Mesut Ozil

Another less-inspiring display from the German, who looked out of place throughout his time on the pitch.

He didn’t do anything to help his team get into the game and was rightly substituted in the 68th minute of the encounter.

Things hasn’t been going well the £320k weekly earner since last January, he must return to form soon, else, he lost his place to Alex Iwobi or Torreira in Emery’s first XI .

Alex Iwobi

What a way to lay claim for starting berth in the Gunners team! The Nigerian international surprised many spectators with his breathtaking performances throughout the game.

He tormented the Blues defenders with his tricky run and skills, scored the equalizing goal from Mkhitaryan’s assist.

The young striker still needs to work on his finishing as he missed some opportunities that could win the game.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Just like Iwobi, the Gabonese striker missed many clear-cut chances that should have helped them get past the home team.

He was lively during the game but he needs to begin to show why Wenger spent so much on his signature in last summer’s transfer window.

Torreira

The Uruguayan came on for Granit Xhaka in the second half and he showed why he should be starting in the team.

He brought balance and quality to the Gunners midfield.

Ramsey

Lost his starting spot to Iwobi but was brought into the game for Mesut Ozil in the second half. Had a nice game but couldn’t prevent the team from losing to the Blues.

Lacazette

Played the last 15 minutes of the encounter when he replaced Iwobi in the 75th minute but didn’t see much of the ball as Chelsea were defending their slim lead.
