Stoke 3-2 Arsenal – player ratings

100

Well, that game was like being served a lovely meal in a beautiful restaurant – except the meal is dead, putrefied otter meat with worms and mushed up cockroaches in it, and the beautiful restaurant is actually a crack den where you wake up to find an old man with crusted sores all over his hands playing with your special area.

Here’s how we thought the players rated.

Has been good lately, but looked a bit less comfortable today. Not surprising given the state of the back four.

I think it's fair to say we can see why the manager is reluctant to use him unless he really has no choice. His inexperience showed.

Just looks so less assured without Koscielny.

Misjudged the cross for the first goal, had a difficult day against Crouch, and ended up being somewhat harshly sent off. Needs to stop getting booked so much.

Not 100% fit, and it showed.

Got a goal against Stoke, and was one of our most positive players, but he and Flamini didn't protect the back four well enough.

Tucked away his penalty, but failed to create anything meaningful in the 90 minutes.

Had some nice moments and provided some threat down the right, but overall didn't do much.

It's pretty obvious he's on the point of exhaustion but he still worked harder than any other player on the team. So unlucky with his effort that hit the post after a brilliant run from halfway. Will be lucky if he avoids catching something from Charlie Adam after the disgusting midfielder tried to choke him to death.

Had to score that chance early in the first half which would have made it 1-1 and got them to pipe down a bit too. A terrible miss. And after the impact he had as a sub on Wednesday, strengthens the case that kind of role might suit him best.

Forced Begovic into one save but other than that found it hard to get involved.

Unfair to rate him as he only came on in the 92nd minute, but was waiting to come on from the 81 minute mark. Why did the manager delay until it was almost pointless putting him on?
