Arsenal beat Coventry 4-0 on Friday night to ease into the fifth round of the FA Cup. Lukas Podolski hit a first half brace before Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla scored late efforts to put a bit of gloss on the scoreline.
Here are my ratings from the game:
Made a great save when it was 1-0 before being called into action on a couple of occasions in the second half including a vital save to keep it at 2-0.
His crossing was excellent when he found space but decision making was poor at times as he kept running into trouble instead of giving the simple ball.
Another calm and composed display from the German. Won the ball back in the middle of the park for the opener.
Made a couple of decent tackles but will face much sterner tests than this.
Was always keep to kept forward and got his rewards when he set up the third for Giroud after some lovely work with Cazorla.
Neat and tidy in midfield. A few lovely pieces of inter-play but no real moments of magic.
A few attempted long passes went astray and he looked a little rusty, which is understandable as it’s his first start in over five months.
Took the corner for second but was in and out the game. We saw some moments of skill but he went missing at times.
Superbly cool finish for the first and on hand to head home the second. Devastating finisher.
Great assist for the opener and was a threat all night. So comfortable on the ball.
Not up to the pace of the game at all and put a couple of shots well off target.
Cazorla 7.5/10 – Made a great impact from the bench and capped it off with a well taken goal.
Zelalem 7/10 – Can he really be 16?! An assured display for one so young. A real star for the future.
Giroud 7.5/10 – Came on and sealed the game with a low drive for the third.
