Europa League 2017/18: Arsenal 6-0 BATE Borisov, Player Ratings


Just wasn

Just wasn't their night

BATE Borisov

Denis Scherbitski - 5/10

His reaction to save a deflected Danny Welbeck effort was the only thing to go his way tonight. His defence didn't help one bit.

Maksim Volodko - 5/10

Beaten too easily and too often by a driven Theo Walcott. Also happened to be the only player in the game to be booked.

Nemanja Milunovic - 5/10

Had Giroud contained for most of the game but didn't read the Frenchman's intentions with those cute little balls though.

Denis Polyakov - 5/10

It was perfectly set up. The winger had the ball, he saw the intention, timed his run and when the opportunity presented itself, he tucked it away beautifully. A stunning (own) goal that got the barely-filled Emirates to its feet.

Alexel Rios - 6/10

Probably the only defender who wanted to do some form of attacking when possible. Struggled with getting past the half-way line though.

Stanislav Dragun - 5.5/10

One of the better performers of the game for the side from Belarus and did get one key pass to his name.

Yevgeniy Berezkin - 6/10

Probably BATE's best player with his control of the ball in midfield. Kept Coquelin busy and won all of his 9 duels in the centre.

Igor Stasevich - 5/10

Was dispossessed nearly everytime he got the ball into the Arsenal third but did work more than his teammates to create something that resembled a chance.

Mirko Ivanic - 5/10

Couldn't do much playing as the #10 on the field given his forwards were missing but did string together a couple of chances and worked hard to push the ball forward.

Mikhail Gordejchuk - 5/10

Took advantage of Maitland-Niles' eagerness to bomb forward with his positioning on the field but couldn't create much from them throughout the game.

Vitali Rodionov - 5/10

Must've been glad as he was taken off given Calum Chambers and Rob Holding contained him ruthless all throughout.


Nikolai Signevich - 6/10

Came on early in the second half and played mostly on the right trying to drift in. Did cause a few problems for Arsenal.

Jasse Tuominen - 6/10

Was asked to get at Arsenal's defence in a more direct fashion but just didn't have enough time to find his rhythm.

Evgeni Yablonski - 6/10

Wasn't long enough on the field to have an impact.
