Given the awesomeness of our first half display I have decided rate the two halves separately . Scores out of 10.
Ospina. Didn’t touch the ball, hence a perfect performance. 11
Bellerin. A constant threat in attack and defended from the half way line. 11
Mustafi. Magnificent 11
Koscielny. Equally magnificent. 11
Montreal. See Bellerin. 11
Xhaka. A metronome of timing and accuracy. 11
Cazorla. Perhaps his best ever AFC performance. 11
Iwobi. The future is bright, the future is Iwobi. 11
Sanchez. Noe-stop energy allied to amazing balance allied to amazing spirit and talent. 11
Walcott. Never better. 11
Ozil. A magician on top form. 11
Not quite a good, so everyone deserves just the 10.
Except the subs who get a 9 for effort (a bit like getting a mark for correctly spelling your name on an exam paper).
Another wonderful evening to be a Gooner.
