In a must win game against Croatian side Dinamo Zagreb, we pulled out all the stops and secured a vital 3-0 win. Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil got on the scoresheet, and with Olympiacos losing 4-0 against Bayern Munich things are now in our hands heading to Greece for the final game.
Here’s how we rate the players from our 3-0 win over Zagreb:
GK) Petr Cech – 7.0
The Czech international was barely troubled at all by Zagreb, but when he was needed you could see he hadn’t let his concentration lapse. He was alert to the danger and made one or two excellent saves.
RB) Hector Bellerin – 7.5
A brilliant attacking display, and his pace was really on display in a foot race against Pinto on the counter-attack.
Substitute: Mathieu Debuchy – 7.0
A late substitute, and a remarkably good display from the Frenchman given his recent form.
LB) Nacho Monreal – 7.5
Reliable as ever, and got forward well. His final ball was lacking slightly, but he was solid as solid as ever defensively.
CB) Per Mertesacker – 7.0
The giant German didn’t have a huge amount to do, but made some important clearances and interceptions.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 7.0
Koscielny was regularly seen running around and mopping up, and made a few good interceptions high up the pitch.
