Lacazette MotM as defences take the day off at Cardiff
By Matt Sadler
September 2 2018

Tale of two lousy defences, but one of those lousy defences has about £100 million worth of striking talent ahead of them.

RATINGS:

Cech - 4. Really shaky today. Not comfortable at all playing out from the back.

Bellerin - 5. Adventurous going forward but unimpressive defensively.
Mustafi - 6. Scored a great header. Not great defensively.
Sokratis - 5. Poor.
Monreal - 5. Adventurous going forward but poor defensively. Lost his man for both Cardiff goals.

Guendouzi - 5. Mixed bag today.
Xhaka - 5. Assist for our opener but ridiculous giveaway led to Cardiff's first equaliser.

Ozil - 5. Didn't even notice him playing in the first half. Second half was an improvement. Involved in Aubameyang's goal.
Ramsey - 6. Good first half. Put a shift in but not particularly effective in the second half. Again I'm not seeing a £200k p/w player.
Aubameyang - 6. Great finish but didn't do a lot else. Pretty useless unless he's within scoring distance.

Lacazette - 8. Best player today. Could tell he wanted it. Hit the post, made one, scored one.

Subs:

Torreira - 6. Made a big difference coming on. Has to start.
Welbeck - N/A. Not on long.
Mkhitaryan - N/A. Not on long.
