Cech - 7. Great save off Rodriguez early on. Spectator in the second half.

Koscielny - 7. dealt with everything
Mustafi - 6.5. lucky on the penalty claim. otherwise fine
Monreal - 8. plus 1 for the clearance

Bellerin - 7. Lots of energy up and down the right.
Xhaka - 6. Not the best first half but second half was better.
Elneny - 7. tons of work rate
Kolasinac - 7. a beast

Ramsey - 8. worked his socks off. always a threat. some sloppy moments
Lacazette - 8. Did what we bought him to do twice. some really nice touches
Alexis - 6. plus 1 for the free kick. too much showboating.

Not against your ratings but from my viewpoint I didn't give Ramsey an 8 as I thought he gave the ball away a bit too often nearer the end, and I felt that for all of his work rate and ground covering, Elneny was largely ineffective.

This wasn't the first time this season that Xhaka-Elneny hasn't worked. Xhaka becomes far less effective when Elneny is in all of his spaces trying to play 3/ 5 yard passes with his every touch. Something similar happened on the opening day against Leicester as well. Were he fit, Wilshere would've been a better option.

Monreal was head and shoulders our best player.

He's been among the top 3 performers almost every single time for almost 2 years

LOL no he hasn't. Its amusing how carried away people can get after one good game.

He does very some in for pace in some games and that's what ppl remember. His technical ability on the ball (pass weight /decision making not dribbling or first touch) is better than many of our forwards. And his positioning is also better than most of our defenders. He is one of our more consistent performers along side ppl like kos. It doesn't say a lot about our 11 but that is something you already know

Going to back up BootyDaddy here. I think people are forgetting that last season, prior to the three at the back switch, Monreal was horrific at left back. It was like watching pre-2014/15 Monreal again.

Yeah but it was down to no help on that side. He does have pbms against pacey wingers, but a lot is those pbms for the defense are due to an absolutely shambolic midfield.
Even if your watch the current games, the defense and the keeper are having to play out of their skins with last ditch tackles because even teams like west brom. Can walk through our midfield.
There's absolutely no pressure on the guy thsts picking out the pass/ cross.
Those pbms didn't get highlighted at chelsea cause they had to 2 in the middle of the park, one of them a slow cesc.
Those pbms will resurface against teams that press all again.

Monreal is about our standard these days.
Never be a regular starter for a top club.

His intelligence is above average and on par and even better than some of the top left backs in the world. But physically he lacks all those attributes that the top players have. Had he been a little taller / quicker, he would have been picked up by a top club.

Thsts generally a pattern with wenger. Players who are intelligent and beasts physically cost a lot of money.
So you either choose physicality with less technicality and vice versa and be akways goes for the latter.

His lack of peace will not be exposed as much on the left side of a 3 and he should have a good season this year

Monreal is an above average player with a world class attitude.
