Wigan vs Arsenal Ratings : 4 To The One Man Team, 0 To The Team With 11 Men

Are we still a one man team? I doubt so, with Ramsey bagging 95% completed passes, Vermaelen grabbing a goal and an assist, Gervinho & Walcott with a goal & assist respectively BUT the star of the team & on the day Van Persie shone brightest. Today’s ratings is by a guest writer Tosin Alao ( @clownytee )

Revelation of the century did not have much to do,but was at the top of his game when he was called to action.

Vermaelen 8.5
Yet again arguably one of the best defenders in the EPL and even in Europe. 3goals in 4games for the Belgian,simply outstanding.

Mertesacker 8
Impressed by the German today. Always said the giant is a very intelligent defender and he made a very important tackle,cutting out an attack for wigan

Do we have a new right back?because I could not tell the difference. Great display today and will be a sin if he doesn’t start for France come EURO 2012

Was a bit uncomfortable with him early in the game,but he had a solid game overall. He has to cut out holding on to the ball for too long when he can save the defence and clear the ball out. Overall, solid display from the Brazilian.

WOW!!!!Solid display from the spaniard, pity spain have so many quality players playing in the same position. Cracking goal from him”dirty stinking Goal as I would say”. Faces his former club next week,let’s hope he can break Evertonian hearts

Great defensive display from Alex,had to limp off at the final minutes of the game,let’s hope it is nothing serious. And yes we have him in January as Cameroun did not qualify for the African Cup of Nations.

Great display,was obvious he wanted to get a goal in respect of Gary Speed(RIP),hard worker and went into tackles. Better display than that from last week. keep it up RAMBO

Walcott!Walcott!!Walcott!!!,keeps impressing this season,was a problem for d wigan full backs and he created the goal for Robin. Hope he stays injury free.

Forehead, as he is popularly called leaves us in January and has stated he will love to win the 3 remaining games he has to play in before he leaves to join Ivory coast. Had a great game and rounded it off with a goal.

Van Persie9
Captain Fantastic!!! Arsenal have been criticised of late to be a one man team because of the goal scoring form of this man. We forget players who create the goal for him and today we proved them wrong by having three other goal scorers and van persie assisting some of them. He bagged the fourth goal thanks to an impressive run and composure from walcott. Great season so far for the Dutch wizard.



Nothing much to say about the russian,had little time but was still sluggish in his display.

Came in as a sub and got into a tackle that was not needed and got himself a yellow.

Missed a chance he should have buried,I still think he deserves more games.

3 points in the bag and another solid display and Van persie show. Have a great day.

  3. We were a bit shaky at the back at times but a good performance.. We kept our cool and got to keep 3 points and a clean sheet as well.. RVP extended his tally on the goal scoring charts and we have a good momentum going into the everton game.. Hoping for more wins.. Till then L8r y’all

  4. Good game by the guys…one of those teams above us need to lose though, ki lo de!

  5. cmgrat gunners great and 1daful game..arteta i love you,,please keep playing like this..everton sorry you are next victim..

  6. By having all the points that lead us to fifth in the table, Can we say we have materials for the challenge for the tittle?

  7. our own captain vantastic… He scores when he wants

  8. Announcers where beating the ‘one man team’ drum again after Robin Van Persie had scored, neatly ignoring that he was the fourth different Arsenal player to score on the day. At least ‘defensive frailties’ and ‘Wenger desperately having to play people out of position’ and ‘Arsenal desperately missing Fabergas and Na$ri’ and ‘last minute panic transfers’ seem to all have finally dropped out of the mindless things announcers say about Arsenal so that they don’t have to think of anything new.

  9. good game from the lads,I op we continue to keep clean sheets nd score more goal..

  10. most importantly, we can rest some of d first team players ahead of d midweek trip to Greece. Looking forward to see Ox, Deeench & syrup on d night, Ignasi too; there may be some future there too.
