All eyes were on the club-record signing Aubameyang and he fully satiated the anticipation of fans by receiving a lovely through ball from Mkhitaryan, his old partner in crime at Borussia Dortmund, and giving it a world-class finish.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan provided three assists and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also scored with an exquisite finish as Arsenal smashed four past Everton in a one-sided first half. The second was a bit different but we are all happy today. I hope he will be capable of being in the squad. "As you can see from today, he's just an fantastic player", Iwobi said.

"Certainly Mkhitaryan will start".

"I feel the quality of his movement was excellent", Arsene Wenger assessed, per the Telegraph.

Spanish midfielder Santi Cazorla remains a long-term absentee with an Achilles injury.

The goal made the Gabonese the sixth Arsenal player to score on their Premier League debut under Arsenal Wenger, and the eighth overall.

Reflecting on the transfer window this week, Wenger admitted that his delight at securing Aubameyang and Mkhitaryan was tempered somewhat by the Gunners' failure to reinforce what has proved again this season to be a ropey rearguard.

Although he has been suffering from sickness this week and his not a definite starter, Aubameyang is 4/5 to score on his Gunners debut.

Granit Xhaka and Aaron Ramsey could continue in central midfield but Wenger may decide to sacrifice Mohamed Elneny as a defensive midfielder to give the Gunners more attacking options.

Everton captain Ashley Williams admits the squad were left "angry and disappointed" as they were torn apart by Aaron Ramsey and the Arsenal new-boys on Saturday. Ramsey has scored six Premier League goals against Everton, the most he has scored against a single opponent in the competition.

He's a complex character, but an excellent player and a guy that can bring the best out of others. Unfortunately, for the Toffees, they were handed a heavy defeat.

Speaking to BT Sport on Saturday night, Keown said: "This guy [Aubameyang] at the front, he can't believe it".
