Arsenal 3-1 Chelsea- Player Ratings

Fabianski 6- Could have been better positioned on the goal but you can’t blame him for that. Didn’t have a save to make but made some important catches.

Sagna 7.5- Almost took off Drogba’s head with a blistering left footed strike, and not only that, he defended so much better in this game.

Koscielny 7.5- He and Djourou were absolute monsters in the back. He didn’t let anything come past him and made some very good tackles.

Djourou 7.5- Wenger chose him over Squillaci and didn’t he make a good choice. Djourou outran Drogba on several occasions, Made some important interceptions, and was a monster at the back.

Clichy 7- Defended well, outran players, and did well coming forward. You couldn’t have asked for anymore than what Clichy produced.

Wilshere 7.5- He was a young Cesc Fabregas in his passing today. He took some risks that didn’t pay off, and he kept trying and ended up having a very, very good game.

Song 9- You couldn’t ask for anything more than what Song gave you today. The best I have ever seen him play in my life. He scored left footed from a tight angle, made so many good clearances, Took the ball off Drogba, Mikel, Ramires, and Lampard so many times, and almost had one of the runs off the season at the end of the match. Brilliant.

Fabregas 8- Made an assist and scored one and was involved in the first. Made some eye catching passes and you could tell that he was up for it.

Walcott 8.5- Started shaky and gave away possession a few times but ended up getting the better of Ashley Cole at every attempt. Like Fabregas, he scored a wonderful goal and set up Fabregas so unselfishly.

Nasri 8- Almost scored one of the goals of the season with his chip that Cech saved, and was unlucky not to score in the second half. He outran Ferreira on so many occasions and passed to himself a couple of times.

RVP 7.5- He is just coming back from injury and he still did really well. Unlucky not to score but he did make a few fine flicks.

Diaby 7- Came on and did his job.

Rosicky N/A- Almost scored an offside goal at the end but too little time to make an impact.

Chamakh 7- I think he did well when he came on. Got possession, took it to the corner, and he rounded Cech but opted to pass to Nasri.

  1. Song, Walcott and Fabregas were all excellent, but I wouldn’t underestimate the contribution of Djourou either. He had Drogba in his pocket pretty much the entire game, and it was a thoroughly assured performance. After understandably taking several games to find his form after his long absence, he is now looking like our best defender in the continued absence of Vermaelen.

    What a great result, though. Surely no one can argue we didn’t deserve it, and all the changes Wenger did make to the starting XI – RvP, Theo and Djourou – worked like a dream.
