Ratings: Flamini the hero as Arsenal beat Tottenham 2-1

By on September 23, 2015

Flamini was the hero as Arsenal beat Tottenham 2-1 at White Hart Lane to book our place in the fourth round of the Capital One Cup.

Here are my ratings:

Ospina  - 7/10  -  Did he give Chambers a shout for their goal? If not, he should have. Made a couple of routine saves but pulled off a worldy to deny Eriksen.

Debuchy  - 4/10  - Given a torrid time by Rose. At fault for the equaliser as he was too narrow and failed to cut out the cross. Looks well short of his best form.

Mertesacker  - 7/10  - Solid shift from the BFG. Kept Kane relatively quiet.

Chambers  - 5/10  - Another own goal for the youngster. No need to stick a leg out. Didn’t look comfortable all night.

Gibbs  - 7/10  - Superb goal-line clearance to deny Kane with the scores at 1-1.

Arteta  - 5/10  - Off the pace. Booked early on and was ineffective for much of the game.

Flamini  - 8/10  - Tidy finish to make it 1-0 but stepped up to smash home a stunning volley to win it. What a hero.

Oxlade-Chamberlain  - 7/10  - Was one of the few who looked a threat during the opening 60 minutes but end product is still lacking.

Ramsey  - 7/10  - Quiet in the first half but was far more involved after the break when he created a few good chances.

Campbell  - 5/10  - Very little impact at all. Just couldn’t get in the game.

Giroud  - 5.5/10  - Worked hard up top but had little to play with for the first half of the game. Missed great chance in the 70th minute.


Sanchez  - 7/10 – Made a real impact. Him just being on the pitch scared Spurs and he looked a threat.

Walcott N/A

So we’re back to winning ways and it couldn’t have been sweeter, with Flamini being the unlikely hero having scored a stunning winner.

A trip to Sheffield Wednesday in the next round awaits but first up we head to Leicester this weekend….
