Alex Iwobi what once again fantastic during Arsenal’s 3-2 win over Manchester City.

The Gunners came from 1-0 down to win thanks to goals from Alex Iwobi, Theo Walcott and Chuba Akpom.

Here’s how they all got on.

Petr Cech – 7

Didn’t have a huge amount to do and the goal wasn’t really his fault.

Hector Bellerin – 6

Speedy and sharp as usual.

Rob Holding – 6

Not bad, considering Gabriel threw him in the deep end by being a terrible partner.

Gabriel – 4

Shockingly, the defender was out of position for City’s 30th minute goal. He also kept leaving 20-year-old Rob Holding to mark Sergio Aguero, which is really terrible.

Hopefully, his injury isn’t too serious.

Nacho Monreal – 6

The Spaniard looked lively and put through some lovely balls down the flank.

Granit Xhaka – 6.5

Another superb performance, his passes forward were brilliant.

Francis Coquelin – 5.5

Missed a practically open goal because he hesitated and allowed the City defence to crowd him. Elneny would have scored that.

Aaron Ramsey – 6.5

The Wales international looked sharp and fit going forward. However, his shooting and free-kicks need work.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 6

The wide-man had a huge chance in the 18th minute but his chip was marginally wide. He should have done better.

He did well to force City into a couple of mistakes at the back and other than being slightly rusty in front of goal, he was otherwise pretty good in five-second bursts. He chased every ball down and looked energetic. However, this is the problem. He looks fantastic for about five seconds and then loses the ball.

Alexis Sanchez – 6.5

The Chilean looked fit, as always, and linked up well with Aaron Ramsey.

Alex Iwobi – 5.5

The forward was uncharacteristically quiet… until he scored our first goal just after half-time.


Calum Chambers

Mohamed Elneny – 6

Far more comfortable on the ball than Coquelin.

Theo Walcott – 7

Excellent work for Iwobi’s goal – playing out right suits him… who would have thought it, eh?

He also scored our second goal, putting us ahead for the first time in the match.
