DM) Francis Coquelin – 5.5
Not his usual energetic self, lacking a bit of impetus and desire. He clearly isn’t fully fit yet, something we need to remedy quickly.
Substitute: Mohamed Elneny – 6.0
The Egpytian didn’t exactly do anything wrong, but his passing was extremely negative. At a time we really needed to be pushing further up the field, he was merely passing back and forth between the centre-backs.
CM) Aaron Ramsey – 5.5

- Arsenal boss Arteta takes ‘hands on approach’ with £27m-star’s new club
Some great movement from the Welshman, but let down time and time again by a poor touch or a sloppy pass. He didn’t seem to be concentrating half the time, and we certainly paid for it.
CAM) Mesut Özil – 7.5
Despite getting a goal and an assist, Özil really wasn’t anywhere near his best. His passing and movement weren’t on point, and he unquestionably looked tired and frustrated at times. His high rating only really comes from the goal and the assist, as he really wasn’t with it.
