Madrid based newspaper AS don't hold back with their player ratings.

In their report on Arsenal's 2-0 defeat to Barcelona in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday, the Spanish publication gave a performance rating for each of the players who started the match at the Emirates Stadium—except Mesut Ozil.

The German midfielder was given no grade for his efforts despite playing the whole game.

That compared unfavourably with the judgement passed on Petr Cech and his back four, who all received a mark of two out of a possible three.

Barca, on the other hand, were awarded six top grades, with Lionel Messi leading the way after his brace proved the difference between the sides.
