Arsenal 4-3 Leicester City – player ratings

250

I’ll be honest, there were times when I thought this game was not going to go our way, but in the end we were 4-3 winners – report and goals here.

We went ahead, we went behind, then we won it in the last 10 minutes, an amazing start to the season and for the second year running the first game of the season has been a 4-3 – only this time we were on the right end of it.

Here’s how the players rated.

Not great on the first goal, but made a great challenge on Vardy and late on claimed some of their Stoke-ish long throws.

Had one of those games that a young centre-half can have, so let's hope this is a learning experience rather than a damaging one

As good as he is, I don't think he's the right man to anchor a three man defence. Made some important interventions late on.

What a debut from the Bosnian, strong, committed, got an assist, and that double drag-back ... ooooof!

Weird one: poor for the second goal and should have done more for the third, but almost everything good we did involved him in some way. Can do better but did good stuff too.

Tidy enough, but one of those games which highlighted some of his limitations

Some great runs but use of the ball was poor, classic Ox. Did his defensive duties well though

Didn't look 100% fit, lovely control in the lead up to the third goal

Didn't seem to be in the game at all then burst into life. Got an important goal and linked up well with those around him.

What a start to his career in England, great header, and he was decent throughout. A good debut.

Not everyone's favourite but if you can't find any love in your heart for this guy and his goals you're probably a white walker.

He came on

Vote is now closed.

10/10 - That moment my heart started beating again as I was sitting there wondering how on earth I was going to write about another opening day defeat tomorrow.
