RATINGS From Arsenal’s 2-1 Win Over West Ham

For the second game in succession, we were forced to hang on to secure a vital 2-1 win. Here are how I rated the players:

Szczesny  – 8/10 – Excellent performance from the Pole. Came and claimed everything that came into his box. Could do little for the goal.

Debuchy  – 6.5/10 – Was at fault for the Kouyate goal as he hardly even got himself off the ground. Looked like he was out on his feet towards the end.

Mertesacker  – 7.5/10 – Made a crucial header to deny Carroll a certain goal early in the second half and did well to try and contain the awkward striker.

Koscielny  – 7.5/10 – Great to see him back in the side and the Frenchman put in a resolute performance to keep West Ham at bay.

Monreal  – 6.5/10 – Was beaten too easily a few times but was otherwise solid enough.

Flamini  – 6.5/10 – Another busy display from Flamini but gave away some cheap fouls.

Coquelin  – 7/10 – Made a rare start in the league and I was impressed. Covered lots of ground and dealt well against a tough West Ham side.

The Ox – 8/10 – Great play to set up Welbeck for the second goal and was unlucky not to score himself in the second half. A little selfish on one occasion though as he should have squared to Sanchez for a certain goal.

Cazorla  – 7.5/10 – Beaten far too easily by O’Brien for the Kouyate goal but was a threat on the ball. Tucked away his penalty well.

Alexis  – 8/10 – Unbelievably he didn’t get an assist or goal but was a key player for us once again. Worked tirelessly and was always a threat.

Welbeck  – 8/10 – On hand to poke home the winner and nearly scored a worldy when he ran half the length of the pitch before firing just wide.

Subs:

Gibbs (6), Chambers (NA)

So another vital win and we’re now level on points with Southampton and just two points off third-placed Man Utd.

The Saints are up next for what will no doubt be a difficult away game but another win and we’ll be heading into the New Year in fine form.

    Reid, Carvalho & Cavani could be the best signnings at the moment!
