Player Ratings: Arsenal 0-1 Manchester City

Bernd Leno – 6.5
He was not at fault for the goal and looked assured for much of the game.

Hector Bellerin – 5
Not surprisingly the right back had a difficult time containing Sterling, but he should have done better when joining the attack.

Rob Holding – 5.5
He should have done better to stop City’s goal but dealt with the attacks well after that mistake.

Pablo Mari – 6.5
He had a solid game and communicated well.

Kieran Tierney – 5
It was evident that he wasn’t fully match fit and had a torrid time dealing with Riyad Mahrez.

Mohamed Elneny – 4.5
He has an incredible engine but all he does is make a simple pass and runs nowhere useful.

Granit Xhaka – 6
Good with possession as usual, but needs to make more penetrating balls.

Martin Odegaard – 5
He didn’t have the best of matches, his passing was off range and his first touch let him down on the day

Nicolas Pepe – 5
He did not make any impact on the game but he was starved of good service

Bukayo Saka – 7
He was the only Arsenal player who troubled City’s defence but it wasn’t enough to change the course of the game.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 4.5

The Arsenal captain had a game to forget.

Substitutes

Alexandre Lacazette – 5
Failed to change the flow of the game

Emile Smith Rowe – 5
Struggled to create anything.

David Luiz – 6
Subbed on for a concussed Holding and was solid.

Dani Ceballos – N/A
