Arsenal eased past Marseille 2-0 at the Emirates on Tuesday night to inch closer to securing qualification to the knockout stages of the Champions League.
Here are my ratings from the game:
Had very little to do until he pulled off two excellent saves to deny Thuavin late on to ensure another clean sheet.
Solid game from the Frenchman. Did everything asked of him and got forward but his delivery was a little below par.
The Spaniard has been forced to play second fiddle to Kieran Gibbs but slotted in seamlessly at left-back and showed he’s a more than able deputy. Great display. Excellent clearance off the line when it was still 1-0.
He’ll have harder games ahead but the German still marshalled the awkward threat of Gignac well.
Like his defensive partner, Kos had a pretty comfortable evening but was still rock solid when called upon.
Quietly went about his business in the middle of the park and managed to get through an entire game without picking up a yellow card!
The Welshman was back to his all-action best. He made countless tackles and was up and down the pitch all night long. He will be disappointed he didn’t finish off a simple chance in the first half, but otherwise excellent and won the penalty with a nice bit of skill.
Arguably Wilshere’s best display of the season. He was a constant threat, drifting in from the right side and opened the scoring with a stunning goal. Was on hand to score the second, getting two goals in a game for the first time in his career. Getting back to his best.
A mixed evening for the German. He looked to be in first gear until his poor penalty was saved, then he seemed to perk up a bit. Set up Wilshere for the second goal and went close a couple of times himself. Still feel there is a lot more to come from him.
Decent shift from the Czech international. His driving runs added pace to some of our lackluster attacks but he faded a little after the break before he was subbed.
A quieter game compared to his outing against Southampton but he was still a handful for the opposition defence.
Walcott 6/10 – Missed a good late chance to get himself a goal.
Cazorla 6/10 – Showed some nice touches and used the ball well.
Arteta N/A – On too late.
