Ratings by Sp1r0r.

Almunia 6.0
Nothing to do.

Sagna 7.5
Defended well and supported the attack. Good assist for Diaby’s goal.

Song 7.0
Although was against poor opposition, showed good strength and impressive composure in defence.

Vermaelem 7.0
Did his job.

Clichy 7.0
Defended well and was his usual strong attacking self.

Diaby 6.5
Good goal but gave away some cheap possession in the 1st half.

Wilshere 6.5
Tried hard but nothing to shout about. Still, showed that he can slot into the team when needed to.

Rosicky 8.0
Our best player besides Walcott. His movement and passing was excellent.

Arshavin 6.5
Aside from the penalty and the assist for Walcott’s 1st goal, did not seem to be that much of a threat. Looked off the pace at times.

Chamakh 6.5
Deserved his goal and I thought was involved in alot of our good passing. Missed a few simple chances, was move out wide when RVP came on. I hope thats not were Wenger will play him

Walcott 9.0
Good finishes and was a threat all afternoon. Showed he can turn it on against the weaker teams, but just got to do it more consistently and especially against the bigger teams. [MOTM]

Fabregas 6
Good game to get some minutes. Lots of running and good linkup play.

Van Persie 6
Still not fully match fit and was afraid he could have been injured anytime.

Vela 6.5
Showed glimpses of brilliance but needs to contribute more when called upon.

    theo looks like he knows he must prove a point and he is ready..if he can add about 10-15 goals and same number of assists we could be in for a special season

    I’m intrigued by the comment that theo needs to do it in the big games…carling cup final, fa cup semi versus Chelsea, champs league versus Valencia and Liverpool, and an awesome cameo at homa to barca last year, obviously the hatrick in Zagreb. Agree more consistency is required but he’s only 21 and Im sure we’ll see more consistency from here on in. Good on ya Theo

    Of course Theo needs to do it more consistently but the lad is 21 FFS. He is still half a decade from his peak years. If he manages to stay healthy he will be a world beater.

    With your comment (he has to do it in big game) it shows you dont like Walcot? do you.
    Zagreb,Villa Real,Poto,Liverpool Champions league and Barcelona home and away to mention but few.
    I can point out how many times you have castigated this boy (Walcot) like those morons on English TV pindits that cost him his space in WC.
    What you fails to see is that Walcot is a big game player he has never dissapoint at big stage and that was the mistake Carpelo made and it cost him and England big.
    There is no player without ups and downs look at Rooney now Arshavin,Gerard,lampard even Messi but you can not realise that if all players score hart trick every game goals will has no meaning.
    Thia guy (Walcot) has his trade mark just like other individual players with there trade marks you either like it or leave it and be objective next time.

    All of a sudden Theo is great.This is the player who Wenger didnt think was good enough to play in front of Eboue at Anfield.Blackpool were poor and it didnt help them being down to 10 men.We could and should have had double figures.Chamakh was poor in his finishing
    What did we learn today?.Nothing.Against teams that let is play we will murder them but we wont be playing Blackpool every week

    Almunia 0.5 below Arshavin and Wilshire in your ratings when he didnt make one save.Are you having a laugh

    Thank you for giving Rosicky his props. Ths guy is so underrated. Let’s remember he’s only had one full season for our “Little Mozart”. He’s out to prove a point this season.

    22 goal attempts resulted into 6 goals!!!!chamakh has to work on his finishing touch…very good in the air though..arshavin should be dropped..he is too lazy and doesnt contribute as much as his mates..seems disinterested tooand why the heck is wilshere deployed as DM?????rosicky the main man at the moment!!!!thumb up for him!Our no.7 is back!!!

    Theo was excellent today,yes Blackppol are poor opposition but I have seen him not have any end product against poor opposition so lets lift him up when he does something good. He should have had 4 goals. Rosicky was also v. good, I think when fit he is an adequate replacement for CESC. 2 more additions we will compete for the title, 3 more additions we can win the league and that 3 addition has to be a replacement for SONG

    yeah great performance by walcott. he is a great player but sometimes arsenal dont take advantage of his pace. arsenal make the bad habit of getting too narrow and wont hit balls over the top or into space against teams who get tight on them in midfeild and defence. walcott is the perfect weapon against these teams a few balls over the top for walcott to run on to will panic and destroy any defence he has proved this already. i was glad to see chamakh get his goal he was trying to hard , thats why he missed a couple of chances he was involved in all the build up play he also looks like a hard worker and wont give up. glad to see rosicky playing like we all knew he would once he was injury free and fully fit.

    One cannot help but feel pleased that Theo had such a great game….he has had a tough summer….but he re-acted brilliantly…but even after such a game…he is still critized by Hanson and many other ‘pundits’ as having ‘no brain’

    I think we at Arsenal should be glad that we have such a promising young talent at OUR CLUB…who is not only a promising young talent but a seriously pleasant guy….that we should be PROUD of.

    I always find the game is exciting when he is on the pitch….even Messi said that the player that caused them (Barcelona) the most problems is Theo

    It was good to see Rosicky playing so well again too…Lets hope they all stay fit
