Arsenal 1-2 Watford – player ratings

119

If you’ve followed Arsenal long enough, you’ll know this club can take you from the sublime to the ridiculous, and tonight was another in a long list of examples of that, going down 2-1 to Watford.

A dreadful first 45 minutes went a long way to sealing our fate, and despite Iwobi’s 58th minute goal, we couldn’t find the goal/goals we needed.

I’m not rating the players tonight, it’s all on you guys. Comments on each player though.

He tries hard but when he plays at right back, the team is never as fluid

Poor, conceded needless free kicks – one of which resulted in the opening goal.

Bossed it in the second half but like everyone else in the first half well off the pace

Unlucky with the first, deflected in off him, and for the second the throw in was awful – but look at the 'defending' from Coquelin and Mustafi. Another injury, and he doesn't work alongside Coquelin.

Created 6 goalscoring chances tonight, none of them were taken, including a great one for Walcott which was missed early in the early second half

Got an assist for Iwobi, but apart from that not much came off

Was driving us forward on the left, but when he moved central a lot of that momentum seemed to vanish

Picked up a knock early on, got no service, but nor did he impose himself on the game.

Made a difference early in the second half but after a bad miss faded almost completely.

Pretty positive when he came on to replace Ramsey, but is he also injured now?

Would really like to see him start games – smashed the bar with a great shot late on

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 for me when I didn't punch myself in the face at any point during that first half. It took a lot of willpower.
