Shkodran Mustafi – 8 – Looked solid and assured at the back. 

Rob Holding – 9 – Headed away countless crosses in an immense display at the back for the Gunners. 

Kieran Tierney – 7.5 – Asked to play in the back three and looked solid throughout before coming off with cramp. 

Hector Bellerin – 6.5 – A solid enough display from the defender.
