Arsenal 2-0 Stoke – player ratings

97

Let’s be honest, it could, and should, have been about 5 or 6-0 but for wasteful finishing and some fantastic saves from goalkeeper Jack Butland (get him on watchlist Arsene).

Still, three points always welcome, a third clean sheet in a row, and it feels nice to have a Saturday night ahead without dismay of some kind. Rather the opposite of Jose Mourinho’s, wouldn’t you say?

Didn't have much to do, but what he did he did well and with assurance. Kept things calm when they needed to be.

Stick that up your hole, Arnautovic. Gabriel isn't taking any shit from you.

Bossed it. Next week I want to see him stride forward through midfield and spank that kind of shot into the top corner.

The best left-back in the league? Consistently good at the back and going forward. Another top performance.

Cracking tackle to help set up the first, Stoke didn't like a Coq up them

Created 7 chances in the game, got an assist, and unlucky not to score.

A functional hard-working performance, helped Bellerin get forward outside him often, but not the threat in the box he usually is.

Hit the post twice in an effervescent opening spell, worked his socks off throughout. The goals will come.

Fantastic assist for Walcott's goal, like Cazorla created 7 chances, and was prepared to have a go himself.

He took the goal brilliantly, touch and finish were great, but the chances he missed today were missed very badly indeed, and with a one goal lead that can prove costly. Other players would have been slaughtered for spurning those chances.

Missed a sitter, scored a more difficult chance. That's our Oli! His rather muted celebration said a lot.

Bonus rating: 10/10 constant shots of Mark Hughes looking unhappy on the sideline. This pleases us greatly.
