It was not what you would call a vintage Arsenal performance all round but those goals were of the very caliber which make headers look like flukes. West Ham had their moments as Alex Song looked to impress for an advent. After all, he would think, I can be just as good as Flamini.
Good low save to deny Nolan early on. Every fall of his looks an injury waiting, hopefully not.
Great forward adventure with two great chips in the first half. There were issues with his positioning but overall, did great.
A very different Monreal from the one who seemed out of his depth last season, hopefully he keeps his place for the next game.
Good game from the captain but why does he let himself get sucked into challenges when he does not have the speed to recover?
The answer would be that he’s got Koscielny and yes the boss was alert today.
Boss? That’s a title that should belong to Coquelin now. When his technique becomes better, we know Arsenal have got a complete defensive midfield player.
All action display from Rambo and a well taken goal to seal a brilliant game. His energy could be crucial to turning the tie at Monaco.
He really loves to assist but it could be the wrong choice sometimes. Should shoot more often at goal, he will score plenty.
Needs to really wake up or he will have no right to allege being left behind unfairly.
Not the best we’ve seen from the Chilean.
Giroud: 9 (MOTM)
Everything he did today was simply class.
Combined to seal the game.
