Quick Player Analysis:

ARSENAL—

Szczesny: Didn't have too much to do but made a good save from Sidwell and a late stop at the second attempt to preserve a clean sheet.

Sagna: Not in attacking positions as often as might be expected but a generally solid game.

Koscielny: Some important interceptions during the course of the game.

Mertesacker: Solid and dependable, continuing his largely excellent season.

Monreal: Involved more going forward though not always the best end product. Certainly better passing along the ground than attempting to cross.

Wilshere: In and out the game. Attempted a number of quick, chipped passes which didn't come off.

Flamini: Won the ball back well when needed and kept passing simple.

Gnabry: A real threat with the ball at his feet, an excellent display.

Ozil: Not at his best but still almost scored and created the odd half-chance.

Cazorla: Scored the two match-winning goals, but had a good all-round input after the break.

Giroud: Led the line well but never looked a goal threat.

 

FULHAM—

Stekelenburg: Bit of a one-man barrier at times in the second half. Some good saves.

Riether: Kept Arsenal out down their left early on but couldn't stop Cazorla cutting in.

Hangeland: Calm first 45, ran ragged after the break.

Burn: Much the same as his partner.

Richardson: Just looks so far off the Premier League pace.

Sidwell: Fulham's best player. Won the ball, used it well, a threat from range in the first half.

Parker: Not hugely involved and Arsenal bypassed him easily.

Dejagah: Faded out the game after the first 20 minutes or so.

Dempsey: Anonymous for most of his time on the pitch.

Kacaniklic: Little service or support provided to the front man.

Berbatov: Didn't have much to work with, held the ball up well enough.
