DM) Granit Xhaka – 7.5
It was a good performance from Granit Xhaka in the centre of midfield. He was solid in defence and showed some exquisite passing at times. Arsene Wenger mentioned in the week that the Gunners had been missing Santi Cazorla’s distribution from deep in recent weeks but when the Swiss international plays this well, Arsenal tick.
CM) Mohamed Elneny – 7.5
A typical Mohamed Elneny performance. His work-rate was undying and the Egyptian both defended and attacked well. He was solid on the ball and can be pleased with his performance.
CAM) Mesut Özil – 7
- Agent of exiled Mesut Ozil warns Arsenal that the truth will be revealed
- Arsenal overtaken by new frontrunners to sign Houssem Aouar in January
- Ex-Arsenal star favouring a move to America’s MLS to restart career
The German started slowly but grew into the match. Mesut Özil showed some exquisite skill during the buildup to the second Arsenal goal and began dictating the play in the second half.
