How we rated Arsenal during their close fought 2-1 win over West Ham at Upton Park…
Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla was a magician in midfield during their win over Sam Allardyce’s side, and the Spaniard looks to be finding his form again at the perfect time.

Arsenal player ratings against West Ham:
GK) Wojciech Szczesny – 8
Totally dominant in the air, and was up high to pluck every single cross out of the air. Made things so much easier for his defence.
RB) Mathieu Debuchy – 6.0
Struggled with Andy Carroll’s aerial ability and Enner Valencia’s pace, was also partially at fault for the goal.
CB) Per Mertesacker – 7.0
The only player who could really challenge Carroll in the air, extremely solid defensively.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 7.5
Arsenal’s defence looks so much stronger with the Frenchman at the back, his pace and athleticism a real positive for the Gunners.
LB) Nacho Monreal – 7.0
A decent performance by the Spaniard, although most of West Ham’s good work came down Arsenal’s left.
