Ratings: Sheff Weds 3-0 Arsenal: Three players given 2/10
It was an embarrassing night for Arsenal as we crashed out of the League Cup after losing 3-0 at Sheffield Wednesday. Here are my ratings….they aren’t pretty:
Cech 5/10 – Not particularly at fault for any of the goals but still not a good night for our No.1
Debuchy 2/10 – Horrendous performance from Debuchy. Caught out of position on several occasions and showed us why he’s well behind Bellerin.
Chambers 4/10 – Wasn’t our worst performer but could have done better for the second goal and doesn’t look ready for a first team place just yet.
Mertesacker 4/10 – Per won’t be getting his place back from Gabriel any time soon if he continues this form. Couldn’t handle the Wednesday attack and fell asleep for the third.
Gibbs 4/10 – Another player who disappointed. Gibbs seems to be going back wards.
Flamini 2/10 – Woeful performance. At fault for the first goal and gave the ball away numerous times. His ‘hero’ status following his goals at White Hart Lane was short lived.
Kamara 3/10 – Felt sorry for the lad. Badly let down by his more experienced team mates.
Ox N/A – Off inside two minutes with a hamstring injury. Pray it’s not serious.
Campbell 4/10 – Showed some neat footwork at times but his passing and delivery were terrible.
Iwobi 4/10 – At least he was trying to make things happen. Looks a prospect but was out his depth.
Giroud 2/10 – Embarrassing effort from the previously in-form striker. Made very little effort and looked more interested in not getting injured.
Walcott N/A – Also off within 15 minutes of coming on with a calf problem. If he’s out for any period of time, we’re in big trouble.
Bennacer 4/10 – Showed a good touch and was eager to impress but also out his depth.
Bielik – 5/10 – Impressive in parts. Decent cameo.
Best we just forget about this game as quickly as possible and move on…..
