The first half wasn't great to be honest we were all over the shop defensively and weren't great going forward, but we went in at half time 1-0 up via Lacazette's header after Alexis's free kick hit the bar. Second half was an improvement as West Brom didn't trouble us much and we looked better in possession. We doubled our lead thanks to Lacazette's penalty, and on another day could've scored 3 or 4. It might not have been the greatest win ever, but its 3 points and it will do at this stage of the season
Cech - 7. Great save off Rodriguez early on. Spectator in the second half.

Koscielny - 6.5. Looked uncomfortable at the start but got better as the game went on.
Mustafi - 6.5. Very lucky to not concede a penalty early on. Was left exposed a lot in the first half but got better as the game went on.
Monreal - 7. Unreal clearance off the line. Best of the back three.

Bellerin - 7. Lots of energy up and down the right.
Xhaka - 6. Not the best first half but second half was better.
Elneny - 6. Covered lots of ground but offers nothing in the final third.
Kolasinac - 7. Same as Bellerin.

Ramsey - 7. Worked hard and showed great movement. Did very well to win the penalty. Some sloppy moments.
Lacazette - 8. Did what we bought him to do twice.
Alexis - 6.5. Plenty of good moments but mucked about a lot.


Giroud - N/A. Not on long.
Ozil - N/A. Not on long.
Maitland-Niles. N/A. Not on long.
