Arsenal made light work of poor Bournemouth side, running out easy winners at the Emirates on Saturday afternoon.

Pre-match, Arsene Wenger produced what was probably the most well-regarded team of this season.

Without trying to shoehorn the Ox into the side, we automatically looked more balanced. Could it be that Liverpool paid us £40m to start Kolasinac and improve our team?

Alexis was benched but few seemed surprised, or that bothered. His love affair with the Arsenal fans is well and truly on the rocks.

So how did the players do individually?

Well, here’s a clue…there’s not much variation in these ratings this week.

Defence

Petr Cech 7

Put Jermain Defoe on his arse with a drag back inside his own box but was almost beaten by the head of the same player, only to be saved by his post. Other than that, had little to do until the very end of the match when he tipped one over to preserve his cleansheet.

Shkodran Mustafi 7

If this is Mustafi unhappy, I hope we do more to make him miserable. Organising the men around him, he was composed and continues to confuse everyone who hears that Arsene Wenger reportedly doesn’t rate him.

Laurent Koscielny 7

Much more like his usual self but was little troubled like the rest of the defence.

Nacho Monreal 7

Much better on the left of a back three and with Kolasinac ahead of him that left side is pretty solid.
