[Player Ratings] Arsenal 2-0 Reading: The Ox & Gibbs Impress

By on October 25, 2016

Arsenal booked their place in the quarter finals of the EFL Cup thanks to a relatively comfortable 2-0 victory over Reading at the Emirates on Tuesday night with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scoring both goals.

Here are my ratings:

Martinez 7

Excellent save from a free kick to secure his clean sheet late on. A few ‘Hollywood’ saves but didn’t put a foot wrong.

Jenkinson 7

Great to see him back playing again. Almost made a dream return with an early goal. Solid display overall.

Holding 7

Strong and confident at the back. Going to be a real player in the future.

Gabriel 6.5

A few shaky moments and gave away a couple of dangerous free kicks.

Gibbs 7.5

Solid display from Gibbsy. He was sound defensively and got forward when he could.

Elneny 7

Went close with a powerful shot and put in a few dangerous free kicks.

Maitland-Niles 7

Encouraging performance from the youngster. He was strong in the tackle and eager to push forward.

Oxlade-Chamberlain 8

Opened the scoring with a fine goal and lashed home the second from the edge of the area. Some of his general play was a little frustrating but you can’t argue with his two goals.

Reine-Adelaide 7

Lively start from the young attacker and he showed some lovely touches but faded after the break when he tired a little.

Iwobi 6.5

Showed his class in flashes but his final ball and finishing needs to improve. Missed a great chance tonight to make it 2-0.

Lucas 6.5

Missed a great chance to open the scoring when put clean through midway through the first half but opted to pass and messed it up. Was a danger at times but limped off with a foot injury.


Giroud 6.5 – Forced the keeper in to an excellent save with a close range header. Few rusty touches.

Willock N/A
