Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrates scoring Arsenal’s second against Manchester United
Bernd Leno – 7.5
Two crucial saves to deny Lukaku were crucial for Arsenal.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles – 7.5
A nervous start, but grew in stature. Was a colossus for his team by the end. 7.5
Sokratis – 7
Quickly becoming a supporters cult hero. Another powerful display. Booked.
Laurent Koscielny – 8
His experience was decisive in containing United’s strikeforce. Led by example.

Nacho Monreal – 7
Quietly went about his business in Arsenal’s three-man defence. Tenacious performance.
Sead Kolasinac – 7
Marauding display. Up down Arsenal’s left side like a steam train.
Aaron Ramsey – 6.5
Broke forward when he could but the Welshman was a picture of discipline.
Granit Xhaka – 7.5
His goal capped an excellent display. Largely impressive but his ball retention could have been better.
Mesut Ozil – 6.5
His reintegration into Emery’s plans continue. Almost faultless with his passing.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 6.5
Not been on top form in recent weeks, but settled this encounter from he spot.
Alexandre Lacazette – 7
A livewire in attack and won Arsenal’s decisive penalty.
Subs: Iwobi (Ozil 76); Suarez (Aubameyang 80); Nketiah (Lacazette 86)
Not used: Cech, Elneny, Guendouzi, Mustafi.
Unai Emery – 8
Has turned Arsenal into a formidable proposition at home. Further signs of progress.
David De Gea – 5
Won’t want to see Xhaka’s swirling effort again. A rare clanger from he Spaniard.
Ashley Young – 6
Showed his versatility by playing in two different positions. Honest display.
Chris Smalling – 6.5
Composed at the defence and his passing out from the back appears to have improved.
Victor Lindelof – 6
A couple of shaky moments but largely assured for United.
Luke Shaw – 7
Oozed composure. Finally becoming the left-back everyone thought he could be.
Diogo Dalot – 6.5
A workman like effort, but lacked the sort of quality to trouble Arsenal.
Fred – 6.5
Full of energy and showed some nice touches? But was his challenge on Lacazette for the penalty necessary?
Nemanja Matic – 6.5
Patrolled in front of his back four with typical diligence.
Paul Pogba – 6.5
Looked out-of-sorts starting on the left wing, but grew into the game when moved inside. Booked.
Romelu Lukaku – 5.5
One of the heroes in Paris…but the Belgian missed three golden chances at the Emirates.

Marcus Rashford – 7
Threatening throughout. United looked most dangerous when he was one the ball.
Subs: Martial (Dalot, 70); Greenwood (Matic 80);
Not used: Romero, Rojo, Pereira, McTominay, Greenwood, Bailly
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer – 6.5
Tastes defeat in the Premier League for the first time. Will now look for a response.
Referee: Jon Moss – 6
