The Pole took the place of compatriot Szczesny. Could do nothing about the Chelsea goal after being sold short by Jenkinson, and powerless to stop Mata's bullet.
Worked hard up and down Arsenal's right flank but guilty of an awful header back towards his own goal for Chelsea's opener.
Solid defensively as he read the danger and made pertinent interventions to stop Chelsea attacks.

The Dane worked hard following his selection to lead the line for the hosts but movement could have been sharper as he failed to get a genuine sight of goal.
The Australian stepped in for Cech and did everything asked of him with solid handling in his box.
The Chelsea left-back handled Arsenal's attacks with very few problems and always looked to get forward to support the visitors' forays forward.
A couple of shaky moments for the Brazilian but solid on the whole at the heart of Chelsea's defence.
Opened the scoring for the visitors as he pounced on a mistake to volley in off the far post. Dealt well with the attacking threat of Rosicky and Cazorla.
Coped easily enough with Bendtner's threat. Made good decisions defensively and tidy on the ball.
J. Obi Mikel

K. De Bruyne
