Arsenal moved to the top of the Premier League table after grinding out a 2-1 victory over Everton at the Emirates tonight.

Here are my ratings:

Cech  8/10  - Superb save to deny Deulofeu an equaliser in the 86th minute. Could do nothing with the goal. Proved his worth yet again.

Bellerin   7/10  - Another strong performance from Hector. He bombed forward when required and was solid enough in defence.

Gabriel  8/10  -  Excellent last ditch tackle to deny Lukaku lat eon. Also made at least two other superb tackles. Great display.

Koscielny   7.5/10  - Ghosted in to score the second goal and was solid at the back.

Monreal  7/10  - Another steady display once again by the Spaniard.

Coquelin  7/10  - Broke up play in the middle of the park well and even showed off some fancy footwork at times.

Cazorla  7.5/10  -  Lovely free-kick to set up Koscielny and Santi dictated play for much of the game.

Oxlade-Chamberlain  6.5/10  - Gave away possession which led to the breakaway for Everton’s goal. Really needs to get this out of his game because it’s happening too often. But he was a danger at the other end too.

Ozil  9/10  - Stunning ball to set up Giroud for the opener. Yet another assist for the German. Almost got on the score-sheet but smacked from distance the post late on. Outstanding overall display.

Sanchez  7/10  - Clearly in need of a rest but he was still lively when on the ball.

Giroud  8/10  - Scored in his third consecutive game with a glancing header. Smashed the bar midway through the second half. Really stepping up his game since Walcott took his place.


Flamini 6/10 – Missed a great chance to seal the game but missed a close range header.

Gibbs N/A
