Chelsea 3-1 Arsenal – player ratings

207

Arsenal’s chances of the Premier League title, slim as they were in the first place, were ended by Chelsea today and an abject second half performance that was reminiscent of last season’s horror show at Old Trafford.

The Gunners can have complaints about the clear foul on Hector Bellerin for the opening goal, but nothing else. They just weren’t good enough on the day, going down 3-1.

Here’s how the players rated.

Slow to react for the first goal, terrible mistake for the third.

Elbowed straight in the face for the opening goal. It's unbelievable that TV and hacks aren't calling it for what it is. It was a dangerous foul, and in a game like this the first goal usually means so much. It's not excusing the rest of Arsenal's performance, but anyone who doesn't think that was a foul is an idiot.

Not very good today. He could be, whisper it, a bit overrated.

Should have taken Hazard down, take a yellow card, instead he left a small man bounce him into a different dimension. Poor in general.

A huge talent but sometimes his inexperience is obvious and today was one of those days

At Old Trafford earlier in the season he switched off, let his man go and they scored. Said he'd learn from it. Did exactly the same today. More or less anonymous throughout.

Like Ozil should be capable of so much more, but did very little of any consequence.

Defensively he did ok, but should have scored before half-time, headed straight at Courtois.

Got a consolation goal which didn't feel particularly consoling

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 0/10 - It's February 4th and our title hopes are over. Not good enough, and something's gotta give. More detailed thoughts tomorrow on arseblog.com
