Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored on his full debut and gave us all a glimpse of what we can look forward to in the future, as a first half blitz took care of Big Sam’s Toffee’s.

Three goals in 19 minutes destroyed Everton, with the first goal coming after just six minutes thanks to Aaron Ramsey’s close range finish. Aubameyang was involved too, picking out Mkhitaryan and the Armenian registering his first assist with a low ball across the box to the Welshman.

Everton’s defence included new loan signing Eliaquim Mangala, and the Frenchman didn’t exactly link up well with his defensive cohorts, although all the parts of the toffee’s backline were left chasing shadows.

Credit must go to the decision to link up Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang again. The duo were absolutely deadly at Dortmund, and the first goal showed that even in a change of jersey, the intuition between the pair seems to be on point despite the break.

The second goal came from a corner, where Shkodran Mustafi nodded on at the near post and Laurent Koscielny stole in at the back post, just ahead of Aubameyang.

Five minutes later, it was three. Aaron Ramsey took a potshot and the ball spun off the unlucky Eliaquim Mangala and wrongfooted Jordan Pickford. Lucky? Of course, but in our current league plight, of course we’ll take it.

We were carving the visiting team open for fun. We will always have defensive wobbles, such is our focus on attack, but our new strike force - Lacazette included - is jam-packed with goals.

We’ll just have to score more than we concede. Easy enough, right?

We had to wait a little longer for Aubameyang’s goal, well, 18 minutes.

The Gabon striker was offside, but the flag stayed down, and he raced onto a ball from, you guessed it, Mkhitaryan, and his chipped finish was top class and full of composure.

Mesut Ozil was finding space everywhere, Aubameyang was lurking menacingly on the shoulder of the last man, Mkhitaryan was looking dangerous and we still had Lacazette on the bench.

Nacho Monreal very nearly kept up his recent incredible scoring run with a header against the post, and the fact we’ve had more different goalscorers this season than any other team isn’t surprising.

What was most pleasing, is that we were looking full of intent. With Alexis in the team, if it didn’t pull of with the Chilean, we looked blunt. Now, we had players across the front line who demanded the ball and could wreak havoc, rather than relying on just one man.

The first half ended with no more goals scored, and as a Gooner, it was no surprise that after that perfect first half, we conceded early in the second half.

Niasse had already hit the post, but fifteen minutes into the half, Calvert-Lewin pulled a goal back. The youngster, a sub for Theo Walcott - who was rightly applauded and his name sung around The Emirates - nodded in from a Cuco Martina cross.

Petr Cech missed out on his 200th clean sheet again - this was his eighth attempt - and in saving Niasse’s earlier effort, he collided with the Everton man. He was clearly affected by this, but tried to carry on. He eventually went off just after the goal to be replaced by David Ospina.

We were finally roused from our slumber by the goal, and Aaron Ramsey completed his hat-trick in emphatic fashion.

Calvert-Lewin gave the ball away to Mkhitaryan, and our newest playmaker showed his eye for a pass with another assist. He found Rambo with an inch-perfect cutback and the midfielder did the rest.

It was perfect timing, and he was then replaced by Jack Wilshere with fifteen minutes to go, giving him a deserved standing ovation.

Want a crazy stat? Ramsey was the 20th Gunner to bag a treble in the Premiership - the other 19?

Henry, Bergkamp, Wright, Adebayor, Walcott, RVP, Alexis, Anelka, Arshavin, Santi, Giroud, Kanu, Freddie Ljungberg, Bobbi Pires, Overmars, Parlour, Pennant, Wiltord and Kevin Campbell.

The full time whistle blew, and it meant we had scored ten goals in our two games against Everton this season.

This game also signalled that the future isn’t as bleak as recent results would have us believe.

Let’s just enjoy this result and look to the next one. Well done Arsenal. #UTA
