Everton 2-5 Arsenal – player ratings

158

Arsenal had to respond to last weekend’s disappointment when they faced Everton at Goodison Park today, and they did that with an emphatic 5-2 win.

We could, and probably should, have scored more, but that’s nit-picking on a day when we put in probably our best performance of the season.

Here are the player ratings.

Didn't have much to do, but won't thank Monreal for the back pass and a player of his experience shouldn't have switched off like that.

The skipper plays that central role in the back three to perfection.

Not the best back pass he'll ever make, but it shouldn't take away from another consistently good performance and his goal got us back into it at the right time.

Another bad mistake punished ruthlessly but to his credit he kept his head up and played the rest of the game sensibly with some excellent forward passing too. But he's got to cut those errors out.

Still doesn't look 100%, caught out a couple of times near the edge of our box.

Got his first Premier League goal of the season, deserved it thoroughly – he makes things happen and his assist for Ozil was superb.

Played like a man with a point to prove, and he did just that with a goal, an assists, and a new record for this season for chances created a the game with

Good to see him get off the mark away from home, looked to be playing like he was feeling some pressure

Came on, looked lively, got an assist albeit against 10 men, but it was a nice pass which Ramsey dispatched well

Not really on long enough to rate.

Vote is now closed.

10/10: Calvert-Lewin getting an accidental Monreal boot to the face after his snide push which sent Nacho over the hoardings and into the crowd. Karma, bitch!
