Arsenal secured a crucial 2-0 win over Bayern Munich at the Emirates on Tuesday night to keep their hopes of qualifying for the knockout stages of the Champions League alive.
Olivier Giroud made a significant impact off the bench to hand – literally – the Gunners the lead, before Mesut Ozil added a second in injury time to seal the victory.
However, Arsene Wenger will have Petr Cech to thank for the three points as the shot-stopper was sensational in the win. See how the veteran and his teammates scored in our player ratings below…
Petr Cech – 8/10
Made a string of stunning saves to keep Arsenal in the game, and his presence was huge to help them keep their chances alive.
Hector Bellerin – 7/10
Tested defensively by Douglas Costa, but his pace made him a real threat in attack and played well in both phases of the game before producing a brilliant late assist.
Per Mertesacker – 6/10
Looked slightly nervous early on when dealing with Robert Lewandowski, but kept the Polish striker out along with his teammates.
Laurent Koscielny – 6/10
Similar to Mertesacker, had to deal with the threat of Lewandowski as a group and successfully kept a clean sheet.
Nacho Monreal – 7/10
The Spaniard was steady as usual down the left flank and played his defensive role well to keep Arsenal tight at the back.
