Arsenal 2-0 Everton (half time)

For once, VAR came to the rescue for Arsenal, allowing Martinelli's goal against Everton to stand, just before half time.

It was the correct decision, as the Brazilian was behind the ball when Saka played it to him.

Saka had scored with a near post screamer before that, after what was a scrappy half with the Gunners registering no shots on target before that.

Arteta cut a frustrated figure on the sidelines so, despite the score line, the Arsenal players can expect a volley of abuse or something similar from the boss.

Ramsdale 6 - taking risks
White 7 - keeping McNeil quiet so far
Saliba 7 - relatively solid
Gabriel 8 - the strongest defender
Zinchenko 6 - a mixed bag
Saka 8 - a goal and an assist
Odegaard 6 - not as incisive as usual
Jorginho 5 - numerous stray passes
Xhaka 6 - quiet
Martinelli 8 - looking sharp
Trossard 6 - not making much impact
