Arsenal come from behind to collect the three points and move up to first in the Premier League. Xhaka conceded a penalty for an elbow but it looked harsh on the replays. Walcott levelled the match before goals from Ӧzil and Iwobi secured the points. The only real concern is the injury to Mustafi.
Cech – 7 – Pulled off an excellent save to keep Arsenal in front.
Gabriel – 7 – Another solid performance by Gabriel at right back and centre back today. Looked assured and growing with each game.
Mustafi – 6 – Started the game really well especially with his passing into midfield however, seemed to pull his hamstring.
Koscielny – 7 – Solid in defence again and is going to be key in the title run in.
Monreal – 7 – Played really well and made a great block tackle in the first half.
Coquelin – 8 –Was excellent in midfield, working hard and winning the ball back on most occasions.
Xhaka – 7 – Played well apart from the penalty he conceded. Moved the ball quickly and spread the play.
Walcott – 7 – Scored the important equaliser and his 100th goal for the club.
Ӧzil – 7 –Scored the second goal with a great header after a terrific run.
Oxlade – Chamberlain – 7 – Played really well and looked like he would create something when on the ball. Got the assist for the Ӧzil header.
Sanchez – 7 - Worked hard all afternoon and looked a constant threat.
Bellerin – 7 – Got the assist for the first goal and looked like he had never been away.
Iwobi – 7 – Scored his first league goal of the season and provided a different threat with his movement.
Giroud – N/A – Didn’t have much time to influence the game.
Overall, another good win after some poor refereeing once again. It is crucial Arsenal get their two stars contracts sorted as soon as possible. Arsenal now play Everton and Manchester City in their next two games.
