Them Mugsmashers got done smashed, here’s how the smashtastic Gooners rated.
Oh, and just in case you didn’t know, we’re top of the league.
Wojciech Szczesny: 8/10 – Made good saves, was really solid on crosses and corners, another encouraging display. One mad moment late on, but he deserved to get away with it.
Bacary Sagna: 8/10 – More reliable that Johnny Reliable from Reliable Town who has just taken his Reliability medicine. Love him.
Per Mertesacker: 8/10 – Im-Per-ious. Geddit? Yeah, you do.
Laurent Koscielny: 8/10 – Made life so difficult for Bitey that by midway through the second half he’d more less given up dropping off to pick up the ball in midfield because he knew Koscielny would get right through the back of him.
Kieran Gibbs: 8/10 – Hopefully the injury isn’t bad but his progress continues and it’s great to see.
Mikel Arteta: 9/10 – How quickly people forget how good he is. A little taste of Flamini strange and all of a sudden Arteta’s a liability? Pffff. Outstanding yesterday.
Tomas Rosicky: 8/10 – Ran his floppy-haired hole off, making life difficult for the Liverpool midfield to get any hold on the game.
Aaron Ramsey: 8/10 – Was kinda quiet by his recent standards, then scored another fantastic goal. He is in irrepressible form.
Santi Cazorla: 8/10 –Looked much sharper than in recent games, the goal was excellent after attacking that cross in the first place.
Mesut Ozil: 7/10 – Off the pace a bit, but did get involved in good stuff. Twice made brilliant runs into the box which weren’t spotted and would have created good chances.
Olivier Giroud: 9/10 – Hey Bobby, what’s the French for ‘Holy shit, this guy is a monster. A big, beautiful monster?’
Nacho Monreal: 7/10 – The usual solid cameo – may now have to do a job in Dortmund with Gibbs injury.
Thomas Vermaelen: 6/10 – Slotted in at left back when Gibbs went off. Did grand.
Carl Jenkinson: 6/10 – Performed a quite magnificent rugby tackle on the halfway line.
Luis Suarez’s missed chance: LOL/10
