Arsenal went to Chelsea on Saturday for the early kick-off and promptly played like Arsenal at Chelsea.

These ratings are brutal. To be fair, they probably should be worse.

Petr Cech 1

His time as a top keeper is clearly over.

Hector Bellerin 10

If no-one even cares to recognise that he was knocked unconscious as Alonso headed the ball and this is a FOUL, then I don’t care what people think about me giving him a 10. Besides, until this point we’d actually looked quite decent. 12 minutes in total.

Shkodran Mustafi 3

Better get used to losing if this is how we’re going to defend. Should have scored.

Laurent Koscielny 3


Nacho Monreal 1


Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain 7

If there was a bright spot, it was the Ox, but that’s not saying much,. Played some nice passes, tracked back well.

Francis Coquelin 0

Awful. Just awful.

Mesut Ozil 1

What was that, Mesut?

Theo Walcott 0

When I was doing my predicted lineup, I completely forgot about Walcott. Not hard to see why on this performance.

Alex Iwobi 3

Wasn’t the worst one out there but slowed up our counters every single time. Welbeck should have started.

Alexis Sanchez minus 2

Too selfish and when he wasn’t being selfish he was just being awful. He turns the ball over so often it’s painful watching people fawn over him as if he isn’t a total liability at times.


Gabriel minus 3

Does he even know what football is?

Olivier Giroud 2

I know we brought him on with quite some time to go, but did we really? I’m pretty sure he only came on for the two seconds needed to score our sad consolation goal at the end.

Danny Welbeck 6

Great header well saved, looked sharp and lively and should have started.
