Arsenal move into third place as Gunners make ground on their leaders.
Arsenal squeezed past Crystal Palace to move into third place in the Premier League and take full advantage of Man United slipping up against Swansea.
However, it was far from a straight forward victory as Wenger’s men clearly grounded a result in a game which became a physical battle due a poor pitch.
Here is our the Arsenal team rated.
13. David Ospina – 6
Had a few scary moments which questions his decision making but overall did his job efficiently.
21 – Calum Chambers – 6
Looked comfortable until Yannick Bolasie came on and it was a replica of his performance against Swansea with Chambers left isolated against the winger.
4 – Per Mertesacker – 6
Was nervy throughout and relied on the pace of his partner to hide some of his defensive errors.
6 – Laurent Koscielny – 7
Arsenal’s most reliable defender on a day the whole back four look out of sorts against the aerial bombardment.
18 – Nacho Monreal – 7
Got a foothold in the game after struggling to deal with Wilfried Zaha in the earlier parts of the game.
