Arsenal 2-1 Burnley – player ratings

96

What a grandstand finish to the game. It looked as if we were going to drop two points, but the late penalty from Alexis Sanchez ensured we took all three with a 2-1 win over a team who must hate the sight of us this season.

To which I say: haha.

Anyway, here are the player ratings today.

Unlucky with the penalty, he should just stand still, but made some good saves and commanded his area well

Got his first goal, still unbeaten in an Arsenal shirt, but still had some iffy moments in the first half.

10/10 clearances, 7/7 aerial clearances, and looked like he pushed himself through the pain barrier too

I think the red card was harsh, but he made it easy for the referee to make that decision. Has to stay on his feet. Before that though, he was excellent. Shame to lose him for four games now.

An assist for the Mustafi goal, went about his business really well today.

Quiet in the first half, but was really growing into the game in the second. Sacrificed for Coquelin because of the red card.

His finishing was dodgy all day and his record with penalties really isn't great. However, to score a panenka under that much pressure showed balls of steel. Then went to celebrate under the banner with his dogs on. A perfect moment!

Having scored 11 goals in his last 9 starts for the club, his record ran out today. Worked hard, got back well defensively at times.

Had some nice moments on the ball, but guilty of giving away a penalty that could have been very costly.

Showed great movement when he came on but understandably rusty and his first touch let him down. More minutes are good though.

Came on to help shore things up

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: Fuck off and never come back/10 for Jon Moss. He's so terrible at his job and he obviously hates Granit Xhaka.
