The mighty Arsenal kept their third clean sheet in a row against the supposedly unbeatable Bayern Munich last night, and there is no doubt that the victory was built on the defence. Arsenal only had a measly 27% possession and Petr Cech had to work a lot harder than usual. But he did his job with relish to provide the platform for us to take the points in the second half.
Petr Cech 8.5 MOTM
Brilliant performance with some World Class saves from World Class strikers!
Was made to work hard indefence by Douglas Costa, but was very influential when he got forward.
The partnership with Koscielny (and Cech) seems to be perfectly complementary. Solid defending.
Does this man ever have a bad game? Always involved in defence and attack. Class.
The Bayern attack made his life difficult, but he stood firm most of the time.
The battery that makes Arsenal’s clock tick to a fast rhythm! Gets better as he ages…
Struggled in this game, maybe he was feeling his hamstring injury long before he finally went off.
Didn’t get much possession from but made it count when he did. His goal sealed the points.
Never stopped running an getting involved but defintelylooked like he needed a rest towards the end.
Didn’t get many chances and was denied the opener by a brilliant Neuer save.
Made an immediate impact. A scrappy goal but who cares!
