Arsenal 3 – West Ham 0: Player Ratings

That’s exactly what we needed after our recent run of form, especially with Liverpool dropping points against Bournemouth.

 

Emiliano Martinez – 7
Kept a clean sheet for his first start of the season and managed to make two good saves.

 

Hector Bellerin – 7.5
Should have scored and picked up a stupid yellow card. However, he played well and is starting to look like his former self, although he’s still managing to get beaten for pace which would of never have happened last season.

 

Shkodran Mustafi – 7.5
Managed to cope well with Andy Carroll, also brought the ball forward well from the back.

 

Gabriel – 8
Was calm and collected throughout the whole game, was one of his best games in an Arsenal shirt. Hopefully, we can see more of this of this Gabriel.

 

Nacho Monreal – 7
He really should have had two penalties, the officials in the match were really diabolical! Although, he had another solid display, following on from the City game.

 

Mohamed Elneny – 7
Got in some great positions and kept the play following from back to front.

 

Granit Xhaka – 8
Starting to really come into his own, worked well with Elneny and his distribution was superb moving play from defence to attack.

 

Theo Walcott  – 8
Captained the Gunners and worked hard throughout the night, also managed to not throw a hissy fit when he got substituted.

 

Mesut Ozil – 9
Got an assist and goal, so you can’t really ask much more from a player. His confidence is starting to come back, which is great to see.

 

Alexis Sanchez – 7
Whenever he got the ball he tried to make something happen, which is what you want to see from a player. However, he did give the ball away a few times.

 

Danny Welbeck – 7
Never really got into the game, but who can blame him, as he’s still trying to get back to full fitness.

 

Substitutes
Olivier Giroud – 7

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 7

Aaron Ramsey – 6
