We will rate our players after every match, here is Arsenal Insider players ratings:
Petr Cech: Nothing much to do. The post was his colleague as well. 7/10
Shkodran Mustafi: Nothing much to do. His bad marking though was almost leading to Brighton’s first goal 6/10
Nacho Monreal: His first ever goal at the Emirates Stadium. Good defense as well. 8/10
Hector Bellerin: Calm match. He was active offensively. 7/10
Sead Kolasinac: Nothing match to do defensively, he was active inside the 18 yard box. 7/10
Granit Xhaka: Not his best match, but was average. 6/10
Aaron Ramsey: He is better as a midfielder than a winger. Dangerous offensively as well. 7/10
Alex Iwobi: Is he really injured? active and drilling all the match, and an amazing goal. 8/10
Alexis Sanchez: Most active player in the second half. World class back pass that led to Iwobi’s goal. Tried to score several times but all his shots were hardly blocked. Still not his best form. He isn’t happy and concentrating like before. 8/10
Alexander Lacazette: Smashed the left post with a volley. He wanted to score his 5th goal but couldn’t and was subbed off for Giroud. He was a bit selfish as well in the 33rd minute and 67th minute, where he decided to shot instead of passing.
Mohammed Elneny: Made his defensive role. in 10 minutes. 6/10
Man of the match: I think Sanchez was the best especially in the second half, most of the players were average. Sanchez had 7 shots on target, more than any other player. His last pass to Giroud shows why he was the most dangerous. However, that’s not the best form of Sanchez.
Arsene Wenger (manager): Became the most manager winning against different Premier League teams with 45 teams. He was able to make the team more active offensively. 7/10
