6.8. Really good defending, especially when matched up against the indomitable Adama Traore. It was also Cedric’s tremendous initial pass that sparked the move leading to the opening goal. A near-catastrophic slip around the 60th minute, but nothing came of it. Overall, this was a good first start from him. He’ll be feeling pretty good about it.. RWB. Arsenal. CEDRIC SOARES

6.9. You can’t say enough about his creative delivery from out wide. Defended well too. Better even than Sead Kolasinac behind him. Had to slip in to cover for Kolasinac on several occasions and did so successfully. Of course the first goal came from him pushing forward. It’s just what he does. Even if the ball he played in was deflected, he still put himself in a position to drive that ball into the box. Not at all sure why he was taken off so early, but it was another positive performance up until that point.. LWB. Arsenal. KIERAN TIERNEY
