Gibbs – 7 Kept Daniel Sturridge quiet for most of the afternoon and worked well going forward. Gibbs is much more defensively stable than Andre Santos.
Vermaelen – 8 No mistakes from Vermaelen, who showed why he really is one of the best centre-backs in the Premier League. Kept Torres quiet all afternoon.
Koscielny – 8 Worked well with Vermaelen and was unlucky that his header hit the bar in the first half.
Sagna – 6.5 Didn”t really deal with the pace/movement of Kalou as well as I would have expected. Kalou got in behind us a few times and caused some problems.
Song – 7.5 Slow to get into the game, but another solid performance which included lovely chipped ball to van Persie. Deserved to score!
Ramsey – 5 Needs to pay...
