Should have saved the first, not great for the second either.

I watched and watched and watched and midway through the second half he did: a slide to nowhere!

I like the bit where he cleared the ball out for a goal kick by booting it off an opponent's face.

Got his first ever Arsenal goal and didn't he enjoy it?!

It's not his natural position but he looked a lot more assured this time.

Not his best game, a bit too careless at times, needed to be stronger

I was really impressed with him, he's barely 18 but showed some real composure, got stuck in well, and used the ball cleverly

A solid if somewhat unremarkable showing

Very good in the first half in particular, his quality stood out, faded a bit in the second period but the minutes will have done him good.

Scored twice, but his decision making was really frustrating at times – not just to us but to teammates who are right to expect better.

Olivier Giroud the Centurion – you knew he was going to score the penalty.

Youngster Marcus McGuane made his debut but we don't have him in the system yet

A late run out for Eddie Nketiah, making his debut as well

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 that bit when Reiss Nelson did a shimmy one way, wiggled his hips the other way, and the Borisov player was so spangleflumped he just fell over.
