    Francis: Allardyce can complain that the players didn't do what he wanted but he selected a team with basically seven defensive players, playing an unfamiliar formation and with a new player. What did he think would happen?

    Darren: Mkhitaryan reminds me of a Pires/Ljungberg type of player. He’s very direct and creative and always looking move the ball forward. 3 assists today. Bodes well.

  4. Post update

    Will Sam Allardyce be in charge of Everton next season?

    Discuss.

  5. 'Rudderless Blues'

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Mark Lawrenson

    BBC football expert on BBC Radio 5 live

    They will sort themselves out, Everton, but the question is where do they see themselves going? Is Sam Allardyce a short term or a long term option? They seem rudderless at the moment as much as anything.

  6. Top-four aim

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Arsenal

    Arsenal

    Arsene Wenger speaking to BBC Sport: "I want to qualify for the Champions League through the Premier League, that's why the games in front of us is so important."

  7. 'I'm baffled'

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Everton

    Tom Davies

    Sam Allardyce on Everton substitute Tom Davies: "There was one player that showed anything like what we needed and that was young Tom when he came on. He made us play, he got amongst the Arsenal midfield, he got us going forward. We got a goal and could have got another one, and then the fifth goal...where was our defence?

    "I'm baffled, and I need to say to the players 'have a look at yourselves, look at your mistakes and how you can improve'. There's no hiding place."

  8. 'Positive signs'

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Arsenal

    Mkhitaryan

    Arsene Wenger speaking to BBC Sport: "We had more penetration, a quicker and sharper game, we had a different focus to Tuesday [The defeat to Swansea].

    "It was a repetition of the Crystal Palace game, when we were 4-0 up after 20 minutes. I believe the speed of our game was very good, good finishing as well."

    On new signings: "It is very early, but they look to have the quality to integrate into the game we want to play. They are quick, have sharp movement and agile and want the ball. It is very good and positive signs."

    On benching Alexandre Lacazette: "I am very happy with him. We could not afford to let Giroud, Walcott and Sanchez go and bring no one in. That is impossible. In the Europa League Aubameyang can not play, there are all kinds of possibilities to give everyone games."

    On Ramsey: "He is calm in finishing, he used to rush it. Over the years I think he can get 10-15 goals a season."

  9. 'I'm very angry'

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Everton

    Sam Allardyce

    Sam Allardyce to MOTD: "You set out to block the areas Arsenal like to play in, we had the same gameplan that Swansea had on Tuesday. We studied how Swansea played, how defensively sound they were and how they limited Arsenal to very few chances.

    "Swansea only had 30% possession but created chances, but I may as well have been talking in a foreign language. We didn't implement my plans either defensively or offensively and the game was dead and buried.

    "It doesn't matter what system I pick, it's about players playing to their best. You can show them but it's up to the players.

    "I'm not frustated, I'm angry, very angry at the players performing to that level. It's unacceptable."

  10. 'Pathetic first-half performance'

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Everton

    Sam Allardyce

    Everton manager Sam Allardyce said: "It was a disaster. I think I have a lot of trouble with the players taking onto the pitch what we asked them to do. Consistency has been a worry since that burst when I came in, the fact we can perform at that level against Leicester then dip so low in the first 45 minutes against Arsenal.

    "The longer and longer I go on, the players are showing so much inconsistency that I face an uphill battle trying to get them to play at their best week in, week out. It was a pathetic first-half performance."

  12. Second only to Harry

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    This was Sam Allardyce’s 500th Premier League match in charge – only Harry Redknapp (238) has lost more games than him in the competition (196).

  13. 'I like the way Arsenal play'

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Arsenal

    Aubameyang

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to BT Sport: "I am really happy, we won the game in the first-half, the second was a bit different, whole happy today."

    Henrikh Mkhitaryan: "I am very happy, it was a well deserved win, we have to keep doing the same to win the next game and think about getting more points.

    "We played very good attacking football, the second-half was a bit hard. I really like the way Arsenal play and hope to do my best."

  14. 'A disaster'

    Everton

    Sam Allardyce calls his side's first-half display 'a disaster' and 'pathetic.'

    He's not happy with his players at all - blaming them for not doing what he wanted.

    Full reaction to come.

  16. 'Let's push on'

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Arsenal

    Aaron Ramsey

    Aaron Ramsey speaking to BT Sport: “I am delighted, it is one of the moments to remember.

    "Full credit to the team, the game was won in the first-half and hopefully we can keep this focus and quality for the rest of the season."

    On debutant Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang he added: "If that is not him at 100% then we have got a player on our hands. Plus Henrikh Mkhitaryan got a few assists. Hopefully there is a lot more to come and we can push on and finish the season strongly."

  17. 'We needed that response'

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Arsenal

    Aaron Ramsey to MOTD: "It was a great response, we needed that after the game at Swansea. We were at it from the off.

    "Everyone was at it today, and when everyone's at it we are quality. Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan were brilliant today, you can see their link-up play.

    "Our home record is fantastic, we need to replicate that on the road."

  18. 'Far too easy'

    Arsenal 5-1 Everton

    Ronny Goodlass

    Former Everton winger on BBC Radio Merseyside

    How do you go from that win on Wednesday to this defeat today? Arsenal lost at Swansea, 3-1 to the bottom team and so coming here the question was could Everton come out today and say 'yes, we're good enough to compete'.

    Fingers can be pointed at everyone, Everton made it far too easy for Arsenal. It was really, really poor.
