second and set-up the first for Walcott.
Ozil 5/10 | Went missing when we needed him to step-up. A frustrating night for the German.
Walcott 7.5/10 | Another goal and he also set-up Sanchez with a fine cross. Movement continues to impress.
Mertesacker 5/10 | Didn’t look ready to come on as he was asleep for the third goal.
Ramsey 6/10 | We certainly had more drive from midfield when he came on but he couldn’t help drag us back in to the game.
