Player Ratings: Arsenal 2 – 1 Fulham

Arsenal move to the top of the league with a 2-1 victory over Fulham. Following are the Match Ratings for the Gunners:

LUKE – He pulled out two spectacular saves in each half. Kamara’s shot was the first one, while Gera volley was the second. Good game overall, and is improving as we progress (touch-wood)…8

SAGNA – Nothing out of the blue. Helped Nasri whenever possible, and performed his defensive duties well….7.5

SQ18- No nonsense defending from the french-man. He did his job and thats about it. On the attacking front, he also did win some crucial headers, most importantly the headed assist to Andrey in the 5th min !…6.5

KOSHER- N/A

CLICHY – His crossing was better yesterday, hope he keeps it up. Defended well against Davies, and made good forward runs also….7.5

SONG – Did not attck much, at most he went up to pass the ball further, performed his duties well overall..6

WILSHERE – Kept the midfield on the move. Distributed the ball well, and pressed well too. Nice game from the Englishman, especially with Fabio watching from the stands….7.5

NASRI– Need I say more about this transformer! Scored 2 magnificent goals, and was a constant threat to Fulham whenever he had possession. Hope, he continues the same way at OT….10

TR7– He defended sometimes and attacked as well. But overall below par for me. Showed a moment of brilliance when he played an exquisite cross to Song, and showed a moment of stupidity when he played the return-ball to MC29 having all license to shoot……5.5

ARSHAVIN – The Russian was subdued by the French-man, but did not play badly at all. He made dazzling runs from the centre of the half and unselfishly played the ball to Nasri for the first goal. He too was a constant threat to Fulham. Was being booed in the beginning, which I seriously found ridiculous!….8.5

CHAMAKH– The Moroccan had a quiet game. Dropped back deep to add an extra man to the midfield as usual, and kept the game moving in front. The guy in my opinion should shoot more often. And if possible, he should also brush up his heading as it looked a bit rusty yesterday. [ Something you would not here many people say would you ? ]…8.5

SUBSTITUTES:

DJOUROU – Won crucial headers in the back of the defense, and cleared the ball in a no nonsense manner. Somehow I feel the defense plays better with SQ18 and him rather than the former and Kosher…..7.5

RVP– Made a good decision to play Nasri through and not shoot. Not much to rate overall. He is working his way back to the top, so lets just wait…7

THEO– Made some dazzling runs from the right, but they were not exactly fruitful, to be honest. Should improve on his crossing, especially with Capello watching…6

CHEERS,

THE ARMOURY

    Luke:7
    Sagna:8 (Solid defending. Withut him i donno hw our defence culd be.)
    Squillachi: 6 NOt impressive last night.
    Koscielny: 5
    Clichy: 7.5 Gave an outlet on the left while attackin . Also solid in defending.
    Song: 6.5 Not good eough last night.
    Wilshire: 6 The KID is doing okay. But in Huge matches i don`t trust him yet, hes stil a kid.
    Rosicky: 6.5 He shuld start taking more responsibility. Lateral passes aren`t good enough.
    Arshavin: 8.5 Always gave the defence a hard time. His DIRECT play brings a different dimension in our attack.
    Nasri: 9.5 TWO Awesome Goals . MOTM.
    Chamak: 7 A target man , a threat in the Air. Should learn to have a Shot on Goal when opportunity presents.
    Djourou: 8 Pushing for Starting position.
    Walcott: 5.5 The played Crap. Vela shuld be given more opportunity in his place.
    Van Persie: 6.5 An assist. But not much contribution other than that.

    Luke:8 – Doing good, need to work on his distribution. Have you guys noticed almost every long ball goes to the opposition?
    Sagna: 8 – Solid as usual
    Squillachi: 7 – what was up with that head butt. He should trust his partner and be more aware
    Koscielny: 7 – He gets a lot of stick and he has made a couple of mistakes. I think he is a beast and would do well with TV. Imagine the combined stare, Beast^2
    Clichy: 7.5 Good game
    Song: 7 – Great defensive shift
    Wilshire: 6 – Quiet
    Rosicky: 6.5 – Industrious.
    Arshavin: 8.5 – He is awake, finally…. Keep it up
    Nasri: 10 MOTM.
    Chamak: 8 – Should take more shots
    Djourou: 8 – Great
    Walcott: 5.5 – so flaky, he’s on or off. I also think Vela should be given more chances. Theo’s mind just shuts off sometimes and just runs out of the pitch. He does give us another dimenssion with his pace, but would like to see more consistency
    Van Persie: 6.5 An assist. But not much contribution other than that.
    RVP 8 — Great to see him back, passionate, a winner and very creative. I liked that he did not go for the shot (the old VP would) and made that perfect touch for Nasri. Hope you stay fit!!!
