Player ratings: Arsenal 1-3 Manchester City

Fresh Arsenal newsletter

Arsenal fell to defeat and surrendered their Premier League lead at the top of the table in a disappointing night at The Emirates.

Arsenal had themselves to blame for all three City goals and in the end Bukayo Saka’s brave first-half penalty meant nothing.

Here’s how I rated the players:
Aaron Ramsdale – 7
Oleksandr Zinchenko – 6
Gabriel Magalhaes – 6
William Saliba – 6
Takehiro Tomiyasu – 6
Jorginho – 7
Granit Xhaka – 6 (8 first half, 4 in the second!)
Martin Odegaard – 5
Gabriel Martinelli – 5
Bukayo Saka – 7
Eddie Nketiah – 5

Man of the match: Jorginho. Into the team at late notice, he was the biggest worry for most fans when the line ups came out, but he was probably Arsenal’s best player and can be happy with his performance. Notable mention for Saka.
