Newcastle 1-2 Arsenal: vote for Player Ratings/MotM

Giroud scored two first half goals from an early spell of dominance in which we might have scored three or four goals, after which Newcastle were the brighter side for long, uncomfortable periods. An early goal from Sissokho made it 1-2, and it was all Newcastle in the second half as they chased the equaliser. Manic, panicked defending from Arsenal, vital saves from Ospina, and wasteful finishing from Newcastle raised the tension without affecting the scoreline. Four minutes of added time were not enough to allow the hosts a chance to salvage the point, and Arsenal were just good enough to escape with the win. How'd our lads do? Vote in the ratings-poll below the fold...
