Red Star Belgrade 0-1 Arsenal – player ratings

69

Arsenal made it three wins from three in the Europa League this season after a brilliant Olivier Giroud goal five minutes from time gave us a 1-0 victory.

Arsene Wenger’s somewhat makeshift team struggled to find much to trouble Red Star Belgrade, but as it looked like time was running out, the wiles of Wilshere, Walcott and Giroud combined to ensure the three points came back to North London.

Here’s how the players rated.

Solid, and made some good saves in the first half. Good performance.

He lasted the 90 minutes and did pretty well overall.

He's honest and industrious but not a centre-half.

Showed some nice touches at times, but he's never going to shine playing out of position

Just back from injury so he was rusty, shall we say

Faded as the game went on, but had a really solid display - rarely wasted the ball and was always alert.

Used his pace well at times from a defensive point of view, but he's a DM playing as wing-back. It just doesn't suit him

Always looked like the one player who might make a difference and he played a big part in the goal.

Fluffed a good first half chance, and did little else bar the header for the goal.

Hats off to him, the finish was brilliant and credit for that: but overall he had a poor game so the rating reflects that.

Marcus McGuane came on for Willock. He is not Chu Young Park.

Ben Sheaf came on for Coquelin. Like McGuane, he is also not Chu Young Park.

Vote is now closed.

10/10: That moment when the referee blew the whistle and it was over, and we also got to see a wonderful goal.
