Torreira Man of the Moment Again Player Ratings

By Matt Sadler
December 8 2018

Difficult one today as a few players looked knackered after a mammoth effort over the last week. Huddersfield were out to disrupt and frustrate. Really lacked that player between the midfield three and front two in the first half.

It was starting to look like we'd never score, but we kept going and won it late after a brilliant acrobatic finish from Torreira.

No Mustafi or Sokratis for Southampton as both on 5th yellow after today

Ratings:

Leno - 6. Can't recall him having anything to do.

Lichtsteiner - 6. Okay. Went mental after Torreira was fouled. Sacrificed at half time.
Mustafi - 6. Okay. Booked for diving and hobbled off injured. Suspended for Southampton if he isn't out injured already.
Sokratis - 7. Played well but suspended for Southampton now.

Bellerin - 7. Did well again. Didn't have much defending to do. Clearly enjoyed the freedom to get forward.
Torreira - 7. Not as dynamic as he has been but played well. Excellent winner.
Xhaka - 7. Thought he had a good game bar that stupid pass out from the back in the first half. Booked for diving.
Guendouzi - 7. Yeah thought he did well again. Lively and got about. Booked for diving.
Kolasinac - 6. Up and down the left but didn't produce anything.

Aubameyang - 6. Thought he was pretty poor overall but did well for our winner. Missed two really good chances.
Lacazette - 6. Missed a good chance in the first half. Thought he was unlucky to be substituted at half time personally.

Subs:

Iwobi - 5. Tried but some really awful touches.
Mkhitaryan - 5. So-so on the ball, useless without it.
Monreal - 7. Was like he'd never been away.

Arsenal 1 Huddersfield 0
