Two first half goals from Lukas Podolski put Arsenal in control against a very cagey Coventry City side who put in a more attacking display in the second period.

Subs Oliver Giroud and Santi Cazorla netted late on to give the Gunners a relatively easy win over the Sky Blues, here’s how we rated the Gunners side.

Lukasz Fabianski – 6

Didn’t have a great deal to do but somehow still doesn’t seem all that comfortably between the sticks, his fellow countryman Wojciech Szczesny won’t be losing any sleep.

Carl Jenkinson – 6

As always the England man is far more comfortable going forward than when on the back foot and hasn’t developed a great understanding with Serge Gnabry as yet.

Per Mertesacker – 7

Solid as ever though in the second half he and his defensive team-mates did perhaps ‘turn-off’ at times, headed assist for second goal.

Laurent Koscielny – 7

Managed to keep Coventry City striker Leon Clarke quiet for most of the game and calm and assured as ever.

Kieran Gibbs – 7

Always ready to get forward and troubled Coventry City’s defence with some decent crosses, provided assist for third goal.
