Matt Turner: Not exactly a confidence-inspiring debut from the American.
Caught in possession when playing out from the back to nearly allow Zurich a goal, was slow off his line and looked a little flappy at crosses.
Takehiro Tomiyasu: Solid enough throughout the night.
Didn’t contribute much to the attack but his reliability at the back enabled Arsenal to maintain their pressure.
Rob Holding: A solid first 90 minutes of the season for the 26-year-old.
Lead the backline well, winning aerial duels, making blocks, typical Rob Holding.
Gabriel: One poor backpass put Turner in trouble but he was impressive aside from that.
The fact he started again is a clear indicator of how much he is trusted by Arteta.
Kieran Tierney: By far his best performance of the season.
Drifted infield well, defended manfully and got forward aggressively to support the attack.
The Scot hasn’t given up the battle for the Arsenal starting left-back spot yet.
Albert Sambi Lokonga: Good at the base of the midfield in what was a more pronounced 4-2-3-1 formation.
Distributed positively and made a few good defensive interventions.
Granit Xhaka: A steady display from the Arsenal captain on the night.
Supported the attack and helped Sambi through the game.
His going down will be a worry though as Mikel Arteta cannot afford to lose any more midfielders.
Fabio Vieira: A mixed full debut from the Portuguese midfielder who was good on the ball mostly but played some poor passes in risky areas and could have done better with his set pieces.
Marquinhos: As debuts go, Marquinhos couldn’t have asked for much more than a goal and an assist.
Perfect start for the Brazilian who wasn’t involved a whole lot, but made it count when he was.
Eddie Nketiah: Eddie’s all-round game looks to have improved so much recently.
Could have let his head drop after the penalty but bounced back well to score a crucial goal on the night.
Gabriel Martinelli: Buzzed around throughout the match and caused problems down the left where most of Arsenal’s attack came on the night.
Oleksandr Zinchenko: Came on too late to influence the game.
Bukayo Saka: Came on too late to influence the game.
Martin Odegaard: Came on too late to influence the game.
Gabriel Jesus: Came on too late to influence the game.
Why Bukayo Saka isn’t registered for Arsenal clash with FC Zurich ahead of Europa League opener.
Edu’s risky Arsenal summer transfer call is already proving to hand Mikel Arteta key £30m gift.
Albert Sambi Lokonga makes Mikel Arteta fume as Arsenal face biggest test of progress.
