Two games against Bournemouth this season, two 2-0 wins, two goals from Mesut Ozil. Nice to get back to winning ways, and it sets things up very well for next week’s visit of Leicester.

Here’s how the players rated.

Fantastic again, the late double save was top class and once again he's repaid a big slice of his transfer fee.

Not his best game, but that chase back and tackle in our box to deny a Bournemouth man was superb. Not the first time he's done that this season either.

Most of what he does is good, but has a worrying tendency to drop a clanger in every game. Maybe that'll be ironed out with more playing time, but it's got to be on the manager's mind.

Not his usual self today, especially going forward, but solid enough at the back.

What he did was generally fine, but that challenge was ridiculous and he was lucky not to be sent off. There was absolutely no need to go in two-footed anyway and a player of his experience should have known better. Escaped a second yellow with a mad slide in the first half too. To his credit he lasted the 90 but was always on a knife edge

His best game for a while. Involved in both goals, with an assist for Oxlade-Chamberlain, and did his defensive duty too winning 5/7 tackles, making 4 interceptions and 12 ball recoveries. Put in a real shift.

Really fine goal, and with his right foot too. Played particularly well in the first half.

Hopefully this will help him find some confidence and form again, lovely finish, just what he needed.

Still finding his rhythm but the minutes will do him good.

Got no service in front of goal but got an assist for Ozil's opener.

Another one for whom some time on the pitch will help in terms of match fitness, because obviously Arsene Wenger doesn't want to use him from the start just yet.

Only got 30 seconds.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 Benik Afobe whacking in a stinker against his old club when we'd been told he was the best striker EVER over the last few days
