Arsenal 2-1 Man City – player ratings

116

There was a lot more to like from today’s performance, an Arsenal side that looked like Arsenal, beating Man City 2-1 at Wembley to reach the FA Cup final.

Not only was it a good team display, there were some excellent individual performances too.

Here’s how the players rated today (and yes, we will be sorting out the formation issues!)

A bit slow on the goal, he should have kept coming, but made up for it somewhat with a great save from Yaya Toure.

What a performance from a 20 year old in these circumstances, with this pressure. Looks a big prospect.

Our best player today, a fantastic goal, and he defended superbly from first whistle to last.

That wing-back role really suits him - great cross for the Monreal goal and he did his job down that right very well

Gave the ball away which led to the goal, but we shouldn't have been caught so easily with a simple ball over the top. Worked hard all day.

Somewhat culpable for the City goal, pushed too far forward when he should have sat back on Aguero, but was solid and used the ball well

A man for the big occasion - an FA Cup semi winner again. He does like it at Wembley.

Not at his best, had some real chances to make a big impact late in the game but didn't manage to take advantage of them.

Starved of service, and got fouled constantly, but we looked better when he went off.

He had a big, big impact when he came on. Squandered/wasted chances, but he caused them all kinds of problems.

Came on for Ox, and made one brilliant block to prevent a late equaliser.

Just on to waste some time

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 - How miserable Steve McManaman must be that we won. The woolly-headed Scouse wankblanket.
