Jorginho (CM) - 9/10 - The Italian was superb, as he was in the FA Cup defeat. Such a calming presence, wily defensive, and penetrative with the ball; Jorginho certainly showed his worth on Sunday afternoon.

Declan Rice (CM) - 8.5/10 - After starring at Anfield, Rice was brilliant yet again on the big occasion. Demonic defensive effort aided Arsenal's ability to keep the Reds at arm's length.

Martin Odegaard (AM) - 7.5/10 - Mixed day in possession and should've teed up Martinelli for a potential second in the first half. Superb without the ball, however.
