Hugo Lloris – 6
No chance for Rosicky goal but against provided an effective goal as sweeper. Save well from Mertesacker.
Kyle Naughton – 5
Still finding his feet at this level you feel and was constantly out of position against Podolski. Delivered poorly.
Younes Kaboul – 6
Despite not training in the weekend the Frenchman remains Tottenham's best defender. Marshalled Giroud very well.
Jan Vertonghen – 7
Distributed the ball well from the back but again made up a high Spurs line which often got caught. More content in second half.
Danny Rose – 6
Refrained from attacking at the fear of being exposed and therefore kept position well.
Nacer Chadli – 6
Missed Spurs' best chance when effort was blocked by Koscielny and adopting central role was consistently involved but had few ideas.
Sandro – 7
Helped keep Tottenham's midfield shape but was too often the source of a lack of invention.
Christian Eriksen – 6
Again deprived of a central role and drifted in and out of the game until replaced in the second half.
Nabil Bentaleb – 5
Has hit a plateau in form since coming into the Surs team and struggled to make an impact for long periods.
Andros Townsend – 4
Suffering a real downturn in form. Continually came inside and became increasingly predictable as a result.
Emmanuel Adebayor – 7
Was the focal points of the Tottenham attack throughout but was limited to just one chance as he headed wide.
Paulinho – 5, Sigurdsson – 6, Soldado - 5
Wojciech Szczesny – 8
Almost allowed spurs to level after dropping the ball twice but generally dealt with crosses well. Had few saves to make.
Bacary Sagna – 7
Another reminder as to the void he will leave at the end of the campaign with a solid showing.
Per Mertesacker – 8
Quickly becoming one of the most accomplished defenders in the Premier League and swarmed all over Adebayor.
Laurent Koscielny – 9
Secured the points with a crucial block on the line from Chadli and formed a solid partnership with Mertesacker.
Kieran Gibbs – 7
Formed part of a solid Arsenal back four and produced a disciplined performance. Rarely went forward.
Tomas Rosicky – 8
Scored a stunning opener after 72 seconds and was a constant source of danger with the ball at his feet.
Mikel Arteta - 7
Says plenty about his performance in the holding role that he was largely anonymous. Disrupted several Tottenham attacks.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 7
Another performance which showed his explosive pace and how crucial he is to the Arsenal cause. Missed a sitter to extend the lead.
Santi Cazorla – 6
Struggling for form as Arsenal's chief creative source but keeps them ticking over in the middle of the park.
Lukas Podolski – 6
Failed to produce much end product despite having a lot of the ball as Naughton switched off. Must improve goal threat.
Olivier Giroud - 6
The pivot of the Arsenal attack but lacked service and was often caught offside. Continues to look weary.
Flamini - 5, Monreal - 6, Vermaelen - 6
