Mesut Ozil inspired Arsenal to a comfortable 2-0 victory over AFC Bournemouth this evening to see us climb to the top of the Premier League table.

Here are my ratings:

Cech  6.5/10 – A virtual by-stander but made a decent save to deny Murray late on and secure a record-breaking clean sheet.

Bellerin  7/10 – A real threat down the right wing but his final ball was disappointing. Solid at the back.

Gabriel  8/10 – Lovely header to open the scoring and made two superb blocks to deny decent chances for the visitors. A beast at the back and a danger from corners all game.

Mertesacker  7/10 – Sloppy start but found his feet and led the defence to another clean sheet.

Gibbs  6.5/10 – A decent game but just isn’t as solid as Monreal. Always looks like he’s got a mistake in him.

Chambers  7/10 – His passing was a little suspect at times but it was a solid effort in an unfamiliar position.

Ramsey  7/10 – Plenty of energy in the middle of the park but wasn’t as influential as he perhaps should have been in such a comfortable win.

Oxlade-Chamberlain  7/10 – Hit the post late on and got in to some promising positions but once again his end product was lacking at times.

Ozil  9/10 – Unplayable. Got one assist but could have had five and finished off a fine move to make it 2-0.

Walcott  7/10 – A real threat with his pace, particularly in the second half, but couldn’t get that goal he craved.

Giroud  7/10 – Lovely assist for the Ozil goal but wasted a couple of good chances to get himself on the score-sheet.
