So, Arsenal beat Brighton 2-0 (goals at this link) at the Emirates on Sunday on what was a relatively comfortable afternoon.

There were some dangerous moments from the visitors though, and by Arsene Wenger’s own admission the team lacked offensive efficiency. Here’s how the players rated today.

Once more didn't have a huge amount to do, but once more showed a real desire to dominate his area with good punches

Ok first half, came alive in the second and his assist for Iwobi was superb

His shooting can often be a bit tame, so it was nice to see such an emphatic finish

Hit the post early on, combined well with those around him, but couldn't add to his scoring run.

Not really on long enough to rate

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 for Xhaka wiping away the referee's spray paint.
