Arsenal missed the chance to go top of the Premier League after being thrashed 4-0 by Southampton at St Mary’s Stadium this evening.
Here are my ratings:
Cech 5.5/10 | Not his usual commanding self but wasn’t particularly at fault for any of the goals.
Bellerin 6/10 | Got up and down the right and was always an option but his delivery was a little disappointing at times.
Koscielny 5.5/10 | A rare off day from the Frenchman. Couldn’t get to grips with the Saints front-line.
Mertesacker 4/10 | Long and his pace will give Mertesacker nightmare’s tonight. Really struggled all evening.
Monreal 5.5/10 | Another who was not up to his usual level.
Flamini 5.5/10 | Gave his all as usual but just couldn’t match-up to Wanyama and Clasie in the middle of the park.
Ramsey 6.5/10 | Worked his socks off and pulled off a couple of superb passes, but couldn’t have any real influence in the final third.
Walcott 6.5/10 | In and out of the match but was a threat when he did see the ball. Shame we couldn’t get him in the game more.
Özil 6/10 | Failed to continue his recent stunning form as he was marked out of the game.
Campbell 5/10 | Very quiet evening and failed to have any impact on the match.
Giroud 5/10 | Another who was hugely disappointing. Barely touched the ball during the second half.
Oxlade-Chamberlain 6/10 | Offered fresh legs but couldn’t help get us back in the game.
It was certainly a night to forget as although some of the decisions didn’t go our way, we played extremely poorly and didn’t deserve anything from the game. We need to put this performance behind us quickly and respond with three points against Bournemouth on Monday night.
