Arsenal v Ludogorets Razgrad player ratings

Mesut Ozil lit up the Emirates Stadium with a classy hat-trick as Arsenal thrashed Ludogorets Razgrad 6-0. Here’s how we rated the Gunners players in a one-sided Champions League match.

David Ospina: 7

Despite Arsenal’s overall dominance the Colombian keeper was called upon a few times and did his job when required, not least when producing a smart save following a first-half defensive mix-up.

Hector Bellerin: 7

Occasionally sloppy on the ball but in general he was a good outlet on the right-hand side for the Gunners.

Shkodran Mustafi: 6

Was caused some problems, and a first-half mistake led to a chance for the visitors. He was otherwise comfortable.

Laurent Koscielny: 6

A first-half lapse almost led to a goal, but the defender later atoned with a superb last-ditch tackle, triggering a counter-attack which led to the fourth goal.

Kieran Gibbs: 7

Able to get forward often and used the ball to good effect. Crossed for Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain to score Arsenal’s third goal.

Francis Coquelin: 7

Neat and tidy from the midfielder on his welcome return to the starting line-up after injury.

Santi Cazorla: 7

While Arsenal’s other attacking players shone, Carzola was quietly efficient rather than spectacular before being substituted in the second half.

Theo Walcott: 7

A lively display once again. Missed chances but found the net with a thumping long-range strike – his eighth goal in 10 matches.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain: 8

Another stand-out performer. Scored with a tidy finish, had another effort saved and was also involved in the build up to the first and fifth goals.

Mesut Ozil: 9

Masterful from the German, whose hat-trick summed up his class. His skill and movement were a joy to watch.

Alexis Sanchez: 8

Really looks the part in the number nine role, combining his obvious technical ability with some fine link-up play. The highlight of his performance was a glorious chip for the opening goal. He also showed his skill by scooping the ball into the path of Chamberlain, who was denied by a good save.

Mohamed Elneny: 6

Helped to keep things ticking over after coming on for Cazorla.

Lucas Perez: 7

Did well after coming on as a substitute and cleverly set up Ozil for the sixth goal.
