He was begging for work to do and Stoke did not offer much. A second clean sheet kept; his first test will come at the Etihad.
How unlucky is this man? Maybe there’s something about the way he lands that does him in. Hope its not a serious injury, looked like a shifted shoulder. We should stop playing Stoke, to be honest.
As cosy as you can expect from Koscielny. He’s now scored 2 league goals for 5 consecutive seasons. Hope he beats that tally.
Really handled Crouch very well and showed the leader we want him to be with the warning on Alexis not to push the Referee.
Played as well as Gibbs would have done. Assured all round.
Bring on City, we have Coquelin.
I had to add the fraction this time, for a player who would certainly have been an Arsenal great by now were he fit always. (Maybe he’d have gone to Barca!)
Not as terrific as the past games but is still the real deal. Would have capped the performance with a fine chip.
I just wish he scored more often; lad has lots in his locker and will explode soon.
Alexis: 9 (GMOTM)
Sorry but we wouldn’t do him enough justice if we try to say something. ‘G’ for Grand
Nice show off technique. Seems to still have issues with that irritable temperament… Worrying.
Might get an extended run if Debuchy’s fall was serious. Boy must be dreaming, how many games he’s played already.
That flick… Welcome Oozil
Still rusty, needs a can of hydraulic.
Everyone turned up their game against Stoke, so its hard to say there was a flop of the match.
