The Arsenal player ratings after the North London Derby victory & let’s just say the whole team can have won MOTM today. Arsenal were that good…
Aaron Ramsdale – 10.0
The perfect performance from a keeper in an away North London Derby… saved absolutely everything that came his way, distribution was as good as it always is & wound up the Spurs fan to perfection. My MOTM. My keeper.
Ben White – 7.5
Just turns up, does it job to perfection like most weeks & goes home. Solid performance, but you’d expect nothing less from the calmest man on the field.
William Saliba – 7.5
Like Ben White, done his job superbly. Harry Kane didn’t have a sniff. Arsenal controlled the majority of the game, but when they didn’t the two Arsenal centre backs done their jobs perfectly.
Gabriel – 8.0
Both centre backs were great but I thought Gabriel was the better of the two. So aggressive towards Harry Kane who didn’t have a chance this afternoon. A warrior at the back & another great performance.
Oleksandr Zinchenko – 9.0
The only Ukrainian I need in my life. A central midfielder playing left back. He controlled the game and was pivotal in all good things Arsenal done today. Top performance from a top man.
Thomas Partey – 8.5
Done his job brilliantly at the base of Arsenal’s midfield, as he usually does. Broke up the very few attacks Spurs had and was great in possession.
Granit Xhaka – 8.0
Made a great chance for Eddie Nketiah which he should have scored. Quality going forward, solid at the back and again, another player with a top performance today.
Martin Odegaard – 9.0
My captain. His work-rate off the ball is phenomenal & on the ball he’s even better. The first captain to score in an away North London Derby since Patrick Vieira! No one can stop Martin Odegaard at the moment.
Bukayo Saka – 8.0
The usual Bukayo performance. Sessegnon didn’t have a chance today. Saka created the first goal which put Arsenal on their way and was brilliant throughout.
Eddie Nketiah – 8.0
He might have missed a few chances today in which he should have scored, but he still gets an 8.0 from me as his all round game is brilliant. He works so hard, creates chances and openings on his own and can definitely play a role while Gabriel Jesus remains injured.
Gabriel Martinelli – 7.0
The worst rating of the front three but still a solid performance from Gabriel Martinelli.
