Here, SunSport rates the Gunners’ performances against their French opponents.

Emiliano Martinez 6
Had no chance with the goal and showed safe hands all night but unlikely to challenge Bernd Leno for starts.

Callum Chambers 6
Solid but unspectacular at right-back – does not offer much going forward.

Skhodran Mustafi 5
Could have done better to press ball in build-up to opener, remains a weak link.

Zach Medley 4
Struggled alongside Mustafi for 45 minutes before being replaced, lost his man for the goal.

Nacho Monreal 6
Neat and tidy down the left-flank and always tried to provide an option.

Robbie Burton 5
A couple of nice touches but failed to gain control of the midfield.

Matteo Guendouzi 5
Played a role in Arsenal’s first but was not on top of his game and youngsters needed more from the first-teamer.

Gabriel Martinelli 7
Brazilian starlet showed glimpses of his promise but may need time before he makes an impact in the Premier League.

Tyreece John-Jules 6
Played behind the striker but Arsenal did not have enough of the ball while he was playing to make a real impact.

Reiss Nelson 8
Composed finish from the speedster brought Arsenal level, a willing runner into the channels.
Eddie Nketiah 6
Starved of service while on the field before Unai Emery threw on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Arsenal subs: Joe Willock 6, Sokratis 6, Granit Xhaka 7, Dominic Thompson 5, Ainsley Maitland-Niles 6, Henrikh Mkhitaryan 6, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang 5, James Olayinka 6.
