Arsenal 2 Hull 0: Gunners player ratings
Arsene Wenger’s men recorded another win on Wednesday night, beating Hull 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium.
The victory keeps Arsenal’s momentum going, and in truth the Emirates Stadium side were relatively comfortable in victory.
Here are the Arsenal player ratings for the game.
Wojciech Szczesny – 7/10
Didn’t have a huge amount to do, but what he did do was done well. He showed bravery when sliding in with Sagbo, and most importantly kept another clean sheet.
Nacho Monreal – 7/10
Got an opportunity to start ahead of Gibbs, and looked solid throughout. Did what he had to in defence and took up strong positions going forward. His final ball was lacking at times, but showed that he can be trusted when called upon.
Laurent Koscielny – 8/10
Arsenal’s best defender, Koscielny dominated proceedings against the Hull attackers and barely put a foot wrong. Covered for Mertesacker when required.
Per Mertesacker – 7/10
Another commanding performance from the Germany international, who won his fair share of challenges and played his role in the clean sheet. Did look vulnerable at times due to a lack of pace however.
Carl Jenkinson – 7/10
A great ball for the opening goal was the highlight of the match for the youngster, who looked solid. Needs more time on the pitch to build his confidence.
Tomas Rosicky – 7/10
Put in an industrious display and kept possession well without overly threatening. Provided energy and always available to receive a pass.
Mesut Ozil – 9/10
Arguably his best performance in an Arsenal shirt, the German was the driving force behind the team’s attack. Had too much movement, vision and ability for Hull and got a goal for his considerable troubles.
Aaron Ramsey – 8/10
Another supreme showing from the midfield general, Ramsey provided an assist and showed tireless energy from the first minute. Gunners’ fans will hope he can keep up his excellent current form.
Mathieu Flamini – 8/10
A commanding performance, Flamini’s presence allowed the likes of Ramsey and Ozil to dominate things in the final third. Broke up opposition play and protected his back four well.
Santi Cazorla – 7/10
Played more of a significant role than he has of late, and linked up well with Ozil. He really should have got his name on the scoresheet, but looked more dangerous in the clash than he has in the last month.
Nicklas Bendtner – 7/10
Got a chance to put himself in the shop window, and scored an early goal. Linked up with the midfield quite well, but should have had more goals.
Jack Wilshere – 7/10
Looked like he wanted to prove a point when he was introduced, and was very lively. Unlucky not to provide the inspiration for a third goal.
Theo Walcott – 6/10
Looked a bit off the pace, and did not make his trademark runs off the ball. Needs more time on the pitch to get back to his best.
Mikel Arteta – N/A – steady performance in the dwindling moments of the game.
