[PLAYER RATINGS] Bolton 2-1 Arsenal
After the Gunners’ last minute defeat to Bolton which effectively ended any chances of winning the title, here are my ratings…. please comment if you agree or disagree.
Sczcesny– 8.0- Another excellent performance yet again by the young Polish keeper, who has been one of the few bright spots for the Gunners this season. Made an excellent saves on Kevin Davies from the penalty spot and other top-class saves from Elmander and Sturridge…. didn’t deserve to be on the losing side.
Sagna– 6- Had an alright game, especially defensively, but attacking-wise, he was wasteful and didn’t do much as his crosses were wayward to say the least.
Koscielny and Djourou-4- Disastrous game from the center backs, Sturridge tore them apart today time and time again, both goals came from set pieces which they should’ve dealt better with…. not a good game at all, Wenger seriously needs to buy a top-class defender.
Clichy-5- Not a good game from the French left-back, he’s becoming a liability to the team. He was given a hard time by Bolton, especially by Sturridge and Chung Young Lee, and he was awful attacking wise with his crosses way off the mark. I believe Wenger needs to reconsider giving him a new contract.
Song-5- The big Cameroonian didn’t have much influence at all in my opinion and was rightly substituted in the second half.
Wilshere-6- The talented Wilshere had a great start to the game, but slowly faded away… this doesn’t mean he had a poor game, but not a good one by his standards…. still, like Sczcesny, one of the few bright spots this season.
Fabregas-6.5- The skipper didn’t stamp his authority as he would’ve loved to and like he usually does, but he was still dangerous with a shot hitting the post, and providing the assist for Van Persie.
Nasri– 4.5- This was a debatable one, as I’m probably harsh on Nasri, who’s been our best player this season. He didn’t have a poor game, but he had three glorious chances to win the game for the Gunners and he blew them shockingly…. which unfortunately cost the Gunners dearly.
Walcott-5.5- Just like Wilshere, started the game brightly, but then slowly faded away. He didn’t worry Robinson as much as he would’ve liked to.
Van Persie-6.5- Not a great game for the Dutchman, but he was one of the best players for the Gunners today, took his goal well and gave it his all. Showed his frustrations, when he argued with Matt Taylor after the match.
Chamakh– 5.5- The big Moroccan didn’t exactly do much, but I believe he could’ve done better with the excellent pass Van Persie provided for him, when he tried to head it down to Nasri…. and it wasn’t the best of layoffs.
Arshavin– 6- The little Russian ran his socks off ever since he stepped on the pitch, he did everything he can to give Arsenal the win.
