Iwobi also had some kind words for Henrikh Mkhitaryan who also impressed on his full home debut by setting up three goals against the Toffees.

A goal for the Blues did come in the 64th minute after Walcott, in a reflection of the futility of the game from Everton's perspective, had been withdrawn and Calvert-Lewin had come on in his place.

It is away from home where Arsenal must improve and at Spurs they could be without goalkeeper Petr Cech, forced off with a calf injury here, after colliding with Oumar Niasse.

Everton briefly rallied with Cuco Martina shooting wide and Theo Walcott nearly grabbing a goal on his first return to the Emirates since his move to Merseyside but Mustafi's saving block denied him after he had sprinted clear onto Oumar Niasse's lay-off. Aubameyang has been likened to Thierry Henry and with that turn and finish today you can see why. Well, good luck with Alexis Sanchez on that one. But Manchester City, and England, fans should be excited that Sterling can get even better considering shooting remains one of the weakest parts of the 23-year-old's game.

Overall he created three key passes, three assists and all three were classified as big chances. He looks a lovely player.

Instead it was Everton who struggled defensively, particularly in the first half when their back three - which included new signing Eliaquim Mangala - was regularly exposed and caught out of position.

Sam Allardyce hooked Michael Keane at half time as his season is going from bad o worse, hopelessly exposed again.

Everton looked more organized in the back in the second half and were getting into the game as Arsenal also slowed down the pace. Or just perhaps is a sign of jealousy. "Well done to him and Mikhy getting the assists".

Arsenal fans were surrounding striker's auto and taking pictures and chanting his name.

Arsenal were quick to get over the disappointment in the midweek against Swansea.

Arsenal host Tottenham in the derby next weekend, and they'll head into the game with renewed confidence with Mkhitaryan and Aubameyang already looking like quality acquisitions. In fact, Arsenal fans end up making themselves look like spoilt little rich kids. Giroud is now in contention with Alexander Lacazzette and several other France forwards to make it to the upcoming FIFA World Cup and his game time at Arsenal was clearly not enough. And, after all, they are in a cup final...
