Arsenal player ratings against Manchester United as Saka makes statement and Nketiah picks winner



How the Gunners fared individually in their Premier League game against the Red Devils at the Emirates Stadium

Aaron Ramsdale: A great save to keep Marcus Rashford out was quickly followed by a crash that resulted in a draw by Martinez. Mixed day for curious Gareth Southgate. 6.
Ben White: He struggled against the pace of electric Marcus Rashford in the first half and couldn’t contribute to the attack as he would have liked. Halfway hooked. A rare day off in this season 5.

William Saliba: He helped play the offside trap at times and was decent in the physical battle with Weghorst. Lui tried to help tackle Rashford but the England striker was irresistible, so hard to say Saliba excelled there. 6.

Gabriel: Good in the air and United refused to budge an inch when it came to physical. The Brazilian once again made a good impression in front of his future opponent Jakob Kiwior. 7.

Oleksandr Zinchenko: Pushed back a bit by Anthony and couldn’t influence the game in possession as he would have liked. The delivery isn’t as good as usual but he still managed some real quality moments on the ball. 6. Thomas Partey: gave the ball leading to Marcus Rashford’s goal and lost the clash to add insult to injury. However, recovered to have a decent ball possession game. 6.
Granit Xhaka: A superb cross on Eddie Nketiah’s goal reminded us of the impact the Swiss midfielder can have in attack. Disciplined defensively. A solid game. 7.

Martin Odegaard: Make no mistake about this season-long symphony for Arsenal Martin Odegaard is the conductor. He led the players onto the pitch and the fans into the stadium with a ruthless attitude. Moments of real quality even on the ball. 8.

Bukayo Saka: The kind of performance in a big game that not only heralds himself as one of the best young players, but also the best players in the Premier League. He added long-range shooting to his game and was unfortunate not to score twice. 9.

Eddie Nketiah: Another strong performance from the Arsenal striker who really takes his chance at the top. I pressed relentlessly, equalized well and scored a goal on top of that. A great missed opportunity, but the best attackers were undeterred and his wild finish proved to be a winner. 8th.

Gabriel Martinelli: Arsenal tried to give him the ball quite often, but his effect was limited. A quiet day for the Brazilian who was poor with his free kick. 6.


Takehiro Tomiyasu: Usually a great one-on-one defender, but struggled to keep Marcus Rashford in check. Also collided in Ramsdale in front of Martinez’s goal. 5.

Leandro Trossard: Great dribbling leading to the winning goal. A few quick steps to help Arsenal stay late on the pitch. A solid start. 7.

Rob Holding: Substituted too late to affect the game. n / A.
