Mesut Ozil also looked back to his best for Arsene Wenger’s side…
Arsenal beat Middlesbrough 2-0 in the FA Cup fifth round on Sunday. They were dominant throughout, and perhaps should have scored more.
Here is how their players rated in the match…
GK) Wojciech Szczesny, 7
Wasn’t forced in to many saves, but also didn’t lose concentration during the Gunners’ dominance.
RB) Calum Chambers, 6
Needs to improve his game going forwards for matches like this, where there is little defending to be done.
LB) Kieran Gibbs, 8
Got himself an assist, and thrives when asked to attack weaker sides.
CB) Gabriel Paulista, 7
Solid debut, supporters are yet to see him truly tested though.
CB) Laurent Koscielny, 6
The Frenchman had nothing to do for large periods, but he at least did what he had to do.
