during the Emirates Cup match between Arsenal and VfL Wolfsburg at the Emirates Stadium on July 26, 2015 in London, England.

GK) Petr Cech, 8

Didn’t have much to do in the first half, but was solid when called upon in the second. One save from an Oscar free-kick was especially impressive.

RB) Hector Bellerin, 8

It is a testament to the 20-year-old’s abilities that Eden Hazard was quiet for much of the match.

LB) Nacho Monreal, 8

Willian was just as quiet as Hazard for much of the encounter, and the Spaniard was well on top of the winger.

CB) Per Mertesacker, 6

Dealt well with Loic Remy and then Radamel Falcao, but it may be a different story when up against someone like Diego Costa.

CB) Laurent Koscielny, 6

Made no mistakes, but was also rarely called upon until the second half. He performed well when was forced in to action.
