Arsenal player ratings vs Sheffield United – Premier League

LENO 6

About the only thing he had to do was pick the ball out of his net. Not a lot he could do though.

GABRIEL 7

Showed composure in the face of Sheffield United’s tenacious pressing. Strong.

LUIZ 5

Lucky not to be booked at least for shirt-grabbing and generally struggled to get a grip.

TIERNEY 7

Enjoys this tucked-in role – it allows him to stride forward with the ball to good effect.

BELLERIN 8

Encouraged forward whenever possible, wing-play looked enterprising and claimed two assists.

ELNENY 5

Often squeezed out to right-back today, he struggles to look convincing in any role.

CEBALLOS 7

Always seemed to be the man at the heart of the Arsenal play and was missed after he went off.

SAKA 7

Showed brilliant patience to take his chance to end a great week with a far post header.

WILLIAN 5

Drifted through a lot of the game and really struggled for some reason to get involved.

NKETIAH 5

Given a chance to challenge Lacazette for his position he struggled to put forward a case.

AUBAMEYANG 6

Brilliant dipping shot and an overhead kick about the size of things in a quite game.
