Arsenal player ratings vs Everton

Arsenal's good form under Mikel Arteta continued as they sealed a 3-2 win over Everton on Sunday.

The first half saw four goals in which Arsenal went behind and were subsequently pegged back.

Dominic Calvert-Lewin shocked the Gunners by scoring less than a minute into the fixture and it took Arsenal a good 26 minutes to sort themselves out. Eddie Nketiah drew the scores level midway through the half before Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang put the hosts ahead six minutes laer.

But Richarlison and Everton pegged the Gunners back by scoring on the stroke of half-time.

Aubameyang got his second less than a minute into the second half and Arsenal resumed control.

Calvert-Lewin had a golden chance to equalise late on but Bernd Leno produced a superb stop as Arsenal picked up all three points.
