Lukas Fabianski – 7/10
Didn’t make any mistakes in the absence of first choice goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny
Bacary Sagna – 8/10
Frequently found upfield supporting Gnabry and Walcott, and Arsenal were relatively untroubled at the back.
Nacho Monreal – 7/10
Struggled with the pace of Kyle Walker on occasion, but otherwise a very solid performance.
Laurent Koscielny – 8/10
One of the best man marking centre backs in the world. Gets tight to his opponents and allows them very little space.
Thomas Vermaelen – 5/10
Thomas Vermaelen illustrated exactly why he’d been dropped in March with some naive defending, stepping out of position all too often and being booked for a rash and unnecessary challenge.
