[PLAYER RATINGS] Arsenal 1-0 Man Utd: How The Gunners Got On
Pride restored, and job well done. Some may retrospect on ‘If we had performed in the last few matches’, but to hell with that. Lets get down to whats important. We won, they lost, and we deserved it more. Arsenal 1-0 Manchester United.
Now to the Ratings…
Szczesny– Was really good in goal and learnt his lesson from Spurs. Quite hysterical, the manner in which he was playing around with Owen in the final minutes….8
Sagna – Arsenal ‘s joint player of the season for me. No nonsense defending and some great crosses. Got one on his thigh but did not cry like that Alves’ dog….9
DJ (subbed off) – Got out of some tight situations. Good defending, hope he is not out for the rest of the season…8
Kosher – Great defending and he commanded his zone confidently. He did make error that could have cost us when he half-heartedly tackled Rooney, leaving the back exposed. 7
Clichy – Great heading off the ball away every time is was crossed towards Valencia. But he gave the ball away too many times, though he gave some good lobbed passes to RVP…7
Song– Great game. He was everywhere, did not make stupid tackles & tamed the ‘Golden boy of Manchester’…8
Jack – Not one of his best games yet highly effective. He put in his shift as usual, and it was a game of 2 halves for him. He needs to work on his shooting. He was the reason Song could get caught out a few times. Keeps running and has great common sense while playing…7.5 ( loved it when he powered his way from Shrek causing him to get booked which was in all honesty not a booking.)
Ramsey– Gift from above. Great distribution, was the only one changing wings. Defended really well. And of course a great goal. Great positioning !…9
Walcott-Decent game as he put some great crosses in from nowhere.-“Most notably the Vidic Handball.” He did track back, however takes too long on the ball and has a bad first touch…7
RVP– Although a quiet game from the Dutchman, yet claimed one assist. Could have had many more. Should have got on the end of some of Walcott’s crosses…7
Nasri– Another quiet game for the Frenchman as he looked burned out…6
Arshavin-Good game from the Russian who was the only calm Arsenal player trying to keep the ball rather than play it forward. Created some good counter attacks for us and got us a free kick. But most of all put in some great tackles at either end and tracked back well Looking forward to him starting in the coming weeks…8
Eboue– No silly mistakes. Was anonymous but the attacks from the right were limited after he was brought on. N/A
SQ18– Slow but his experience did help… 6.5
PS: NEMANJA VIDIC THOUGH A FANTASTIC DEFENDER IS A DISGUSTING DIRTY LITTLE C**T.
