Bailed Gabriel out after a piece of atrocious defending early on, saving from Lukaku before making a brilliant slide tackle. Had precious little to do from then, but made one excellent late save on Lukaku to keep his clean sheet intact.
Gave the ball away needlessly during a nervous start but grew into the game, eventually turning in a defensively efficient display.
Forced Mirallas to cut inside often, thus nullifying the Belgian's electric pace, and remained solid, while his significant speed made him a real danger on the break. Poor in possession, however, and often played the Gunners into trouble.
Rarely troubled, and went about his work with a minimum of fuss at left back. Forced to rethink his approach after Lennon's introduction and did so well.
Got lost under a high ball and allowed Lukaku to pounce in the first half, and was only saved by Ospina's quickness of thought. Recovered, however, and made a superb tackle on the Belgian when he was shaping to shoot in the penalty area.
Hugged the touchline while Arsenal was in possession, but showed a willingness to tuck in when the ball was conceded. A constant threat with his pace, he got to the byline often, but his delivery was somewhat lacking. Replaced by Rosicky late.
Played one brilliant touch into Oxlade-Chamberlain early on and continued to impress, his flair bringing gasps from the crowd at times. Unlucky not to score on the stroke of halftime, his long-range effort flying just over the crossbar. Showed a willingness to get stuck in defensively, too, in a superb performance.
Jeered after conceding possession early on but provided the assist for Giroud's goal, his pinpoint corner picking out his striker brilliantly. Struggled thereafter, however, and drifted out of the game, before spurning a superb late chance. The jury remains out, and he must improve.
A fan favorite, the defensive midfielder turned in an understated, if effective, performance, winning the ball back regularly and distributing it well, for the most part. Involved in a sickening clash of heads with Giroud in the second half but was able to continue.
Picked to lead the line despite a woeful midweek performance against Monaco and continued to struggle early on, sending a header wide of the post from 6 yards. However, he hit back brilliantly, volleying home the opening goal after a fine Ozil corner.
Constantly looked to bother the opposition defense, and was never afraid to dip into his box of tricks while on the ball. Created a glorious chance for Giroud in the first half, but the Frenchman could only head wide. Replaced by Welbeck late.
Saw a lot of the ball early on, given Everton's unwillingness to push forward. Had little chance with Giroud's goal, as the ball flew through a host of bodies.
Shows a maturity that belies his years but was nowhere to be seen when Giroud volleyed in his opening goal. A mixed afternoon.
Had precious little opportunity to push forward, given Everton's desire to funnel attacks down the left, but was solid defensively, and marked Ozil out of the game when the German drifted wide.
Lost Giroud in the first half but was let off as the striker inexplicably missed from 6 yards, while he also escaped a handball shout with the score at 1-0. Pulled down Sanchez while the last man in the second half, but the referee waved play on, while he deflected Rosicky's goal past his own goalkeeper. An awful afternoon.
Up against Oxlade-Chamberlain, the 21-year-old showed no sign of nerves and pressed forward at every opportunity, though he often committed himself too early when Arsenal looked to break. On set-piece duty, too, and delivered a number of dangerous balls into the box.
Dropped deep in search of the ball regularly, and grew frustrated with the lack of options ahead of him. Assured in the tackle, however, and performed well in midfield. Replaced by Naismith with Everton chasing the game.
As assured as one would expect at the base of the midfield, though he was caught ball-watching when Giroud opened the scoring. Replaced by Gibson late.
Constantly showed for the ball and looked to make things happen in an industrious display, but he could not provide a killer pass.
Buzzed around the midfield, snapping into tackles and driving forward often, though he could not unlock the Arsenal defense in a frustrating afternoon.
The figurehead of Everton's attack, Lukaku was a constant outlet for the long, raking ball from the back. Almost capitalized on one such pass after a Gabriel error, but Ospina was alert to the danger. He was again denied by the goalkeeper in the second half, as his half-volley was tipped over the bar.
Got little change out of Bellerin on the flank and subsequently drifted inside, even swapping wings at one point, but he could not carve out a chance in an ineffective display. Hooked on the hour mark.
Replaced Mirallas in the second half, and ran on to a chorus of boos. Almost single-handedly turned the tide in Everton's favor, his pace and direct running causing significant problems for the Arsenal back line.
A late introduction but had no time to make an impact.
Thrown on for Besic with 15 minutes remaining.
