Just got back from Milan and I think it was probably the first game I've enjoyed watching the Arsenal all year.
Atmosphere was electric and make no mistake, any match there is a big game.


Ospina: 7 - couple of hairy moments but did well largely. Loved him coming off his line to sweep up.
Chambers - 7 Solid game, got forward well and had a really good effort saved.
Koscielny - 8 Thought he was excellent. He was barking out orders and organising the defence well for what ended up being a lot of crosses and corners to deal with.
Mustafi 7 - Much much better from him. However, there was a chance late on where they went though and he was woefully out of position.
Kolasinac - 7 - Though he was solid as well, Forced a lot of the crosses to come from deeper than they would have liked.
Xhaka - 7 - Solid, strong and stayed in poison well. Would have been higher if he hadn't decided to shoot form the middle of nowhere when we were trying to see out the game.
Ramsey - 8 - Big game from him. Work rate was excellent and led from the front. He covered so much ground
Wilshere - 8 - Again what energy levels, tracked back, tackled and rarely misplaced passes. His movement was brilliant.
Mkhitarayan - 8 - First half in particular was brilliant, energy, vision, pace and he looked very bit a player wanting to score. Reminded me of the likes of Hleb, Rosicky in the way he played. More of this please!
Ozil - 8 - there when it counted. Very quietly went about his business and a hand in both goals and numerous chances first half. Tired towards the end.
Welbeck - 7 - should have scored at least one. Just not a striker but led the line well and allowed our midfield to get into attacking positions with his movement.


Maitland Niles - 8 - I thought he slotted in perfectly. Don't think he was beaten once nor did he give the ball away. Great first touch to get out of trouble and great strength.
Eleneny- 7 - Again slotted in well completely out of position but was comfortable getting forward.
Holding - 6 - Didn't do a lot when he came on and it wasn't for long. Just covered the same really which seemed to be the ask.

Really enjoyed it, looking forward to next week.
