Rob Holding: A better match than Koln’s match. He wasn’t nervous. 7/10
Per Metsaker: 7/10
Ainsley Maitland-Niles: Great performance and defended well. Had couple deadly mistakes, by saved them by his self. He needs time. 7/10
Reiss Nelson: He will be one of the best young stars soon. Several shoots on target 8/10
Mohammed Elneny: Still not able to help offensively. 6/10
Jack Wilshere: Great comeback from injury. We saw some of Cazorla’s touches in the game. More fitness and sharpness is needed to be back. 8/10
Alexis Sanchez: What a pass and assist to Walcott! Great match but wasn’t as dangerous as usual or against Chelsea. Created several chances but no one converted except once. 8/10
Oliver Giroud: Missed plenty of chances by trying to score a new scorpion kick or bicycle kick. Giroud is a super sub mostly. 5/10
Theo Walcott: Not the normal Walcott at all. Missed plenty of chances as well but scored one. He was subbed off. 5/10
Alex Iwobi: N/A
Man of the match: Non of Arsenal players really impressed. Sanchez may be the best. He was left,right,behind the striker, a striker, play maker and everywhere. Not his best but the best of Arsenal players.
Arsene Wenger (manager): Not the desired result against a League One team. But maybe saving the players for the more important matches. A win is what was wanted. 6/10
