Arsenal vs. Blackburn Rovers: Ranking the Gunners' Players in 7-1 Victory

Arsenal thumped relegation-threatened Blackburn Rovers 7-1 at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League to get their Champions League charge back on track after four league matches without victory.

Here's the ratings for how each player got on against Rovers.

The Gunners made a dream start with Robin van Persie's goal after only one minute, while the Dutchman went on to record his hat trick during the game after scoring all three goals from in or around the six-yard box.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain scored twice and put in a star performance, while the returning Thierry Henry also scored his first Premier League goal for the Gunners in a little more than five years.

Mikel Arteta and Morten Gamst Pedersen were also on target for their respective sides.

The Gunners dominated the match from start to finish and the scoreline didn't flatter them in the slightest as they out-passed, out-fought and out-manoeuvred a thoroughly dreadful Blackburn side.
