CDM) Francis Coquelin – 6
Coquelin showed a lack of maturity today and could’ve cost us the game with his rash tackle while on a yellow. Wenger rightly replaced him shortly after.
CM) Santi Cazorla – 9
A near-perfect performance from our midfield magician. We have been calling for him to return centrally, and Wenger duly obliged – which saw Cazorla produce a complete performance.
CAM) Mesut Ozil – 9

Just in front of Cazorla, Ozil has certainly arrived in terms of the new season, with some silky, but deadly, footwork. He provided a smart pass for our opening goal and could’ve had more assists were it not for the wayward finishing of some other players.
