We choked again! Man Utd – Arsenal Player Ratings

Wonderful Jack

Almunia: Great game from the Spaniard. Not at fault for any of the goals and even kept the scoreline respectable. We don’t have any major worries if he can keep this sort of form. A big IF! 8

Sagna: Defended quite well and could have got at least 3 assists with some dangerous crosses he put into the box. Not a bad outing by any standard. 7

Djourou + Koscielny: The pair could have done a bit better as both goals we conceded were just cheap goals. They need to do some work on their positioning…oh pardon me, Djourou is apparently out for the rest of the season, that means we got Squillaci and Koscielny for the run in***great news*** 6

Gibbs: Could have defended better at times. He was more efficient going forward, and should have put in more balls into the box for Chammy and RVP to feed on. 6

Diaby: It’s Diaby…nuff said! 4

Denilson:Someone said he’s trying his best to be like Man United super-flop, Kleberson. I think he’s going to be worse. He did not make one threatening forward pass all game, did not close down Valencia early for the second goal. So much for special talent! 3

Wilshere: EVERY Arsenal player needs to take a look at this lad to see what it really means to wear the red shirt (or the yellow one, as the case may be). He was full of running, tackling and dribbling. He played like the oldest head in the midfield. A future captain for sure. 8
Arshavin: He’s had better days. He put in effort but his end product left a lot to desire. He got into some promising positions but could not utilize the opportunities. 6

Nasri: Just like Wilshere, he had a good game and looked our best bet for a goal. We looked to him to lead the team and he did not really disappoint. 7

Robin Van Persie: Could not do much, he tried his best when he got the ball but he was usually crowded out upfront. 6.5


Chamakh: Give Nikky B the same chances he had, and you bet we would have celebrated at least one goal. He seems lost at the moment and he has this annoying habit of passing the ball back every time, even in our half! 5

Rosicky: Not a bad outing, tested Van der Saar with a ferocious albeit straight shot. 5.5
Ramsey:So good to see him back. Came on for Diaby and ultimately had to play the final 10mins at center back. 5

So, we lose 3 trophies in the space of 3 weeks…familiar scenes, eh?

Keep the faith lads, at least we still have a say in where the League title goes come May. If I were you though, I won’t raise my hopes too high.

From wherever you are watching, keep believing. It’s the least you can do.
9jabred says so!
