Ratings: Arsenal 0-0 Chelsea: How The Boys Rated

By on April 26, 2015

Arsenal were held to a 0-0 draw by league leaders Chelsea at the Emirates this afternoon. As predicted, the visitors had very-much a defence-first approach and although we had the majority of possession, we couldn’t find a winner.

Here are my ratings:

Ospina  6/10 – Smart save to deny Ramires but should arguably have given a penalty away for wiping out Oscar.

Bellerin  7/10 – Another mature performance from the young Spaniard. Eager to get forward and kept Hazard shackled.

Mertesacker  7/10 – Made an important tackle in the first half and could have won it after the break but sliced his shot wide.

Koscielny  7/10 – Lost Oscar in the first half but was otherwise excellent once again.

Monreal  7/10 – Showed again why he’s currently ahead of Gibbs. Solid in defence and created our best chance late on.

Coquelin  7/10 – Another good display in a big game. Battled well against the Chelsea attack and prevented any break-away’s.

Cazorla  6/10 – Missed a great chance to grab a winner but was neat and tidy in possession.

Ramsey  6/10 – Wasted on the right again and kept drifting inside. I hope this ‘experiment’ ends soon.

Ozil  7.5/10 – Some lovely touches in the first half but faded a little after the break. Still involved in much of our positive play going forwards.

Alexis  7/10 – Lively early on but his final ball and finish was lacking at times.

Giroud  6/10 – Struggled to get himself in the game and was easily dealt with by Terry and Cahill to be honest.


Welbeck 5/10 – Missed a great chance to win it at the death.
