Ratings: Walcott shines again but Ozil disappoints in Arsenal win

By on September 28, 2016

Theo Walcott scored both goals as Arsenal eased to a 2-0 victory over FC Basel on Champions league match day 2 on Wednesday evening. Here are my ratings:

Ospina 7

Not as busy as he was against PSG but still made a couple of decent saves to keep his clean sheet.

Bellerin 8

Another lung-busting display down the right. Always keen to get forward and create chances.

Mustafi 8 

Superb at the back as he continued to forge a solid partnership with Koscielny.

Koscielny 7.5

Made some important interceptions and swept things up at the back.

Monreal 7

Decent performance in defence and went close to scoring in the first half.

Xhaka 7.5

Kept things moving in midfield and showed his passing range with some lovely balls.

Cazorla 7.5

Superb pass in the build-up to the opener in another fine display.

Ozil 7

Ozil wasn’t one of the stand-out players which was unusual given how well we played. The German did see plenty of the ball but should have got on the scoresheet after missing a couple of great chances in the first half.

Iwobi 7

Involved in some good passages of play but out-shone by those around him.

Walcott 9

Superb. Great desire to power home the opening goal and great finish to make it 2-0 shortly after. Proving lots of people wrong this season.

Alexis 8.5

Superb cross for Walcott’s first and nice pass to release him for the second. Missed a couple of great chances to get himself on the scoresheet but was excellent once again.


Oxlade-Chamberlain (6), Elneny (6), Gibbs (6)
