Arsenal 5– Lincoln City 0: Player Ratings

posted in: Player Ratings | 0

That’s exactly what the Gunners were after, a convincing win and a place at Wembley, with one step closer to silverware.

 

Petr Cech – 7
Didn’t have much to do, however, he made some strong saves in the first half to keep Lincoln out.

 

Hector Bellerin – 8
Was great going forward with the ball, made us a real threat down the right-hand side.

 

Shkodran Mustafi – 7
Lincoln didn’t trouble the centre back, the only incident he was involved in was when he got an elbow in the face early on.

 

Laurent Koscielny – 7.5
Played well, whether that’s because the Lincoln offence was poor or his defending was top notch.

 

Kieran Gibbs – 8
Played well down the left-hand side and managed to get an assist for the own goal.

 

Aaron Ramsey – 8.5
He couldn’t finish any of his chances, although he still managed to get a goal and have a 92% successful pass rate.

 

Granit Xhaka – 7
Managed to get the play going from far back and had a great passing range, but like normal he managed to pick up a yellow card early on.

 

Alex Oxlade Chamberlain– 6
Was doing well, but a hamstring opportunity forced him off before half-time.

 

Alexis Sanchez – 9.5
Played great in the second half and mediocre in the first. Managed to get a goal and his exceptional free kick rocked the woodwork.

 

Olivier Giroud – 8
Got a goal and managed to hold up the player well for the other forwards.

 

Theo Walcott – 8.5
One of our most threatening forwards and managed to break the deadlock early on, so that the goals kept on coming in.

 

Substitutes
Lucas Perez – 6.5
Mesut Ozil – 7.5
Francis Coquelin – 7
