Declan Rice (DM) – 7.5/10 – Another top performance from Declan Rice. Very involved in the Arsenal build-up, also got forward and contributed offensively. It was a nice assist for the first goal, and he was very solid in his positioning, allowing Arsenal domination.
Emile Smith Rowe (CM) – 6/10 – His first start in the Premier League since May 2022. Showed glimpses and flashes of what he was capable of without contributing to a goal. Overall, a tidy performance and was unselfish in his play.
Kai Havertz (CM) – 6/10 – Similar to Smith Rowe, a good performance but a quiet game. Put in a tackle that was met with loud cheers from the Arsenal fans. Shame he didn’t get a goal but an encouraging outing overall.
