Ratings: Gabriel & Cazorla Impress As Arsenal Beat Newcastle 1-0
Arsenal needed an own goal from Fabricio Coloccini to beat Newcastle United 1-0 at St James’ Park this afternoon.
Here are my ratings
Cech - 6/10 - Didn’t have a lot to do.
Bellerin - 6/10 - Fairly easy game for the youngster but he could have offered more going forwards.
Koscielny - 6.5/10 - Comfortable afternoon for Kos. No real threat offered by the hosts.
Gabriel - 7.5/10 - I thought he was excellent. Didn’t put a foot wrong and looked at home alongside Koscielny.
Monreal - 6/10 - Steady performance again. Dealt with the threat of Sissoko well enough.
Coquelin - 7/10 - Solid game from Le Coq. Was given some rough treatment from the hosts though.
Cazorla - 7.5/10 - Made everything tick in the middle of the park.
Ramsey - 7/10 - Back in the middle and made some clever runs behind the defence. Worked his socks off too.
The Ox – 6/10 - It was his shot that let to the winning goal but otherwise he didn’t do a lot to be honest. Disappointing.
Sanchez - 7.5/10 - Always a danger and went close to scoring a couple of times, but he still looks like he’s not 100% yet.
Walcott - 5/10 - Struggled up front against a deep Newcastle defence. Wasted two good chances too.
Giroud – 5/10 – Spurned a great chance to make it 2-0 at the death.
