[Player Ratings] WBA 0-1 Arsenal: Cazorla Continues Fine Form With MOTM Display

Arsenal ground out a 1-0 win against West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday with Danny Welbeck getting the only goal of the game. Here are my player ratings:

Arsenal produced a very professional display to grind out a 1-0 win against West Brom at the Hawthorns on Saturday afternoon with Danny Welbeck scoring the only goal of the game.

Here are my player ratings:

Martinez 6.5/10 | Another composed display. Didn’t have a lot to do in terms of shot-stopping but did well whenever called upon.

Chambers 7/10 | Made a crucial interception in the first half and did his bit to keep Albion at bay.

Mertesacker 7.5/10 | Looked far more comfortable with Koscielny alongside him. Made a superb block in the second half to deny Gardner.

Koscielny 7.5/10 | Great to have him back and he held the defence together. Hardly gave Berahino a sniff.

Monreal N/A | Forced off early with a foot injury. Hopefully it’s nothing serious.

Flamini 7/10 | A much-improved display from Flamini. Was more disciplined and held his position well.

Ramsey 6/10 | Another disappointing performance. Passing was largely poor and his selfish ‘shoot on sight’ attitude was on show again.

Welbeck 7.5/10 | Worked tirelessly all game, switching positions across the front line, and was rewarded with a fine headed goal.

Alexis 7.5/10 | Ran himself ragged once again and defended from the front. Dangerous at times but things just didn’t go his way.

Cazorla 8/10 | Superb work to assist the opening goal for Welbeck with a lovely cross and put in his second MOTM display in a row. Relishing playing more centrally in recent games.

Giroud 7/10 | His hold-up play has certainly been missed and his physical presence was important today. Showed some good touches but tired late on.

Subs:

Gibbs 7/10 | Added more pace down the left and was solid at the back. Looked to have picked up a knock though.

Oxlade-Chamberlain 6/10 | Added some energy during the last 10 minutes.

So an important three points to end a run of back-to-back losses in the league and we’re now back above Man Utd – although they are leading Hull 1-0 at the time of writing. Let’s hope the injuries aren’t anything serious as Southampton are up next on Wednesday and we need to close the gap on them.
