Although it was not as impressive in general for Arsenal yesterday, there were some good individual performances from players like Walcott, Akpom, Chamberlain and particularly young Reine-Adelaide but our best player for me was Jack Wilshere who was involved in most of our good moves and looks to be getting back to his best.
Cech 8 – Did everything well without being tested much.
Bellerin 7.5 – More of an attacking threat in second half.
Chambers 8 – Our best defender. Comfortable, composed and on the front foot.
Gabriel 7 – One rash tackle but a solid game.
Monreal 7 – Some good stuff but a couple of mistakes.
Arteta 7 – Got better and controlled tempo but nearly put us in trouble once.
Cazorla 7.5 – Quieter than usual from the Spaniard.
Reine-Adelaide 8.5 – Looks like we have a real star of the future. Bold, dynamic and tricky and provided an assist.
Ozil 7.5 – Looked a bit jaded but still showed his class.
Wilshere 9 – Fantastic feet, precision passing and breezed past players with style.
Walcott 8 – Great movement all day and well taken goal after missing a few chances earlier.
Akpom 7.5 – Great desire and application, keeps on looking the part.
Chamberlain 8 – Brilliant cameo from the Ox who frightened the life out of their left back.
Ramsey 7.5 – Good influence and case made for starting in the middle.
Hayden 7 – Impressive 15 minutes from the youngster.
Giroud 6 – Did not get a chance to do much at all.
