Arsenal snatched a 1-1 draw against Fulham as Eddie Nketiah scored a last-minute equaliser to earn them a point.

Here’s how Mikel Arteta’s side rated at the Emirates...

Mat Ryan 6

Had very little to do other than pick the ball out of his net after Fulham scored a penalty. Aside from that, a quiet home debut for the Australian.

Hector Bellerin 6

A fairly solid game from the Spaniard. Thought he had set up Dani Ceballos for a goal with a nicely dinked cross, but it was ruled out for offside.

Rob Holding 6

Much better than Gabriel alongside him. Will have been frustrated to concede as otherwise Fulham created very little.

Gabriel 4

In for Pablo Mari, but didn’t step up to the plate. Doesn’t look as solid at the back when not playing alongside David Luiz.

Granit Xhaka 6

As has been the way when playing left-back, he had very little defence work to do. Saw plenty of the ball and didn’t do much wrong.

Mohamed Elneny 5

Broke up the play fine, but didn’t have the required passing going forward to open up Fulham. Taken off with just over 20 minutes to play.

Dani Ceballos 7 | Star man

One of Arsenal’s better players during a poor game. Had a goal ruled out for offside in the first-half and it was his shot that was tapped home by Nketiah.

Bukayo Saka 6

Was sensational on Thursday night, but had a quiet game against Fulham. Struggled to find a way through a defence that sat deep.

Emile Smith Rowe 5

Was superb in Prague, but struggled against Fulham. Was hounded and pressed well by Mario Lemina and Andre-Frank Zambo Anguissa.

Gabriel Martinelli 6

Another of Arsenal’s better players. Looked lively going forward and created a few chances. Almost scored early on too.

Alexandre Lacazette 6

Linked the play and created some chances for others, but wasn’t as threatening as he has been recently. Went off injured with 20 minutes to go.

Substitutes

Nicolas Pepe (Bellerin 67’) 5

Off the bench but couldn’t make the difference and missed a glorious chance.

Thomas Partey (Elneny 67’) 6

A solid little cameo off the bench and showed why Arsenal missed him from the start.

Eddie Nketiah (Lacazette 70’) 7

Came off the bench to snatch a point with a tap-in. Could get more games if Lacazette’s injury is bad.

Unused: Leno, Cedric, Chambers, Mari, Willian, Nelson.
