Below are the player ratings of the Gunners’ players who featured in this game.
Wojciech Szczęsny – 7.5
Polish stopper ended his season on high with a fine performance today against the Villains. However, he was not tested enough.
Héctor Bellerín – 8
The young spanaird offered great support to Aaron Ramsey who was playing at the right side of attack. He also did his defensive duty by marking Kieran Richardson.
Per Mertesacker – 9 .5
An excellent performance from the German center-back, he controlled Christian Benteke throughout the game and scored a goal from header.
Laurent Koscielny – 8.5
The Frenchman prevented Szczęsny from the opponents' shots. He also had two efforts on goal from head.
Nacho Monreal – 7
Was not on top defensively but did fine in attacking areas.
Francis Coquelin – 7
Coquelin had little to do but he did well when he had the ball. He did his fine interceptions perfectly in the midfield.
Santi Cazorla – 9
The Spanish star rises again after some of average performances in the last few games. He made touches more than any other player on the field and also assisted a goal.
Aaron Ramsey – 7.5
Missed a good chance when the score was 0 – 0. He had only two shots on goal.
Mesut Özil – 9
Was very quiet in the start but slowly was back on track and created several chances for his teammates.
Alexis Sánchez – 9
The Chilean looked sharp as always. His hard work gave him a reward in the shape of a goal and an assist. Created couple of opportunities for Theo Walcott.
Theo Walcott – 7
Scored the opening goal of the game but was not upto his mark. Missed few good chances which would have been converted into goals.
Played only 14 minutes but it was enough for the Frenchman to add a goal for the team.
The English midfielder also played 14 minutes. It was his first FA Cup appearances of the season.
Just play a minute and experienced the FA Cup final atmosphere.
