David Raya: Despite Forest’s lack of testing throughout the evening, Raya was quick to support his defenders when they were under duress. A performance with focus. Well done on the last-minute punch from a corner to stop Awoniyi’s attempt to bounce the goal.

Ben White: Often used overlapping runs to get into the final third. But he frequently delivered a poor performance when he got there. sufficient in terms of defense.

William Saliba: Not too much to notice that evening. That, however, has less to do with him and more to do with Arsenal’s superiority. feeble in granting Awoniyi’s intention.

Gabriel: In their physical duel with Taiwo Awoniyi, he always seems to find his match. handled Chris Wood rather well prior to him, though.

Oleksandr Zinchenko: Although he wasn’t playing at his most cutting edge, his quick thinking on the throw-in opened up the game for Arsenal. An important addition.

Declan Rice: Compared to Crystal Palace, his delivery of the set pieces was less effective. But in the first half, he was astute to keep Arsenal off the counterattack.

Martin Odegaard: His judgment in the last third was a little off from his usual calm demeanor. It’s unfortunate that Jesus’ attempt to score was blocked when he could have had an assist of the season.

With a scooped effort from the edge of the box and a cut-back that deflected onto the roof of the net, Emile Smith Rowe looked to be Arsenal’s most promising player in the first half. Faded a little in the second, but given his short minute count, that makes sense. This was a positive indication of what the Hale Ender should expect in the future.

Bukayo Saka: After a deflection in the first half, he was unfortunate not to find the scoresheet, but he handled his goal well when it eventually came in the second. rewarded for his hard work in the last three minutes.

Gabriel Jesus: From the start of the second half, he appeared to be Arsenal’s most likely. He was unlucky to have his shot deflect off Matt Turner’s inside leg and gain the fortunate deflection. evidence that perseverance is worthwhile. Plus an assist on Saka’s goal!

Gabriel Martinelli: His lack of noise following his late brace against Palace was a little disappointing. Didn’t do much wrong, but didn’t have the desired impact.

Kai Havertz: Started as Saka was about to score the second goal. Though the German was quiet but sturdy, theoretically this should have created more room for him.

Eddie Nketiah: Joined too late to have an impact on the match.
