Tottenham vs Arsenal : The Player Ratings
Posted by Escobar
“Our little brother, all grown up” was the tweet I sent as the final whistle went inside the Lane. What used to be our stomping ground has now become a no-go-zone for us. From certain 3 points to not even certain of one point.
AW sprung a surprise by starting Coquelin in one of the few changes to the squad that saw Walcott, Gibbs and Gervinho return. Below are the player ratings.
Where would we be on the log without this 21 year old with Bulletproof confidence? Someone said in the championship and I agree. He was a beast. Doesn’t deserve to be at Arsenal on this form
Was asleep for the opening goal as he did nothing to prevent van der vaart getting an easy goal.
Handled the threat of Adebayor well, played the offside trap to perfection on every occasion. Decent game
Song – 7.5
High rating because of the surging run in the build up to the goal. The assist made him look like a winger. Also immense at the back and made sure Defoe had a frustrating afternoon.
Gibbs – 5.5
Still looks suspect when defending. Left the defence exposed in the first half. Got better as the game wore on but was no where when Walker scored.
Coquelin – 7.5
This kid had an old man’s performance, you’d be forgiven for thinking he was 28. Absolute beast in the middle of the park. Won the ball repeatedly, broke down attacks and passed well.
Arteta – 5.5
Poor signing so far. I don’t know what to blame, he hasn’t changed us in anyway. My only prayer is he gets better.
Ramsey – 5
Yes he scored, yes he gave us a lifeline to build upon but my oh my was he poor. One would think he was playing with a blindfold on. Gave away the ball repeatedly.
Walcott – 5
Poor. Abject. Invisible(watch out, I’ll repeat these words with Gervinho). Had two efforts on goal and did nothing after. Did not defend and was rightly subbed off. Capello needs to stop coming to watch him. He never plays well when that happens.
Gervinho – 4
Poor Abject. Invisible. Sh*t. I can continue. How he lasted longer than he did on the pitch is beyond me.
Van Persie – 6
Continues to suffer alone upfront. Lack of proper service makes him look like Chamakh on occasions. At this rate forget him signing a new deal.
Jenkinson – 3
Arshavin – 3
Another poor weekend. How many more? How low are we gonna sink before changes occur?? Surely Wenger must go? Or buy new players? Let’s know how you feel in the comments.
