Fantastic Ramsey – The Best And The Worst Rated Arsenal Players From The 0-0 Draw Vs Chelsea

published :

Full Time: Chelsea 0-0 Arsenal

Arsenal managed to come out with a point at the Stamford Bridge, as they played out a goalless draw against reigning champions Chelsea in matchweek 5 of the Premier League.  

It was a testing game for both teams, with neither giving an inch at the back, while not really showing a great deal of clinical nature in the attack. Arsenal did come close on a number of occasions through Alexandre Lacazette, Aaron Ramsey who hit the post, and Shkodran Mustafi who had a goal ruled out for offside. The game petered out to a 0-0 finish, with both teams coming away with a single point.

Here’s how the Arsenal players fared on the day:

Arsenal Player Ratings 

Petr Cech – 7/10 

Made a great save to deny Pedro and made a stunning stop of Eden Hazard’s venomous shot in the second period. It was a good display from the veteran.

Shkodran Mustafi – 8/10 

A great display at the back from the German, never really giving Alvaro Morata an inch. Had a goal ruled out for offside in the second half.

Laurent Koscielny – 8/10 

Strong and combative performance by the captain, who led from the front. Made a couple of important challenges late in the game.  

Nacho Monreal – 7/10 

Has really grown into the role of a centre-back. Solid and steady, and was always available to cover his partners.  

Hector Bellerin – 7/10 

Made a couple of strong runs past Marcos Alonso in the first-half. Was more controlled in the second period. Got booked. 

Aaron Ramsey – 8/10 

A major improvement from his hapless display against Liverpool. Made his trademark forward forays, but never really left his defence vulnerable. Unlucky to strike the post after a great run.   

Granit Xhaka – 7/10 

Worked hard in an improved display. There were a couple of wayward passes, but overall decent.  

Sead Kolasinac – 6.5/10 

Has added a great deal of power and energy to Arsenal’s left flank. Had a driven effort saved. Booked late on.

Alex Iwobi – 6/10 

Was in the team instead of the injured Mesut Ozil. Iwobi put in a shift without impacting the game a great deal in the attack.  

Danny Welbeck – 6.5/10 

Should have opened the scoring early in the game when he headed wide. Grafted hard for his team before being taken off injured.

Alexandre Lacazette – 6/10

Another player who worked really hard, but couldn’t take his chances. Had a shot saved by Thibaut Courtois and blasted over the bar once, with the goal gaping.

Substitutes

Alexis Sanchez – 6/10

Replaced Lacazette in the 66th minute. Doesn’t look at his sharpest yet.

Olivier Giroud – 6/10

On for the injured Welbeck. No real service for him to attack.

Mohamed Elneny – N/A 

Came on for Iwobi for the final ten minutes. Booked.
