Arsenal 1-0 Qarabag – player ratings

Not exactly a game that will love long in the memory, but we got Laurent Koscielny’s comeback, a goal from Alexandre Lacazette, and some lovely flashes from the young talent – not least from Bukayo Saka who was making his home debut.

Arsenal’s got Laurent Kosciel-ny. We’ll never get beat with Kosciel-ny. Yeah, we’ve got Laurent Kosciel-ny. We love Laurent Kosci-el-ny


Poor Emi, hasn’t been set up yet, but at least he was not Park Chu Young.


concerning that medley and saka don’t have eyes..


Emi doesn’t even have a name or correct number. They should count themselves lucky.

Danger Mouse

Gilmour has no eyes either. All three did well considering and perhaps is the reason for a few of those sloppy passes.


Game won. No one got injured. Young lads got a run.. Job done!


El Neny is the pirlo of back passes ??
His negative vision can find back passing lanes where we see none

don't forget

I’m so over this whole “Koscielny is 33” thing.. That isn’t that old for a CB. Lad’s got YEARS left. YEARS. Onward and upward!


Agree, but given his age and injury record it would be unwise not to plan ahead. I don’t see him playing twice a week for two seasons.


3 things:
– Saka, what a potential he’s got. Great confidence. Still a long way to go though.
– Medley, I really, really love this guy. Looks like an excellent footballer even now.
– Maitland-Niles, he’s so so good. One of the best utility players I’ve seen. Comfortable anywhere on the pitch.
Oh, and it’s great to see Ozil and Kos back of course. And Nacho too. Onwards. Upwards.


Boring game. Very little penetration despite the amount of possession. I suppose that’s to be expected with the lineup. Willock was terrible. That’s all I noticed.


This is a party and you’re oh so fun to be around…


Coz youre a pom and youre miserable


Agree about Willock. Don’t see that he is any better than either brother. And AMN must be teed off that Willock gets a central midfield spot ahead of him.


Why the h… are people so pissed off about that comment? He’s right. I love Arsenal, i love Willock. Still the game was boring and Willock average. He will better in time.

I personally gave a minus for the attitude. “That’s all I noticed”?


Er, we won? That was fairly noticeable.

Cliff Bastin

Pretty sure Sokratis made a delicious sandwich as well.


Like the way Emi distributed: very quick one touch. We’ll see if he can do it under pressure. It feels like Emery set the youngsters free in the second half. Loved seeing them push themselves.

I think ozil was great today. Got the assist and a couple of times when the young players misplaced a pass, it was he who would charge in and rescue the ball from opposition feet. He pressed well as well. But of course all the media outlets will focus on that one time he took some extra seconds to get back up to his feet after a challenge. For me he’s putting in the effort and there’s only so much he can change for us.


…it would seem all that gibberish about Ozil being on strike and wanting out in January is nothing more than well…erm back pain. Tabloids running wild with their own imagination and sadly certain quarters of the fan base all too eager to believe anything hook line and sinker.:D He may have a part to play against Soton. As mentioned, we can line up up top in a triangle (likely) with Iwobi and Mhkitaryan (or Ozil) supporting Lacazette OR Auba… …or we could also go into an inverted triangle with Laca and Auba supported by the abilities of Ozil and a… Read more »


I thought the inverted triangle was the Bermuda one. Yes I know, get my coat.

To be frank blogs and news kind of took the bait on “ozil strikes and wants out” malarkey a little wee bit, as well.

Tony Adams Nose

Amen to that

SB Still

Yes Kos the Boss had the biggest smile amongst all those who played, as though he was one of the youngsters making their debut and kept a clean sheet. Nice. Seems his injury needs daily treatment. So the Jan CB addition seems important. Recalling Chambers will be perfect if it’s possible, he doesn’t seem to be playing CB anyways. I know there is the logical Q of if he can’t play CB for Fulham then how can he play CB for us. While it’s not exactly the same but Gnabry wasn’t picked by Pulis, Le Coq was surplus to requirements… Read more »


Saka was awesome, really looking forward to see more of him. Willock was good but not amazing today. AMN cool as a cucumber, as usual. Nketiah was good, sad about the offside goal.

The best about today tho was Kos playing again, that smile on his face was priceless. Go on Kos!

Monkey knees

Lolo’s happy face made my soul sing! What a guy!
