Unlucky Arsenal Player Ratings v Spurs Sokratis MotM?


By Matt Sadler

Despite all the pre-match talk about the team selection it looked like Emery had got it spot on, as Arsenal showed shape, structure and discipline for the most part.

The Gunners took the lead through Ramsey and continued to defend well, but failed to build on their lead when Lacazette missed a sitter. Spurs equalised after being given a penalty for an obvious foul by Mustafi on Kane, though he was clearly offside. We had another big chance late on but Aubameyang's penalty was awful.

Think the officials got all of the big decisions wrong today.

Very disappointing as we should have all 3 points.

RATINGS: Leno - 7. Stunning double save in the first half. Reacted quickly to block from Rose in the second half.


Mustafi - 5. Thought we'd got away with playing him at right back as he was fine for the most part, but that foul for the penalty was idiotic, even if they were offside.
Sokratis - 8. Rose to the occasion. Kane got nothing out of him.
Koscielny - 7. Had a fair bit to do but did it all well again.
Monreal - 7. Solid defensively and offered an overlap option when he could.

Xhaka - 7. Quality on the ball.
Guendouzi - 6. I was surprised to see him substituted at half time. Thought he had read the danger well.

Mkhitaryan - 7. Worked hard and showed quality on the ball, particularly for our penalty.
Ramsey - 7. Took his goal well. Worked hard.
Iwobi - 7. Thought he did well, particularly in the first half.

Lacazette - 6. Quality assist for Ramsey's goal but missed two chances he really should've put away.

Subs:

Torreira - 6. Got stuck in. Sent off late.
Aubameyang - 5. Moved well at times without getting too involved. Awful penalty.
Ozil - 5. Didn't get into the game at all.

Spurs 1 Arsenal 1
