DM) Francis Coquelin – 6
Won the ball back really well for the first Arsenal goal and looked solid and combative throughout.
CM) Mohamed Elneny – 5
Comfortable on the ball, formed a solid partnership with Coquelin until the collapse. Subbed off for Granit Xhaka in the 67th minute.

Substitute: Granit Xhaka – 5
What better way to introduce Granit Xhaka to Arsenal Football Club than that first match? The midfielder looked pretty decent when he came on but it’s difficult to judge a sub’s performance in this match.
CAM) Aaron Ramsey – 6.5
Started the match well, linking up with Sanchez and Iwobi but came off just after the hour with a suspected injury.
Substitute: Santi Cazorla – 5
Came on for the injured Ramsey and played fairly well. Put the free kick in for Chambers’ goal.
