Arsenal player ratings vs Dundalk: Smith Rowe offers valuable option

Did not have the most confident of performances and at times he was pretty shaky. Unlikely he will be starting in the knockout stages.

A first start for the 25-year-old since December of last year. Didn’t make any errors of note and will be pleased with his night’s work.

Captain for the night and had a solid game playing at the heart of Arsenal’s back-three.

Was the best of Arsenal’s centre-backs on display. Range of passing was good and he looks a contender to start in the Premier League going forward.

Had an easy night at wing-back. Got forward when he could and almost scored with a free-kick in the second-half.

Has been one of Arsenal’s best players in the Europa League this season and continued his fine form tonight with a goal.

Scored a brilliant goal by hammering the ball into the top corner from 25 yards out. Another solid performance from him in which he made few mistakes.

Was excellent in central midfield last week and had another good display, this time at left wing-back. Will hope to play more in the Premier League.

As we know he has the tendency to blow hot and cold. Was fairly quiet tonight, but provided a nice assist to setup Balogun for his goal.

Strengthened his calls to start more by scoring another goal, his fifth of the season. Is now Arsenal’s top scorer in all competitions this season.

Slotted into the side seamlessly. Comfortable in possession and offered creativity too. Looks like a useful option for Arteta.

Dani Ceballos (Elneny 62’) 6

Given 30 minutes as Arsenal closed out the win. Miguel Azeez will perhaps be aggrieved he wasn’t given the chance to shine instead.

Another good cameo from the youngster, who held the ball up well to setup Willock for his goal and then scored himself.

Ben Cottrell (Smith Rowe 76’) 6

Proud moment for the 19-year-old as he got to make his Arsenal debut.

Miguel Azeez (Willock 83’) N/A

Another youngster who was given the chance to make his debut.
