After fielding Petr Cech ahead of David Ospina in the goal, Arsenal managed to keep Bayern Munich from getting into the score sheet as the Czech International made some vital saves to deny Vidal, Thiago, Lewandowski and Costa.

Hector Bellerin-8

The Spanish youngster had a tough game as he was tormented by Douglas Costa often, but he managed to improve and did a fantastic work in Arsenal’s second goal as he provided Mesut Ozil with the assist.

Per Mertasacker-8

His selection over Gabriel Paulista raised many eyebrows before the start as his pace could be exploited by Bayern’s attack. But the Germain silenced his critics and put up a stunning display as he matched in-form Robert Lewandowski physically and aerially and prevented him from scoring a goal.

Laurent Koscielny-8

Koscielny was involved in numerous important interceptions to deny Bayern and his delivery of balls from defence also helped Arsenal launch several potent counter-attacks. He also produced an excellent recovery challenge to deny Lewandowski an equaliser in stoppage time.

Nacho Monreal-8

Monreal continues to impress and must be a contender for Arsenal’s most consistent player of the season so far. Monreal was defensively excellent against Thomas Muller and also offered an attacking threat in which he delivered the cross from which Walcott almost scored.

Mesut Ozil-8.5
