Might have been pinpointed as a weakness by Spurs after coming in for Szczesny, but coped well. Excellent early save to keep out Eriksen.
Caught out once early on by Eriksen but otherwise solid defensively and always offering an option when Arsenal had the ball.
Tough tackling and sharp interceptions to keep both of the Spurs strikers quiet for the majority of the game.
Booked for a rash challenge on Dembele and came close to being sent-off when he just nicked the ball as he challenged Soldado. Replaced by Mertesacker at half-time.
Had to be positionally alert against the pace of Tottenham's right side. Caught out a couple of times but generally did well and was tidy on the ball.
An excellent performance from the Spaniard. Always available to pick up the ball, under little pressure, and start attacks with progressive passing.
The Arsenal academy product seemed to relish the challenge more than most. A couple of exquisite passes - particularly for Walcott in the first-half - and looked to drive Arsenal forward. Spat with Dembele was needless.
Fired a couple of sighters just off-target before he smashed Arsenal ahead with his supposedly weaker left foot in the 31st minute. Lovely movement between the lines and sometimes flawless technique.
Sealed the victory as he raced through in the 62nd minute before clipping a delicious finish over Lloris. Brilliant and taking up positions in space on the half-turn.
The much-hyped youngster did not disappoint. Always meaningful on the ball as he played with drive and skill. Fired just over early on and produced a fantastic run and pass for Cazorla's goal.
Given a start down the middle and terrified the Spurs defenders with his speed and movement. Will be disappointed not to score, especially when he fired straight at Lloris in the first-half. Forced off on a stretcher with a knee injury in the second-half, which will be a big worry for Arsene Wenger.
Made a couple of sharp saves to deny Walcott but perhaps could have done better with Cazorla's opener as he seemed to collapse away from the shot.
Terrible rush of blood as he gave the ball away on the halfway line for Rosicky to race through and score Arsenal's second. Never looked comfortable against Gnabry, either.
The Spurs captain looked exceptionally slow and clumsy up against the speed of Walcott. Also poor distribution from the back.
Caught flat-footed and ball-watching in the build-up to Cazorla's opener. Otherwise decent, and broke forward at pace.
The Romanian appeared to be playing a risky game at time but made some important interceptions to keep the score down.
The 19-year-old French midfielder was given his full Tottenham debut and looked rather overwhelmed by the occasion. Couldn't get to grips with Arsenal's midfield, highlighted as he conceded sloppy fouls. Improved in the second-half after the formation change.
Got through plenty of running but found it hard with Spurs outnumbered in midfield. Frustration showed in spat with Wilshere.
Worked hard defensively to support Walker but didn't have enough opportunities to threaten with his pace in the final third.
Should have scored early on but shot too close to Fabianski with his left foot. Struggled to link up the visitors' play until he moved into a central role after Arsenal's second goal.
The centre of attention before kick-off, but barely involved once the match got underway. Perhaps hampered by injury but was off the pace and lacked sharpness. Only moment of note was a virtual air-kick in the second-half.
Dragged shots wide either side of half-time and did little else of note, failing to link-up attacks and not helping the midfield defensively. Replaced by Chadli after Arsenal's second goal.
Towering display from the German centre-back after coming on for Vermaelen at half-time.
Little involvement from Arsenal's record signing after replacing Arteta in the 75th minute but fired just wide in added time.
Sat in midfield and saw out the game after coming on for Wilshere in the 71st minute.
