Arsenal 2-0 Everton: Vote for Player-Ratings/MotM

After a tepid start, Olivier Giroud flicked home a cross from Mesut Özil in the 38th minute to seize a lead, but it was a long, nervy wait until Tomáš Rosický added the second goal in the 88th to kill it off, again from an Özil assist. Gabriel made his first start Prem start and delivered a number of fine tackles while helping to keep Lukaku in check. Everton had a number of great chances through Lukaku, but, each time, Ospina was there to make the save. The result sends us back up to third place, just four points behind Man City while carving out some important breathing-space between us and Liverpool. We'll take a closer look at how the Prem standings look later; for now, cast your vote for player-ratings and our Man of the Match below.
