Arsenal ran out comfortable 2-0 winners against Brighton at the Emirates today. Let’s see how the players rated …
Easy afternoon for the experienced stopper, dealt with whatever little action came his way with relative ease.
After some recent horror performances, this steady showing will do his confidence the world of good.
Passed the ball out well from the back. Untroubled defensively.
Took his goal well to open the scoring and put in a solid shift at the back.
Bombed forward at every opportunity and it’s noticeable how much his crossing has improved of late.
Looks a real threat going forward, but turned off defensively to allow March in behind him a couple of times in first-half.
Covered a lot of ground in the centre, but clearly left his shooting boots at home, as he should have done better with a couple of half chances.
Kept things ticking over nicely for his side.
Decent performance capped by a superb finish for Arsenal’s second goal.
Sanchez 9 ( MOTM )
Looks back to his best. Full of energy and invention. Beautiful back-heel assist for Iwobi goal and unlucky not to get on the score sheet himself.
Smashed the post with a brilliant effort from the edge of the box in the first couple of minutes, but will be disappointed he didn’t do better with a couple of other chances either side of half-time.
Failed to make his usual impact off the bench.
Given 20 minutes to impress, didn’t.
Not at fault for either goal and made some crucial stops.
Tough day for the 36-year-old Brighton stalwart up against Alexis. Stuck to his task well however.
Looks more comfortable defending crosses into the box than with the ball at his feet. Always puts in a shift however, and can only improve playing against top-class players every week.
Can look a little awkward at times, but gave his all. A couple of brilliant defensive blocks and some excellent accuracy with long balls forward.
A mixed bag. Showed great pace and strength at times, but at others looked hesitant on the ball.
Looked dangerous with the ball at his feet, and cracked a brilliant free-kick off the post in first-half. Looks a player.
Solid shift. Continues to impress in defensive midfield role.
The step up from Dutch football to the Premier League is obviously a big one and he looked out of his depth at times.
Looks like he needs time to adjust to the English game, decision making was poor on a couple of occasions.
Has put in plenty of fine performances already this season, this wasn’t one of them.
Was asked to play as a central-striker due to injury to Hemed. His movement was decent, but struggled due to a lack of quality service.
Went close with a near post header.
Still waiting to see the type of form that saw him voted Championship player of the season last season.
