I know a lot of Arsenal fans will disagree with me but I am not picking Theo Walcott as my Man of the Match from the 4-1 thumping of Hull City just to be different. I have seen a lot of the papers going on about Alexis Sanchez but for me the Chilean was not at his best and should have scored the penalty after taking it from the usual man Cazorla. In fact the closest to Walcott for me were Francis Coquelin and Alex Iwobi but Theo got the nod because he really stretched Hull with his pace and movement and took hos goal very well.
Cech 6 – Rash tackle for penalty could have been costly.
Bellerin 7 – Excellent energy, attacking threat and defensive discipline.
Mustafi 7 – Looking like the real deal.
Koscielny 7 – Always in control.
Monreal 7 – Nullified their main threat with little help from Iwobi.
Coquelin 8 – Superb again from our midfield warrior. No wonder Xhaka is on the bench.
Cazorla 6 – Not the best game from the Spaniard who was lucky not to be sent off and looked tired.
Walcott 8.5 – Can be almost unplayable when he is like this.
Ozil 7 – Would have got a better score but for his missing a great chance.
Iwobi 8 – Very good from the youngster but he does neglect his tracking back too often.
Alexis 7.5 – Two goal and the second one was class and timely but still not convinced by him through the middle.
Xhaka 7 – Wow! What a strike and did well in general controlling the game from the middle.
Elneny and Perez – No time to make any impact.
