GETTY Arsenal news Unai Emery is making long-awaited changes to Arsenal's backbone

It could all have been so different very early on had the youngster looked up when in good shape and rolled in the Brazil worldwide who would have had the simple task of tapping in to put Everton ahead.

"It is a clear offside for their second goal, and it is a decision at an important stage because at 1-0, we would have kept creating problems for them", he told Sky.

The Gabonese striker's goal was the final one of the game, sealing a victory which leaves Arsenal with their fifth consecutive win in all competitions.

Milner is also the captain of his side, which now sits top of the Premier League having won all six games, giving Jurgen Klopp's side a 100% record going into their match against Chelsea this weekend. Wenger was in charge of the club for 22 seasons and it's going to take more than four months for the Spaniard to turn things around defensively.

Arsenal by contrast seemed to lack a finishing touch despite having two-thirds of the possession.

After a laboured start from Arsenal, they finally pieced together an incisive raid when Hector Bellerin's cross found Aubameyang at the far post. Everton have had a good start to the season and they've got pace on the counter-attack and strength, so we had to be careful when we're attacking because they are a threat.

"Hopefully we can build this up and win the title sooner rather than later". This squad remain a work in progress and some way off reaching the level Silva and their supporters desire, but this proactive and purposeful team display showed the way forward in these matches against the top teams.

The visitors looked the likelier to score in the closing stages and Cech had to parry away Michael Keane's header from a free-kick on the left in the 71st minute, before Sigurdsson's first-time strike from 20 yards out was deflected over by Lucas Torreira on 83 minutes.

A year ago, Maddison was toiling in the bottom half of the Championship with Norwich City.

Playing one - maybe two - players out of position is manageable. This looping freekick, which would push his team to victory over Huddersfield, was just another reminder that the Premier League is where Maddison belongs. They also could have just as easily lost it too.

But Lacazette ensured that lethargic spell wouldn't prove costly when he smashed a sublime opener in the second half.
