Sp*rs 1-0 Arsenal – player ratings

160

Another away day ended in disappointment as a dreadful second half performance saw Arsenal go down by just 1-0, but in truth it could have been more.

A succession of great chances were either missed or saved by Petr Cech, and on the day the home side were worthy winners – and that hurts to say.

Here’s how the players rated today.

But for him the scoreline would have been even bigger. Had a couple of iffy moments, but then any keeper in the world playing behind a defence like that would suffer. Made at least three, if not four, top class saves.

Basically had the whole the right flank to himself, got no support offensively or defensively, but defended well, ran his socks off, and late on created a great chance for Lacazette which the striker made a mess of. Our best outfield player today.

Along with Mustafi went to pieces in the second half, allowing Kane far too much time and space, and we got punished for it.

Made some good blocks, but it was last ditch defending and as the second half progressed we become more and more open in the centre and they failed to take advantage

Not the crisp, crunchy Nacho we all enjoy. More a soggy crisp that was floating around in an ashtray.

He's always tidy, doesn't give us anything going forward, but at least helps create the veneer of control in midfield

Ended up with a pass completion rate of 94%, better than any other Arsenal player and only Demebele for them did better. And yet, we just seem so pedestrian with him in the side.

Battled hard, unlucky his pass for Aubameyang saw the striker deemed offside, but Arsenal were overrun in midfield today.

Some glimpses here and there but he struggled to impose himself on the game

Got no service, but was inexplicably shunted out wide when Wenger brought Lacazette on, and that made him less involved.

Found it hard to get into the game but created a brilliant chance for Lacazette late on

Just 1 goal in 13, and today he spurned two great chances. He blasted Bellerin's perfect cross way over, and late on when put through by Iwobi he could have equalised or squared for Aubameyang to tap-in, but he did neither. Looks like he'd rather be anywhere else at the moment.

Not on long enough to rate

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 1/10 Arsenal's away record this season. From 14 games we've taken just 13 of 42 available points. Dismal doesn't even come close to it, and this is on Arsene Wenger. We're in February and he still hasn't found a solution
