Arsenal player ratings following the 3-2 win over Brighton at the Falmer Stadium in the FA Cup…
It was a tense ending to a game that ended up being a lot tighter than it initially looked. Arsenal were helped by Brighton being remarkably poor in the first half, but the home side came to life in the second period.

Here are the Arsenal ratings for their 3-2 win over Brighton in the FA Cup…
GK) Wojciech Szczesny – 6.0
The Pole had almost nothing to do in the first half, but didn’t look totally assured when he was tested a little more in the second 45.
RB) Calum Chambers – 6.5
The young defender looked excellent in the early goings, and provided a superb assist for Theo Walcott’s goal. He struggled slightly more in the second half, with a lot of pressure coming down Brighton’s left side.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 6.5
Was arguably slightly at fault for both Brighton’s goals, but was largely solid in defence.
CB) Nacho Monreal – 6.0
The Spaniard is a mystery at times, and was fairly poor today. He stood off the Brighton attackers far too often, and was poor in the air.
LB) Kieran Gibbs – 7.0
The most solid of Arsenal’s defenders, provided good attacking width down the left side.
