Petr Cech, 8.5
Jose Mourinho will be striking his head on the wall whenever he sees Petr Cech performing well for Arsenal. Cech once again proved why he is vital for Arsenal to win the Premier League after a decade. Despite conceding one, he saved many crucial chances.
Hector Bellerin, 7
He looked dangerous going forward, but looked a little fatigued as the game went on.
He made a fantastic challenge in the box late in the game and made sure Arsenal claimed those 3 points and celebrated like he’d scored a goal. Had a great game overall.
Laurent Koscielny, 8.5
A great defensive display by the Frenchman as he kept Lukaku quiet for most of the game and also got what proved to be the vital second goal.
Nacho Monreal, 8
The Spaniard had another solid game but didn’t quite get forward as much as he likes. He dealt well with Deulofeu’s and kept him at bay most of the times.
Francis Coquelin, 8
After getting booked in the first half for what was a slip more than a foul, he showed genuine intelligence and maturity to play out the rest of the game knowing one slip could prove fatal. Used the ball very well.
Santi Cazorla, 8.5
Cazorla had an excellent game and dictated the play. He was superb with his creativity and his assist for the second goal. His defensive contributions were also vital at times.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, 5.5
He can be blamed partially for the Everton goal as he decided to shoot the ball rather than playing it to Bellerin. Had a tough game but looked better in the second half.
Mesut Ozil, 9
Majestic at times, his cross for Giroud’s opener was perfect and his overall contribution was immense. He hit the post, created five chances for his teammates and is enjoying himself on the pitch at the moment.
Alexis Sanchez, 6.5
Looked tired still he gave everything against Everton. Looked off-colour in the match.
Olivier Giroud, 9
He continued his goalscoring form with a fine headed goal, bringing him to six in total this season. His hold-up play and distribution was first class. A great response to being benched.
