The Surprising Arsenal Player Rated as the Best by Adrian Clarke and the all-important Players Rating (Video)

The Surprising Arsenal Player Rated as the Best by Adrian Clarke and the all-important Players Rating

Former Arsenal player and now Arsenal pundit Adrian Clarke in his post-match podcast analysis named Francis Coquelin as the best performing defender in the Arsenal squad against Manchester City.

While Adrian Clarke admitted Coquelin inclusion from the start was a surprise, he, however, believed his 56 minutes involvement before substitution proved the manager’s decision to be correct and in fact made a case for Coquelin utilisation in that role in the future.

Clarke’s assessments were made solely on stats including the number of interceptions completed by Coquelin before leaving the pitch but our cumulative players’ rating did not support this, however, he is better than Nacho Monreal, the PFA player of the month.

PLAYER RATINGS:

The controversial referring decisions as expected are being hung onto by some Arsenal supporters as the reasons for the defeat, thus we seek to look around for multiple sources of players rating to see how players from both teams faired.

We combined the ratings from the Manchester Evening StandardThe Telegraph, and The DailyStar to come up with an average or cumulative ratings.

It turns out that City players were better than Arsenal’s all over the pitch, with Peter Cech, Aaron Ramsey and Lacazette rated highly.
