Alexis Sanchez scored twice while Granit Xhaka netted a screamer as Arsenal beat Hull City 4-1 at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday afternoon.
Here are my ratings:
Cech 6/10 | Made a couple of routine saves before giving away a penalty for a foul on Mbokani.
Bellerin 7/10 | Bombed forward whenever given the opportunity and solid at the back.
Mustafi 7/10 | Was caught the wrong side of Mbokani in the build up to their penalty but showed his class too with an encouraging performance overall.
Koscielny 7/10 | Another solid display from the Frenchman. Never in any real trouble at the back.
Monreal 6.5/10 | His crossing and final ball could have been better and their goal was created down his side.
Walcott 7.5/10 | Got himself on the scoresheet with a neat finish and was a real threat down the right.
Coquelin 7/10 | Much better performance in the middle of the park. Always involved and never stopped working for the team.
Cazorla 7/10 | Dictated play from deep and everything went through the Spaniard but he was taken off after receiving his final warning from the referee as he was on the verge of a second yellow.
Iwobi 9/10 | Excellent. His goal-bound shot deflected off Sanchez for the opener, set-up Walcott for the second with a superb back-heel and went close to scoring on a couple of occasions.
Ozil 7/10 | Saw a lot of the ball and kept attacks moving with his incisive passing but wasn’t really at his creative best.
Alexis 9/10 | Deflected home the opener and sealed the three points with a fine goal late on. His link-up play was also much better than it was against PSG and he worked his socks off.
Xhaka 8/10 | Scored an absolute belting goal as he smashed home from 30 yards in to the top corner.
Elneny 6/10 | Added some energy to the midfield in the last 15.
So the win makes it three on the bounce and sees us move level on points in second place in the table. Chelsea up next….
