Arsenal managed to snatch all three points at Goodison Park, after a 69th minute goal from Leandro Trossard won them the game 1-0.
In a tight game, where Everton looked to be compact and make Arsenal work for their goal, the persistence of the Gunners payed off in the second half, scoring their goal and going on to secure the victory and the important three points.
Read on for our Arsenal player ratings as we take a look at who made the difference for Arsenal, and who didn’t perform up to standards…
David Raya – 6.5 – Raya didn’t have much to do in this game, as he only had to make one save, however he was important in build up for Arsenal who used him more often, making 30/32 accurate passes and completing 7 out of 9 long balls.
Oleksandr Zinchenko – 7 – Zinchenko played in his familiar role, inverting into midfield to get on the ball for Arsenal in build up and create a 3-2 shape with the other 3 defenders and Declan Rice. He had 100 touches on the ball, 72/81 accurate passes and played 1 key pass.
