Had little to do but again was solid and decisive when called into action.

Put in some great crosses from the right hand side, but got a needless booking late on but he's allowed them from time to time.

He is so awesome that even if my surname was Nicious, I would name my son 'Per'.

Likes a goal against Newcastle, dealt with everything they had going forward, including one cool as anything swerve on halfway.

Like Sagna got forward well, unlucky not to score near the end too. Solid run-out.

Lovely ball over the top to bring about the second goal, always available to whoever had the ball.

Not his finest game, but showed what a difference he can make at times. His desire to go forward all the time is just what we need against a team that wants to sit off.

A goal, an assist and some dazzling footwork. There's so much more to come from him too.

Busy and effective again, could probably have scored and got an assist for the first.

Quiet tonight, as is his wont from time to time, but got a good 90 under his belt.

Should have squared it for Ozil to tap home but got a bit lucky to see it rebound to the right place. Thumping header from the German's cross for his 21st goal of the season.

Livewire cameo, almost set up Sanogo for his first goal but for an offside flag. Should have been awarded a penalty too.

Really only got 5 minutes, not long enough to rate.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 - moving Pardew closer to the sack, the big spannerheaded gimpfister.
