RATINGS: My Ratings From Arsenal’s Shocking 2-1 Defeat At Swansea

By on November 9, 2014

It was another painful performance from Arsenal today as we lost 2-1 to Swansea City at the Liberty Stadium after blowing a one-goal lead.

We lacked spark, urgency and ideas going forward and with a back-four as poor as ours, we are always going to concede goals.

Here are my ratings:

Szczesny – 5/10 – No chance for the free-kick but could have done better for the second.

Chambers – 3/10 – Totally roasted by Montero all afternoon. Felt sorry for him as he had no cover but a really bad day at the office.

Monreal – 5/10 – At fault for their winner as he lost out to Gomis in the air. Not all his fault though as he shouldn’t be playing in the middle. We need Kos back ASPA.

Mertesacker – 6/10 – Not particularly at fault for either goal, but needs Koscielny back alongside him badly.

Gibbs – 5/10 – Gave away the foul leading to the free-kick. Not at his best going forward.

Flamini – 5/10 – Brought nothing to the team apart from silly fouls. Booked. Obviously.

Ramsey – 5/10 – Went close with a volley but otherwise fairly anonymous.

The Ox – 7.5/10 – One of the few who can hold his head high. Was a constant threat and created the goal with a wonderful run. Could have helped Chambers out a bit more though.

Cazorla – 4/10 – Poor form continues. Brought little to our attacking play. Should have been subbed.

Sanchez – 7/10 – On hand to score his sixth goal in 4 games. Worked hard but had virtually no service other than the goal.

Welbeck – 6/10 – Kept a calm head to set-up Sanchez for the goal. Fluffed a great chance to score in the first half.

Subs:

Walcott – 5/10 – Only on for 10 minutes but wasted a great chance to get a shot on goal when his touch let him down.

Wilshere – 5/10 – Added a bit of urgency but little else.

Sangogo – N/A – On too late.

So another hugely disappointing display and there is something lacking in this Arsenal side. I hope it’s just confidence, and a proper defence, as those things can be rectified eventually.

However, I fear the whole structure and mentality of the squad is all wrong and it may only be something we can solve with, dare I say, a change of manager.

I’m off on holiday now to forget about football, enjoy the two week interlull…..

    It seems we will have to have a shocking season for Wenger to fall on his sword.
    He has no idea how to put a defence together, he has George Graham to thank for his early success.
    I hope someone is sharpening the sword as we speak

    Basic defending, it does not take a rocket scientist to move chambers to centre half as he was getting slaughtered at full back and is a better centre half than Monreal, bring on Bellerin, as he is one of the fastest in the club, that is his position and demand Ox to give more cover when we never had the ball. This side is not good enough to win anything unless they add at least two significant signings in Jan

      U’re right! I doubt Chambers’ speed pretty much. Does he run fast enough as a RB???

    My response will always be the same, that for Wenger failure to sign centre defender and defensive midfielder, he is not going to make top four this season, not to talk of winning wires. This is going to be Arsene’s worst season in arsenal. Gunners 4ever.

    Yes,arsenal has given a disappointing performance. And the thing which will improve the performance is definitely the new ideas, new training techniques and also reshuffle of the team.
