Arsenal finally managed to get an away win in the Premier League, beating Everton 5-2. Understandably, the fans were pleased to finally get that victory.
The supporters got to see the attacking trio of Özil, Alexis and Lacazette for the first time, which most were happy about. However, one fan joked that Arsène Wenger was just greedily giving himself a birthday present:
Wenger is so selfish man.. he waited for his birthday to let us watch this trio 😩

But no one was very surprised that the Gunners played so well when they actually had their best team out:
We finally get to field our best XI and with it comes our best football. Shock. Meanwhile you’re discussing the size of ‘cojones’

Today was good. We should try this picking the best players strategy more often.

Meanwhile another fan posted a video to sum up the turnaround by Arsène Wenger’s side, after they fell behind early on:

One Arsenal fan was called out by the official club account for a tweet he made before Mesut’s goal:

Whilst another was silenced after having a go at star striker Alexandre Lacazette, just before the Frenchman made it five league goals for the season:
Some fans just called for some consistency, as the Gunners have been a bit all over the place this week:
we enjoy if u play like this every game

YouTuber and Arsenal fan, Chris Dixon, poked fun at the supporters who held Mesut Özil singularly accountable for the Gunners’ loss to Watford last week:
For finishing a chance at 1-1, I think it's only fair to congratulate Mesut Özil and only Mesut Özil for today's victory. No one else.

Phil Neville couldn’t escape being called out by Arsenal fans either, after his dodgy prediction earlier in the day:

There was still enough time for the Europa League account to ruin things by trying to get involved, which the Arsenal supporters took exception to:

But overall a good day for the fans.
Ahead of a potentially difficult couple of games at the start of November, the Gunners needed to get the points here.
