Arsenal player ratings v Watford – Leno saves us from another awayday embarrassment

A win is a win and so that is good, right? Well, yes, but also a resounding no, why? because we were rank poor again and my player ratings will reflect that, I will not gloss over the failings just because we won, a win that came about because of a goalkeeping howler and because our opponents went down to ten men, not that we took full advantage.

As the game went on, I honestly thought we would concede, the Hornets looked far more likely to find the back of the net than what we did and I tell you now, we play like that against Napoli and a two-goal lead will not be enough.

Arsenal player ratings against Napoli with two players 9/10

The boys did excellent against one of the best teams in Italian football and fully deserved the win over Napoli, in fact, the only real disappointment is that we never won by more.

The change in performance from the Everton game was huge, this was an Arsenal display that was a pleasure to experience, they played great as a team unit with some great individual performances.

Arsenal Ratings.

Petr Cech – 6

Cech only gets a six simply because he was never really called on to make any significant saves or for that matter, make any howlers.

Crystal Palace leave Arsenal three-falling out of CL spots

Crystal Palace beat Arsenal at Selhurst Park, leaving the visitors hopes of finishing inside the top four very slim.

The Eagles earned a well-deserved 3-0 win over a lacklustre Gunners side, thanks to goals from Andros Townsend, Yohan Cabaye and Luka Milivojevic.

Crystal Palace, who are officially sponsored by the Mansion Group; owner of successful casino brands like Casino.com, were picking up their fifth win in six Premier League outings, but still came into the match as underdogs.

Arsenal have been out of sorts in recent months, but have such quality in the side that you know they will bounce back to form, it just didn’t happen for us against our London rivals.
