Arsenal player ratings vs Burnley - Sanchez outstanding!

Alexis Sanchez after first goal Arsenal

Arsenal won 3-0 against Burnley today, but how did Arsene Wenger's side fare individually against the Clarets?

Wojciech Szczesny 7 - was decisive when Burnley counter attacked, coming out of his area to sweep up.

Calum Chambers 7 - shaky in possession to start the game but settled down and scored the second goal in a decent display.

Per Mertesacker 6 - questionable as ever in possession and caught on the break at times, but was strong in the air and got the ball away from danger. 

Nacho Monreal 6 - was given some problems by the pace and movement of Danny Ings and Marvin Sordell, and looks out of position at centre back.

Kieran Gibbs 7 - continues to be one of Arsenal's more consistent performers, giving another fine showing at left back with great energy to attack and defend.

Mikel Arteta 6 - kept the ball moving in midfield but didn't really impose himself on the game much alongside Flamini.

Mathieu Flamini 6 - playing two holding players against Burnley seemed redundant, but did break up counter attacks well.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain 7 - was active down the right hand side, putting in a whopping 17 crosses, and often troubled with his pace and dribbling.

Santi Cazorla 6 - his long wait for a goal continues. Having not hit the back of the net since January, Cazorla's display today was symptomatic of that, struggling in front of goal again.

Alexis Sanchez 9 - outstanding from the first whistle to the last. Sanchez bagged two goals and was instrumental in all of the Gunners' attacks with his livewire style.

Danny Welbeck 8 - lively, direct and full of running, Welbeck was a constant headache for the Burnley defence throughout.

Subs

Aaron Ramsey 7 - went close with a long range shot and got on the ball regularly after coming on for Arteta with 30 minutes to play. 

Lukas Podolski 7 - a promising display from the German, who went close to scoring twice, including hitting a rasping volley against the woodwork.

Theo Walcott 6 - didn't really get involved, but his return is a huge boost to the Gunners.
