Almunia 6.5- Had a quiet game today and couldn’t do much about the goal.
Eboue 6.5- Started the match surprisingly ahead of Sagna and did well. Eboue is going to try and take every chance he gets to be in the starting line up and I expect him to have a good season.
Koscielny 7- Scored his first ever goal in an Arsenal shirt, but then got over confident and thought a lightly touched header will make it to Almunia. Besides the goal, he was very good.
Squillaci 7- Had a very good game today, and made all of the right decisions. I expect him to get many games for Arsenal this season, and to have a good relationship with Vermaelen.
Gibbs 6.5- Didn’t challenge the ball very well and you can tell he doesn’t have the quality of Clichy. I think he will be important for Arsenal in the coming years, and I think he will fit in well if Clichy get’s an injury.
Fabregas 8.5- He showed his class and his determination today. Was involved in almost every attack and controlled the rhythm of the game.
Song 7.5- Played a lot more forward today and scored a delightful goal. It was his first goal at the Emirates, and I can’t guarantee that he will ever score again at the Emirates, but overall he had a great game.
Wilshere 6.5- I think he had a good game and made many good passes. You can tell that he isn’t quite there yet, but has loads of talent at his young age. He will be the next Fabregas, maybe.
Arshavin 6.5- Missed 3 golden opportunities which sort of through his game off. It seemed like he played more of a centre forward today instead of a winger with all of his offsides.
Rosicky 7- Missed a great, great opportunity but showed his class in his passes and work rate. He really deserves a goal for all of his efforts this season and you can feel that he will have a great season.
Chamakh 7.5- Played really well, and was rewarded by scoring a great header. He is the signing of the summer in the Premier League, and he only cost us £0! Typical Wenger signing.
Diaby N/A- Got injured, probably for a few weeks, and was substituted twice.
Denilson 6.5- Did well when came in for Diaby and almost scored a goal from Denilson range.
Vela 6- Scored within 5 minutes of coming on off of a 24 pass build up. Should have started today.
