Sadly didn't get his 200th clean sheet but made good saves, the one from Benteke in particular was excellent

Looked like the rest did him some good, got a goal and defender well throughout

A very good early clearance set the tone for an aggressive defensive performance

Played just over 30 minutes but scored one and made two assists. His removal was 'precautionary' apparently, so let's hope he's not missing for long

Better from the Swiss international today, worked hard if a bit sluggishly

Solid but looks like a player who is on the cusp of needing a rest, just to recharge the batteries a bit

His passing may be safe but it keeps things moving. 97 passes, 96% accuracy, shows he's a good squad option.

Superb vision to create the goal for Lacazette, and some of his first half play was outstanding. Taken off with 20 mins to go, which was sensible.

He's been criticised a lot this season. Sometimes with good reason, but sometimes it feels like he's been made a bit of a scapegoat. Very good today though, attacked well, scored and really put in a defensive shift.

Back in the goals, at last, and that will take some pressure off him. Should have had a penalty late on too, but the referee chose not to award it for some reason. Played 90 minutes!

Came on, did well. Can we read something into the fact he got the nod ahead of the natural replacement Kolasinac?

A Premier League debut for the young man. Didn't do a lot but that was true of Arsenal's second half.

Only got 8 minutes. Not on long enough to rate.

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 - winning a game again. It makes all our lives much better and frankly they should do it more often. It's so inconsiderate when they play like feckless twats.
