Could have made a costly error with an awkward approach to saving a high ball but got down low quickly on Di Maria’s effort to ensure parity going into the game. Good performance from Szczesny, but not enough to oust Ospina from the League’s starting xi.
Really lucky not to have been sent off in the second half after showing immaturity to get booked within the first 4 minutes. Good game from the young Spaniard regardless.
The captain showed more maturity in the game compared to the debacle at the Emirates against Monaco. He will be looking to keep this up knowing Gabriel could return from injury to take his place again should there be any more drop in his performance.
Not very good marking for Rooney’s equalizer, but did not put a foot wrong afterwards.
If he was your “Man of the Match”, I would have no reason to argue. And the well taken goal? We’d be raving about it as if it was from a certain Barcelona Number 10.
Coquelin: 8 (MOTM)
Seriously, this was everybody’s “Man of the Match”, as he proved to be the right antidote for United’s biggest threat on the pitch in Fellaini. Hope the medical staff can see to it that he stops bleeding from his nose. Great game from the Frenchman.
Cazorla has continued to surprise us, reminding us of how important he has been in every Arsenal game so far this season. Could have scored a great goal but for a ridiculously good goalkeeper.
Another player to have been denied by De Gea, a threat all evening.
He really wanted this victory as much as anyone and crafted the first piece in the build-up to Monreal’s goal. Great game from the German.
The first goal was all down to one man’s piece of trickery and it was definitely disappointing to see him pull his hamstring. Immense player.
Can’t give greater credit than saying HE CELEBRATED SCORING THE WINNER AGAINST HIS BOYHOOD CLUB AT THEIR OWN GROUND!! And if he makes better runs, he will have more of such days.
Added stuff to the midfield and handled possession very well.
