Arsenal Player Ratings vs West Brom
Wojciech Szczesny 6 – Had nothing much to do in entire 90 mins but made one important save to deny West Brom from scoring.
Bacary Sagna 6.5 – May be his last game at Emirates, but Mr.Consistency gave his 100% and was comfortable both in attack and defence.
Per Mertesacker 7 – Leader-ed the defence well and also neutralized Westbrom’s aerial threat from set pieces and crosses.
Laurent Koscielny 7 – Made lot of good interceptions and kept things tidy and disciplined at the back.
Nacho Monreal 6 – Spaniard had a decent game but was substituted by Vermaelen after getting booked.
Mathieu Flamini 6 – Offensively not much effective but did lot of tracking back and controlled the game in the middle of the park.
Mikel Arteta 6.5 – Kept things simple with his accurate short passes. Rarely lost possession.
Santi Cazorla 6.5 – Flashes of brilliance but overall, an average game considering his usual high standards.
Mesut Ozil 8 – In-form German did all the running and playmaking today. With FA cup fianl and World Cup coming up, right time for Ozil to hit form again.
Lukas Podolski 6.5 – Hit the post once but struggled to find enough room to hit few of his trademark Left footed thunderbolts. Decent game from German.
Olivier Giroud 8 – Man of the match. Scored the only goal of the game with a superb header. Impressed throughout the game.
Kim Kallstrom 5.5
Tomas Rosicky 6
Thomas Vermaelen 6
