Arsenal player ratings vs Norwich: Lokonga and White shine; Maitland-Niles struggles

Simon Collings was at Emirates Stadium to assess the Arsenal players…

A solid, if quiet, afternoon for the goalkeeper on his home debut. Looked calm on the ball and he played out from the back well.

A good debut from the Japan international, who has barely trained this week. Looks like he can be a threat going forward.

A strong showing from the centre-back. Played out from the back with real class. Some of his passing was a delight.

A first game of the season for the Brazilian and he did well all things considered. Seems to have a decent enough understanding with White.

Solid stuff from the Scot, who got forward as much as he could. Is forming a nice relationship with Bukayo Saka ahead of him.

Albert Sambi Lokonga 8 | Star man

Taken off before the end but he was excellent. Looks ready to play at this level and will expect to push Granit Xhaka very hard for a starting spot.

Was handed the start in central midfield he has craved, but struggled. Shifted to right-back towards the end of the game.

His performance dipped a little bit before half-time, but he was otherwise very lively. Worked exceptionally hard off the ball too.
