Aaron Ramsdale – 6.0
He didn’t have much to do as Newcastle rarely came forward, especially in the second-half, but what he did do, he done well.
Ben White – 7.0
Like most of the Arsenal players, Ben White was good, nothing too special of a performance but he done his job well.
William Saliba – 6.0
Again, nothing too special. No breaking-line passes from Saliba today but more importantly no mistakes which was better from Wilo after his recent lapses of concentration against West Ham & Brighton.
Gabriel – 8.0
The best of Arsenal’s defenders this evening. Like always, a warrior. He dealt with everything at the back and was good on the ball when he needed to be.
Oleksandr Zinchenko – 8.0
He was the key to opening up the Newcastle defence tonight. Played some lovely passes throughout the game, it just didn’t happen in front of him unfortunately. My Arsenal MOTM tonight.
Thomas Partey – 7.0
Done his job well at the base of Arsenal’s midfield, nothing to write home about but one of Arsenal’s better players on the night.
Granit Xhaka – 6.5
Took up some good positions between the lines where he received the ball from Zinchenko but couldn’t capitalise when he entered the final third.
Martin Odegaard – 6.0
Newcastle dealt with Arsenal’s captain well. They didn’t allow him the space to get into the game.
Bukayo Saka – 7.5
Caused Dan Burn all sorts of problems throughout the game, however I thought he could have done a little better once in them positions. Good performance nonetheless from B.
Eddie Nketiah – 7.5
Made chances for himself which he unfortunately couldn’t convert however he was one of Arsenal’s better players on the night & done well considering the difficult task he had in front of him.
Gabriel Martinelli – 6.0
Disappointing performance from Gabi tonight, however Trippier & Newcastle as a whole did deal with the Brazilian well. He had a flicked header from a corner that went just wide of the post, which was probably the best chance of the game.
