CM) Mohamed Elneny – 6.5
It was a solid midfield performance from Mohamed Elneny. The Egyptian provided more of an attacking threat than Francis Coquelin would’ve and was probably the right call from the start.
Sub: Francis Coquelin (72′) – N/A
Solid during his cameo.
CM) Granit Xhaka – 7
- ‘Break club record spend or look elsewhere’ Arsenal told
- Arsenal eye player Lionel Messi claimed to be ‘similar to Xavi’
- Arsenal urged to buy ‘January transfer window bargain’ for £6m
A commanding midfield performance from Granit Xhaka. He controlled the match for the most part but perhaps misplaced a few more passes than usual.
CAM) Alexis Sanchez – 7
The Chilean played a little deeper than usual this afternoon but was just as impressive. Alexis Sanchez was typically hardworking and full of energy and played in more of a playmaker role.
