Arsenal 3-1 Aston Villa: Arsenal's Player Ratings

Arsenal secured a comfortable win against Aston Villa in what was an interesting game of football at the Emirate Stadium earlier tonight.

Mikel Arteta would be really pleased with the performance of his players especially in the second half.

In this article, we will take a look at how well some Arsenal players performed during their Premier League clash against Aston Villa.

Ramsdale (7/10): The talented goalkeeper proves to Arteta once again that he deserves to be starting every game for the club. The former Sheffield goalkeeper made a couple of saves in the first half to deny Aston Villa a lead.

Tomiyasu (6/10): The Asian right back is currently enjoying life at the Emirates since he made his move from Italy earlier this summer. Tomiyasu managed to keep out Watkin's threat all through the game against Aston Villa. Just as he discharged his defensive duties effectively, Tomiyasu did a good job offensively as well.

Ben White (5/10): Actually not the best performance from the England International but he did well enough to cut out Aston Villa's threats all through the game.

Gabriel (6/10): It was a very solid display from the South American. Gabriel formed a great partnership with Ben White tonight and stopped Villa from getting more shots on goal.

Tavares (6/10): Tavares made a really good contribution against Aston Villa. The Left-Back was able to balance his offensive and defensive duties.

Lokonga (6/10): Lokonga's partnership with Partey in Arsenal's midfield was one of the major highlight of the game. The young talent won more tackles than any other player on the pitch as he stopped Aston Villa from controlling the game.

Partey (7/10): It was an impressive performance from Thomas Partey. The sensational midfielder scored the first goal of the night to give Arsenal a deserving early lead.

Saka (6/10): It was a nice performance by Arsenal's most talented youngster. Saka was Arsenal's major influence on the flank as he troubles Aston Villa's defence with his incredible pace.

Smith Rowe (6/10): It was not a bad performance from Smith Rowe. The young midfielder is brewing in confidence at the moment and Arsenal fans would hope things continue like that for him till the end of the season.

Aubameyang (5/10): Aubameyang doubled Arsenal's lead in the first half to take the game further away from Aston Villa. However, his overall performance is still considered average as he failed to make any other significant contribution in the game.

Lacazette (6/10): The Frenchman was introduced back into the team after his heroics against Crystal Palace. Lacazette didn't disappoint as his work-rate was exceptional in the game against Aston Villa.
