Arsenal player ratings vs Everton - Ramsey stars yet again, Sanchez anonymous

Arsenal came from 2-0 down to rescue a 2-2 draw at Everton, but how did Arsene Wenger's players fare individually?

The Gunners had to perform another late recovery just a week after the 2-1 win over Crystal Palace. Having fallen behind to goals from Seamus Coleman and Romelu Lukaku, Arsenal looked to be on the verge of yet another collapse in a game against a top four rival.

Yet a spirited recovery in the final ten minutes saw Aaron Ramsey pull a goal back before Olivier Giroud headed Natxo Monreal's cross into the back of the net to rescue a point with just seconds to spare.

Arsenal's performance was still poor despite the point, and here are Arsenal's player ratings from tonight's game...

Wojciech Szczesny 5 - displayed overconfidence in possession and could've done better with both goals, even if his defence left him massively exposed.

Mathieu Debuchy 6 - caught out of position by Baines and Mirallas during the first half, the Frenchman worked hard to get forward but was positionally questionable in defence.

Calum Chambers 5 - committed some poorly timed fouls against Everton's attack and struggled to cope with Lukaku - despite Wenger saying he would be able to before the game.

Per Mertesacker 5 - struggled to cope with the pace and power of Lukaku at times, and looked a little rusty upon his return to Premier League action after a post-World Cup break.

Nacho Monreal 5 - largely struggled throughout the game, particularly defensively, but somewhat redeemed himself with the cross for Giroud's equaliser.

Mathieu Flamini 6 - worked hard in midfield but doesn't really offer Arsenal enough quality from holding midfield, once again proving that Wenger needs to buy a new midfielder.

Aaron Ramsey 8 - Once again Arsenal's saviour. The Welshman rescued Arsenal last week, and he set off the recovery tonight with a great run in to the box to meet Santi Cazorla's cross.

Jack Wilshere 5 - Wilshere's detractors will be loud again tonight after he failed to impress again. Lots of hustle and bustle, but little end product.

Mesut Ozil 5 - Culpable for Everton's first goal, Ozil simply doesn't have the defensive awareness to play on the wing - partly Wenger's fault, partly Ozil's. Failed to really impose himself on the game throughout.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain 6 - had a couple of encouraging runs and chances in front of goal, but couldn't make the most of his chance in the starting XI.

Alexis Sanchez 5 - played up front on his own, but unsurprisingly didn't get much out of the Everton defence. This system may work better at home, but Sanchez's 26 touches in the game show how quiet he was before being hauled off at half time.


Joel Campbell 6 - showed some defensive responsibility when Debuchy bombed forward which was encouraging, but couldn't create much going forward.

Santi Cazorla 7 - created Ramsey's equaliser and ultimately gave Arsenal more of an attacking spark when he came on.

Olivier Giroud 7 - missed a couple of chances before notching the equaliser, smashing a bullet header past Tim Howard.
