PATHETIC | Players Ratings For The Most Horrific Performance Of The Season For The Gunners

Arsenal, Chelsea, manager. Europa League final

Arsenal disappoint as a second bite of the Champions league cherry passes them by. So the post-mortem begins. Just how did Arsenal lose so emphatically to an ordinary Chelsea side ? one that they smothered in their return meeting in the Premier League.

The answer is simple, Chelsea performed for 45 minutes and exploited Arsenal’s obvious weaknesses. They worked together and showed desire and passion, something that Arsenal lack in abundance and they can’t buy in a transfer window.

So let’s do the scores for the last and probably the most disappointing game of the season.

Cech – 3/10
And so he departs, time caught up with him but the defence didn’t help. Needed to get down earlier but slow to react when it came to the crunch.

Sokratis- 5/10
Looked ready, willing and able and gave it everything but was overrun. Koscielny and Monreal haven’t got the pace to fill in the holes anymore.

Koscielny- 3/10
Very little contribution to the game apart from an interception to stop Giroud adding to his goal tally. Probably his last performance in an Arsenal shirt.

Monreal -3/10
Been saying it for a while, he’s legs and form have gone, Arsenal need a new left back and should be looking already for one in the market.

Maitland-Niles – 6/10
Was a real threat in the first half but had to defend for all he was worth in the second half. Gave away a penalty but collectively the defence was on holiday.

Torreira-  3/10
Not at the races, looked a forlorn figure, especially after the substitution. He wasn’t alone in a shocking performance for Arsenal.

Xhaka- 3/10
Did nothing right and nothing wrong. Spent ages running around without any cutting edge or purpose. Made up the numbers.

Kolasinac- 2/10
Another no show, added very little to the left flank for Arsenal and when he did, his touch went. A squad player in emergencies.

Ozil- 1/10
Sold himself short again. Meaningless short passes for the majority of his spell on the pitch. No inspiration or effort. Gets a mark of one for the temerity of claiming his wages.

Aubameyang- 3/10
A poor reflection of the striker who tormented Valencia. I would have hooked him 10 minutes into the second half. Very little to feed off from the middle or flanks but clogged a couple.

Lacazette- 6/10
God loves a trier, one certain penalty claim ignored and could have been awarded another for being strangled with his own shirt.
Poor service but tried until there was no point.

Iwobi- 6/10
Just for the goal. Looked lively, should have come on sooner for Arsenal.

Guendouzi- 4/10
Chased and passed but nothing fancy or creative. Chelsea were happy to see him come on.

Willock- 4/10
Showed flashes and should have got a goal. Little bit out of his depth given the circumstances of playing with a bunch of amateurs.


The Highbury Flyer
Anti Kroenke , anti Gazidis but always a gooner. Still wishes he could watch from the stands at the Highbury library.
