The Arsenal and Germany play maker Mesut Ozil continued his fine run of form and capped another very good game with a well taken goal and could have scored more, but he was edged out for my Man of the Match award by the human perpetual motion machine that is Alexis Sanchez who also scored two great goals and assisted Ozil’s.
Cech 6 – Not much to do for the Arsenal number one.
Bellerin 7.5 – Put his slightly rusty comeback to one side and looked very sharp.
Mertesacker 6 – No problems whatsoever for the BFG.
Koscielny 7 – Not tested defensively and helped to start attacks.
Monreal 7.5 – Solid in defence, good going forward and a key part in the second goal.
Flamini 7.5 – Good rare start and we need him to keep it up in Coquelin’s absence.
Cazorla 7 – Should have scored but a typically classy and controlled game.
Campbell 7 – Brilliant pass to assist Alexis and a decent all round game.
Ozil 8 – Slick as you like and took goal well. He is on fire.
Alexis 8.5 – Imagine if he wasn’t jaded?
Giroud 6.5 – Not his sharpest but tried hard and helped the team.
subs Ramsey 6 – Solid from the Welshman and valuable match time as he returns from injury.
Chambers 6 – Did nothing wrong in his brief cameo.
Debuchy 6 – Same as above.
