Arsenal [Player Ratings]: Arsenal vs Bournemouth

Arsenal ended their lean patch in the Premier League with a comfortable 3-0 triumph over Bournemouth. A brace from Danny Welbeck combined with an Alexandre Lacazette goal sealed all three points for the Gunners.

Here are our ratings for the game…

Petr Cech: The 35-year-old was fairly quiet through the game with Arsenal enjoying most of the possession. The veteran made one significant save to grab a clean sheet for himself – 6.5/10

Sead Kolasinac – The Bosnian has quickly turned out to be a fan favourite. Kolasinac provided an excellent assist for Lacazette’s goal in the first-half – 7.5/10

Hector Bellerin – Bellerin looked comfortable in the right wing-back spot, and could have had an assist at the least, had he found a player in the box – 7/10

Nacho Monreal – A relatively calm game for the consistent Spaniard. Did his job relatively well while combining with Kolasinac on the left side of the backline – 6.5/10

Laurent Koscielny – The Frenchman appears to have got his mojo back following a minor stumble at Liverpool. Commanded the team well from the defence – 6.5/10

Shkodran Mustafi – The centre-back was onto everything which came towards the box, A resounding performance from the World Cup winner, who is still fighting for his place – 7/10

Granit Xhaka – Did not make any unnecessary mistakes through his passing but looked assured after a much-needed break following the Liverpool defeat – 6.5/10

Aaron Ramsey – The Welshman was a constant presence in the frontline, and provided the assist for Welbeck’s second goal. His one-two with Mesut Ozil was also pleasing to watch – 8/10

Mesut Ozil – Ozil continued from where he left off with Germany. The attacker was menacing on the flanks with his neat foot work and passing causing difficulties to the Cherries backline. – 7.5/10

Alexandre Lacazette – The Frenchman got his second goal of the campaign with a strong finish from just inside the box. Lacazette looks a huge hit already – 7/5/10

Danny Welbeck – Probably a surprise starter ahead of Alexis Sanchez, but bagged the man of the match with two goals and an assist. Will be interesting to see if he can continue his form – 8/10

Substitutes

Francis Coquelin – The Frenchman nearly scored his first Gunners goal before pulling up with a hamstring injury. Could be another couple of weeks before we see him – 5.5/10

Olivier Giroud – Combined fairly well with Sanchez up front, still waiting for his 100th Gunners goal – 6/10

Alexis Sanchez – The Gunners contract rebel looked lively in the final 15 minutes and we could see more of him in the midweek Europa League clash – 6/10
