Here are the Arsenal ratings for their 2-0 win over Manchester City:
GK) David Ospina – 6.5
Despite the clean sheet, Ospina didn’t look totally self assured in goal. His handling wasn’t fantastic, and his distribution was extremely poor.
RB) Hector Bellerin – 7.5
The young right-back looked incredibly calm and composed, and showed experience well beyond his years.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 8.0
Fantastic at the back, regularly putting his body on the line to defend.
CB) Per Mertesacker – 7.5
Dominant in the air, and made a number of superb interceptions and blocks.
LB) Nacho Monreal – 7.0
Struggled a little with the pace of Jesus Navas, but put in a good shift.
