Gabriel Martinelli - Martinelli put in a good shift but had minimal impact on the game, often isolated up front. 6.


Takehiro Tomiyasu - The Japan international’s introduction at half-time added more stability to the defence, and he was more effective in nullifying Chelsea’s attacks. 6.

Kai Havertz - Had a positive impact in a similar way to the other substitutes. 6.

Emile Smith Rowe - A decent cameo appearance and brought energy into the midfield. 6.

Leandro Trossard - Made an immediate impact with his energy and creativity, adding a new dimension to Arsenal’s attack. Superb finish for the equaliser. 7.
