[PLAYER RATINGS] West Ham 0-3 Arsenal
Szczesny – 6…His save in the 22nd minute was really crucial as a goal for West ham at that point could have changed the entire scenario of the match. Other than that nothing much bothered the Pole.
Eboue – 6…Here is why I am not giving this guy some more. The problem with him is that he can deal with balls in front of his man, but when the ball is played behind him, he is not that alert. Song and Theo had to cover up from him quite alot of times. However, he did do well for a makeshift RB.
Djourou – 5…He had some difficulty in coping with Carlton Cole, and his blunder in the 22nd min could have cost us to give away a clean sheet.
Kosher – 6…A silent fellow through-out the entire game, he just did his job – the mark of a true professional.
Clichy – 6.5…His crossing is really inconsistent, and yesterday was not in any way different. He defended well in most occasions, and cleared the ball when he had to. His support on the attacking front was also good. A nice game for the french-man.
Song – 7.5…He helped out Eboue, whenever required and at the same time attacked well. He is improving in every game [touch-wood] and lets all hope this continues.
Jack – 7.5…Almost got us a 4th in the 88th min. He distributed the ball well, won the ball back and pressed whenever he could. Kudos mate !
Cesc – 8… What can I say about Cesc. He kept the midfield going and pressed whenever required. His vision and final ball to pick up players is marvellous. Although he did not give any assists, he was one big reason for our victory.
Nasri – 8…He was the reason we got our first goal. He was the reason we could maintain our tempo, and lastly he is the reason Cesc can afford to relax for sometime. He pitched in to help the defenders once in a while, and also had Clichy back when required.
Theo – 8.5…This guy provided us with pace when we attacked. He earned us a penalty, and he provided an assist for RVP. Oh, lets not forget his goal, which if I may add he showed the exact instinct of a poacher. What he can do is to improve his crossing some more, and to try and keep his composure. In the 18th min, we could have got a goal when he was 1-v-1 with Green but he rushed his finish. But overall, he really played well and had a good game.
RVP – 10…I just hope he does not get injured [touch-wood]. . He provided an assist for Theo and was clinical in front of goal – his penalty was superb and so was his first finish. He even hit the post. Keep it up mate!
