The 6th round of the FA Cup will go to a replay after Arsenal were held at home. Arsenal should have won the game easily after creating loads of chances but it was the Hull keeper who prevented this and deservedly got man of the match.
Ospina – 6 – Didn’t really have anything to do but looked nervy on the ball and on crosses.
Chambers – 6 -One of the better players in the Arsenal side and looked dangerous down the right hand side. Although, he did lack a bit of quality when crossing.
Mertesacker – 6 – Didn’t really get challenged.
Koscielny – 5 - Should have been sent off and looked like he had a mistake in him.
Gibbs – 6 – Played okay but again needs to improve his crossing.
Flamini – 6 – Not much to do on the defensive side and lacked quality in the attacking areas.
Elneny – 6 – Looked good with his passing and runs. Easily brushed off the ball but this should improve once he’s been in England for a while.
Campbell – 6 – Looked clever with some of his runs and tested the keeper with an excellent free kick.
Iwobi – 7 – Thought Iwobi was very good and showed his potential. Looked one of Arsenal’s most dangerous players. Looked good on the turn and went close twice.
Welbeck – 7 – It was Welbeck’s first start in 10 months and he looked very good. Whenever, he received the ball he drove at the Hull defence and tried to get in the box at every opportunity.
Walcott – 6 – Didn’t really look a threat even when occupying the centre forwards role.
Giroud – 6 – Looked a threat when coming on mostly in the air.
Sanchez – 6 – Sanchez was poor once coming on often giving the ball away.
Oxlade – Chamberlain - 6 - Didn’t really change the course of the match and didn’t really receive the ball.
Overall it was an average performance and on another day it could have ended 4 – 0. The keeper for Hull was excellent and we must now win the replay. Next up is Barcelona in the champion’s league.
