Arsenal Player Ratings In Victory Over Bournemouth: Gunners Finally Back To Winning Ways

Arsenal left behind all controversy with a convincing 3-0 win over Bournemouth and will hope to capitalize on it in the following weeks. Francis Coquelin’s injury is a scare and we have to wait on his update.

Here are the players rated and slated from their display-

Petr Cech (7.5/ 10)- After a busy game against Liverpool, where he hardly got breathing space, the goalie looked very comfortable under the bar today. Bournemouth had hardly got a shot at goal in the first half and following Jermain Defoe hitting the post in the second half, the Gunners scored immediately to eliminate any threat or insecurities.

Sead Kolasinac (8/10)- Another robust performance by the Bosnian international. Critics have argued in the last two weeks how the wing-back is a role tailor made for him and he proved it. It was his assist that led to the first goal and his bursting runs up front looks very scary.

Laurent Koscielny (8/10)- Arsenal back to winning ways and could only mean that the skipper had everything right at the back. Although his leg hurt following the clash with Joshua King, he was able to pull it off comfortably at the end.

Shkodran Mustafi (7.5/10)- For someone who wasn’t seeing his future at the Emirates until two weeks back, he put up a strong and determined display at the back proving Arsene Wenger’s trust in him.

Nacho Monreal (8/10)- With Kolasinac taking much of the pressure just ahead of him, the Spaniard looked easy and perfected his tackles really well. His pace makes his recovery runs effective and he partnered well will Koscielny and Mustafi.

Hector Bellerin (8.5/10)- Exactly the kind of displays fan would want from Bellerin. Playing him on the left had kept Arsenal seriously toothless on the flanks last game, as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain did very little on his end. On his preferred side, Bellerin is dazzling.

Granit Xhaka (8/10)- The only way to rectify his defensive mistakes was disciplined performance and he did that well. He sat deep and relied on his strength of passing from long ranges.

Aaron Ramsey (8/10)- Much better display by the Welshman and as he continued his form from the international break. He got an assist for Arsenal’s third goal and was subbed off to a standing ovation.

Mesut Ozil (7.5/10)- The fact that he didn’t get an assist when Arsenal had a good game is shocking. However, he did his part well and got into pockets of spaces.

Danny Welbeck (9.5/10)- How is that for a response? Arsene Wenger took a huge gamble starting him ahead of Sanchez, and he took it brilliantly. His second goal would surely be considered as one of the best strikes in years to come.

Alexandre Lacazette (9/10)- That’s two goals in first two home games as Arsenal’s new signing shares the record with Marouane Chamakh. His clean strike from that range only echoes his reputation.

Alexis Sanchez (7/10)- A familiar display by the Chilean coming after the game was almost over. However, it was his presence that prevented Bournemouth from going all out with Arsenal playing with 10 men at the dying stages.

Olivier Giroud (7/10)- Did what he does best but Arsenal weren’t really attacking then.
