[PLAYER RATINGS] Arsenal 2-1 Huddersfield
Almunia- A brilliant and composed performance from him taking into consideration that he had a bunch of loonies as Centre Backs and the fact that he is coming back after a long time. Made a fine save in the second half and couldn’t be blamed for the goal we conceded. Showed good presence in the box as well and looked more confident. 8
Gibbs- Poor overall .Out of place too many times. Was nowhere in sight made Hunt made his Dazzling run. 4
Kosher- No presence in the box and couldn’t handle the physicality of the Terriers. 5
Squillaci- Got sent off in the first half after a cynical foul on Hunt. 2
Eboue- the only one in the defence who showed up today.made some good runs and crosses .However seems to always mess up in the final third. 6
Denilson- Frustrating throughout the game. the terriers were treating him like a cat. Miss passing,getting bullied and no creativity dominated his game today. 4
Arshavin- Improving hisform.Faded in some phases of the game but looked our most creative and dangerous player out there. Made a fantastic defensive tackle to deny the terriers a certain goal.Just shows the commitments levels are increasing. 7.5
Nasri- Pulled his hammy.Subbed for Rosicky.Lets just hope he is fit as soon as possible.
Diaby- Nothing productive in the game.Will take time because he is just back from injury. Off for Cesc. 5
Chamakh- Assisted Bendtner for our first goal .May have handled the ball while controlling it though we have seen similiar cases pardonable. Taken off after the first half for Song to cover for Squillaci. 6
Bendtner- scored the first goal which was a bit fortuitous as their was a clear deflection off the defender.Missed sitters as usual but improved after Cesc was brought on. Won the penalty. 7
Rosicky- On for Nasri.great on the ball and was continously fouled. Gave a brilliant throughball to Arshavin which he failed to convert. a decent performance but needs to step it up for a starting place. 6
Cesc- Changed the game for the gunners. Gave us that spine we lacked throughout the game.Truly a Captain’s performance.Scored the winner by the converting the pen and played a massive role in getting it. 8
Song- On for Squillaci to cover the defence. Didnt perform well aerially but he is not a centre back hence the alibi. 5
