Everton 0-1 Arsenal: Player Ratings

Everton vs Arsenal live: Latest score as Leandro Trossard goal breaks deadlock at Goodison

Arsenal visited Goodison Park to take on Everton in an all-important clash against a struggling team on a ground they had not tasted victory since 2017. Satanball was in full effect as Everton defended in their shameful numbers, soaking pressure from the visitors and hoping to hit on the break. In the first half, Gabriel Martinelli scored a goal that was ruled out for offside, but in the end, Leandro Trossard’s strike was enough to grant Arsenal all three points. 

Without further ado, here are the Gooner Daily player ratings for the Everton vs. Arsenal game.

Starting XI

David Raya: Received his Arsenal debut in an unexpected game but he showed his aerial prowess to make a lot of claims and showed his sumptuous punting skills with some sleek balls for Saka. (7)

Ben White: Bossed his position on the right and did very well to support the Arsenal attack on the right. (7)

William Saliba: Full Rolls Royce defending on show and responded well to the aerial threats Beto posed. (7)

Gabriel: Looked very assured with Saliba alongside him. Had a shaky moment late on but he made up. (7)

Oleksandr Zinchenko: Was very ubiquitous on the pitch and contributed a lot in the attacking third. (8)

Declan Rice: Made some vital interceptions and anticipations to keep Arsenal in control of the game. (7)

Fabio Vieira: Justified his selection from the start, creating an amazing assist for Gabi Martinelli that was chalked off for offside. (7)

Martin Odegaard: Did well to create chances for his teammates and had some shots that were saved by Everton’s goalie. (7)

Gabriel Martinelli: Looked dangerous on the left flank and scored a well-taken goal after going in behind the defense. I hope he’s not injured for long. (7)

Bukayo Saka: Gave Vitaly Mykolenko a torrid time and got himself a good assist for the winning goal. (7)

Eddie Nketiah: Struggled to make any influence in the game and couldn’t break Everton’s low line, before he was yanked off for Gabriel Jesus. (6)


Gabriel Jesus: Continued his road to full fitness and tried to influence the game spearheading the attack. (6)

Leandro Trossard: Struggled initially but came to terms with the pace of the game and grew in influence. His goal was a peach of a finish. (8)

Kai Havertz and Takehiro Tomiyasu: Did not play enough to earn a rating. N/A
