Arsenal blew the chance to go third when they lost 1-0 at Goodison Park on Sunday afternoon, making nobody feel confident about their chances of sealing top four given the number of away games we have left.
It was a grim afternoon so let’s not waste any more time than we have to re-living it. Here are the ratings, starting as always with the defence. Dan is on holiday, I’m not going to be as kind.
Bernd Leno 6
Didn’t overly have that much to do, stood up well to deny Bernard in the second half.
Shkodran Mustafi 4
I mean, really? Despite making five clearances and two blocks, he looked a liability all afternoon. His passing accuracy was 76.5%, worse than Leno’s. Was culpable for their goal and was booked for being an absolute moron.
Managed to get himself booked meaning he now serves a two-game ban. With six clearances, three tackles, two interceptions and four blocks he was our best defender by a distance.
Nacho Monreal 5
Seemed to spend most of the game moaning at the referee.
