Arsenal were looking to offer a quick response after a disappointing performance in midweek.
Despite a nervy first half, the Gunners managed comfortably secure all three points at the Emirates against Everton.
A cool finish by Olivier Giroud from a corner set Arsenal on the way, before Tomas Rosicky came on to settle the game with a deflected effort.
GK) David Ospina – 7
A few dodgy decisions proved to be the right call as the Colombian kept another clean sheet.
RB) Hector Bellerin – 7
With the benefit of decent protection, Bellerin provided great adventure down the right hand side.
CB) Gabriel – 7
After one mistake in the first half which was dealt with by Ospina, Gabriel made a wonderful last-ditch challenge to deny Romelu Lukaku and cap off a solid display.
CB) Laurent Koscielny – 7
Alongside Gabriel, Koscielny quickly becomes the leader of the back four and the role suited the Frenchman.
LB) Kieran Gibbs – 6
Struggled going forward to keep the attacks going but was sound defensively.
