Arsenal beat Molde FK 4-1 in the Europa League to maintain their 100% record in the competition.

Despite going one goal behind on the night, two own goals, Nicolas Pepe and Joe Willock prevented any chance of a defeat in north London.

Here are the player ratings from the midweek game.

  • Goalkeeper and defence

Bernd Leno - 6 

The German had little to do but was caught flat-footed for Martin Ellignsen's opening strike.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles - 6 

Most play came on the opposite side, he didn't particularly impress enough to take Hector Bellerin's spot at full-back.

Shkodran Mustafi - 6

Molde didn't threaten the Arsenal backline, however the German did his job well of playing out from the back.

David Luiz - 6

A similar story for Luiz who faced few problems from the Molde attack. Once again displayed his impressive range of passing and started a few attacks from the back.

Granit Xhaka - 6 

The Swiss captain played that unorthodox inverted centre back role again tonight for The Gunners. He did his job well and kept the side ticking throughout the game.

Sead Kolasinac - 6

Kolasinac had free roam down the left flank, however failed to assert his domiance higher up the field.

  • Midfield

Dani Ceballos - 7

Had a point to prove after potentially losing his spot in the starting XI to Mohamed Elneny. The Spaniard set the tempo in the middle with some impressive turns and dummy runs and did his claim for a starting spot no harm.

Joe Willock - 8

Arsenal's bright spark yet again. Another impressive display from the 21-year-old who will be knocking on the door of Arteta's Premier League squad after capping his display off with a goal.

  • Attack

Nicolas Pepe - 7

After starting slowly, Pepe's persistance was rewarded with a goal and took it well with a fierce shot into the bottom corner.

The Ivorian will need to eradicate his sloppy errors if he wants to become a regular in the first XI.

Eddie Nketiah - 6

A frustrating night for the young Englishman who was eager to make an impact. His high pressing was commendable however he failed to score on this occassion.

Willian - 6

Started brightly in the first half and looked dangerous in spells for Arsenal. He is still yet to score his first in red and white after signing last summer.

  • Substitutions

Cedric Soares - 5

Little to do in the half-hour he featured.

Bukayo Saka - 7

A notable mention among the substitutes. Came off the bench and made an impact, set up Pepe for Arsenal's third.

Mohamed Eleneny - 5

Provided fresh legs off the bench and helped the side see out the game.

Kieran Tierney - 5

Came on to shore up the defence, little to note.
