RATINGS: My Ratings From Arsenal’s 3-0 Win Over Hull

By on April 20, 2014

Arsenal produced an excellent performance to beat Hull City 3-0 this afternoon and move four points clear in fourth place. Here are my ratings:

Szczesny: 7/10 – Collected several crosses well and made a couple of important saves in the first half.

Sagna: 7/10 – Solid at the back and joined in attack when needed.

Mertesacker: 7/10 – Gave little away at the back after a nervy opening 15 minutes. Almost scored a fourth with a header.

Koscielny: 7.5/10 – Bossed it in defence and read the game so well, making countless interceptions.

Monreal: 6.5/10 – The weak link in the first half but far better after the break.

Arteta: 7/10 – Steady performance and battled well against an overly-physical Hull midfield. Lost a tooth for the cause.

Ramsey: 8.5/10 – How we’ve missed him. Wonderfully taken goal and great assists for both Podolski’s goals. Completely changed the way we play.

Cazorla: 7.5/10 – Nice assist for Rambo’s opening goal and was lovely to see him linking up with the likes of Ozil again.

Ozil: 7.5/10 – Oozed class at times. Some lovely passing and interplay, and played a sublime ball in the build up to the opener. Should have won a penalty. Great to have him back.

Podolski: 8/10 – Hammer left foot on show again as he smashed home the second and cooly slotted home the third after the break. Four goals in two games from him.

Giroud: 7/10 – Lovely ball in the build up for the second goal. Didn’t really threaten to get on the scoresheet himself but looked happier with better players around.


Flamini: 6/10 – On for Ozil and shored things up in midfield.

The Ox: 7/10 –  Great impact in the final 15. His pace caused problems and should have won a pen.

Sanogo: N/A

This was a big win and a huge step towards securing a top four finish. It also gives us a boost ahead of the FA Cup final but I doubt it will be this easy again at Wembley.

What were your thoughts from the game?

    Great performance by arsenal. Though I felt Mertesacker and Koscielny were a little restless today. For me Monreal did the best job he could. He played sensible footbaLl and didn’t ignore his defensive responsibilities. He certainly left the attacking part to Podolski. Sagna played better today. But he seems like he lost a lot of his pace. He isn’t fast anymore. I prefer Sagna as a CB nw. Cause hvin a slow RB is nt the answer for arsenal. Ramsey was fantastic. He showed what we have been missing for months. He makes an effort to get in spaces which is so important. Our attack was well organized. Poldi was his usual self. Give him a chance on his left foot and he scores.
