Arsenal player ratings vs. Everton – Leandro Trossard Substitution Secured victory for Arsenal

Leandro Trossard made a strong case for earning a spot in Arsenal’s starting lineup by coming off the bench and scoring the decisive goal at Goodison Park.

Arsenal initially found the back of the net in the first half through Gabriel Martinelli, but the goal was disallowed due to an offside call. Additionally, Martinelli sustained an injury and was substituted with Trossard.

Mikel Arteta’s team faced challenges in breaking down Everton’s defense until a well-coordinated play in the second half involving Martin Odegaard, Declan Rice, and Bukayo Saka culminated in a spectacular goal by Trossard, securing all three points for Arsenal.

Goalkeeper & Defence

Here are the Goalkeeper and Defence ratings

David Raya (5/10):

Given an unexpected opportunity to make his debut for Arsenal instead of Aaron Ramsdale, he had minimal involvement in the match. He had very little to do as Everton posed almost no offensive threat, making him a virtual spectator throughout the game.

Oleksandr Zinchenko (8/10):

The Ukrainian international put on an energetic performance and stood out as one of Arsenal’s stronger players. He displayed skill and confidence in his ball-handling abilities, and in the second half, he pushed forward more aggressively to assist his team in breaking the deadlock.

William Saliba (7/10):

It is aesthetically pleasing and appears to be a level above the rest of the game. Made very few mistakes and managed the situation with Beto effectively.

Ben White (6/10):

Had ample possession of the ball but faced minimal defensive challenges, although it should be noted that Everton’s offensive efforts were rather subdued.

Gabriel (6/10):

He received a yellow card for impeding Beto’s progress but did not encounter any other defensive issues.


Declan Rice (7/10):

Took charge of the midfield, and it’s challenging to recall any inaccurate passes. Played a role in a delightful passing sequence, ultimately resulting in the game’s sole goal.

Martin Odegaard (7/10):

Likely to be disappointed for not scoring despite twice being thwarted by Jordan Pickford. Played a pivotal part in the goal and maintained his customary influential presence in midfield.

Bukayo Saka (7/10):

Not one of his finest performances for Arsenal, as he faced some robust challenges, but he remained effective by contributing another assist.

Fabio Vieira (8/10)

Entered the lineup instead of Kai Havertz and showcased his skills with some intelligent passing. Delivered a well-placed pass to Martinelli, but the goal was disallowed. Additionally, he generated opportunities for Saka and Odegaard.

Eddie Nketiah (4/10)

Maintained his position in the starting lineup over Gabriel Jesus but didn’t appear threatening in terms of scoring. It was unsurprising to witness him being substituted for the Brazilian with the scoreline still showing no goals.

Gabriel Martinelli (6/10)

Believed he had initiated the scoring with a finish reminiscent of Thierry Henry, capitalizing on Fabio Vieira’s excellent pass. However, he suffered an injury a few minutes later and had to be substituted.

Subs and manager

Leandro Trossard (7/10):

Entered the match during the first half due to Martinelli’s injury and had a relatively subdued performance until he finally opened the scoring with a fantastic finish from Saka’s cross.

Gabriel Jesus (5/10):

Substituted in for Nketiah in the 65th minute as Arsenal was eager for added offensive potency. Despite his reputation for scoring against Everton, the Brazilian had limited opportunities to increase his goal count in this match.

Takehiro Tomiyasu (5/10):

Brought in as a late substitution to assist in securing the victory.

Kai Havertz (5/10):

Granted the final 10 minutes but had little opportunity to make a significant impact.

Mikel Arteta (6/10):

Introduced several alterations to his squad, particularly in the goalkeeper position, but witnessed his team encounter difficulties in penetrating a determined Everton side. His choice to include Vieira in the starting lineup proved beneficial, as the midfielder exhibited moments of liveliness. However, it was Trossard’s exceptional contribution that ultimately clinched the three points.
