Arsenal thumped Burnley on Sunday to ensure Arsene Wenger’s 606th and final home game as manager ended in the best way possible.

Petr Cech 7

Had nothing at all to do in the first half but was called into action twice within the first five minutes of the second. Nothing too taxing, but that doesn’t always guarantee an Arsenal goalkeeper will do what’s required.

Sead Kolasinac 8

Heavily involved as Arsenal attacked and his goal was an absolute thunderbastard into the far corner.

Calum Chambers 7.5

Deservedly handed another start after his impressive display on Thursday night, and did well again. Tracked his runner well and raised even more questions over Shkodran Mustafi’s place in the starting lineup.

Kostaninos Mavropanos 7.5

When I did my predicted XI for this game I also included a ‘preferred XI’ and Dinos started so I was delighted to see the young Hulk get the nod for this game. How much does he not only look like a centreback but play like one as well? Not afraid to come out with the ball and look for an incisive pass, this kid looks like the real deal.

Hector Bellerin 8

Saw much less of the ball than Kolasinac on the other side initially but it was his run that helped Arsenal open the scoring and that kick started more fruitful attacks down that side. It was his assist for Arsenal’s second and fifth.
