    Jorginho (5/10):

    Wasn't on his game. His passing was unusually poor. Subbed at half-time.

    Granit Xhaka (7/10):

    Worked hard, played his part in the third goal.

    Martin Odegaard (7/10):

    Another goal for the captain. Not his best performance, but still caused problems.

    Bukayo Saka (8/10):

    You run out of superlatives for the 21-year-old. Fabulous goal from a fabulous player.

    Gabriel Martinelli (8/10):

    Great finish to make it 2-0 and added a second late on. He's now Arsenal's top scorer.
