Arsenal player ratings vs Southampton: Bukayo Saka shines as Cedric Soares steps up


Simon Collings was at St Mary’s to lead Mikel Arteta’s rule over players…

There was nothing I could do for the Southampton goal which was a brilliant strike from Stuart Armstrong. A few good stops after that and it was solid.
Shattered by Cédric on the other side and must realize that his place is threatened. Kieran Tierney could come in from the left-back, with Cedric moving to the right.
Currently Arsenal’s best central defender and underlined it again tonight. Just so solid and seldom goes wrong.
Not at his best from the last few weeks and almost gave a late goal with a mistake.
A brilliant performance from the full-back, who came in and shone in Tierney’s absence. Was very effective in the future and appeared to be a real threat.

He went about his business without a fuss as he broke through attacks and started a game of Arsenal. The only concern was that he was limping towards the end.
Another good game from the Swiss midfielder, who has been reborn since his red card against Burnley last month. Prepare the first goal with a nice pass.
He got a goal and was improved by Saturday’s FA Cup loss. Some good moments in attack and worked tirelessly on the ball.
Another good display from the youngster. Clean and tidy in possession, while the ball-less work was also excellent. In a hurry all night.
We are running out of things to say about the teenager, who is getting better and better every week. Caught a goal and assisted here to cap off a great performance.
Missed a big chance in the first minute, but rebounded in style. Prepare the second goal and scored the third Arsenal.
