It feels like I may as well just give Alexis Sanchez the Arsenal Man of the Match award for all of the Arsenal games to come over the rest of the season, because even when he does not score or produce the match winning moment, the Chilean striker is almost always the best player on the pitch, as was the case again yesterday against West Brom.
Cech 6 – Not much to do but was lucky not to be punished by Yacob for losing a cross.
Bellerin 7 – Tried hard but usual attacking flair was stifled by the Baggies.
Gabriel 7 – Bit shaky to start but overall a solid game.
Koscielny 8.5 – 100 percent tackle success rate in another great game from the Boss.
Gibbs 7.5 – Looked good until injury. Fingers crossed it’s just minor.
Coquelin 7 – Strong and secure until sacrificed for more attacking threat.
Xhaka 7 – Passed with precision and controlled game well from centre.
Ozil 8 – Can look anonymous but had some great touches and set up seven shots and assist for goal was pure class.
Iwobi 7 – Some super skills but not enough final impact.
Giroud 7 Worked hard and took his big chance with aplomb.
Alexis 9 – Pocket dynamo was on a mission again. Nine attempts and unlucky not to score at least one of them.
Ramsey 7 – Good impact, looked sharp for a player just back.
Lucas Perez 7 – Unlucky not get assist for perfect ball across six yard box.
Monreal 6 Decent game after replacing Gibbs.
