Simon Collings was at Emirates Stadium to rate Mikel Arteta’s side...
Bernd Leno 6
A quiet afternoon for the German, who had very little to do during the win. A few routine saves to keep his hands warm.
Calum Chambers 8
A clean sheet and an assist for the right-back, who will hope to start there next season. Forming a nice understanding with Pepe ahead of him.
Rob Holding 7
A good afternoon’s work for the centre-back. Made one brilliant block in the first half to stop Brighton taking the lead.
A few shaky moments early on and almost got caught out. He improved as the game went on though.
Kieran Tierney 7
A good performance from the Scot, who looks fit and ready to play at this summer’s Euros. Overlapped well and got forward when he could.
Thomas Partey 7
Some lovely moments and touches from the midfielder, who has had a tough season. Looks much happier playing alongside Xhaka. Hit the bar with a good strike.
Granit Xhaka 8
An impressive performance from the Switzerland international, who was a calming presence in midfield. Barely put a foot wrong all game.
Nicolas Pepe 9 | Star man
Two goals from the Ivorian, who was a threat all afternoon. Both goals were taken superbly well. The winger will be sad the season is over, he’s flying.
A brilliant performance from the attacking midfielder in what could be his last game for the club. Ran the show and set up Pepe’s second goal.
Emile Smith Rowe 6
A quiet game by his standards. Never stopped running and trying, but didn’t have the kind of influence he can have.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 5
A very quiet game from the Arsenal captain, who has had a tough season. Few chances to make his mark today.
Bukayo Saka (Smith Rowe 74’) N/A
Alexandre Lacazette (Aubameyang (79’) N/A
Gabriel Martinelli (Odegaard 86’) N/A
