The defence and keeper and song were all solid today.

Rosicky and Bennayoun were brilliant, popping up all over the place, helping out at the back, through the middle, out wide, up front.

Arteta didn't have a great game imo, but how can you give him a bad rating when he scores a match winner like that?!

Van Persie struggled on his own up front, but that was to be expected against City.

Theo wasn't great.

Midfield was absolutely immense.

ARTETA: 94% pass accuracy, 99 touches, 5 long balls, 100% acc, 5 interceptions, 2 key passes, 1 shot on target, 1 goal.

Arteta's pass accuracy was 94%? Looked slack at times to me...
This space used to be more fun...

As far as I'm aware, did pluck that stat from a comment somewhere though. ;)

What annoys me is he always goes for the easy pass, usually sideways or backawards, even if a more challening pass might put someone through. Today he stiffled quite a few of our attacks by doing that. Would explain why his pass rate is so good.

Still, cracking goal, so can't complain!

he really got stuck in as well, much harder at the ball than anyone on the pitch today
