Front Three

BUKAYO SAKA. 7.7. Tremendous work around the Leicester box. Timed the perfect run for Ceballos to find and, after shaking his defender brilliantly, picked out the exact pass needed to give Aubameyang an easy goal. Just brilliant. You’ll see elite players do worse than Saka did there. And he continued moving and shaking and bending this defense to his will. Was well on his way to man of the match but for being subbed off 20 minutes from the end.. RW. Arsenal

Great movement as always. Did tremendously to position himself where he needed to be on that Saka assist. Couldn’t miss the chance if he tried. Continued to use his speed and momentum to create attacking opportunities for his strike mates. He did start to look gassed as the match wore on and probably should have been taken off long before when he actually was in the 92nd minute.. LW. Arsenal. PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG. 7.6

He was getting feisty in this one. Reckon that comes down to knowing that his job is not secure. Didn’t have a lot of highlights in the early going, but he did cue up a tremendous Aubameyang run just after the first goal. He had some golden opportunities in there that he just couldn’t take, all of which would have and should have doubled the lead, but he was getting involved. He thought he had a crowning achievement in the 67th minute to double the lead like last week but for a couple inches offside.. ST. Arsenal. ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE. 6.7
