Player Ratings vs Fulham
Mannone 4 – Not great from Vito. Yes, he got a hand to the 2nd goal but should of saved it. For the penalty he watched as it rolled past him.
Sagna 5 – Not the best game from Bac, got caught out of position only for his pace to get him out of trouble. Brilliant in the air and has iron lungs.
Koscielny 5.5 – His error led to the corner for Fulham’s 1st goal. Better in 2nd half and made 2 excellent tackles.
Per 5 – Like Sagna, uncharacteristically caught out of position. Again, improved in the 2nd half.
Vermaelen 5.5 – An improvement from his performance in Schalke. Gave Fulham too much space but ok going forward.
Walcott 7.5 – A good game from Theo, was a constant threat. His crossing is more consistent. 2 assists today. Give him that new contract.
Coquelin 7 – Went about his business quietly. Typical performance, energetic, feisty. Hopefully Arsene uses him more.
Arteta 3 – It hurts to give Arteta such a low rating. You can count on one hand how many bad games he had in the last year. Gave away a penalty. Slow in possession and misplacing passes.
Podolski 6 – Quiet game from Pod again. Apart from a few nice touches and his goal he was quiet. Maybe that ankle injury is holding him back.
Cazorla 6.5 – Good game from Santi but I fear everyone gives him the ball to make something happen. A delight to watch with the ball at his feet.
Giroud 9 MOTM – Wow. An excellent performance from the big French striker. Won nearly every header attacking and defending. Showed great strength and individual skill.
Ramsey 4.5 – Not the best of games from Rambo. Could of been sent off. Sloppy with possession.
Ox-Chambo 5.5 Tried hard but couldn’t get into the game.
Arshavin 5 – Won a penalty, not enough time to get involved.
