Arsenal faced off against Bodo/Glimt at the Aspmyra Stadion earlier this evening as they looked to earn a good result on their travels in the UEFA Europa League. The Gunners made a good start to the game and managed to open the goal-scoring in the 24th minute courtesy of Bukayo Saka’s header. Mikel Arteta’s men struggled to create chances but managed to get into the half-time break 1-0 up on the scoreline.

The North London club sat on their lead well in the second half and managed to earn a narrow 1-0 win away from home.

Let’s take a look at how each Arsenal player performed during the match against Bodo/Glimt.

GK: Matt Turner – 7/10

Turner made one good save in the game and would be quite pleased with the clean sheet.

RB: Ben White – 6.5/10

He made one important clearance at the back and was good on the ball as well for Arsenal.

CB: William Saliba – 7/10

The French talent did what was required of him defensively and was accurate with his passing.

CB: Rob Holding – 7/10

Holding cleared his lines when needed and did enough to restrict the home team from scoring this evening.

He showed some flashes of what he can do but was toothless in front of the opponent’s goal.
