42: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is the 8th player to score on his first Premier League appearance for Arsenal.

41: I genuinely hope that Everton will be refunding their supporters who made the trip. This must be torture for them. Disgrace.

39: Woodwork! It’s almost five before the break as Nacho Monreal climbs above his non-existant marker before glancing it against the post.

ARSENAL 4-0 EVERTON – AUBAMEYANG

37: He’s done it! Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has scored on his Arsenal debut, and guess who provided the assist?

That’s right, his old pal Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Aubameyang is played in by Mkhitaryan and Arsenal’s new signing just dinks it over Jordan Pickford. He’s miles offside but not a single Everton player complains.

35: A quick word from our reporter Paul Brown:  “Not Mangala’s fault but got to question the wisdom of throwing a player bought two days ago into a formation he’s rarely played and which has rarely suited this team all season, away at Arsenal. The three of them are still discussing who to pick up…”

33: Here comes Aubameyang, he’s been sent clear by Ozil… saved! The club-record signing shows a turn of pace to leave Everton’s defenders reeling but the shot is saved by Pickford.

30: So, it’s looking like another defeat for Everton away to Arsenal. Supporters won’t be too surprised. The Toffees haven’t beaten the Gunners away since 1996 when Graham Stuart and Andrei Kanchelskis netted.

We could blame financial strength tonight, but apparently Arsenal’s starting XI cost just £20million more than the visitors.

27: Oh Theo! If I could use emojis, I’d put the sad face. Theo Walcott makes an interception and finds himself one-on-one with Petr Cech. The winger delays, delays and delays some more allowing Mustafi to recover and make the block.

25: The ton is up for Rambo. The Welshman has been directly involved in 100 goals in all competitions for Arsenal (52 goals, 48 assists).

23: Bit needless from Laurent Koscielny, who earns himself a booking for a late challenge on Bolasie.

20: Everton have a shot! The visitors manage to string three passes together before Martina arrives to lash a volley wide. Arsenal will be quaking in their boots having seen that…

ARSENAL 3-0 EVERTON – RAMSEY

Errr, this could be a cricket score. Arsenal barely did anything there!

Mesut Ozil is allowed to stroll forward completely unmarked. He lays it off to Alex Iwobi, who cuts it across the penalty area for Ramsey to lash home.

Jordan Pickford is a little unlucky because the shot took a significant deflection, but Arsenal won’t care – the Gunners are in dreamland!

17: This is shambolic from Everton. Nobody seems to know what they’re doing.

ARSENAL 2-0 EVERTON – KOSCIELNY

14: Comedy of errors from Everton. Embarrassing schoolboy stuff.

The ball is flicked on from a corner and Laurent Koscielny nods in at the back post!

Everton tactics were to defend for 90 minutes. What on earth does Sam Allardyce do now?!

13: Theo would have enjoyed that. A loose ball falls to the former Gunner, who spins and strikes a half-volley at Koscielny.

Seconds later Arsenal show incredible pace on the break with Aubameyang’s snapshot deflected wide by Keane. Not a clue what Mangala was doing there. Caught completely out of position.

12: Close! Henrikh Mkhitaryan, not content with a mere assist, grazes the outside of the post with a terrific drive from 20-yards.

10: It’s worth noting that the build-up to that opener was sumptuous. Ozil, Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan were all involved before Ramsey tapped home.

ARSENAL 1-0 EVERTON – RAMSEY

7: That’s a beautiful goal, Everton were chasing shadows.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan claims an early assist after fizzing the ball across the six-yard box for Aaron Ramsey to finish from point-blank range.

Arsenal look extremely sharp indeed.

6: Arsenal are quickly into stride as Williams bundles over Mkhitaryan just outside the penalty area. This is serious Mesut Ozil range.

The German steps up… straight into the wall and Bolasie clears.

3: It won’t surprise too many Everton fans to hear that Arsenal have won more league matches against Everton than any side has against another in the history of the Football League.

Mustafi is almost caught in possession by Niasse but he gets away with it as Cech comes out to clear. And yes, he properly cleared it this time.

ARSENAL 0-0 EVERTON

1: Here we go then. Let the Henrikh Mkhitaryan & Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang show begin! Arsene Wenger has just taken his seat on the bench without gloves or a jacket! He’s so ‘ardddddd!

TWO-MINUTE WARNING

17:28: We’re almost underway folks. Arsenal fans could scarcely be more excited to see Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan playing together. Can Allardyce play the pantomime villain and stop the pair?

ANY OTHER BUSINESS?

17:24: Yes. I would be remiss not to mention that Eliaquim Mangala is making his debut since arriving from Manchester City as Sam Allardyce opts to go with three at the back.

Seamus Coleman is absent. Don’t worry Everton supporters, I’ve heard that Allardyce doesn’t want to rush him back having only made his reappearance midweek.

It’s also strange to see Alexandre Lacazette on the bench. Old news already?

WALCOTT RETURNS…

17:20: Theo Walcott has a point to prove, according to Everton boss Sam Allardyce.

The England international moved to Goodison Park last month in a £20million deal, having found opportunities limited this season under Arsene Wenger, making just six substitute appearances in the Premier League.

By contrast Walcott has played the full 90 minutes twice since joining Everton, providing an assist in his first match and scoring twice in Wednesday’s win over Leicester.

“He’ll be doing the team talk tomorrow,” joked Allardyce.

“I think he is looking forward to it. I am sure he will get a good reception when he goes back to The Emirates considering the time he spent there.”

ARSENAL vs EVERTON – TEAM NEWS

17:15: Club-record signing Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is handed his Arsenal debut as Everton visit the Emirates Stadium.

The Gabon striker arrived from Borussia Dortmund on transfer deadline day and is handed his Gunners bow by Arsene Wenger despite suffering from a virus earlier in the week.

Fellow new recruit Henrikh Mkhitaryan is also given his first start having come off the bench in defeat at Swansea in midweek, while former Arsenal forward Theo Walcott starts for the visitors.

Oh, and £50million Alexandre Lacazette drops to the bench…

GOOD EVENING

17:05: Welcome to our LIVE coverage of the Premier League.

What a cracking way to finish the Saturday fixtures.

Arsenal, fully equipped with Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, tackle Sam Allardyce’s Everton at The Emirates.

Alexis Sanchez netted his first goal for Manchester United this afternoon – how Gooners will want their new signings to get off the mark tonight.

We’re about to find out if they will!

ARSENAL vs EVERTON – PREVIEW

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang may have to wait for his Arsenal debut as illness could rule him out of this contest – a fever means the Gabon forward is a doubt to make his bow.

Manager Arsene Wenger has confirmed Henrikh Mkhitaryan will make his first start but Jack Wilshere has also been ill and could be sidelined, while Danny Welbeck (hip) and Santi Cazorla (Achilles) remain absent.

Everton’s new on-loan defender Eliaquim Mangala could be involved – the Frenchman joined from Manchester City on deadline day and is set to be in the squad. Manager Sam Allardyce may decide to rest Seamus Coleman after his first appearance in 319 days after a double leg fracture, while midfielder James McCarthy is in the early stages of rehabilitation from a similar injury.

Last season: Arsenal 3 Everton 1, Everton 2 Arsenal 1

Top scorers (all competitions): Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal) 17; Cenk Tosun (Everton) 12
