Olivier Giroud bagged a brace, but Arsene Wenger will be unhappy they didn’t score more…
Arsenal beat Middlesbrough 2-0 in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Sunday. The victory means they still have a chance of defending their trophy.
How did their players rank in the match?
GK) Wojciech Szczesny, 6
Had little to do in his return to the starting XI, but did what he had to with ease.
RB) Calum Chambers, 6
The defence wasn’t tested much against the Championship side, and the England international may need to improve going forward.
LB) Kieran Gibbs, 7
Solid going forward as usual, grabbing himself an assist for one of the goals.
CB) Gabriel Paulista, 7
No mistakes in his highly anticipated debut. Fans will want to see more of the Brazilian.
CB) Laurent Koscielny, 6
Had almost nothing to do, so can’t be rated any higher.
