RAM) Mesut Özil – 6
Mesut Özil came up with a crucial goal at the right time but he was fairly anonymous aside from that. The German couldn’t find much possession in this new position and he is still suffering from a clear lack of confidence.
Sub: Hector Bellerin (90′) – N/A
LAM) Alexis Sanchez – 6
The Chilean got the all important first goal but didn’t really contribute much else. Alexis Sanchez’s free-kick was fantastic but he gave possession away on far too many occassions which hurt the Gunners.

Sub: Francis Coquelin (90′) – N/A
ST) Olivier Giroud – 5
A very quiet match from Olivier Giroud up front. The Frenchman got his first Premier League start since the beginning of March but didn’t exactly threaten the home team.
