[Player Ratings] The Ox shines but Ozil flops as Arsenal beat Hull

By on February 11, 2017

Alexis Sanchez scored both goals as Arsenal secured a vital 2-0 win over Hull City at the Emirates this afternoon.

Here are my ratings:

Cech  7/10 | Made a smart stop to deny Niasse an equaliser. Vital save at an important time of the game.

Bellerin  7/10 | Was solid in defence and got in to some promising positions going forward. Cross could have been better though.

Mustafi  7/10 | A much better performance from the German. Read the game well and made a couple of important challenges.

Koscielny  7/10 | Caused a bit of trouble by Markovic’s pace but overall he had a solid game. Marshalled the back line well.

Gibbs  6.5/10 | Lucky to escape a red card midway through the second half after wiping out Markovic as the last man. Otherwise I though he well at left-back.

Oxlade-Chamberlain  8/10 | Another very positive display in the middle of the park. Some great runs and clearly keen to impress but perhaps a few too many Hollywood long balls. Still MOTM for me.

Coquelin  6/10 | Far too many misplaced passes in the first half but improved after the break. Still shouldn’t be near the first team once other players come back.

Walcott  6/10 | Another frustrating afternoon for Theo and he showed it following a spat with Maguire that got him booked. Only one half-chance to speak of.

Ozil  6/10 | Very sloppy performance from the German. Oddly, his touch wasn’t up to scratch and he missed a couple of decent chances. Poor form continues.

Iwobi  6/10 | Fortunate to keep his place and didn’t do enough to suggest he should start at Bayern. Passing was poor.

Sanchez  7.5/10 | On ‘hand’ to break the deadlock in the 35th minute with a fortunate ‘handball’ goal on the line. Drilled home the penalty to seal the three points.


Elneny  6/10 | On to shore things up midway through the second half.

Welbeck N/A | Good to see him get another 10 minutes under his belt.

Perez N/A | Won the penalty as his goal-bound header was saved on the line.


It was far from a convincing performance as we were still well below our best but the result is the most important thing. Let’s hope this win gives the lads a bit of confidence as we’re going to have to play a lot better against Bayern on Wednesday.
