Guendouzi reveals Emery had long term interest in him

Torreira is yet to start a Premier League game for the Gunners, but has impressed in his substitute cameos and was in similarly sharp form at Emirates Stadium on Thursday.

To give the Spaniard his due, Emery's English is vastly improved since his arrival in May and he now seems able to express himself with clarity and fluency.

Given he made several summer signings aimed at shoring things up defensively, the Arsenal boss will undoubtedly hope that the influence of the new faces grows as they continue to settle in north London.

Arsenal have racked up the wins since kicking off the season with back-to-back defeats against Manchester City and Chelsea, seeing off West Ham, Cardiff, Newcastle, Vorskla and now the Toffees. "Each minute he is playing, he is doing very well".

Arsenal great Martin Keown has paid record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang the ultimate compliment by likening him to club legend Thierry Henry.

Lacazette had been anonymous until that point but, taking a touch to size up his options, the French forward guided a majestic curling shot into the top corner for his second goal of the season. "We had in that moment just one defender in our box - Jonjoe Kenny - and so it's too clear for the assistant referee".

The Gunners were also indebted to goalkeeper Petr Cech, who enjoyed his first clean sheet of the season.

Ronaldo weeps after Juventus red card
However, ESPN has been told it is unlikely that Ronaldo will receive any extended ban on top of the automatic one-game suspension. Ronaldo looked baffled and kept protesting his innocence, briefly laying on the ground to express his disbelief.

The stopper pulled off a similar trick to thwart former team-mate Theo Walcott shortly before half-time and generally kept Emery's side in the contest during the first period.

Lucas Torreira, on his first start for the club, almost added a second before the break, but his free kick went just wide of Bohdan Shust's goal.

The diligent and combative Uruguay midfielder was a reassuring presence alongside Granit Xhaka, whose deep-lying position belies his defensive deficiencies.

Lacazette also hailed the Czech stopper's performance, saying "he took a lot of balls". They still lack a player who can regularly put the ball in the back of the net.

However, Nicholas has questioned Ozil's commitment to the Gunners project under Emery.

The second half in the win against the Irons, though, saw him play much better football, working with his training ground best friend Alexandre Lacazette in tandem excellently.

And they will be confident of winning their next few league games against the likes of Watford, Fulham, Leicester and Crystal Palace - especially with Aubameyang and Lacazette playing so well together.
