Granit Xhaka scored a 30-yard stunner to seal a 4-1 victory over 10-man Hull City at the KCOM Stadium this afternoon with Alexis Sanchez [2] and Theo Walcott also among the goals.

These are my ratings:

Cech 6

Very little to do before giving away a penalty in the 79th minute to give Hull a way back in to the game.

Bellerin 6.5

Adventurous going forward and given no trouble at the back.

Mustafi 7

Lost Mbokani before he won the penalty but otherwise solid. Showed good positioning at times.

Koscielny 7

Showed his class to stifle any potentially dangerous situations.

Monreal 6.5

Out of position in the build up to Hull winning a penalty. Got forward but final ball was lacking.

Coquelin 7

Still strange to see him bursting in to the box in his new role but to be fair he did well today. No yellow card either!

Cazorla 7

Neat in possession but had to be subbed in the second half as he was one challenge away from being sent off.

Iwobi 8.5

It was his goal-bound effort that deflected off Sanchez for the opener and he almost made it 2-0 shortly after. Teed-up Walcott with a superb back-heel. Great performance.

Ozil 7

Missed a sitter at 1-0 but was always dangerous when on the ball and made things happen.

Walcott 7.5

Put in a couple of decent crosses before making it 2-0 with a lovely dinked finish shortly after the break. Always dangerous before going off late on with cramp.

Alexis 8.5

Flicked home the opener but missed a penalty to make it 2-0 just before half time. Sealed the three points by smashing home the third late on. Much better display through the middle.


Xhaka 7.5

What. A. Goal! Scored a screamer to seal the 4-1 win. Should have started.

Elneny 6

On to shore things up.
