Arsenal player ratings vs Burnley: Xhaka, Bellerin and Willan dismal

A

rsenal’s miserable start to the season continued on Sunday night as they lost 1-0 to Burnley.

Was largely a spectator and could do nothing about the goal as Aubameyang’s header looped over him.

Started this season well, however has dropped off in recent weeks. Ainsley Maitland-Niles is surely pushing him for his spot. Booked.

One of Arsenal’s better players, but the bar was hardly high tonight. 

Does not look like the powerful centre-back he was earlier this season. Lost Chris Wood in the first-half and the striker should’ve made it 1-0 then.

Got up and down from left-back and created some of Arsenal’s best chances. Better than many players out there.

Another one who had an off-night. Lucky not to be shown a red card when he pushed James Tarkowski in the face before a corner.

Just when Arsenal were on top and looked like scoring, the midfielder lost his head and was sent off. Can have no excuses for his actions, especially in the VAR era.

Was anonymous once again and offered very little going forward. The likes of Emile Smith Rowe will expect to start against Southampton now surely?

Asked to play as a No10 again, but struggled to get into the game. Was taken off after an hour following Xhaka’s red card.

One of the few to come out of this with any pride. Arsenal’s best attacking player on a miserable night.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 4

Was actually better than he has been in recent weeks, but then had his confidence hit when he headed into his own net.

Dani Ceballos (Lacazette 60’) 5

Came on and tried to up the tempo, but couldn’t get Arsenal going.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles (Bellerin 74’) 5

Came on for Bellerin, who was struggling, and looked solid. Should start on Wednesday against Saints.

Eddie Nketiah (Willian 82’) N/A

Subs not used: Runarsson, Mustafi, Willock, Smith Rowe
