Thomas Partey (CM) - 5/10 - Gave away the free-kick which led to Everton's opener, and had little influence with the ball. The game passed him by.

Declan Rice (CM) - 5.5/10 - Felt like Arsenal's transition defence was as bad as it's been in a very long time. Rice typically provides so much security, but Everton bypassed the Englishman, who often found himself in very advanced areas, at will. Rice was pretty clumsy out of possession.

Martin Odegaard (CM) - 7.5/10 - The skipper teed up Tomiyasu's leveller with a fine weak-footed cutback as he operated almost exclusively in an advanced right half-space position. However, I think he suffered from Bukayo Saka's absence.
