Arsenal locked horns with West Ham United at the London Stadium earlier today as they looked to earn a good result on the road in the Premier League. The Gunners made a quick start to the game and scored the opening goal in the seventh minute when Gabriel Jesus scored from close range. Martin Odegaard doubled Arsenal’s advantage just three minutes later with a great finish. However, the home side got a goal back via Said Benrahma’s penalty in the 33rd minute. Mikel Arteta’s men went into the half-time break 2-1 up on the scoreline.

Jarrod Bowen equalised for the Hammers with a good finish in the 54th minute as Arsenal were held to a lackluster 2-2 draw away from home.

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

GK: Aaron Ramsdale – 5.5/10

Ramsdale made one good save in the game but won’t be pleased after failing to keep a clean sheet in both halves.

RB: Ben White – 7/10

He did his fair share of defending and had a lively game going forward. White ended the game with an assist to his name.

CB: Rob Holding – 6/10

The English defender put his foot through the ball when needed and was a threat going forward. Still, he will be disappointed after conceding twice today.

CB: Gabriel – 7/10

He got stuck in with some solid tackles and cleared the danger when needed. However, Gabriel gave away a cheap penalty in the first half.

Saka was a constant menace in the final third but missed a penalty in the second half.

He linked up play well with others around him.
