The lead at the top of the table is extended with a 3-0 win over Cardiff. How did the players rate in our eyes?
Wojciech Szczesny: 9/10 – That save was top class, kept us ahead and it’s not the first time he’s done it this season.
Bacary Sagna: 8/10 – Solid once again, made some great interceptions, read the game well.
Per Mertesacker: 8/10 – Puuurrrrrrrrr, Mertesacker.
Laurent Koscielny: 8/10 – Great again, stuck to Odemwingie like chewing gum to hair when he came on.
Kieran Gibbs: 7/10 – Another good one, booked early though which meant he had to stand off a bit at times.
Mikel Arteta: 8/10 – Tackles, interceptions, elbowed in the ribs, he was everywhere (check the stats). Mr Consistent in a very consistent team.
Jack Wilshere: 7/10 – Quieter today than in previous games but almost got another ridiculously early goal with a shot that cannoned back off the bar.
Aaron Ramsey: 9/10 – Two more goals, worked his arse off, and won the applause of the home fans who were quite happy to abuse every other Arsenal player. That header, oof, so difficult. You try it.
Santi Cazorla: 6/10 – Tried hard, but things just aren’t coming off for him right now.
Mesut Ozil: 8/10 – Was also a bit quiet but gets extra points for two wonderful assists. The cross to Ramsey and the slipped ball for Flamini to smash home.
Olivier Giroud: 6/10 – Not his day, had that bizarre moment in the first half when he stopped. He obviously knew he was offside and was expecting the flag but play the whistle big man!
Theo Walcott: 7/10 – Not on long but got an assist for Ramsey and Ramsey almost returned the favour in injury time.
Nacho Monreal: 7/10 – Another good cameo from the versatile Spaniard.
Mathieu Flamini: 7/10 – Walloped home his goal with great verve. Rolled his sleeves up and smashed it in.
