Southampton 0-5 Arsenal – player ratings

115

Although the initial team selection caused some trepidation, the lads showed there’s some real strength in depth, hammering the Saints 5-0.

Two goals for Danny Welbeck and a hat-trick from Theo Walcott were the obvious markers, but there was a lot more to enjoy besides that.

Here’s how the players rated.

Absolutely superb, his passing and vision was brilliant throughout, and when he had to get back and defend he did that too. Very impressive.

Just 19 years of age, and he was absolutely fantastic. Led the team for passes and touches in the first half, and was completely switched on throughout. A real prospect.

Silky smooth at times, his ability to nick the ball away from the opponent and stride on reminds me of another French midfielder

Considering he hasn't played since December 21st he was really sharp - his finishes were excellent

That flick for Welbeck's first goal was, dare we say it, Bergkamp-esque. Unlucky not to score and always looks like a player who can contribute something.

Oh Danny boy! Great to see him back, fantastic finishing, and hopefully he can kick on from here and stay fit.

Came on 3-0 up, provided two assists for Theo Walcott, he can happy with his cameo.

Slotted into the midfield seamlessly when he came on.
