Sunday afternoon saw Arsenal get a draw away at Stoke which was largely due to Petr Cech in goal who secured a point late on.

Cech – 9 – A terrific performance pulling off three world class saves. At this rate must be a contender for player of the year.

Bellerin – 7 – A good performance who defended well and dealt with the threat of Arnautovic.

Mertesacker – 7 – Had a good game and dealt with the technical and aerial threat of Stoke.

Koscielny – 7 – Played well and didn’t make a big mistake this week. Was key in the clean sheet.

Monreal – 8 – A great game defensively from Monreal who continues to impress.

Flamini – 6 – Needed to do better to keep hold of the ball especially in the second half.

Oxlade – Chamberlain – 6 – A mixed afternoon for the Ox who at times looked good and tested Butland in the first half but was also sloppy in the match often giving the ball away.

Campbell – 7 – A good performance again and played a delightful ball in the first half. Worked hard all afternoon and tried to create chances.

Ramsey – 7 – Tried to get on the ball but couldn’t really create anything.

Walcott – 6 – Poor match by Walcott who failed to control the ball on a regular occasion. Subbed after 70 minutes and was the right decision. Needs to improve in the coming weeks or else his place may be taken.

Giroud – 7 – Had Arsenal’s best chance but his shot was saved by the brilliant Butland. Tried to hold the ball up at a difficult ground.


Iwobi – 7 – Looked really good in the 20 minutes he got and showed what a talent his is. If given longer he may have created something.

Chambers – N/A – Didn’t have much time to influence the game.

Overall, it seems to be a good point especially when you consider the difficulties Arsenal have had recently at Stoke. However, we could have done with three after the late equaliser by Liverpool in midweek.

Gonna say it again' Theo is not good enough, now and then he scores a decent goal but he is just taking up a place in that team a better player should have, the ox just needs games and a goal, Campbell's doing very well and is far more important to the team than Theo, always puts in a shift and actually teams up well with hector,,
