Standard Sport’s Simon Collings was at Emirates Stadium to run the rule over the Gunners…
Made a brilliant save in the first half to deny Fred and had a solid game. Called upon in the second half a few times and stood tall.
A solid performance from the Spaniard, whose form has dipped in recent weeks. Managed to keep United’s left side fairly quiet.
Brilliant display from the centre-back. Just keeps getting better and better as every week goes by. One of the first names on the team sheet right now.
Looked a bit shaky against Southampton on Tuesday, but was better here. Made a few vital blocks and interceptions to keep United out.
Was once again asked to play out of position at left-back, but did well. Booked early on when he caught Bruno Fernandes, though steady after that.
His defensive work was good and he broke up the play well. The Ghanaian’s passing was a bit off and loose at times, however.
Good, neat and tidy performance from the Swiss midfielder. Is beginning to form a good partnership and understanding with Partey.
Much better from the winger, who is finally showing signs that he is finding his feet in north London. Was good on the break and caused Luke Shaw problems.
Most of Arsenal’s best attacking play came through the 20-year-old. Full of energy and running, with his pressing excellent once again.
Came in for the injured Bukayo Saka and worked his socks off again. Made one crucial block when covering in defence. Taken off at half-time.
Unlucky not to score when his free-kick struck the bar in the second half. Hold-up play was good and looked a threat when given the chance.
Willian (Martinelli 45’) 6
Missed a great chance just after he came on. Much-improved performance from previous weeks, though.
Martin Odegaard (Smith Rowe 83’) N/A
Eddie Nketiah (Lacazette 90’) N/A
