Front Three

6.4. Has to learn how to take better control of possession on counter-attacks. That said, his work rate has multiplied. He was defending all the way across the pitch and all the way back where a wingback would normally be. And he did settle into the match pretty well, but failed to fully assert himself.. RW. Arsenal. NICOLAS PEPE

8.7. Cool as ever on the penalty, selfless looking out for Tierney for the second goal. He must have really wanted the Golden Boot because his finish in the 34th minute, a half-bicycle, was simply stunning. This was an inspired performance, you could tell he wanted something out of this match and his involvement rocketed up. Did fade away in the second half and when he did have his big chance, he wasn’t able to take it.. LW. Arsenal. PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG

6.5. Great work getting involved in the attack and promoting positive attacking play. One of the best touches you’ll ever see on a longball just before the half-hour mark, but capitalize on it. He is such a strange blend of soft touches and clunky ones.. ST. Arsenal. ALEXANDRE LACAZETTE
