Matt Turner (GK) – 7/10 – A clean sheet on a relatively quiet evening
Takehiro Tomiyasu (RB) – 7/10 – Knew he was in a battle given the amount of times he hit the deck clutching his face but showed character to win through against spirited opponents
Rob Holding (CB) – 7/10 – A stirring victory aas captain which included a wondrous Cruyff turn - what more can the former Bolton defender ask for - a good night all round
Gabriel (CB) – 7/10 – Had surely geared himself up for a thunderous evening but Oxford's attack lacked a cutting edge
Kieran Tierney (LB) – 6/10 – Not as influential as he would have liked but wasn't for the lack of effort as he bombed up and down the left flank before being replaced on the hour mark
Mohamed Elneny (DM) – 7.5/10 – Opener came from the head of the popular Egyptian, who battled hard in the heart of midfield after boss Mikel Arteta opted to rest colleagues Granit Xhaka and Thomas Partey. Deserved his goal and never let Oxford dominate proceedings
Sambi Lokonga (CM) – 4/10 – Anonymous
Fabio Vieira (CM) – 7/10 – Outstanding creativity via his delivery for Elneny’s opener alllied with his pass for Nketiah's first underlined just what a talent the Portugal star can be.

Eddie Nketiah (ST) – 8/10 – Ring ring! The 23-year-old Lewisham born striker continues to justify boss Mikel Arteta's unwavering faith in the forward. Good to see such calmness when slotting past U's keeper Eddie McGinty
