Apart from the keeper who had a bit of a shocker with two big errors which he was lucky to get away with, this FA cup win for Arsenal over Sutton United came through a good team performance against an impressive and committed home team. Lucas Perez was sharp all night and for me just edged out the Ox for our Man of the Match.
Ospina 4 – What. Was. He. Thinking? Twice.
Gabriel 6 – Got forward as much as possible and solid in defence.
Mustafi 6 – Decent game and stood up to pressure well.
Holding 6 – Recovered to play well after early scare when he was almost caught on the ball.
Monreal 7 – Involved in most things. Good show from the Spaniard.
Elneny 6 – Busy and effective but picked up a knock.
Xhaka 6 – Sprayed some good passes around but at times the game passed him by. Good discipline after early booking.
Reine-Adelaide 6 – Grew into game and showed some of his potential.
Lucas 8 – Sharp, influential and dangerous. Good goal settled us down and on way to win.
Iwobi 6 – Decent but struggled to really impact game. Bad tackle slowed him down.
Walcott 7 – Pace and movement always a threat and took his 100th goal well.
Oxlade-Chamberlain 7.5 – Arsenal looked much better after he came on. Impressive and dynamic.
Maitland-Niles 6 – Pretty good cameo from the youngster.
Alexis 7 – Unlucky not to score in his short spell.
