Arsenal player ratings from Leicester win

The Man of the Match award from this amazing Premier League opener between Arsenal and Leicester City to Olivier Giroud, after the Frenchman scored a fantastic headed winner off the underside of the bar despite the attentions of both of the Foxes big centre backs, but he was only a sub and for all round performance, especially on his EPL debut I have gone for Alexandre Lacazette.

Cech 6 – Uncharacteristically nervy display but also some good saves.

Holding 5 – An awful night showed the youngster needs an experienced hand to guide him.

Monreal 5 – Must never play that central role in a three again.

Kolasinac 7 – Also sloppy at times but much better than the others in defence and a real threat the other way.

Chamberlain 7 – Tried to do too much at times but an impressive and dynamic game in general. Created first goal.

Xhaka 6 – Redeemed himself with exquisite assist for Ramsey but some awful passing nearly killed us.

Elneny 6 – Great cross for opener and mostly good but also gave the ball away cheaply and regularly.

Bellerin 7 – One or two sloppy passes but a decent game overall without hitting top form.

Ozil 6 – Flashes of brilliance and the hub of creativity but not enough overall from him.

Welbeck 7.5 – Put in a real shift and took the crucial and timely second goal very well.

Lacazette 8.5 – Sniper’s instincts, movement, sharp, technical and showed grit to track back and get stuck in.

Ramsey 8 – That is what you want from a player off the bench. Desire and impact.

Giroud 8 – As above and what a touch to set up Lacazette before he scored the winner.
