The Arsenal player ratings after the Gunners make in five wins in a row at Craven Cottage this afternoon and stay five points clear at the top of the Premier League table with 11 games to go…
Aaron Ramsdale – 7
Was almost caught out playing out from the back in the first-half but made a couple of great saves in the second-half to make up for it. Overall didn’t have much to do.
Ben White – 7.0
The usual Ben White performance. Calm at the back and didn’t put a foot wrong.
William Saliba – 7.0
Dealt with Mitrovic very well throughout the whole 90 minutes. Comfortable display.
Gabriel – 8.5
Likewise with William Saliba, Gabriel was comfortable at the back today & got his goal from a corner. Fulham must hate the sight of the big Brazilian as he now has 3 goals in 4 games against the Whites.
Oleksandr Zinchenko – 7
Solid, calm performance from the Ukrainian today. Saw a lot of the ball as usual and done well when he had it.
Thomas Partey – 8.0
Controlled the game, as he usually does when he’s on the pitch & had some really nice touches, especially in the second-half. Great performance from Arsenal’s number five.
Granit Xhaka – 7.0
He should have scored which would have been one of the team goals of the season from Arsenal in the first-half, but unfortunately Granit got his touch wrong. Solid display overall.
Martin Odegaard – 8.0
Back from illness and back on the scoresheet was Arsenal’s captain today. Top performance.
Bukayo Saka – 7.0
The quietest of Arsenal’s front three today but still had a good game overall.
Leandro Trossard – 9.0
His best game in an Arsenal shirt so far. Three assists in the first-half shows how good the Belgian was at times today. Unplayable in the first-half. My MOTM.
Gabriel Martinelli – 8.0
Five goals in five league games for Gabriel Martinelli now & the goal topped a fine display from the Brazilian. He’s found his form from earlier on in the season. Top display.
Reiss Nelson – 6.0
Kieran Tierney – 6.0
Gabriel Jesus – 6.5
Fabio Vieira – 6.0
Takehiro Tomiyasu – 6.0
