Arsenal gave Arsene Wenger one final win as a send off on Sunday afternoon, with a 1-0 victory over Huddersfield Town.

The win brought to an end 22 years in charge of the club for the Frenchman, and the flowing final goal typified the way his teams have played over the years.

It also meant the side managed to pick up their first away points of the campaign, which should hopefully put that particular record out of the players’ heads before next season.

Here are our final individual player ratings of the season:

1Defence

David Ospina 8

Ospina and Cech haven’t exactly covered themselves in glory this season, but on this occasion the Colombian really stepped up to the task. He kept a clean sheet, which was the main thing, but he also put his body on the line a number of times and made a few great saves to keep Huddersfield at bay.

This may well be his final appearance, with his contract up next summer, and a World Cup to impress potential suitors, so I’m glad it was a good one.

Hector Bellerin 7

Bellerin linked up well with the players around him, and looked a bit fresher for finally having a break in mid-week. He still wasn’t perfect, and lost most of his aerial duels, but in general performed well enough.

Shkodran Mustafi 8

Mustafi had a tough task on Sunday, considering he was surrounded by inexperienced defenders. He did well, and made a massive 14 clearances throughout the match, more than the rest of the defence combined.

This was his final chance to impress before the Germany World Cup squad comes out, so perhaps that gave him a bit of extra motivation.

Rob Holding 7

Like Bellerin, this was an adequate performance from Holding, with a couple of small mistakes littered in. Fortunately none of them were badly punished, and in general he did enough to withstand a lot of Huddersfield pressure.

Sead Kolasinac 7

Kolasinac continues to confuse me with his link up play, which seems to be simultaneously intelligent and sloppy. His pass accuracy was the lowest of the defenders, but he was still involved in some nice one-touch moves.

He does love to get forward, as most Arsenal full-backs do, which can leave the team a bit exposed at the back. At the same time, that trait helps a lot with the build-up play in attack. The new manager will have to figure out whether the positives outweigh the negatives.
