There were strong performances throughout the Arsenal team as we played host to a very strong and defensively organised Chelsea side yesterday, with players like Coquelin, Ramsey and Cazorla as well as all four defenders having a shout for the Man of the Match award but I am giving it to Mesut Ozil who linked our play and was all over the pitch and never stopped until the end.
Ospina 6. Perhaps lucky with the Oscar penalty claim but his usual calm and confident display.
Bellerin 7. Did very little wrong and got forward tirelessly to help our attacks.
Mertesacker 7. Strong display from the BFG and some key tackles.
Koscielny 7. Quick, powerful and aggressive as usual.
Monreal 7. Another solid display from the Spaniard and some good work going forward as well.
Coquelin 7.5 Did a great job especially staying in control after the booking
Cazorla 7. Did a job for the team but I feel his talents are wasted in a deeper role.
Ramsey 7.5 A much better display on the right from the Welshman.
Ozil 8. I am forgiving him that late miss because he must have been tired after his non-stop game and at least he was there.
Alexis 7. His energy and desire were vital but his decisions and final ball let him down at times.
Giroud 6.5 Worked hard in a thankless task against the Chelsea defence but struggled to influence the game.
Welbeck 6. Did alright but had no space to use his pace.
Walcott 6. Little time to impress but looked sharper.
