RATINGS: My Ratings From Arsenal’s 1-0 Win Over West Brom

By on May 4, 2014

Arsenal played out a low key 1-0 win over West Brom at the Emirates today with Olivier Giroud scoring a first half winner.

Here are my ratings:

Szczesny 7/10 | Made a couple of decent stops and was commanding from crosses.

Sagna 7/10 | Another solid outings from the Frenchman. Hopefully this wasn’t his last appearance at the Emirates.

Mertesacker 7/10 | Calm and composed at the back.

Koscielny 7.5/10 | Swept up well behind Per and didn’t give the West Brom attack a sniff.

Monreal 6.5/10 | Energetic down the left-side. Looks much fitter now but subbed after being booked.

Flamini 6/10 | Solid and unspectacular in midfield.

Arteta 6.5/10 | Kept things ticking over before getting a well-earned rest midway through the second half.

Cazorla 7.5/10 | Another impressive performance from the Spaniard. Set up the goal with a well-taken corner.

Ozil 7.5/10 | Lost the ball a few times but showed his class on occasion as well. His final ball wasn’t on point and should have scored but was a danger when on the ball.

Podolski 6.5/10 | Missed a great chance to make it 2-0 when he hit the post from close range, but put a few dangerous crosses in.

Giroud 7.5/10 | Took his goal well with a lovely header and worked hard up front.


Kallstrom 6.5/10 | Played a couple of lovely balls.

Rosicky 6/10 | Ran around a lot.

Vermaelen 6/10 | On at left-back, hopefully this wont be his last game at the Emirates.

Another three points in the bag but you can tell the players have one eye on the FA Cup final, and you can’t really blame them.

What were your ratings?

    Cazorla 7.5? Are you barking mad? He looked like a 13 year old out there! 5.5 is stretching it. We go nowhere against top sides with the lack of midfield pace and power we had out today. It has been that like that for two seasons now and everybody seems to twig except you and Arsene. Be injury free Diaby, Rambo and the Ox– please!
