Arsenal 2-1 Norwich City – player ratings

62

Arsenal had to come from behind to reach the next round of the Carabao Cup and had youngster Eddie Nketiah to thank as he rose above the mediocrity to score twice and send the Gunners through with a 2-1 win – report and goal clips here.

It wasn’t the greatest performance ever, but seeing a young kid like that come on and do the business made everything feel good.

Here are this evening’s player ratings.

Not Park, but a debut for Matt Macey and he did pretty well overall despite being beaten in the first half. A keeper with arms he can use is useful, who knew?

Another solid display from the Frenchman, and he could well be a useful asset in Arsenal 2 and as we progress in this tournament.

Quietly effective, like a Dyson hoover

Sort of good but he's also sort of not a centre-half so has issues

This will certainly do his fitness good, playing almost 2 hours, and he was scrappy

There's probably an anagram of his name which sums everything up but it's not 'Calf Con Inquires' - still got an assist for the first.

Like Maitland-Niles showed some nice flashes in the final third but these games are about experience now.

Captain for the night, he was poor overall but his corner deliveries led to both goals

Seemed to brighten things up when he came on, add a bit of vim in the final third

Once more not Park Chu Young, but Eddie Nketiah. And he had a sensational impact scoring twice and winning the game for the Gunners. His future is bright.

Not Park. Josh DaSilva, had some impact in the final stages and added much needed energy down the left when we needed it.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 Giroud doing a Platoon when he hit a free kick into the wall. What a man. We look forward to his inevitable debut on broadway after his retrirement.
