Having watched Petr Cech dominate the area most of the season, a stay-on-your-line keeper like Ospina is a big change. Cech might have taken that cross.

What a superb finish that was. Perhaps a little rusty defensively at times, but he hasn't played much this season so that's understandable.

Outjumped a little too easily throughout the game for me.

Has picked up a worrying tendency in recent games to make one big clanger - thankfully today's wasn't punished, and he grew into the game.

Attacked well in the first half. What a foul on Coquelin too!

Great to see him back, and those 70 minutes will do him good.

A decent debut, some shots on goal, and tidy on the ball. Will have had his eyes opened to the physicality of English football too.

This kid looks a real prospect, it shows how much Wenger rates him when he plays him in the middle. Some great touches and vision today.

Could, and maybe should, have scored today, but this was a better performance than in recent weeks. Got the assist for the winner too!

He makes a difference, got the winning goal, and some minutes under his belt ahead of Tuesday.

He did a lot of backheels and took a lot of kicks

Not on long enough to rate, but he could really have done with scoring that great chance late on.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: Go fuck yourself/10 for Joey Barton, who shoved Alexis over the advertising hoardings, elbowed Arteta, and was generally a wanker every moment he was on the pitch,
