Did well for the most part but might kick himself over punching that late free kick he probably could have caught. It cost him his clean sheet.

He played right back, left back, then centre-half and was awesome in each of those positions. He's just so reliable and consistent. Sign him up!

He's like a defending Daddy Long Legs, expect not as easily squished.

Another great shift at the back, capped by a good goal from a Cazorla corner. Went off with a back problem but the boss is hopeful he'll be back for next week.

Worryingly replaced at half-time because of an ankle problem but otherwise untroubled by Sunderland.

Metronomic again making 108/116 passes, 4 interceptions, 3 tackles, 2 clearances. Kept things ticking.

Relentlessly positive but tired a little towards the end, understandable after the midweek exertions.

Scored one of the goals of the season today, stepped up when needed in the absence of more illustrious names.

The kind of game you'd expect him to score in but he worked hard and did the full 90

Gets an assist for Koscielny's goal, buzzed around with those quick feet of his. Some of the cross-field passing with his 'wrong' foot was sensational.

Two goals and an assist capped an excellent return to the team for the Frenchman. He owed the manager a performance and gave him one. Kudos.

Showed some JenkinSKILLZ down the right at one but really didn't have much to do.

Came on and played at left-back, 100% pass success rate. Shouted at 4 clouds.

Some more good minutes under his belt, fluffed a good chance after being set up by Wilshere but great running to be there in the first place.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: Mesut Ozil - 0/10: nowhere to be seen today.
