Our player ratings system is offline this evening, so you’ll have to make do with old fashioned ratings in a post, and you’ll have to leave your own in the form of a comment.
Here’s what we reckon.
Petr Cech, 7 – Didn’t have a lot to do but made a good save in the first half to keep the mighty Lincoln at bay.
Hector Bellerin, 8 – Great going forward in both halves, and in the first he tried to make things happen.
Shkodran Mustafi, 7 – Got an elbow in the mouth early on, but that was about as much as the fat bloke up front troubled him.
Laurent Koscielny, 7 – Got the fat lad back with a nice elbow, solid all game.
Kieran Gibbs, 7 – He was good in the final third, forced the own goal, never had a lot to do defensively.
Granit Xhaka, 7 – Got booked, as usual, but his range of passing was very nice.
Aaron Ramsey, 6 – Fair to say he didn’t have his shooting boots on today, should have scored more than the one he did.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 6 – Was doing fine until a hamstring injury forced him off before the half-hour mark.
Theo Walcott, 8 – Probably our most threatening player today, opened the scoring but always looked the most likely to get us a goal.
Alexis Sanchez, 7.5 – Lovely goal, far better in the second half than the first.
Olivier Giroud, 7 – Got a goal, grand in general.
6.5 7– Came on, did well, then shouldered that lad out of the way and made Chris Sutton squawk with anger in doing so. So actually he gets another half a point.
Francis Coquelin, 6 – On to avoid a second yellow for Xhaka
Lucas Perez, 6 – Was involved but unable to make an impact on the scoresheet or with an assist.
