Red Star 0-1 Arsenal—Vote for Player Ratings/MOTM!

Olivier Giroud rescued a misfit, mismatched squad full of youngsters and could've-beens by scoring late on in Belgrade, a beautiful overhead bicycle, and Arsenal remain atop Group H and look to be ready to advance past the group-stage and on towards what is sure to be the pinnacle of the season: a Europa League title!

There were times when it seemed like some squad members had to introduce themselves to each other. Name-tags might have been useful. Be that as it may, we won, and that's all that matters at the moment. Let's get down to the poll, shall we?
