The run of away wins came to an end but a draw at West Brom isn’t a bad result at all. How did the players rate?
See below …
Wojciech Szczesny: 7/10 – Another solid, confident performance from the Pole, made a fantastic first half save too.
Carl Jenkinson: 5/10 – Always full of running and effort but his inexperience really showed at times today. Standing off West Brom attackers as they lined up their crosses is the kind of basic stuff he should be on top of by now
Per Mertesacker: 6/10 – It’s a testament to his consistency that he didn’t seem to be involved much but still kept things pretty good back there.
Laurent Koscielny: 6/10 – Was the late challenge on Long a bit rash? We’ll give him the benefit of the doubt.
Kieran Gibbs: 7/10 – Good again, really switched on and his tracking of Amalfatino late on snuffed out a very dangerous West Brom attack.
Mathieu Flamini: 6/10 – Got a booking, of course, and scrapped his way around the pitch as usual.
Aaron Ramsey: 6/10 – His first really subdued performance of the season. Was feeling his knee and came off in the second half.
Mikel Arteta: 6/10 – Did fine, if a little bit conservative at times. The two midfields kinda cancelled each other out.
Jack Wilshere: 6/10 – Nearly eligible for two marks. His first half was, frankly, appalling, but his second very good indeed. Got the equaliser, might have been given a penalty and played the pass of the game to Giroud whose effort was well saved.
Mesut Ozil: 6/10 – Maybe just feeling the impact of so many games in such a short time in a more physically intense league than Spain. Quiet today.
Olivier Giroud: 6/10 – Some very nice hold up play at times, may feel he should have done more with Wilshere’s pass, but did ok overall.
Tomas Rosicky: 6/10 – Came on for Aaron Ramsey and injected some pace and pressure to proceedings.
Nicklas Bendtner: n/a – Not really on long enough
