Santi Cazorla: 6.0
Playing on the left side of Arsenal's front three rather than his normal central midfield position, Cazorla struggled to impose himself on the game in the first half.
He started more brightly in the second, cutting inside to unleash a right-footed shot that was narrowly off target. This proved to be a false dawn and he drifted back to the fringes of the game.
Cazorla was in many ways the weakest performer of the front three, such was his anonymity. His game was summed up when he skied a shot over in the dying seconds.
Theo Walcott: 6.5
Out on the right rather than his favoured central position, Walcott had a bright first half. He put in a good cross for Giroud to head at the near post early on and then had a penalty appeal in the first-half when his legs seemed to give way from under him.
The second half saw Walcott miss a string of chances. He had a great chance at the start of the first half when put through by Diaby, but his clever chip drifted just wide of the post having beaten the goalkeeper.
He really should have scored that chance, and he had another chance on the hour when a Wilshere shot was parried into his path and his shot was cleared off the line.
Finally, Walcott hit the post when he failed to connect with a header properly. Not his best day at the office, but at least he got himself into the right positions.
Olivier Giroud: 6.5
Two chances to score in the space of 30 first-half seconds. A tough header from a Walcott cross and then a badly hit shot when he should have really hit the target. After that he waslargely anonymous in the first half.
He must have wished he was equally anonymous in the second 45 minutes, as he missed a couple of sitters. Giroud failed to hit the target with a header from a perfect Walcott corner and then shot straight at the keeper when presented with a great chance in the 78th minute.
He made amends somewhat by providing the pass for Wilshere's goal.
