Everton v Arsenal Player Ratings….
It was an all round very good team performance from Arsenal to win away to Everton, with notable inputs from a number of Gunners including Hector Bellerin, Laurent Koscielny, Francis Coquelin, Mohamed Elneny and all of the front four, but I have given the nod to Alex Iwobi mainly because it was his first start in the Premier League and that makes his performance even more impressive.
Ospina 7 – Did everything well apart from once when he was still seeing stars.
Bellerin 8 – Swashbuckling attacking game, great assist and still on hand to help defend.
Gabriel 7 – Grew into the game after an iffy start and simply refused to be beaten.
Koscielny 8 – Flawless from the on pitch captain.
Monreal 7 – Less adventurous than our right back but still a very good game.
Coquelin 8 – Getting back to his best and great pairing with Elneny.
Elneny 8 – Ramsey is going to find it hard to get his place back at this rate.
Alexis 8 – Still not quite there but he is getting close. Brilliant assist for opening goal.
Ozil 8 – Some sublime skills and vision from the German as usual.
Iwobi 8.5 – Still a touch raw but well taken goal capped a fine display.
Welbeck 8 – Pace, power and determination gives us so much more scope in attack. Good goal.
Giroud 7 – Unlucky to have good goal chalked off. Good impact.
Gibbs 6 – Nice cameo.
Chambers 6 – Little time but looked sharp.
