Arsenal were knocked out of the Champions League, despite a 2-0 victory over AS Monaco in the second-leg of the last 16, for the fourth year in a row.
Olivier Giroud and Aaron Ramsey got their names on the scoresheet, but it was not enough for a historic comeback, as the Gunners were made to pay for a nightmare defensive display in the first-leg.
Here, we rate the performances of Arsene Wenger’s players on their second-leg showing…
GK – David Ospina – 6/10
Had very little to do with his team dominating possession, but was assured on the few occasions Monaco did threaten.
RB – Hector Bellerini – 7/10
An attacking threat on the right-flank, linked up well with Sanchez, and delivered some dangerous crosses into the box.
RCB – Per Mertesacker – 6/10
A relatively quiet evening for the German – yet composed when called upon. Though his almost complete absence of pace remains an uncomfortable watch.
LCB – Laurent Koscielny – 7/10
An authoritative performance, showed an attacking threat with promising moves forward, but did misplace simple passes towards the end.
LB – Nacho Monreal (Gibbs 83′) – 6/10
Worked hard throughout, bombing up and down the left-flank, but wasn’t able to influence in the final third as much as Bellerini.
