Great Match But Arsenal Pay The Penalty Ratings v Liverpool
By Matt Sadler
October 30 2019

Enjoyed the game but was left feeling frustrated as we were unable to hang on to our multiple leads and then went out on penalties. Ratings below:

Ratings:

Martinez - 5. Conceded 5 but most of them were class finishes to be fair.

Bellerin - 6. Looked sharper. Can't be far off a league return now?
Mustafi - 5. Early OG pretty much sums up why he's now a reserve. Didn't really look comfortable.
Holding - 5. Not ready for a league return on this showing.
Kolasinac - 4. Just no good defensively. Hard to see him getting his spot back from Tierney.

Torreira - 6. Scored in an energetic performance. Will be pushing for a start in Xhaka's absence now.
Willock - 6. Wasn't having his best performance till Ozil went off and he was pushed further forward. Scored a worldie that should've been the winner.

Maitland-Niles - 7. Much better from him. Scored and was involved in other goals.
Ozil - 8. I'm not a fan of his anymore, but thought he showed genuine quality for the most part and was involved in a few of the goals. Surprisingly I wasn't happy he got subbed off either.
Saka - 6. Not his best but was always involved. Assisted Martinelli's second.

Martinelli - 7. Scored two and had a couple of chances to complete his hat trick, but conceded a penalty. Will be a star.

Subs:

Guendouzi - 5. Tried to put himself about.
Ceballos - 4. Frantic game and didn't really get up to pace.
Tierney - N/A. Not on long.
