A last minute winner takes all three points away from home and moves Arsenal up to third. This will go down as three points nicked after a lacklustre display. After all of the superlatives over the last week this seemed to be typical Arsenal. The ball came in which was flicked on by Walcott which Koscielny swung a leg towards before diverting the ball accidentally with him arm into the goal.
Cech – 7 – Made a great save in the second half to keep the game level.
Bellerin – 6 – Not at his best going forward but there were no offerings in the middle.
Mustafi – 7 – Mustafi had a very good game and showed he is very capable against a very physical presence in Vokes.
Koscielny – 7 – Will be credited with the winner and defended well throughout the game.
Monreal – 7 – Wasn’t great going forward but defended well and stopped the cross which was important.
Xhaka – 6 – Kept the ball ticking over in the midfield.
Cazorla – 6 – Kept probing in midfield but was fairly ineffective.
Walcott – 6 – Wasn’t at his best and lacked the intensity of his previous games.
Ӧzil – 5 – Ӧzil had an awful game and its best he just moved on from it.
Iwobi – 7 – Iwobi was Arsenals best attacking player trying to create something all of the time.
Sanchez – 7 – Tried to create opportunities but it just wasn’t working.
Oxlade – Chamberlain – 6 – Didn’t really do much once he came on.
Elneny – 6 – Kept the ball moving in midfield and looked full of energy.
Overall, Arsenal were not at their best but the three points are all what matter. That win moves Arsenal to within two points of Manchester City.
