If it had not been for the sixth Arsenal goal against Ludogorets last night then it would have been Alexis Sanchez who was my pick for the Man of the Match, as the Chilean was brilliant throughout and score the best goal of the night to set us on our way to victory, but I cannot give it to anyone but Mesut Ozil after his first professional hat-trick to cap a great game from the German.
Ospina 7.5 – Busier than expected but was up to the task and made some vital saves.
Bellerin 7 – Good game but not quite his usual attacking impact.
Mustafi 7 – A mistake or two but in general very strong performance.
Koscielny 7 – Similar to his partner at the back.
Gibbs 7 – Did very well on this rare start and may have given the boss a selection headache.
Coquelin 7.5 – I thought the Frenchman was fantastic and a vital part of the win.
Cazorla 7.5 – Brilliant pass for Ozil’s first. Key man in most of our possession play.
Ozil 8.5 – Sublime first touch, fine finishing. He gives Arsenal a real cutting edge.
Walcott 7.5 – Another impressive game from the reborn forward. Great goal shows soaring confidence.
Chamberlain 7.5 – Very impressive from the Ox who should now start more games.
Alexis 8 – Super goal, drive, desire and talent.
Elneny and Iwobi 6 – Decent showings from the bench.
Lucas Perez 7 – Two quickfire assists and good impact gave his confidence and playing chances a real boost.
