Verminator delivers 3 points: The Player Ratings
Posted by qed14
Szczesny (6) -Had little to do all game. Beaten at his near post for the goal.
Koscielny/Vermaelen (8.5) -Amazing shift. Gave the Newcastle players no chance in the box. Vermaelen got the winner. Dramatic stuff.
Sagna (8) – Was full of running. Stood up to Gutierrez and helped in attack when he could.
Gibbs (6.5) – Could have done better with his tackling for Ben Arfa’s goal. Was impressive going forward. Decent game.
Arteta (7) – Back from injury and slotted in nicely. Gave a few balls away and he should have been a bit more adventurous with his passes.
Song (7) – Good game, kept moving the ball around. Didn’t get an assist today.
Rosicky (7.5) – Picked up from where he left off in the previous game. No goal this time though. Was at the middle of everything we did while he lasted.
Walcott (9) – 2 assists when we needed them the most. Was a menace throughout. Great game. Do this more often, Theo. My Man Of Match.
The Ox (6.5) – Quiet performance, not by any means poor though. It just didn’t happen for him today.
Van Persie (8) – Another top performance. Replied Ben Arfa’s opener in stunning fashion. Kept taunting the opposition defence and keeper all game. Seeing him shout “Come On” after the winner was a joy!
Gervinho (4) – Did nothing of note. He needs to get his head right.
Ramsey (6.5) – Came in and brought a new dimension to the game. Was full of running. Could have got an assist.
There you have it gooners! Our winning run continues. Just one point behind the Spuds now with 10 games to go.
Jermain Defoe should get his cheque book ready as he’ll be doing philanthropic work all summer.
