RATINGS: Arsenal 4-1 Galatasaray: Welbeck Outstanding
Arsenal put in a superb performance to beat Galatasaray 4-1 at the Emirates on Wednesday night with Danny Welbeck bagging a stunning hat-trick.
Here are my ratings:
Szczesny 5/10 – Very little to do until he stupidly got himself sent off. Must improve his concentration levels.
Chambers 7/10 – Battled hard at right-back. Caught out of position a couple of times but overall very solid.
Mertesacker 7/10 – Pretty comfortable evening for the BFG.
Koscielny 7.5/10 – Made a couple of excellent interceptions and brought the ball out of defence well.
Gibbs 7/10 – Another good game from Gibbsy. Never stopped getting up and down the wing.
Flamini 7/10 – Much-improved display from Mathieu. He got his compulsory booking for a rash tackle but otherwise very good.
The Ox 8/10 – His powerful running caused the visitors all sorts of problems. Superb.
Cazorla 7.5/10 – Played more centrally and put in a great display. Linked up well with those around him. Unfortunate not to score late on.
Sanchez 8.5/10 – Lovely assist for Welbeck’s first and took his goal well. Part of an attack that Galatasaray couldn’t handle.
Ozil 8/10 – Superb assist for the Sanchez goal and showed his class in the final third with several key passes.
Welbeck 9/10 – Stunning hat-trick in what was an awesome all-round display. Pace, power, clinical finishing…he has the lot.
Ospina 7.5/10 – Made some impressive stops after replacing Szczesny. His time to shine?
Rosicky 7/10 – Slotted seamlessly into midfield.
Wilshere 7/10 - Some lovely touches and almost got an assist for Cazorla.
A much needed performance and a vital three points in the bag. A great night all round. Let’s hope we take this form into Chelsea on Sunday!
