Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal – player ratings

184

If there’s such a thing as good 0-0 draw, that was it today as we dug in at Stamford Bridge, and showed we’d paid attention to what happened at Anfield a few weeks ago.

Aaron Ramsey was voted Sky’s Man of the Match, so here’s how he the rest of the players rated today.

Solid throughout and made a superb save in the first half to deny Pedro a goal.

Fantastic, committed stuff from the skipper today, really smart defending from first whistle to last.

Was troubled throughout by Alvaro Morata, but thankfully we weren't punished.

So unlucky not score, and while he always wants to make an impact in the final third, it shows how good he can be if he adds positional discipline to his game

Used the ball well, defended well, delivered some good balls in from set-pieces

Alonso barely got a sniff in the final third, and produced some quality in their final third too. Sumptuous yellow card late on.

Started a bit hesitantly but grew into the game well. It's lucky he is as strong as an Ox (actual Ox, not Mugsmaher benchwarmer) because Luiz's challenge could have done him some real damage. Gorgeous yellow card late on.

Had a great chance in the first half, heading wide, but his workrate is so important in games like this

A surprise inclusion, but he had a very assured performance for a young man low on confidence in recent times. Let's hope this is the start of him back on the right road.

Had a good first half in particular, and should have scored after Ramsey's effort came back off the post – even if it came at him quickly. Faded a bit as the game went on, perhaps still getting up to speed with the English game.

Didn't really have a great deal of impact when he came on.

Like Sanchez didn't really have a big impact from an attacking point of view

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 for the cynical fouls, in particular from Bellerin and Kolasinac, late in the game which prevented potentially dangerous Chelsea breaks. That's the good, good stuff.
