Player Ratings

Arsenal 3-1 West Brom Player Ratings: Pepe and Saka shine

The attacking duo were excellent, coupled with Willian's superb clinching free-kick decided what was an academic fixture

Arsenal bounced back from the disappointment in midweek in the Europa League to record a somewhat academic league win over West Brom at the Emirates.

But which players stood out?

  • In a miserable season, Saka has been one of the few bright sparks for an Arsenal team desperately seeking them.

    He's been switched around various positions, from left wing to left back, and has always delivered, as he did here. His vision allowed him to run in behind and hit the by line, before cutting back to Emile Smith-Rowe to volley home.

    But it is his all-action approach to the game which is so pleasing. No Arsenal player made more touches in the opposition penalty area, and he's the type of talent the Gunners should be building their future around.

  • Pepe's performances remain much-maligned from the Arsenal fans and it's all the more frustrating seeing what he is capable of.

    His stunning strike, cutting in on his left to blast an unstoppable effort into the top corner, was a glimpse of what Mikel Arteta's side just haven't seen enough of this season.

  • Matheus Pereira is almost certainly good enough to remain at this level even as his team returns to the Championship.

    It took him a little time to become accustomed to the faster pace of the Premier League but now that he's at this level, he continues to be a standout. He tore Chelsea apart a few weeks ago, and here he scored a brilliant individual goal.

    He collected the ball just inside his own half and drove directly at Arsenal's vulnerable defence, before composing himself to slot into the corner of the net.
