Arsenal 1-0 West Brom – player ratings

71

Although maybe it didn’t quite feel like it until we scored, Arsenal didn’t play that badly against West Brom today.

The breakthrough was hard to come by in the 1-0 win, but we completely dominated the game from start to finish and had to deal with a goalkeeper in outstanding form.

Here’s how the players rated today.

Really didn't have a lot to do but had to be strong on a couple of dangerous looking set-pieces

Did fine, let's hope the knee injury isn't too bad.

A sign of how dominant we were was the fact he made 135/142 passes. Sprayed it around well. Shooting was a bit off though

91/96 passes, 43 of which were in their attacking third. You'd just wonder if he's the guy you need at against a team that sits as deep as West Brom did today.

Worked hard, eventually the quality of his delivery brought about the winning goal. Created 7 chances from open play.

Unlucky not to score, denied by Foster, but his workrate was fantastic

Didn't get a lot of service, but his strength to hold off the defender for the goal was superb

Made a bit of a difference when he came on, Giroud or Ozil should have finished a great low cross

Unlucky not to score, denied by Foster! Helped pile on the attacking pressure as we sought the goal

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 for Ben Foster for an outstanding goalkeeping performance while at the same time allowing us the enjoyment of watching a time-wasting goalkeeper pay for all the delays over his goal kicks. Quality.
