Arsenal Times
Torreira Beats Mustafi to MotM Player Ratings at Man U
By Matt Sadler

Really exciting game but neither side showed a great deal of quality in truth. Quite a battle in the end. Surprised both teams finished the game with 11 men. Disappointing to have taken the lead twice and thrown it away pretty pathetically both times. Yet again defending lets Arsenal down, but still unbeaten. Ratings follow:

Leno - 5. Think he could've done better on both United goals.

Mustafi - 7. Did well again, both as RCB and CB. Scored.
Sokratis - 7. Another solid performance, as CB and later LCB.
Holding - 6. Looked comfortable on the ball but could he have done more to stop United's first goal? Real shame he's suffered a bad injury while he was doing so well.

Bellerin - 6. Okay but wasn't as adventurous as he has been.
MotM Torreira - 8. Really good again I thought. Proper warrior, never hides.
Guendouzi - 7. I was worried about him coming into the starting eleven for such a big occasion but I thought he got better as the game went on. Confident and composed in possession. Drew a lot of fouls.
Kolasinac - 5. Always dangerous on the overlap, but too often the final ball isn't there. Really messed up on United's second equaliser and I can't pretend I was thrilled with his defensive work rate later on.

Ramsey - 6. Not bad but not particularly effective. Went off at half time.
Aubameyang - 6. Worked hard but didn't really get into the game until the end. Should've scored.
Iwobi - 5. Always gets in good positions and carries the ball well but does very little with it. Another who could've done more to prevent United's first equaliser.


Lichtsteiner - 7. Yeah I thought he slotted in well as RCB.
Mkhitaryan - 7. Best I've seen him play in a while. Lively. Did well for Lacazette's goal but should've scored.
Lacazette - 6. Scored. Cheeky heading the ball out of de Gea's hands as well.
