With Arsenal losing the last two games this was a must win game. At half time Arsenal were on track after Ramsey had given Arsenal the lead. However, Coquelin got himself sent off for two yellows around the 60th minute when not needing to make the tackle. It then went from bad to worse with Spurs scoring to quick goals. However, Sanchez equalised to rescue a point.
Ospina – 8 – A lot of critics in the week once we knew he was playing and pulled off some really good saves with one outstanding one in the first half.
Bellerin – 8 – Got two assists which were important but should have been sent off.
Mertesacker – 7 – Defended well and look solid for most of the game.
Gabriel – 8 – Thought Gabriel was excellent and really took responsibility. Summarised by him shouting c’mon in the middle of the first half to his team mates.
Gibbs – 7 – Thought he played well after coming in for the injured Monreal. Defended well but needs to make the most of the ball in the attacking third.
Coquelin – 5 – Was having a good game but got himself sent off which nearly cost Arsenal all the points.
Elneny – 7 – Made his first premier league start and looked good in the defensive two. Intercepted and play the ball forward on most occasions.
Ramsey - 7 – Scored the opening goal after being shifted to the right wing and looked dangerous all afternoon. Could have scored the winner in injury time.
Ӧzil – 6 – Fairly quiet all afternoon got more involved after Arsenal took the lead.
Sanchez – 7 – Got more involved as the game went on and scored the equaliser. The goal was much needed and hopefully will give him the confidence.
Welbeck – 8 – Arsenal’s best player by a mile and looked dangerous all afternoon running in behind and definitely looked a threat.
Giroud - 6 – Came on and made a difference trying to lay the ball off.
Flamini – N/A – Didn’t have much time to influence the game.
Campbell – N/A - Didn’t have much time to influence the game.
Overall, we can’t fault the performance of the players who gave everything. A point is well deserved but could have been much more if it wasn’t for the sending off.
