An uninspiring game at the Emirates ended in a 0-0 draw as Arsenal and Manchester United cancelled each other out on Wednesday night.
Here are the Football-Talk ratings:
Did well to keep Van Persie out in the first minute and pulled off a stunning one handed save to prevent his former team-mate grabbing a late winner.
Decent shift from the dependable Frenchman and kept the threat of Mata quiet.
Back in the team after a three-week absence and was impressive in defence and attack.
Back to his old self after a rare blip on Saturday. Kept van Persie quiet.
Made a couple of excellent tackles and almost grabbed a goal but his header was cleared off the line.
Well off the pace. He lost possession on numerous occasions and lost out in the midfield battle.
Got away with an early error after losing possession on the edge of his box but recovered well to control the midfield, making an impressive 5 tackles and 6 interceptions.
Failed to create a lot in the final third but he always puts a shift in for the team.
Almost got on the score-sheet but saw his two efforts well saved by De Gea.
A much-improved display from the German and he was always looking to make things happen.
Missed a great early chance to get on the score-sheet but glanced a header wide. He looked jaded at times and a little off the pace. Clearly in need of a break.
Oxlade-Chamberlain – 5/10 – Didn’t really make an impact.
De Gea 7.5/10
Made a couple of great saves to deny Cazorla late on.
Was doing well until he was forced off at half time after landing awkwardly on his head/neck.
Solid display and showed his versatility when he was forced to switch to right back in the second half.
Back to his best form as he kept the hosts at bay with countless clearances and headers. Was lucky not to give away a penalty though for a shove on Giroud.
Coped reasonably well with the threat of Rosicky and Sagna but could have got himself forward more.
Looked dangerous early on but his threat faded during the second half. Was on hand to head Koscielny’s effort off the line.
Did well to protect the back-four and keep the Gunners attacking threat relatively quiet.
Like Carrick, Cleverley was unadventurous but did his job to shield the defence and keep it simple.
Below par display from the Spaniard. Didn’t really offer much of a threat.
Worked hard for the team in tracking back and helping out in midfield.
Van Persie 6/10
Saw little of the ball and should have opened the scoring in the first minute. Was unlucky not to grab a late winner when Szczesny saved well.
Ferdinand – 6.5/10 – Back in the team after a lengthy spell out and slotted in well.
Januzaj – 6/10 – Couldn’t offer any creative spark.
Young – N/A –
