Steven Gerrard praised Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang for a "world class" finish after the new signing scored his first goal for Arsenal in Saturday's 5-1 thrashing of Everton on Saturday.

Ramsey completed his treble in the second half from Mkhitaryan's cutback, and Dominic Calvert-Lewin headed in a consolation. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang grabbed his debut goal in the 37th. "And they're two of the youngest players showing the older players what they should have performed like", he said. "Because they have similar qualities to what our game is about".

Mkhitaryan also assisted on two of Aaron Ramsey's three goals as the Welshman netted his first Premier League hat trick, and it's clear his connection with Aubameyang still remains from their days at Borussia Dortmund.

It was another remarkable goal blitz from Arsenal, who scored four times in the first 22 minutes of their previous home league game against Crystal Palace.

"It was a pathetic, pathetic first-half performance", Allardyce told reporters.

Aubameyang found Mkhitaryan with a clever reverse pass down the right channel and the Armenia playmaker cut an excellent ball across the Everton six-yard box to leave Ramsey with a simple finish. "That is not completely at his best physically, he has still some work to do physically", Wenger said.

"He looks always to give a problem to a defender by his movement".

Arsenal are now sixth in the Premier League, eight points behind Chelsea in fourth place.

"Overall, I think he looked well-accepted by the rest of the team and was understanding very well how we want to play". The only thing we can say is that it was a convincing [home] debut.

Here are five things we learned from an entertaining evening in London.
