The decision about which Arsenal star to give the Man of the Match award to was an especially hard one this weekend after a brilliant team performance saw the Gunners shoot down Chelsea. The TV pundits gave it to Alex Iwobi who had a huge impact but them so did Walcott and he added a lot of defensive work to his attacking threat. Oz\il was brilliant pulling the strings, the two centre backs did a brilliant job stopping Costa and all and Bellerin was brilliant but Alexis Sanchez is my pick because he got the ball rolling by robbing Cahill and beating Courtois, he provided the assist of Ozil and was involved in almost all our forward play.
Cech 6 – Tidy and assured but the defence left him little to do.
Bellerin 8 – Great going forward and solid in defense including that brilliant tackle on Pedro.
Mustafi 8 – Fantastic from the new man. Really looks the part. Gave nothing away.
Koscielny 8 – In control as usual. Costa in pocket. Arsenal have a top quality pairing now.
Monreal 7.5 – Very good all round from Nacho.
Coquelin 6.5 – Was playing well until the injury.
Cazorla 7.5 – Kept everything moving nicely from the middle.
Walcott 8 – Great energy, work rate and impact. Tracked back, caused all sorts of problems and scored.
Ozil 8 – Did his number 10 magician job pulling the strings and scored.
Iwobi 7.5 – Excellent linking up and going forward but left Monreal exposed once or twice.
Alexis 8.5 – Top drawer from the Chilean who is really growing into that central role.
Xhaka 7 – Great passing and reading of the game.
Gibbs 6.5 – Good cameo from the left back.
Giroud 6 – Looked okay but needs game time to sharpen up.
