Saka's rising profile +3 other noticeable things in Arsenal win over Everton

But, alongside David Luiz at the heart of the back four, Mustafi has played his part in three consecutive clean sheets - the first time Arsenal have enjoyed such a run in 10 months.

Arsenal's win yesterday comes exactly a week after they put four second-half goals past Newcastle with no reply at The Emirates. The first from Dominic Calvert-Lewin was made possible by some truly diabolical defending; first Sead Kolasinac bizarrely chose to dash forwards, playing Everton's forwards onside, and the marking from both David Luiz and Shkodran Mustafi was painfully slack. He has been doing so with solid shot volume as well, averaging 3.8 shots per game in his last five matches.

"I think we could have put the tie in a much better position, it is still good, but we had clear chances for top players that we expect to put the ball in the net". But can we really be arsed yet another discussion about whether the name of a manager who's done nothing merits the suffix "ball", or with examining Carlo's Ancelotti's stellar career of success with other people's teams, when we could just talk about Bukayo Sako instead? Danny Ceballos fouled Richarlison in risky area with just 17 seconds on the clock and when David Luiz could only head the resulting free-kick into the air, Calvert-Lewin pounced on it opportunistically with an acrobatic backwards finish off the outside of his boot. Lacazette also drops out, with Nketiah replacing him.

The French forward struck from six-yards in the 81st minute after Bukayo Saka had latched onto Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's pass and whipped in a risky cross.

This season has been a roller-coaster ride for the men in red as they have been highly inconsistent.

Mina caused havoc in the Arsenal box with a backwards header that dropped in front of Bernd Leno and Richarlison managed to get a toe on it ahead of the goalkeeper to prod the loose ball over the line.

Arsenal's latest victory came in Thursday night's Europa League victory against Olympiacos in Greece. "He has to keep his feet on the ground and we have to help him to do that".

Absolutely. It is tough to come to a stadium like this, away in Europe, and get a win and there were a few lessons in the game for us, and some great things for our development as a team. He's coming back and he strikes me as a forward who just doesn't really want to defend he comes back.

"The players: the passion and energy they show every day and the same with the staff and everyone who works here".
