Verminator delivers 3 points: The Player Ratings

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.

See you in the comments!

    I’m really impressed the way we played today.vermalin and koscielny really did well by keeping demba ba away from the 18yard box. Thumbs up to van persie.

  11. Bring Verma down to 8 & Rosicky up to 8…..then I’m good. Good ratings, all in all.
    The last few weeks have shown how the importance of team morale can never be understated. Grit, passion, never-say-die attitude. I’m over the moon.
    Let’s get up to 3rd & build up to nexxt season. Good signs.
    Proud Gunner.

  14. I can’t say enough about this win and the Liverpool one. These are the secret of success in this league, the games you win because you want it more than the other team.

  15. Ramsy 6.5 ??
    That’s the joke of the day!
    Brought a new dimension? Are you blind?
    He’s the worst arsenal player on earth.
    Only dimension he bought was the crap one.
    Every touch was wasted. Every pass was wrong.
    Slow. Useless. Wasteful.
    Stop over eating players you moron !

    Give Ramsy a rope and let’s hope he hangs himself !!

  16. The win doesn’t justify the high ratings given.
    Most players did brilliantly.
    Ramsy, Gibbs , the Ox over rated !!

    Keep the Ox and play him in 2 years if he’s ready.
    Sell the other two yesterday !!
    Worst arsenal players ever on the pitch.
    Santos must start again.
    Rosicky shoul NEVER be replaced by Ramsy !
    Never under any circumstances.
    Wenger is a blind man that keeps favouring British/welsh players to please FA and board !
    More foreign players needed.
    Home grown only destroying arsenal.
