Find out which Arsenal players impressed as Mikel Arteta's side went back to the top of the Premier League table on Sunday 


Aaron Ramsdale - 7/10 - Another clean sheet for the England keeper whose highlight had to be pushing a shy Ethan Nwaneri towards the celebrating Arsenal supporters at the end of the match after the shy 15-year-old was reluctant to do so

Ben White - 8/10 - Another excellent performance. Gareth Southgate take not. Or not, because fewer games means less chance of injury and more rest time

William Saliba - 8/10 - Always seems to have so much time on and off the ball. A class act who grabbed another goal

Gabriel - 7.5/10 - Solid 

Kieran Tierney - 7/10 - Good energy levels after the Scot slotted in for the injured Zinchenko

Thomas Partey - 6/10

Granit Xhaka (c) - 8/10 - Another excellent performance. No wonder Thomas Frank hailed him afterwards in his press conference 

Bukayo Saka - 7.5/10 - Assist and another tireless effort from the 21-year-old. How good will he be in five years?

Fabio Vieira - 8/10 - A excellent strike from such a creative presence on his first start for the Gunners. Great to see him celebrate with the travelling fans

Gabriel Martinelli - 7/10 - Never stops running and never let thge Brentford backline settle. Such a great team player.  

Gabriel Jesus - 8/10 - Another goal for the star striker 

Albert Sambi Lokonga (78' for Partey) - 6/10

Eddie Nketiah (78' for Martinelli) - 6/10SUB:

Takehiro Tomiyasu (86' for White) - 6/10 

Marquinhos (90' for Saka) - 6/10  

Ethan Nwaneri (90' for Vieira) - We'll give the 15-year-old 10/10 just because it was a day he and everyone present will never forget
