DM) Francis Coquelin – 8
Francis was very solid in the tackle and performed exceptionally well. His tenacity is what makes him such a crucial player for Arsenal.
CM) Santi Cazorla – 7
A decent performance from Santi Cazorla in the centre of midfield, bossing play and provided a stunning lobbed through-ball for Ozil’s goal.
Substitute: Mohamed Elneny (56′) – 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
Elneny came on and did what was required.
CAM) Mesut Özil – 10 (MotM)
A well over-due assist from Mesut Özil to tee up Theo Walcott for the opener. Was lively in the first half and scored a fantastic goal after a delightful long ball over the top from Santi. Created plenty of opportunities and bagged two quick-fire goals to earn himself his first professional hat-trick after two nice crosses from Perez handed it to him on a plate, but don’t take anything away from the composure of this man.
