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.

Subs:

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.

    Although he didn’t really stand out, I think the performance shows how important Giroud is at the moment – we are much better with his presence up front. Coquelin as well makes a big difference without standing out. Bellerin did great when he came on, considering he probably wasn’t expecting to play.
    Also having Cazorla and Rosicky gives us much more sharpness and dynamism in midfield and helps us build attacks quickly. Ramsey was easily our best player last season but he might struggle to get back into the side if they keep playing like that. Not to mention Wilshere – without wanting to be harsh he’s miles away from those 2 at the moment.

    Atleast there was discipline in the team yesterday ! There was team spirit! En every body was fighting to win the ball back! I was so much imprest with fracis coquelin who did things well in front of our solid deffence! Please! These players can deliver if A W can just add the DM in case of injuries en afull back! Sanchez is our lion king! Over all the team did so much well!!

    guys the game was fantastic, everyone was givng much. I think A.W must give Coquellin enough time he can do better for us and will need a DM but he can provide the cover while looking for the actual player, and Rosiscky is substantive again. There is a need to start everyone who was injured on bench then bring them later since the team is fully intergtated
