Arsenal’s Alexis Sanchez has ended his goal drought.
Arsenal claimed a 2-1 victory against QPR to maintain their top three positions in the table after goals from Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez.
Olivier Giroud got his 10th PL goal of the season and Alexis ended his 7-game goal drought with an astonishing finish.
Here is how the Arsenal players rated against QPR.
- GK) David Ospina – 6
Strong catching but was dodgy, went distributing and could’ve done better on QPR’s goal.
- RB) Hector Bellerin – 7
Defended against Hoillet maturely, as the Spaniard continues his progress.
- CB) Gabriel – 6
Was a difficult day for the Brazilian on his first star away from home in the Premier League compounded by his hamstring injury.
- CB) Per Mertesacker – 7
Responded well to being dropped and was dominant in the air whilst commanding back line
- LB) Kieran Gibbs – 6
Could’ve done better on the goal, but marked Matt Phillips well for the most part.
CDM) Francis Coquelin – 8
His importance to the side very evident as he wore a protective mask and protected his back four very efficiently.
- CM) Santi Cazorla – 7
After a nervy first half, the real Cazorla stood up and dominated the game as many know he can.
CAM) Mesut Ozil – 7
Could’ve scored a wonder goal in the second half and grew as Arsenal gained more control of the match.
AMR) Tomas Rosicky – 7
Main reason behind the increase in tempo as the 34-year-old burst down the right to almost create an opening goal.
AML) Alexis Sanchez – 8
Ended his goal drought with aplomb after scoring an brilliant solo goal.
- CF) Olivier Giroud – 8
Held the ball up marvelously and his sheer determination opened the scoring.
Laurent Koscielny – 6
Came on for the injured Gabriel in the first half and could’ve gotten closer to Austin before the forward fired home.
Danny Welbeck – N/A
Came on for the dying embers of the game as Arsenal ran down the clock.
Aaron Ramsey – N/A
Made his comeback from a hamstring injury late on.
