David Raya - 7.5

The keeper made his lone significant save during the second half, but he was extremely lucky to escape punishment for the flap that resulted in a 2-0 Bournemouth goal that was disallowed.

Ben White - 6.5 

The defender was stellar from the start, especially in the later half, although he became much more subdued after the first half hour.

William Saliba - 7.5

Saliba on a Saturday afternoon was feeling mellow machine that won the match and controlled the channel. As strong as the entire season.

Gabriel - 7

Although he's had a great season, this wasn't his best game. Saliba was dictatorial in her calm, while Gabriel never seemed to be at ease and had a few awkward moments. Breaking the forbidden aim, nevertheless.

Tomiyasu - 6.5

Antoine Semenyo was a formidable opponent for the Japanese international, but Tomiyasu was capable of to equal the Bournemouth attacker physically. Semenyo was unable to get past the full-back for Arsenal.

Declan Rice - 7.5

The superstar posed a threat to the Cherries inside the left half-space, and his deft flick set up Trossard's goal. He could cover distance at will thanks to his relentless engine. completed a strong performance by adding Arsenal's third goal.

Thomas Partey - 6.5

He played a part in all phases of a superb first half performance, but lacked some of his finesse during the second half.

Bukayo Saka - 8.5

He played with great intensity in the first half and finished it off with a composed penalty kick. less of an impact following the half.

Leandro Trossard - 7

it appeared with Arsenal's vital goal following a rather quiet performance. put up a lot of effort to offer cover during the defensive change.

Kai Havertz - 7.5

Havertz continues to be a headache for opponents in the Premier League. Havertz moved in an incredibly cunning manner the entire time, flinging his body about to cause trouble.

Substitutions -

Gabriel Martinelli - N/A

Gabriel Jesus - N/A

AFC Bournemouth -

Mark Travers - 4.5

The goalkeeper made some great saves during the game and was keeping the opposition at bay. His distribution was decent but did not have much control of the ball for most of the match. The keeper was unlucky to give the penalty away and was not able to save it either which added more to his misery. 

Adam Smith - 6

The right-back was one of the better full-backs for the away side today and did not let many opportunities for the opposition from his flank. 

Marcos Senesi - 6.5

The Argentina centre-back was the leader of the defence today and got in some key interceptions and blocks for his side to deny the opposition from getting the goal in the first half.

Illia Zabarnyi - 7

The Ukrainian defender was a rock at the back for most of the game and was willing to throw his life on the line for his team today. The defender was not at all at fault for the goal that went in against his side.

Dango Ouattara - 4.5

The left-back had a tough time against the pacey Bukayo Saka and was being dominated by the Arsenal attackers on more than occasion. It turned out to be a poor outing away from home for the defender. 

Lewis Cook - 5.5

The centre defensive midfielder was crucial in the side’s defence and got some great interceptions when required the most during the game. 

Alex Scott - 4

The midfielder was not able to keep hold of the possession and was seen helping the defence more often than not. He also got an early yellow card which also affected his team as one more rash challenge would have gotten him the red card. 

Ryan Christie - 5

The Scottish International committed a fair few fouls today and was not able to do much with the ball whenever had possession of it. 

Justin Kluivert - 3.5

The winger was clueless for most of the game and was unable to show any sort of creativity with the ball at his feet. 

Antoine Semenyo - 3.5

The attacker was mostly invisible for most of the game and could not create many opportunities for the team today. His pace was not used well and looked mediocre whenever he had the ball at his feet.

Dominic Solanke - 4.5

The striker was expected to be the big goal threat for the visitors today but saw very less of the ball and was unable to keep hold of the ball for long. The striker had very few opportunities at goal but was trying his level best to go past the Arsenal defenders.
