Arsenal Vs Wigan : The Player Ratings + Pick your MOTM

So as it was in the last round our first goal came via an own goal, fortunate? Or just reward for dominating play? I’ll go for the latter. The second was no gift as Vela who had a mixed match laid an assist for Nikky B. Let’s see how our boys fared.

Chezzer – 7
Quiet evening for the young pole, barely got his gloves dirty.

Eboue – 4
Sorry but he was very very poor and assuming he was up against a better plsyer it could have been worse. Despite that he lost the duel against Moses repeatedly.

Djorou – 7
Good game from the young CB and he rarely gave Boselli room to breathe. Doubt if he broke a sweat .

Kozzer – 7
Also had it easy tonight,so easy he could afford to bring the ball out of defence numerous times.

Gibbs – 7.5
Willing runner, energetic and showed good recovery each time Wigan broke. His forrays forward were at times mesmerising. Linked up well with Vela

Wilshere – 8
Call me biased but behind Nasri and probably Cham29 this has been our best player this season. His performance and role mirrored that of Milan great, Pirlo. Future Captain???

Denilson – 7
Assured performance alongside Jackie, gave away a few passes in the first half but overall a good performance.

Vela – 6.5
How do you contrive to miss 3 excellent chances?? Makes me remember the four one-on-one chances Bendtner had against Burnley 2 years ago. Well he got an assist so kudos.

Theo – 6.5
Not the special showing he promised but seeing as he started in midfield he did reasonably good and got an assist for the opener.

RVP – 8
Would you believe he had only played sparring roles this season before today? He held up play well, shared the ball well, neat flicks and deft touches and good delivery from setpieces. what more could you ask for? A goal? who cares he came through the games unscathed.
Star Man for me

Nikky B – 7
Largely anonymous after missing that sitter in the opening minute. Got into dangerous positions and at the same time he held on to the ball too much a la Diaby.


Nasri – 5
Should hav scored his 10th of the season but rounded the keeper when a shot or chip would have done the deed.

Eastmond – N/A

Not a vintage performance but we did the deed. Semi-final draw awaits. Good to see RVP back. From wherever you are reading, hope you enjoyed the game? Do have a swell night.

Escobar says so
