The Greek international has been very unlucky not to register a clean sheet for the club yet. The experienced central defender has had six goals put past him in his three games so far but it’s hard to pin any of them onto him directly, as those around him have often let him down in the Arsenal backline. Most fans seem to think Shkodran Mustafi is the problem and will be keen to see Sokratis partner Laurent Koscielny when the Frenchman is fit again.
This Sunday the Gunners travel to Wales to take on Cardiff City in their fourth Premier League clash of the season and it will be an interesting encounter. Cardiff are yet to score a goal this season whilst Arsenal are yet to keep a clean sheet. One of the clubs will have to break their streak and it looks more likely that it will be Sokratis and co who will be getting the club’s first clean sheet of the season.

8 at least he puts his body in the way of shots as well

Solod 7 thus far, expect an improvement though

He can do better. 5 so far but he's solid, once he really settles in I'm expecting at least 8/10 from him

7 looks solid, would love Koscienly next to him! Lichtsteiner RB, Monreal LB and Leno! Torriera sitting in front! Not badm

8, he is not the problem!

8/10, most of the problems we’re having at the back line are coming from Mustafi, he’s been giving Sokratis unnecessary works at the back.

7/10 still needs to avoid making silly errors. Hopefully this will come with time otherwise think he is doing ok.

7. We’ve still conceded a lot but he’s been pretty solid

The Gunners are pleased with Sokratis’ start to life at The Emirates and will be keen to see him continue his form.
