Arsenal 2-1 Leicester – player ratings

119

It wasn’t pretty and if Leicester had a player who could finish rather than shoot JUST wide it well have been very different, but it wasn’t.

A 2-1 win meant we took three points and here’s how the players rated.

Could he have done better with the goal? Maybe it came through a crowd of legs but he won't have enjoyed being beaten at his near post like that. A bit unsure in the air at times too

Exposed a bit in the first half as he had no cover from Walcott, but overall grew into the game well and was really smart at times in the second period. Made 7/7 clearances too.

Like Bellerin made 7 clearances, including one off the line just before their goal. 100% of his aerial duels won too.

Got the opening goal with a smart run and was defensively switched with 10/10 clearances and an impressive 10/10 in aerial duels.

Tidy on the ball, won lots of his challenges and got forward well at times. Another solid display.

Attempted the second most passes of the night but 16 of the 89 went astray and he could have been a little more cautious in possession. Won 6/10 tackles, 9/9 in the air and made 6 clearances.

A typically Tommy performance but without any end product tonight. He still gives you plenty though.

At times it felt like kick a little Spaniard day out there as he took some punishment, but also found it hard going against the bigger, stronger men in the centre of the park.

Played some beautiful stuff first half, it was his brilliant toe poke which led to the corner for the first goal and his shot which led to Walcott scoring the second. Worked hard too but couldn't quite have an impact in the second period – although that's true of most of the men in red.

Yes, he scored, but other than that and fluffing an early chance he did absolutely nothing. Attempted just 9 passes in the game, completed only 6. Had less touches of the ball than Giroud despite playing 50 minutes more. His night was summed up by the moment he called for a Coquelin pass and then stood watching as it drifted aimlessly into the Leicester box. Can the goals continue to offset a player who is just so uninvolved for huge swathes of matches?

Very obviously felt the effects of what I thought was a nasty challenge on him by Upson. Tried to stay on, as we knew he would, but couldn't shake off the impact.

Ran around a lot when he came on and got booked when Schwarzer booted the ball at his back. Mad Ted.

Lasted less than 10 minutes before worryingly going off with a hamstring strain
