Arsenal rallied from a goal down to emerge winners against Everton in a 7-goal thriller at Goodison Park.
Arsenal had the chance to go ahead early on with chances from Aaron Ramsey and Alexandre Lacazette, but it was Wayne Rooney who scored the first goal of the game.
The goal was Rooney’s 15th against Arsenal, the most he’s ever scored any single team.
The Gunners were able to equalize before the end of the first half. Granit Xhaka’s speculative long-range effort was denied by Pickford, but Nacho Monreal was the first to react and lashed the ball into the back of the net.
Wantaway midfielder Mesut Ozil gave Arsenal the lead early in the second half, and a red card to Idrissa Gueye made Everton’s task way harder.
Lacazette nabbed a third for Arsenal, with Ramsey and Alexis Sanchez completing the resounding win. Oumar Niasse grabbed a consolation goal for Everton in between, but it was too little, too late.
The loss was Everton’s fifth on the trot, and amidst boos from the club’s faithful, manager Ronald Koeman’s days may just be numbered.
