It's been a long time coming, but Mesut Ozil has finally picked up a Sky man-of-the-match award. I think Theo Walcott was a contender against Man City, but once again the German playmaker oozed true class with two assists.
Then again, Theo's goal was so sublime that he deserved something. Meanwhile, Giroud defied his critics by nutmegging Hart for what proved to be the winner.
The way Yaya Toure was allowed time and space to pick his spot for City's consolation rings alarm bells, but this is an under-strength Arsenal we're talking about. Once the long-term absentees return, perhaps The Gunners can show why the bookies now have them down as favourites to win the Premier League.
