We once again failed to impress in the Premier League this season, with a scrappy Sunderland side earning a point at home against a very average Arsenal side.
Here’s how we rate the players following our goalless draw with Sunderland:
GK) Petr Cech – 6.0
A few decent saves from the Czech international, but despite our shaky looking defence he wasn’t called upon to make too many tricky stops.
RB) Hector Bellerin – 6.0
Another example of great build up from the youngster, but not enough end product.
LB) Nacho Monreal – 5.5
The Spaniard’s crossing was really poor, and at times he was far too cautious.
CB) Per Mertesacker – 6.0
Started the game fairly strongly, but gave the referee a decision to make with a handball in the box and made a couple of really poor choices throughout the game.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 6.0
The Frenchman made some equally poor choices, and his decision to duck when the ball flew in from a corner definitely could have cost us.
