West Brom 0-6 Arsenal PLAYER RATINGS: Auba grabs a treble as Saka and Laca shine

New and Exclusive Gooner Merchandise

Aaron Ramsdale (GK) - 8/10 - A clean sheet on an excellent debut. Showed anticipation to save well. Good distributiuon. And wished Gooners in the away end a safe trip home. A good night all round

Calum Chambers (RB) - 6.5/10 - Won player of the season at Fulham. But not at right back. Because he's not a right back. Still a future for him if Arteta plays him more centrally or as a defensive pivot. 

Rob Holding (CB) - 7.5/10 - A good run out from our startingly bald centre back

Sead Kolasinac (CB) - 5/10 - Not quite sure how Kola became Arsenal's eighth highest paid player. Won't be for too much longer as Arteta and Edu are planning an August exit  

Nuno Tavares (LB) - 7.5/10 - Our summer signing from Benfica had a really promising game. Looked tenacious while supplementing more attacking colleagues

Granit Xhaka (CM) - 7/10 - Not quite show how or why he was handed a long-term contract at the age of 29. But a tidy display albeit one against callow Baggies youngsters for the most part. City await

Mohamed Elneny (CM) - 7/10 - Neat and tidy and looked to play the ball forward. Which was nice

Martin Odegaard (AM) - 8/10 - An exciting display from an exciting player.  At his creative best when he plays between the lines. A wonderful assist for the third goal.

Nicolas Pepe (RW) - 8.5/10 - Hit the woodwork twice in an influential performance full of running. Let's hope he can play at the same level on Saturday

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (ST) - 9/10 -
Form is temporary. Class is permanent. 

Bukayo Saka (LW) - 9/10 -
One of our own. And don't we love him for it


Ainsley Maitland-Niles - 6/10 - Good to see AMN get a good receoption from baggies fans after his spell at the Hawthorns last season. Wish he would accept a spell at right-back because he won't break into the Arsenal midfield on a regualr basis under Arteta 

Alexandre Lacazette - 8/10 -
Outstaning finish for his goal moments after coming on

Gabriel Martinelli - 7/10 - 
Our Brazilian Olympic gold medallist came on late in the game. Nearly scored at the death.

    And then these same players go up to Man City and get their heads kicked in. Why? because they weren't playing WBA's under 12's side. This article sums up the fan base going mad about a win v a championship side. WBA were the level for nearly all our overrated players
