Arsenal were looking to offer a quick response after a disappointing performance in midweek.
Winning the game was the order of the day for Arsenal and that is exactly what they done, despite not being at their vintage best.
Facing an Everton side who themselves are under pressure to perform and goals from Olivier Giroud and Tomas Rosicky gave Arsene Wenger a vital win.
GK) David Ospina – 7
Was proactive and consistent in his decision making which led to another clean sheet.
RB) Hector Bellerin – 7
Continuing his rise through the ranks and his pace and adventure from right back was a feature of Arsenal’s display.
CB) Gabriel – 7
Made a wonderful last ditched challenge to deny Romelu Lukaku, who was bearing down on goal, to show fantastic recover pace.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 7
The leader of Arsenal’s back four and looks to have secured a partner who has similar abilities to himself.
LB) Kieran Gibbs – 6
Didn’t do much to convince that he deserves a place ahead of impressive Nacho Monreal.
