It was a terribly disappointing evening for Arsenal fans as we lost a chance to go back into the European spots against an out-of-form Everton side, but it looks like two steps back for Mikel Arteta’s young team
Aaron Ramsdale: 6
Not too much to do and can hardly be blamed for either goal.
Takehiro Tomiyasu 6
Another solid performance despite being attacked
Considering Everton had so many chances Gabriel didn’t really have a bad game until the last 20 mins when everyone was flustered.
Ben White: 6
Our once unbeatable defence is now looking shakier in every game. Maybe they have been overplayed?
Kieran Tierney 7
Made an excellent run and cross to give us the opening goal. I bet Arteta wishes he had two choices like this for every position!
Bukayo Saka 6
Not even our new superstar could get past the bullying Everton defence. Not one of his better games.
Granit Xhaka 6
He’s probably been rushed back too early, but was quite solid except for his usual booking.
Thomas Partey 6
Certainly played better than last week, but can only shoot in international games!
Gabriel Martinelli 4
He hardly got any touches in the whole game. It was like having Aubameyang on the pitch!
Martin Odegaard 8
The Norwegian didn’t just score our only goal he was involved all over the pitch. My Man of the Match..
Alexandre Lacazette 4
Had less touches than Martinelli! A very poor game indeed.
Nuno Tavares 5
Came on to give Tierney a rest and played as solidly as usual.
Eddie Nketiah 5
Eddie did more in 20 mins that Gabi did all game, but Boy! What a miss!
