You would normally expect Arsenal to have had a really tough task defending our goal for the keeper to get the Man of the Match award but it was not like that. David Ospina was vital to us getting a point though as we failed to score again and Sunderland had a few very good chances to nick it.
Ospina 8 – Was alert and brilliant when we needed him and with 100 percent distribution accuracy you cannot ask for more.
Bellerin 7 – Worked well and was always available but without unlocking their defence.
Mertesacker 6 – Rarely troubled but his lack of pace could have been punished.
Koscielny 7 – Sharp, on the front foot and generally won his duels.
Gibbs 7 – Looked rusty at first but became a real threat with as many shots and shots on target as Giroud and did his defensive duty well.
Cazorla 7 – A better game for the Spaniard with more touches and accurate passes than anyone.
Ramsey 6 – Could not quite find his top gear and was frustrated.
Ozil 5 – A bit of a shocker from the German.
Wilshere 7 – Pretty impressive from Jack considering his lack of recent play.
Alexis 6 – Can´t fault his efforts but just didn´t come off for him.
Giroud 5.5 – Another fairly ineffectual game but he did improve.
Walcott 7 – Came closest to breakthrough and must start on Sunday.
Rosicky 6 – Good cameo in what might be his final game for the Gunners.
