VAR is a must in first-class football.

I’ve never been the biggest fan of the system, in fact I think it leads to more human error and frustration based on the incorrect individual opinion of the referee.

But, it would have changed Everton’s game.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang got Arsenal’s second and final goal of the game after being offside by a considerable distance when Aaron Ramsey made his pass, and it killed any chance of Everton getting back into the game.

Alexandre Lacazette’s first was a decent finish in all fairness, but Jonjoe Kenny could have been tighter to him. Either way, it’s another loss for the Blues, this time one that wasn’t reflective of how the game played out.

Without further ado, here is how we rate the Everton players following their defeat at the Emirates Stadium.
