Arsenal player ratings: Mesut Ozil scores perfect 10 against poor Ludogorets

Posted by

Arsenal claimed all three points against Ludogorets as expected on Wednesday night, running out 6-0 winners at the Emirates.

The second half saw a slightly different approach from the Gunners; less complacent with more sucker punch.

Ludogorets were less threatening on the counter attack after the interval but that was down to Arsenal’s sheer dominance.

A comfortable win, no doubt, but here is how the Arsenal players performed with individual ratings.

David Ospina – 7/10

Had a busier first half but didn’t put a foot wrong, and saved Arsenal more than once.

Kieran Gibbs – 6/10

Not really challenged but played a role in Arsenal blocking the Bulgarians out.

Hector Bellerin – 6.5/10

Like Gibbs, Bellerin never looked troubled but offered a bit more going forward. Comfortable.

Laurent Koscielny – 7/10

Typically lead by example, and a super tackle lead to Ozil’s first goal.

Shkodran Mustafi – 6/10

Solid but an error almost cost Arsenal a goal in the first half.

Francis Coquelin – 8/10

The brick that kept Arsenal’s wall stand in midfield. A reliable presence that looks back to his best after injury.

Santi Cazorla – 7/10

Controlled the game with ease.

Mesut Ozil – 10/10

Three goals, one assist. Pulled the strings for Arsenal and caused havoc throughout for their Bulgarian opposition whilst scoring a hat-trick. An impressive performance if you ever saw one.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 8/10

Had a point to prove tonight and did just that with two assists and a goal. A selection headache awaits Mr Wenger.

Theo Walcott – 6.5/10

Not the greatest performance but Walcott did score a cracking goal outside the box.

Alexis Sanchez – 8.5/10

The scorer of a horn of a goal, which gave Arsenal an early opener to drive on and thrash Ludogorets. Substituted midway through the second half to rest him for upcoming domestic fixtures.
