Arsenal player ratings vs Olympiacos

Arsenal were knocked out of the Europa League on Thursday night after a brave display by Olympiacos.

Pape Abou Cisse opened the scoring for the visitors at the Emirates levelling the score on aggregate just after half-time.

But despite chances at both ends the game went to extra-time.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang appeared to win it in the 113th minute only for Youssef El Arabi to score a last-minute winner and send Olympiacos through on away goals.

The Gabon striker had another chance at the death but fluffed his lines in what summed up a humiliating night for the Gunners.

Leno – 6

No chance with the Cisse goal. Left horribly exposed.

Bellerín – 5

Caught upfield at times as Tsmikas and Camara found space in behind him.

Mustafi – 6

Good block to deny Tsimikas after Camara set him free down the left on 19 minutes. And late on to prevent El Arabi enjoying a one-on-one.

David Luiz – 5

Caught ball-watching for the goal and unable to react as Cisse headed home in front of him.

Saka – 5

Unlucky to have yet another assist chalked off for offside.

Ceballos – 6

Nice top knot but gave away possession and unable to make any serious inroads.

Xhaka – 5

Unable to get make any serious impact but did well to fill in at left-back.

Pépé – 7

Unlucky to be fouled by Ba as he raced on to Lacazette’s well-weighted through ball. Forced fine save from Sa late on.

Özil – 3

His nickname should be Simon Templar. At times it’s as if he is The Invisible Man.

Aubameyang – 5

Did his best to plot a way through the visiting defence but they kept laying trap after trap.

Lacazette – 6

Delicious ball through from which Pepe would have scored had he not been hacked down by Ba. Not enough after that sadly.

SUBS:

Torreira for Ceballos (72) 5

Bellerin for Willock (84) 6

Papastathopoulos for Mustafi (103) 5

Martinelli for Lacazette (106) 5
