Everton have now lost consecutive matches for the first time in Marco Silva’s reign, but there were certainly some positives to take from the defeat at Arsenal.

Unai Emery’s Gunners won 2-0 courtesy of goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, but the Toffees had some really good spells, showing confidence on the ball that they simply would not have shown under Sam Allardyce.

Out of possession the star of the show was Gueye, who made a ridiculous ten tackles. To put that number in perspective, no other player on the pitch made more than four tackles.

The 28 year-old also chipped in with three interceptions and three clearances, all while completing 82 per cent of his passes.
