Iwobi in action, Aubameyang scores on debut as Arsenal thrash Everton

Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi played all through in Arsenal’s 5-1 victory over a disorganised Everton, as debutant Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored adding to Aaron Ramsey’s hatrick and Laurent Koscielny’s effort.

Aubameyang, a club-record £56m signing from Borussia Dortmund during the week, scored on 37 minutes to make it 4-0 by half-time.

Ramsey had opened the scoring in the 6th minute before Koscielny doubled their lead, which was followed by Ramsey’s second of the night.

Substitute Dominic Calvert-Lewin then headed an Everton consolation in the 64th minute before Ramsey swept in his hat-trick goal exactly 10 minutes after.

The win helped Arsenal reduce their eight-point gap off the top four to five points.

The Gunners will face Tottenham Hotspur in a North London derby at the Wembley Stadium in their next league encounter.
