Burnley 0 vs 1 Arsenal: Player Ratings, Man Of The Match & Shock Flop Of The Match.

Burnley vs Arsenal

Burnley vs Arsenal. 11th April 2015. Turf Moor.

32 games gone now and Arsenal are still marching on strongly with 66 points. Just four points behind League leaders Chelsea.

Arsenal has shown good character in their “almost late” bid for the League title.

Many had expected a rather high score line from the match, considering the attacking prowess of the team in recent weeks. But just a goal from Aaron Ramsey was all it took for Wenger and his lads to walk out of Turf Moor with all three points.

Ospina: 7

Ospina made a couple of brilliant saves to deny Burnley any hope of getting back into the game. Great performance from the Colombian shot stopper.

Mertesacker: 7

The skipper looked solid today. He contested and won almost every aerial ball that was flown in by the Clarets. It was another good performance from the German.

Koscielny: 7

Passed a late fitness test to get into the game and didn’t look or play as though he was even injured some days back. The Frenchman clearly doesn’t want his place in the team challenged by Gabriel, and rightly so.

Bellerin: 6.5

This was a different Bellerin from the one that played against Liverpool last weekend. It seemed as though he was afraid to run down the flanks or maybe he was instructed not to.

Monreal: 6.5

The Spaniard kept his place ahead of Gibbs yet again. He didn’t get as much chance to go forward as he would have loved to, but held his place in the defence well.

Coquelin: 8 (MOTM)

Our Talisman! He didn’t get an 8 just because he knew he was always going to start, but you could see from the way he broke down most of Burnley’s attacks that he was the best Arsenal player on the pitch. He’s clearly the man of the match for me.

Cazorla: 7

The Spaniard started brightly in the first half, but turned average in the second half. He could have gotten his name on the score sheet with a superb freekick that went inches wide.

Ramsey: 7.5

It was a great performance from the Welshman. It’s good to see that he is not just getting better which each game, but is now finding the back of the net as well.

Ozil: 7

It was a generally dull day for the Arsenal attackers, but he still did his bit whenever the team went forward.

Alexis: 7

The Chilean tried as much as he could to run at the opposition players and to create chances, but the Clarets where all over the pitch and where having none of it. It was however, a good performance from the former Barca man.

Giroud: 6 (FOTM)

A surprise flop of the match. It’s definitely his worst game since the 3-1 Champions League defeat against Monaco at the Emirates.


Welbeck: 6

He made some decent runs at the opposition with his fresh legs.

Chambers: N/A

He was brought in to run down the clock.
