Arsenal clashed heads with Liverpool at the Emirates earlier tonight, hoping to pick up a positive result and retain their position at the top of the table. Gabriel Martinelli took everyone by surprise as he punished Liverpool’s mistake in the first minute of the game. Darwin Nunez equalised in the 34th minute; but, Bukayo Saka scored in the last minute of first-half’s added time to put the hosts back in the lead. Roberto Firmino’s clever run behind William Saliba led to Liverpool’s second goal of the game; however, Saka made no mistake in converting from the penalty spot after Diogo Jota fouled Gabriel Jesus inside the box.

Let’s look at how each Arsenal player fared during the clash against the Reds.

Arsenal Players Rated In Thrilling Win Vs Liverpool

Aaron Ramsdale 6/10

A decent performance from the former Bournemouth shot-stopper. Nothing spectacular though.

Ben White 7/10

A colossal performance from the right-back. No-nonsense defending throughout the match.

Gabriel 6.5/10

A poor attempt to receive the ball in front of the goal led to Darwin Nunez’s goal.

William Saliba 6.5/10

He could have done better to track Roberto Firmino’s run that led to Liverpool’s second goal.

Takehiro Tomiyasu 7/10

Quiet throughout the game. Made no mistake whatsoever.

Granit Xhaka 7/10

The Swiss international played with aggression at the centre of the park.

Thomas Partey 7.5/10

A great defensive performance from the Ghana international. He made some nice tackles and clearances to make things easier for his team.

Gabriel Martinelli 8.5/10

Punished Liverpool’s mistake in the first minute of the match by slotting the ball past Alisson. He also set up Bukayo Saka’s first goal of the game.

Martin Odegaard 8/10

Got himself the assist for Martinelli’s goal. Besides that, his link-up play – especially his perfectly-timed wide passes to Saka and Martinelli – was a constant source of threat for the Liverpool defence.

Bukayo Saka 9/10

A brace to keep Arsenal at the top of the league table. The Englishman put up an excellent performance in a very crucial game.

Gabriel Jesus 8/10

Could work his way through the tightest of spaces and was very lively in an around the penalty area.

Substitutes 

Kieran Tierney 6/10

Added more solidity to Arsenal’s defence.

Eddie Nketiah N/A

Replaced Gabriel Jesus in the 91st minute.

Fabio Vieira N/A

He came on in the 94th minute.
