Rosicky has scored his second Premier League as a substitute this season.
Arsenal midfielder Tomas Rosicky admitted that last week’s result in the Champions League against Monaco affected the team’s “technical” performance against Everton.
A nervy atmosphere around the Emirates Stadium was compounded by the performance on the pitch which was evidently edgy as Arsene Wenger emphasised the defensive side of the game.
The Gunners were caught on the counter-attack twice against Monaco whilst in possession of the ball which leaves them on the brink in Europe, and the players were concious of that against Everton.

“You could see that the lads were affected by it and the technical level of our game was not there,” Rosicky told Arsenal Player.
“It was difficult as we were affected by the loss to Monaco but you go through disappointments throughout the season, you just have to fight through it.”
Rosicky settled the nerves with a deflected effort which made the result seem comfortable in the end, but Arsenal endured some nervy moments throughout.
For the Czech skipper, he’ll certainly hope that his recent contributions will lead to significant role for the remainder of the season and Rosicky is known for his upturn in form during the run-in.
