Rob Holding 8
His first Premier League start of the season without Willian Saliba didn’t look like it. His crossfield switch was impressive, but he made some key tackles and headers.
I had a sloppy back and had undressed many times and luckily didn’t get punished for it. Arsenal fans want this to be an off day.
Oleksandr Zinchenko 7
to his composure and confidence. He continued to tick the ball as Palace tried to play resolutely and solid in the first stage, making a perfect through-ball setup for Granit Xhaka on the other side.
thomas party 7
It’s a quiet game by his modern standards, and it’s not like he’s done anything wrong. He could hardly come under pressure from Palace’s midfield. Arguably the most comfortable outing of his campaign.
Granite Jaka 8
It was feared that he injured his knee in the first half, but he recovered with touporks and strikes right after halftime to make it 3-0.
Martin Oedegaard 7
He looked to have scored on a few shots from the range and remained central to all Arsenal’s goodness. .
Gabriel Martinelli 8
A constant threat from the left to the top against the ill-fated Joel Ward. The Brazilian did a great job at the Palace full-back and fired a shot into Farr’s corner to give his team the lead.
Buka Yosaka 10
It was a slow start, but soon his immaculate steps took off. Gareth, who has played almost flawlessly with two goals and one of his assists, has his Southgate drooling ahead of his international break.
Leandro Trossard 7
He took no responsibility for his efforts and showed why he is so valuable to an injury-plagued Arsenal team.
Gabriel Jesus 6 (Trossard 65)
Still looking rusty, but that’s to be expected at this stage of his comeback. Minutes and home ovations would have done him a world of good.
Kieran Tierney 7 (Zinchenko 65)
He has the near-impossible task of keeping Zinchenko out of the starting line-up, but his fourth assist for Arsenal just missed the mark.
