Arsenal put in a quality attacking performance against Everton at Goodison, with almost all of their attacking players involved in one or two of the goals.

So how did the players do individually?



Petr Čech – 5

Looked shaky early on, almost giving the ball away in his own box right after conceding to Wayne Rooney’s long-range effort. Generally didn’t make too many mistakes throughout the match until he tried to take on an attacker at the end and conceded as a result. You can’t be making the same mistake twice at a team like Arsenal so I’m going to be harsh on him for that.

Laurent Koscielny – 7

Committed a dangerous challenge late on when there was no need to do so. He wasn’t at fault for the goals, and he was generally good overall, but taking risks like that isn’t a good idea.

Per Mertesacker – 8

He could’ve scored from one corner, and was probably Arsenal’s most solid defender on the day. Nothing he could really have done about either goal, and other than that he did well.

Nacho Monreal – 7

Came up with the goal in the first-half at a key time, but then a poor back-pass took the shine off his performance. He would easily have earned an eight otherwise but he can’t fall asleep like that.
