Arsenal eased to a 3-0 victory over Stoke City at the Emirates this afternoon with Alexis Sanchez helping himself to another two goals.
Here are my ratings from the game:
Ospina 6/10 | Largely untested. Made a couple of routine saves and claimed a few simple crosses.
Debuchy N/A | Forced off after 13 minutes after suffering a dislocated shoulder.
Mertesacker 7/10 | Dealt with Crouch well in the air and was assured in defence.
Koscielny 7.5/10 | Excellent header to open the scoring and was always on hand to snuff out any Stoke attacks.
Monreal 7/10 | Another solid shift from the Spaniard at left-back.
Coquelin 7/10 | Very disciplined display. Sat in front of the defence, broke up play and passed sensibly.
Oxlade-Chamberlain 8/10 | A real threat. His driving runs gave Stoke all sorts of problems. Unlucky not to score in the first half.
Rosicky 7.5/10 | Almost scored with a fine strike and was heavily involved in some wonderful build-up play.
Cazorla 8/10 | Another impressive shift. A lot of our positive attacking work went through the Spaniard.
Alexis 9/10 | MOTM once again. Set up the opener with a fine cross before sealing the victory with two more goals. Getting better and better.
Giroud 6/10 | Back from his ban and was a handful up front. Battled well against Shawcross but wasn’t really a threat in front of goal.
Bellerin 7/10 | Stepped in for Debuchy and didn’t look out of place.
Walcott 6/10 | Fluffed a golden opportunity to score when put through on goal. Understandably still a little rusty.
Ozil 6/10 | Decent 15 minute cameo from the German.
