Koscielny 7: Had a nice time in defense as usual. Still the boss!

Monreal 7: The Spaniard had one of his best displays so far this season.

Xhaka 7: Made a series of accurate passes while also ensuring Arsenal go forward so often.

Perez 7: His interception started the buildup to the first goal. He was on point both offensively and defensively.

Iwobi 7: He put his name on the league's scoresheet for the second time this season and also did well in the number 10 position.

Giroud 8: Bagged a superb goal that will remain the talk on everyone's lips for so long.

Ramsey, Coqyekin, Oxlade-Chamberlain 6: They all came in as substitutes and didn't do much.
