PLAYER RATINGS: Arsenal 0-3 Manchester City

Who played well and who had a game to forget at Wembley in the Carabao Cup Final?

Player Ratings:


Ospina 5 – Could have done better for the opening goal after running way off his line to stop Aguero.

Bellerin  5 – Poor performance, was beaten easily on a few occasions.

Mustafi 3 – Had a terrible performance after his desperate defending gifted Man City the opening goal.

Koscielny 5 – Didn’t do enough to mark the City players for the second goal.

Chambers 5 – Beaten too easily for City’s third goal.

Monreal 6 – Will be disappointed after he was again forced off the field due to injury.

Xhaka 4 – Showed no interest in winning the ball back and allowed City to advance.

Wilshere 5 – Lost his cool towards the end and didn’t offer much going forward.

Ramsey 5 – When things got tough, he gave up.

Ozil 4 – Wasn’t interested in doing his defensive duties and didn’t offer anything other than an early cross. His set pieces were woeful.

Aubameyang 6 – Missed a few good chances but was isolated for most of the game.

Subs used: Kolasinac, Welbeck, Iwobi
