David Ospina

Made one good save early in the first half, but other than that he had very little to do other than stand around in the rain. Went the wrong way for the penalty. 6

Mathieu Debuchy

The Frenchman gave away the penalty, but was very unlucky as it was never a spot kick. He’d had a solid game up to then. 6

Per Mertesacker

Easy night for the skipper, was barely put under any pressure and never really had to break sweat. 6

Rob Holding

Like his other central defenders, he was never really tested. Quiet evening. 6

Ainsley Maitland-Niles

Arsenal’s brightest player, especially in the first half when he was a real threat. Almost scored within the first two minutes. 7

Calum Chambers

Looked uncomfortable playing in the right wing-back role, didn’t really offer anything as an attacking threat. 5

Mohamed Elneny

Poor display. Didn’t provide Arsenal with any creativity and his set piece delivery was awful. 4

Francis Coquelin

Went close to scoring when he hit the post in the first half, also flashed on effort just wide. Was a wiling runner as always, but lacked quality when in possession. Very frustrating. 5

Danny Welbeck

Looked lively during the first half, flashed one effort just wide. Was replaced at the break. 6

Olivier Giroud

Had to feed off scraps all night and was very isolated. His touch was poor though so couldn’t ever really link up with any runners. 4

Jack Wilshere

Showed some nice touches in and around the box and saw one good effort saved. But he was far from his best throughout and often took too many touches, especially after the break. 5

Alex Iwobi

Introduced at half-time and was one of the few players to actually run at the Koln defence. He caused the hosts some problems. 5

Reiss Nelson

Produced one fabulous late run but saw his shot saved. It would have been a great goal. 6

Eddie Nketiah

Couldn’t make an impact in the last few minutes. 4
