Gunners Nail Hammers : The Player Ratings

Three Goals, three points and a near flawless performance. What more could you ask for? Here are the ratings. Enjoy and drop your comments.

Fine one handed save from the young stopper in the first half and another in the second half. Solid game, rarely troubled.

He won’t have any easier games than this as he was a passenger at the back and did well to join the attack.

Bar one slip at the back, he shackled the West Ham forward line with relative ease. Good to see him getting back to back games again this season.

Won all of his aerial battles and easily one of his more relaxed performances. Shows that the problem is when he’s paired with Squillaci

Repeatedly caught out at the back but thank God we didn’t pay for any of it. Linked up well with Walcott on the right.

He was so calm on the ball and did not even have to venture forward like he loves to, could have been different if Parker had played. Good game.

Rarely gave away the ball, his constant change of position with Fabregas really caused troubles for West Ham in the middle of the park.

Hitting Top gear wasn’t required today from the skippo as the game was easy in truth. Controlled the game, sprayed passes efficiently and split open the defence on numerous occasions.

Quiet in the opening half and only lit up in the second half after moving into the middle. Still managed to showcase his dribbling prowess. Good to see him back

Wish I could give him a higher rating seeing as he had a hand in all three goals by setting up the opener, scoring the second and winning the penalty that led to the 3rd goal. All action performance from the English man.

Man of the match performance from the dutch man. Like Walcott he had a hand in all three goals too, scoring two and assisting one with a strong run into the box. Was everywhere today and his movement was too much for the West Ham defence. An absolute delight to watch.


Did nothing noteworthy in the few minutes he was on.



***Congratulations Walcott and RVP, Walcott for scoring his 10th goal on his 100th league appearance and RVP for scoring his 50th league goal.

From wherever you’re reading. Have a swell night.

  1. Sorry. But I dis agree with ur ratings on Jack wilshere, song and fabregas. They deserve higher. Good night

  2. Good performance, wish to see more of this result

  3. @ Ope : if I give them any higher, it would seem like its bias. + I tink 7 is good enough seeing as they hardly broke sweat.

  4. wilshere – 8.5
    nasri – 8
    Koscielny- 7.5
    Chezzer – 8

  5. Wilshere 8.5??? For what?? So what do you give RVP then.

  6. @ sam I really don’t understand what Jim is talking about. Maybe he needs to elaborate.
