Lively opening from the Arsenal midfielder who started the game as if he had a point to prove, having lost the captaincy to Ashley Williams. Good link up play with Joe Allen through the middle of the park, perhaps just guilty of over-playing the final ball. One effort on goal, shot wide.
Picked up an early booking following a clumsy challenge. Less prominent than in the 1st half but one chance saw him clean through one-on-one with the keeper, but he failed to left the ball and dragged his shot tamely wide of the goal.
Overall performance rating: 7.5- a big improvement on recent games.
