How we rated Arsenal’s performances as they beat QPR with ten men this evening.
Arsenal managed to get back to winning ways at the Emirates Stadium this evening after a relatively comfortable win over Queens Park Rangers at the Emirates Stadium, despite the Gunners missing a penalty and going down to ten men in the second half when Olivier Giroud was sent off.
This is how we rated Arsene Wenger’s men:
GK) Wojciech Szczesny 7 – Was very rarely tested by Queens Park Rangers’ attack and commanding enough – maybe disappointed that he dived past Austin’s penalty.
RB) Mathieu Debuchy 7 – Played well in the first half and, although less involved, was also solid after the break. Incredibly unlucky to concede a penalty for a decent tackle.
CB) Per Mertesacker 6 – Not overly tested by the visitors but did look somewhat nervous on occasion when Rangers did get the ball forward.
