Didn't have much to do really, but 3 good saves in a minute in the second half kept the clean sheet intact.

Linked up nicely with Lucas down the right, got into some dangerous positions. Crossing might have been a bit better though.

Quietly impressive. 13/13 clearances, 10/10 headed clearances, disciplined and bright.

To Kos: The action of rendering a £30m striker invisible.

Very good again, now firmly establishing himself in the midfield, his range of passing is superb.

Tidy and efficient throughout, had a couple of decent pops on goal.

Although he plays primarily on the wings, it seems more and more clear that his long-term future will probably be in the middle. Really good today.

A good run-out for the Spaniard, might been a little more productive from some of the areas he got into, but it's good to have that depth in the squad.

Did everything but score today. Relentless in his efforts, he had 8 attempts on goal and create 5 chances.

A big Handsome French Bastard of a goal. He might have missed that earlier chance, but a goal of that quality deserves huge credit. His second goal in successive games too, gives us great attacking depth.

A decent cameo from the Welshman, had a sight of goal too. Being eased back into action, pushing for a start against Bournemouth perhaps.

Added some real positive thrust down the right when he came on. Much like a load of Guinness followed by a dodgy kebab on the way home, provided some powerful runs.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 for Giroud's goal. Go watch it again.
