Bernd Leno – 6.5
Not much to do on the night and should have ended with a clean sheet but for the dubious penalty for Benfica.
Cédric Soares – 7.5
Proving to be a very reliable cover for full back positions and even assisted the 57th minute equaliser for Saka.
Hector Bellerín – 7
With Saka in front of him our first choice right back looks much more relaxed . Solid performance from Hector
Gabriel – 7
Another solid performance from Gabriel.
David Luiz – 7
Luiz plays well with Gabriel and hi consistency is improving.
Martin Ødegaard – 7.5
The Norwegian is a very good player and showed it on the night. Brilliant defence splitting pass for Soares assist.
Dani Ceballos – 6.5
Steady performance from the Spaniard.
Bukayo Saka – 8
This young gunner is getting better with every game he plays. Another stellar performance topped by the all important away goal.
Emile Smith Rowe – 7
Another good performance from the youngster, looks like another star for the near future.
Granit Xhaka – 7.5
Xhaka has been much improved in recent weeks. This was another solid performance by him.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 5.5
Missed 3 goalden chances, very unlike him but importantly he is getting into goal scoring situations. Goals will follow.
Gabriel Martinelli – 6
Great to see him back in action. Didn’t have much time to influence the game.
Kieran Tierney – 6
Again – Great to see him back in action. He makes the team stronger.
Nicolas Pépé – N/A
Willian – N/A
Mohamed Elneny – N/A
