This win for Arsenal over Premier League rivals Manchester United saw a great all round performance from the Gunners, both in attack and defence and there were lots of candidates for the Man of the Match, such as Petr Cech who made three crucial saves, Alexis Sanchez for his two great goals and Theo Walcott for his best game at centre forward, but for me it was Mesut Ozil who stood out with his sublime passing, movement, vision and work rate.
Cech 8 – Key saves at key moments. Brilliant.
Bellerin 7 – Put in a real shift all game.
Mertesacker 8 – Dealt really well with the tricky Martial. 10 clearances and four interceptions.
Gabriel 7.5 . Not as eye catching as BFG but still a very solid game.
Monreal 8 – Didn´t give United a sniff and helped well attacking down the left.
Coquelin 7 – Busier after the goals but always in control. Booked.
Cazorla 8 – Disciplined, determined and full of quality.
Ramsey 7 – Better from him but a bad miss. Needs a goal to settle.
Ozil 9 – Best game for Arsenal. Ran the show with his silky skills.
Alexis 8.5 – Brilliant all round game and two fantastic goals. Hope his injury is just minor.
Walcott 8.5 – All he needed was a goal to cap this superb game.
Giroud 6 – Looked sharp but shot straight at De Gea.
Chamberlain 6 – Lively and useful cameo.
Gibbs – Did what was needed for last 10 minutes.
