Arsenal blew the chance to move back up to third and dropped points from a winning position once again. Arsenal dominated the game and took the lead through an Alexis Sanchez header but this was cancelled out through a Bolasie goal which should have been saved by the returning Cech.

Cech - 5 – Didn’t have much to do but will be disappointed with the goal he conceded.

Bellerin – 6 – Went forward to good effect but wasted so many crosses when getting himself into a good position.

Gabriel – 6 Always looks like he’s got a mistake in him but did make a last ditch tackle at the end to make sure Arsenal took a point.

Koscielny – 6 -Looked okay but again looked like he might make a mistake.

Monreal – 7 – Defended well and attacked to good effect.

Elneny – 7 – Solid performance again and kept the ball moving in midfield.

Coquelin – 6 - Played okay but needed a bit more composure when playing the final pass. Will be disappointed in the goal as he showed Bolasie inside.

Sanchez – 8 – Excellent movement all afternoon and could have scored a couple but just managed the one. Alexis looks like he’s getting back to his best.

Ӧzil – 7 – Played well throughout the afternoon but let down by the attackers.

Iwobi – 7 – Iwobi continues to impress and looked great again. His movement is excellent and looks a constant threat in this Arsenal side.

Welbeck – 7 – Welbeck looked dangerous all afternoon with his pace and forced the keeper into a good save. He also created the Arsenal goal.


Ramsey – 6 – Didn’t influence the game

Giroud – 6 – Didn’t influence the game

Walcott – N/A – Didn’t have any time to influence the game

Overall, more dropped points and this season has become a shambles. It now looks inevitable that we will finish behind Spurs but the immediate concern should be finishing the top four.

Yet another pointless display of over passing, square ball, 2yd pass's that we are famous for, every two Bob manager out there knows how to beat us, because Wenger is yesterday's man with yesterday's ideas, 11 individuals all playing their own game, no captain or leader of men out there to guide the team cos Wenger will tell us there's 11 captains out there, he must go and take all the back room staff too along with Walcott and some of the others, a new younger manager with fresh ideas is what we need, Wenger Out,

A typical Arsenal performance these days. Plenty of action and huff and puff in front of goal. But despite all the pressure they never looked completely safe at the back. Then the inevitable happened. A breakaway and Bolaissie was given too much time and space in front of goal. I was surprised that Cech let the goal in he has saved Arsenal so many times. But has Ospina played too much recently and Cech not match ready?

Finishing among the ECL placings has become meaningless, as all we do is make up the numbers each year. We have as much chance of winning it as I have of flying to Mars.

Wenger our, Kroenke out, we want our club back.

yeah, bellerin deserves 5. not a single cross was good and he had all the time in the world for most of them to put it right...i hope u understand what i mean, my english is not perfect...he is the only player that made me go mad. of course, they had luck with only one good shot and that was a goal, but anyway, we should have won it. it is very frustating when we lead so many games and we don't manage to win
