[Player Ratings] Arsenal 3-1 Stoke - Gunners Go Top Of League Table

Arsenal came from behind to secure a 3-1 win over Stoke City at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday as Theo Walcott, Mesut Ozil and Alex Iwobi on penned their names on the scoresheet.

That victory means the Gunners are now top of the Premier League table till at least when Chelsea plays tomorrow.

Various Arsenal players made varying contributions in today's game and I will like to rate them according to their performance.

Cech 7.5: He had a nice game overall even though he couldn't prevent Arsenal from going behind early in the second half. He was right on track to deny Crouch's header from going in.

Gabriel 7: He played well both at right and centre back and easily adapted to the new game-plan when Mustafi got injured.

Mustafi N/A: The German defender left the pitch as a result of a hamstring problem after just 24 minutes of action.

Koscielny 7: He was as impressive as ever. The boss was as solid as the rock of Gibraltar, tough as Bagco Super Sack.

Monreal 6.5: Struggled a bit in the first half but stepped up his game after the break. He didn't have a bad day after all.

Coquelin 6.5: Played a part but I feel Ramsey would have done better.

Xhaka 7: The Swiss gave out a cheap penalty but went on to take control of affairs in midfield. Overall, he was superb.

Walcott 7: He gave Arsenal the equaliser and helped put some pressure on our opponents as the game progressed.

Ozil 7.5: Didn't really see much of him in the first half but he did well to poke home a thunderous header after the break.

Oxlade Chamberlain 7.5: Assisted our secong goal and also got close to getting one for himself. His performance today wasn't different from the classic ones we have seen from him so far this season.

Sanchez 7.5: Worked tirelessly as usual. He was involved in the build-up to the first goal and also assisted Alex Iwobi's goal which helped seal victory for Arsenal.

Bellerin 8: He was no doubt the Man of the Match, Came on to turn the game around. His pace and skills helped Arsenal get a first half equaliser.

Iwobi 7: Lovely goal from the lad. Came in as a sub but made a mark.

Giroud 6: He was involved for less than 15 minutes.
