Not the most scintillating performance of the season, but still a very valuable and welcome three points as Newcastle went down to that Laurent Koscielny goal.

Here’s how the players rated.

Started the game very brightly, could do with working a bit on his crossing though.

Passed it well, made lots of clearances, positioning good.

He likes a goal against Newcastle, doesn't he?

Won 6/9 tackles, and put a shift in, but the partnership with Ramsey isn't as secure as we'd like.

Made more passes than any other Arsenal player, did brilliantly to make a great chance for himself late on, but you have to score when there are two players waiting for a tap-in. Campbell's frustration was obvious and understandable.

One of his more quiet days, but still created 4 goal-scoring chances

He's definitely struggling for form, but I didn't think he was anywhere near as bad as some people are saying. Lucky to escape without a yellow card.

Held it up well at times, good movement but perhaps feeling the physical effects a bit

Helped shore things up - which is his key role this season, it seems.

Not really on long enough to rate

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 for that thing when a team spends the entire game time-wasting then all of a sudden they're in a hurry.
