Arsenal drew another blank at the Emirates, the third game in a row when they’ve failed to score.
Try as they might, they could not shift Sunderland’s bus.
So how did the players do on an individual basis?
David Ospina 6
A quiet night save two stops at the start of the second half.
Héctor Bellerín 6
His work going forward, which was all he was needed for, was rarely as good as it needed to be.
Per Mertesacker 6
Dealt with almost everything comfortably.
Laurent Koscielny 6
Kieran Gibbs 5
Rarely helped Alexis, and didn’t get the ball when he did.
Santi Cazorla 5
The Spaniard is now way off colour, not a good sign ahead of the FA Cup Final.
Aaron Ramsey 6
Tried to make things happen. Didn’t usually come off but one ball to Walcott was superb. Booked.
Jack Wilshere 6
One of our brightest players in the first half (which isn’t saying much) but he added nothing after half-time before being subbed.
Mesut Özil 6
Struggled to pull the strings like he usually does but created a few openings nonetheless.
Alexis Sánchez 5
Another who looks tired and predictable.
Olivier Giroud 6
Was a little unlucky with one chance. A tough night with physical defenders and little help.
Theo Walcott 7
Our best player on the night. We looked more dangerous with him on. Unlucky not to score.
Tomas Rosicky 6
Had little impact, but tried to quicken the pace of our play. Possibly could have scored immediately after coming on.
