Its nice to feel positive about the Arsenal eh? Reminded me of the Palace game a few weeks ago - great first half against a poor opposition followed by a bit of a flat second half. Happy to see Xhaka and Iwobi playing better. Really excited about Mkhitaryan.
Cech - 7. Did well putting Niasse off (injuring himself in the process) but otherwise had nothing to do before going off.
Bellerin - 7.5. Superb in the first half as he got forward well. Okay second half.
Mustafi - 7. Good flick on for Koscielny's goal. Made a number of good defensive actions but didn't look comfortable a few times.
Koscielny - 7. Solid without being overly worked, and scored the second.
Monreal - 7. Had a good first half. Unlucky not to score as he hit the bar. Went off injured at half time.
Ramsey - 9. Disciplined when he had to be but also got into dangerous positions. Unreal engine. Scored a hat trick. Third goal was a great finish.
Xhaka - 7. Much improved, on and off the ball. Solid and efficient.
Iwobi - 7.5. Again, much improved. Excellent first half where he was heavily involved in everything we did. Okay second half but had some one or two clumsy moments. Worked hard.
Mkhitaryan - 9. Star of the first half. Good movement, used the ball well, strong defensive effort. Hat trick of assists.
Aubameyang - 7. Quiet for the most part but was involved in the opening goal and took his goal well.
Ozil - 8. Our main man clearly enjoyed the greater movement he had to work with.
Kolasinac - 5. Outjumped for Everton's consolation.
Ospina - 5. Nothing to do.
Wilshere - 5. Didn't have much time to get into the game.
