Solid when called upon, and made one superb save in the first half to tip Podolski's drive from the edge of the area over the bar. Distributed well with both hands and feet and pulled off a fantastic save to deny Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Was key in helping Stones deal with Podolski as well as showcasing his usual impressive attacking play on the right-hand side.
Made a number of excellent clearances on the edge of his own box and kept Giroud very quiet. Still has the pace to keep up with play despite his advancing years.
Yet another step in the right direction from the young defender as he showed great confidence on the ball and made some superb tackles. Lost possession in dangerous areas at times but looks a future England international.
Fed Lukaku in the build-up to the opener and took advantage of Sagna's forays forward to find space on the left-hand side. Strong in defence.
Mistimed a couple of tackles early on but soon got up to pace in the match and got the better of Rosicky and Cazorla. Passed the ball effectively in midfield.
Yet another impressive showing at the heart of the Everton midfield as he made some strong challenges as Arsenal looked to break. Also got himself involved in a number of attacks.
Utilised on the right-hand side he ran Monreal ragged with a fine display. Claimed an assist for the opener as he lost his man before scoring a fine individual effort to double the lead.
Broke the deadlock with a cool finish and ran Mertesacker and Vermaelen ragged. Despite not having the biggest of frames he used his body effectively and made good runs in behind.
Balls into the box weren't always as accurate as he would have liked but he showed good pace on the left-hand side. Deserved his goal after robbing Sagna and running half the length of the pitch.
Made some good saves in the first half but could have done better with Lukaku's shot in the build-up to the opener. Should have kept hold of Mirallas' pass into Naismith for the third.
Not much better than his central defensive partner, though he did show good pace on occasion to get back and make key tackles.
Looked to push forward at every opportunity but found himself out of position on more than one occasion. Bad day compounded by losing the ball in the build-up to Mirallas' goal.
Clueless against Lukaku as he failed to deal with the Belgian's physicality and pace. Lost his man for the opener before being sold inside by Lukaku for the second.
Not on the same wavelength as the rest of his defence as Naismith routinely managed to run in behind him. One of his worst showings in an Arsenal shirt.
A chastening return to his former club as he was booed from the first minute and made a number of errors both on the ball and off it.
Late runs from deep caused the Everton defence problems in the first half and he went close to breaking the deadlock early on. Replaced once the third goal went in.
Showed the odd nice touch but wasn't able to influence the game as he would have liked. A peripheral figure on the whole.
Saw the game largely pass him by in midfield as McCarthy and Barry ran the show. Passing was poor and barely made a tackle.
Anonymous for much of the afternoon as Distin kept him very quiet. Fluffed his lines with his only sight of goal during the first half, and spent too much time arguing with the officials.
Looked the most likely of the Arsenal players to score as he tested Howard with an effort from the edge of the area and fired wide twice.
Replaced Podolski but couldn't impact the game on his return from injury.
Had little opportunity to show what he can do after he replaced Flamini in the second period. Almost scored a wonderful consolation late on.
Wasn't able to provide a focal point in attack after coming on for Giroud.
