Arsenal Cruised to a comfortable 3-0 win today against the Tigers at the KC Stadium with Aaron Ramsey opening the score sheet before Lukas Podolski grabbed the second and the third in both half’s of the match. Rounding it off with captain of the Arsenal Mikel Arteta loosing a tooth.
Here are my ratings for the Match:
Szczesny: 6.5/10 – Had very little to do all through the game. kept his cool and watched his defenders do their job. Overall a good game from the goalkeeper.
Sagna: 7/10 – The Frenchman was exceptional today. Went forward almost all the time causing problems for Hull City down the right hand flank and still managed to keep his line. Overall a good game from the 31-year-old.
Koscielny: 7/10 – Good outing for the Frenchman. Once again proved why he is Wenger first choice in the starting eleven ahead of Vermaelen. Paired well with his Co-defenders and kept his line clean.
Mertesacker: 7/10 – Did well in defence today. Good outing for the German. Probably because he had his favourite pair Koscielny in line-up. The two were top form.
Monreal: 6.5/10 – Had a good game at left back today compared to his last against Wigan. Though he was caught wanting on the a few occasions but made up for it whenever he went forward as he caused alot of treat as well. Overall a good game from the lad.
Arteta: 6.5/10 – Captained the side today. Was an assured presence in front of the defence. Lost a tooth while contesting an Aeriel ball. Overall a good game from the Spaniard.
Ozil: 7/10 – A good game to mark his come-back from injury after over a month. Went forward as always creating chances for his team mates. Should have gotten a penalty early in the first half. Overall a good game from the German.
Ramsey: 8/10 – 5 star performance. Good way to mark his first start in a premier league game after a four month lay-off. Worked hard. Bursted forward as always and caused Hull City alot of problems with he runs. Got the opener and set up Podolski for the second. Little wonder he got the man of the match award after the game.
Cazorla: 7/10 – Another wonderful display from the Spaniard. Showed class all around. Set up Ramsey for the first goal.
Podolski: 8/10 – He was top form. Got himself in position to fire home two goals again!. Simple as that. Great game from the German.
Giroud: 6/10 – Had a good game. Could have easily scored a goal had he chased the ball a little early, though he got the ball stil and played it across the top bar. Seemed to have picked up a knock and had to be substituted. Overall a good game from the Frenchman
Flamini: 5.5/10 – Came in late in the second half to calm the game. Gave Arteta a helping hand in putting the game to rest. Overall a good game from the Frenchman.
Sanogo: N/A – Came in too late in the second half.
