Players Rating: Arsenal 3-1 West Brom – Saka gets 8.6 after having a stormer as a ‘Left back’

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

Bernd Leno – 6.4

The German goalie was hardly troubled during the game but couldn’t do much to deny Pereira a goal in the second half.

Calum Chambers – 7.2

Chambers was solid when defending, lively going forward and has got an assist to show for his efforts.

Rob Holding – 6.4

The English centre-back was steady.

Gabriel – 6.5

The Brazilian defender was a dominant figure and marshalled the defence well.

Bukayo Saka – 8.6

Constant threat to the opposition, also set up Emile Smith Rowe’s opening goal with a whipped cross. If only he was deputising Tierney instead of Xhaka in recent weeks…

Mohamed Elneny – 7.0

Protect his backline effectively during the 90 minutes. Plays better as a out and out DM.

Dani Ceballos – 6.2

The Spaniard is not a premier league player as he doesn’t have the physical attributes it demands.

Willian – 7.3

The Brazilian playmaker had his best game for us and scored a well-deserved goal with an excellent freekick.

Emile Smith Rowe – 7.7

Smith Rowe is a very shrewd player taking up clever attacking positions during games and he might be on the way of becoming the attacking midfield player Arsenal have been looking for. Scored his first Premier League goal with a ferocious volley in the first half.

Nicolas Pepe – 7.6

What a goal! Worthy of winning any football match and Pepe is capable of producing those moments of magic. He just needs to produce them a bit more often.

Gabriel Martinelli – 6.0

The Brazilian youngster had a relatively quite game for the standards he set himself. He got substituted in the 59th minute.

Substitutes:

Alexandre Lacazette – 6.4

The Frenchman led the line a little bit better with his physical attributes.

Kieran Tierney – 6.1

Helped to keep the lead for the reminder of the game.

CM: Thomas Partey – 6.8

Brought in to see the game out and hi did that very capably.
