Arsenal Player Ratings v Wigan Athletic: Gunners Progress On Penalties After 1-1 Draw

Posted by

Arsenal edged past Wigan Athletic on penalties to reach the FA Cup final after a 1-1 draw in regular time. Read Gunners player ratings here.


Arsene Wenger: 6/10

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger made a big gamble at the beginning of the game, selecting the inexperienced Yaya Sanogo up front, and gambling on the fitness of Aaron Ramsey.

Neither exactly paid off, even if both were industrious, but it was interesting to see that Wenger switched to 4-4-2 when he brought on Olivier Giroud for Lukas Podolski, as he rarely deviates from his favoured 4-2-3-1 formation.


Lukasz Fabianksi: 8/10

Lukasz Fabianski got a hand to Jordi Gomez’s penalty, but couldn’t keep it out. Hardly put a foot wrong otherwise, and is perhaps the very best backup goalkeeper in the Premier League.

Unfortunately for the Gunners given his penalty shootout heroics, he looks set to leave Emirates Stadium this summer.
