Arsenal completeD a gritty 1-0 victory at White Hart Lane on Sunday to reinvigorate their title push, but how did each player get on?
Wojciech Szczesny - 5
The Polish goalkeeper was sloppy at times, gifting Nacer Chadli a simple chance soon into the first half. May find his spot under threat from Lukasz Fabianski in coming weeks.
Bacary Sagna - 6
Worked hard against Chadli down Arsenal's right and would have had a great chance to score but for Giroud's clumsy pass.
Per Mertesacker - 7
A brilliant performance by the big German, who looked assured in defence and had a good shot saved by Hugo Lloris. His partnership with Koscielny is getting better every game.
Laurent Koscielny - 9
The Frenchman barely put a foot wrong all game. He won nearly every header and made a crucial goal-line stop from Chadli. Man of the Match.
Kieran Gibbs - 6
Forced to defend more than he is used to, but Gibbs looked comfortable against Andros Townsend. An outside bet for the plane to Brazil.
Mikel Arteta - 7
Defended very well and, as always, his passing was fantastic. He slipped under the radar a bit but worked very hard.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain - 6
Not the sort of performance we have come to expect from him in recent weeks, but he looked very bright on the counter-attack and should have scored in the first half.
Santi Cazorla - 6
Was forced to play deeper than he likes, but covered a lot of ground and worked exceptionally hard. Posed little attacking threat but his game is not played on the counter-attack.
Tomas Rosicky - 7
Scored an outstanding goal after just 72 seconds which proved to be the winner. Put in a typically gritty display before being replaced.
Lukas Podolski - 6
Younes Kaboul and Kyle Naughton looked troubled by Podolski's speed and presence, but he never really found a goal-scoring opportunity other than a skewed second-half strike.
Olivier Giroud - 4
Poor. Giroud was one of the worst players on the pitch and did not offer an outlet up front.
If Arsenal had signed a goalscorer like Luis Suarez or Diego Costa in the summer they would be in a much better position than they are now.
Mathieu Flamini - 6
Replaced Rosicky and marshalled the midfield as always.
Nacho Monreal - 5
Came on as a second left-back to shield Gibbs near the end.
Thomas Vermaelen - 5
Little time to make an impact.
