Arsenal v Slavia Prague - Player Ratings

Last updated : 28 October 2007 By Luis Anaconda

If you're going to be picky, we were 6-0 up with 30 minutes to go and let them off the hook. God, we're spoilt…

Manuel Almunia - 7 - Probably more threatened by an attack from the benched German than Slavia's forward line but pulled off a couple of fine saves to keep another clean sheet.

Bacary Sagna - 7 - Perfectly competent but could have been a bit more adventurous.

Kolo Toure - 7 - Normal solid self, but disappointing that he didn't try to shoot at any time.

William Gallas - 7 - The slowcoach in our back four had a quiet game but didn't appear to pick up an injury.

Gael Clichy - 6 - Not really tested but was guilty of some very sloppy passing in the first half.

Emmanuel Eboue - 6 - Was having a shocker early on but his game picked up markedly when we were 3-0 up and provided some exciting moments in the second half.

Mathieu Flamini - 7 - Nice solid game, predictable booking.

Cesc Fabregas - 8 - Absolutely everywhere on the pitch and two magnificent goals - what more can you ask…

Alexander Hleb - 9 - Better than Fabregas is about as high praise as you can give to an Arsenal player at the moment. Apparently, he can't play on the left though.

Theo Walcott - 8 - A couple of bright moments before his first goal but sensational in parts afterwards. Shame he couldn't have got a hat-trick, but then look what happened to the last Englishmen to do that.

Emmanuel Adebayor - 7 - Slavia's defence will probably have nightmares about facing a forward of his size with such great movement, but the keeper can be thankful that Ade made him look good for once when his powerful header was saved. That he was taken off demonstrates what a vital role he will play in our next two Premier League games.

Tomas Rosicky - 6 - Unlucky with a shot that hit the bar, but looks rusty.

Gilberto Silva - 6 - Such a reassuring presence from the bench.

Nicklas Bendtner - 7 - His bleating may be a bit tiresome, but there can be no doubting his hunger (not that type of hunger, Robinson) or his ability.
