RATINGS Chambers 3, Giroud 4: Arsenal Player Ratings From Stoke Loss

By on December 6, 2014

Once again, we totally froze away at Stoke, failed to deal with the hostile atmosphere or their physical presence and come away off the back of a disappointing 3-2 defeat.

This is how I’d rate the players performances:

Martinez – 5/10 – Made one stunning save but was offered little protection from his defence.

Bellerin – 4/10 – Lost his footing to gift Crouch an early goal. Looked well out his depth. Subbed at half time.

Chambers  – 3/10 – Failed to deal with the early cross for the first goal and was poor throughout the game before being sent off for a stupid second yellow.

Mertesacker  – 4/10 – Woeful defending for the second goal. Just doesn’t look the same player without Kos next to him.

Gibbs – 5/10 – The opening two goals both came from his side. Offered little going forward. Awful crosses.

Flamini  – 4/10 – Offered zero protection for the defence and was bullied by the Stoke midfield for long periods.

Ramsey – 5/10 – Woeful in the first half but improved after the break when he scored a lovely goal.

The Ox – 5/10 – At least he had a go at running at the Stoke defence on the odd occasion. Didn’t always work out too well though.

Alexis  – 5/10 – Survived his first trip to the Britannia, just, after being put in a choke hold by Adam. Hit the post when he really should have scored.

Cazorla  – 5/10 – Tucked away his penalty well but wasn’t a threat in the final third at all otherwise.

Giroud  – 4/10 – Wasn’t he supposed to cope with the Stoke bully-boys? He failed. And he missed a glorious chance to make it 1-1. If that goes in, I think we go on to win the game.


Welbeck – 5/10 – Forced a decent save from Begovic but did little else.

Podolski – 4/10 – Did he touch the ball?

Campbell – N/A – On for two minutes. Why not earlier Arsene?

Were my ratings harsh? What were your marks for the players?

    Wenger should by this Stoke defeat see his tactical ineptitude as a bane to Arsenal success …we can’t even play the type of football we’ve been known for due to AW penchant for drop-out players I think they want play him (AW)out of his job since he lacked what it takes to impact and bring out the best from his lame-footed players.!badnight wenger.

    Nothing can change Wenger. He is past his redemption and nothing good can come from his overstay (except filling the bank account). THAT IS A FACT. BLIND mercenaries that are on the damn prof pay check are the only barrier for us to a new era without the failure specialist.

    Plea I’ve seen every other manager is better than wenger. Best option is replacements. Preferable Diego semiome of Att. Madrid. Wenger should go.

    Arsene Wenger should be brought to the Emirate stadium and flogged publicly for the shame , insults , heart breaks and embarassment he has brought to the club and fans world wide. ” imagine the thought of renewing the signing of a player who has not played a match for two sessions . His brain is tumor infested. Always thinking of french connection
