Arsenal player ratings v Man City

Despite City’s domination, the German actually had a fairly quiet afternoon. Could do nothing about City’s opening goal.

Difficult game for the Spaniard. Struggled going forward in possession and had a few issues defensively too. Booked.

Was at fault for City’s goal as he allowed Raheem Sterling to head home, but recovered after that and put in a good performance.

The Spaniard’s first game since January 9 and he held his own. Like Holding, Mari started slowly but grew into the game and did well.

The Scotsman’s first start since the middle of January and he put in a solid display. Hasn’t lost his understanding with Saka down the left.

His usual busy self in midfield and tried to shut down as many Man City attacks as he could. Nothing sensational from the Egyptian, but solid enough.

Despite the defeat, gave a decent account of himself. Was outrun early on, but dug in and didn’t really put a foot wrong.

Worked hard off the ball and tracked back well, however he offered little going forward. A frustrating performacne in the end.

Just not the Norwegian’s day. He has been impressive since signing on loan from Real Madrid, but couldn’t get into this game. Shackled by Fernandinho.

Arsenal’s best attacking player – again – and looked the most likely to make something happen. Linked up well with Tierney.

Just wasn’t in the game at all and struggled to hold the ball up. Looked slightly better towards the end when he shifted out left.

Alexandre Lacazette (Odegaard 73’) 5

A few nice touches from the Frenchman but he had little time to make an impact. Perhaps should have started.

Emile Smith Rowe (Pepe 73’) 5

Came on and worked his socks off but couldn’t stop Arsenal falling to defeat.

David Luiz (Holding 82’) N/A

Dani Ceballos (Elneny 86’) N/A

Subs not used: Ryan, Gabriel, Cedric , Willian Martinelli.
