[Player Ratings] Arsenal 2-0 WBA: Monreal & Lacazette impress for Gunners

By on September 25, 2017


Arsenal eased to a 2-0 victory over West Bromwich Albion at the Emirates tonight thanks to a brace from Alexandre Lacazette.

Here are my ratings:

Cech  7/10 | Great save to tip a Rodriguez shot on to the post at 0-0. Vital stop and didn’t put a foot wrong all game.

Koscielny  7/10 | A solid performance from the skipper. Dealt well with a physical West Brom side.

Mustafi  6.5/10 | Very fortunate not to give away a stone-wall penalty at 0-0 but was otherwise solid.

Monreal  8/10 | Superb goal-line clearance to keep it at 1-0 and was excellent all night. His best performance of the season.

Bellerin  7/10 | Involved lots down the right and wasn’t really troubled defensively.

Xhaka  6.5/10 | Poor in the first half as he gave away possession countless times but improved after the break when he controlled the game.

Elneny  6.5/10 | Another bang average performance from Elneny. He isn’t great at anything and shouldn’t be a regular starter but he’s a useful squad player.

Kolasinac  7/10 | A monster down the left at times. Got in to some great positions going forward and was solid at the back.

Ramsey  7.5/10 | Won the penalty and made some excellent runs but still think he’s better utilised in central midfield rather than in attack.

Sanchez  7/10 | Mixed game from Alexis. Was sloppy at times, gave away possession cheaply and looked rusty but was also involved in some excellent moments.

Lacazette  8/10 | On hand to head home the opener from close range and dispatched his penalty expertly for 2-0. A proper poacher who’ll score plenty this season. Great movement and work ethic too.


Giroud  6/10 | Not too much to speak of from his late cameo.

Ozil  6.5/10 | A couple of lovely passes after surprisingly being left out.


A vital win considering all our rivals won over the weekend and it was great to see Lacazette getting among the goals once again. Next up is a trip to Belarus to face BATE on Thursday….
