Five Star Arsenal Spank Orient : The Player Ratings.
Posted by Escobar
Virtually untested throughout the match.
Going forward and defending he did very ok, was caught out of position a few times but it did not cost us.
Decent, protected the goalie well with Miquel by his side
Miquel – 7
Rewarded the boss with a strong showing in defence. Needs to add body mass to his arsenal though.
Gibbs – 8
Solid showing from the english man, two assists, one directly and the other by winning a penalty.
Denilson – 7
Clean and comfortable in possession, no hurried passing and mistakes. Good to see that
Diaby – 8
Best midfielder on show, completed 47 of his 47 passes in the first half alone, and ventured forward when allowed. Hooked off in the 2nd half
Rosicky – 7.5
Started brightly and provided the assist for the opening goal. Unlucky to be withdrawn due to injury.
Henderson – 7.5
Highly impressed with how the young man handled himself. His first appearance for the senior team, out of position but his industry and passing was pleasing to the eye.
Chamakh – 7.5
Asides from grabbing the opener it was a typical Chamakh performance, laboured and always looking to pass instead of leading from the front.
Bendtner – 9 **MOTM**
65 minute hat-trick, Absolute class act tonight, way above his fellow striker. Started out on the right but scored all his goals when he switched to the centre or the left. He was virtually unplayable, maybe he wasn’t pleased to have been benched for the Carling Cup final. Great way to make a statement.
Clichy – 7
Came on and scored a belter of a goal for his second Arsenal goal.
Nasri – 6
Came on with the game won, had a few openings to extend the lead which he spurned.
Wilshere – 6
Same as Nasri, thrown on to stretch his legs.
There you have it folks, we’re into the FA cup quarter finals and United at Old trafford awaits us. Let’s get them. From wherever you’re reading have a great night. Cheers.
