Arsene Wenger: 'It's hard to Believe' Mesut Ozil Talked of Arsenal Exit

GETTY Arsene Wenger says Mesut Ozil will not get distracted by transfer speculation

Pickford made another save to deny Sanchez from doubling Arsenal's lead following swift passing around the penalty area of Everton for the last action of the first half.

But centre-half Keane, one of a series of big money signings prior to this campaign, conceded the team's confidence has been hit by their poor campaign.

"We are not in a position in the table that is good for Everton, I understand (but) I have been in football a long time, don't tell me what can happen. That is all I answer about this situation".

Wayne Rooney's opening strike was his 12th against the Gunners - the most that any player has scored against Arsenal - and he did so in typical vintage Rooney style that was nearly a carbon copy of the first goal he scored against them 15 years ago. Sanchez was on fire and has worked very hard after coming back from injury, Mesut as well. "He was sharp physically, very mobile, makes him risky about any defender". If you have that individual quality, it makes them risky against any defender.

"[Ozil] was superb. Agile, quick, intelligent".

He has his critics but Ozil can certainly turn it on at times.

There was, however, a rather freakish moment during the game that sent the internet into a frenzy. Sanchez also produced another fine performance.

The Gunners are now nine points behind leaders Manchester City in the table.

"The media can come out tomorrow and say that he's extending his contract here.On the exact same, it will not change anything.When you play the next game, commit 100 percent". What really counts, in terms of Koeman's future, is the opinion of the Toffees' majority shareholder Farhad Moshiri, who was watching from the stands and no doubt feeling concerned about what he saw.

Arsenal fell behind to Wayne Rooney's opener but made their superiority count with goals from Nacho Monreal, Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey, as well as Ozil and Sanchez.

However, with Ozil orchestrating things for the Gunners, it was only a matter of time before the visitors restored parity, with Jordan Pickford keeping them at bay for much of the first period. Subs: Jack Wilshere (for Lacazette, 77) 7, Francis Coquelin (for Ozil, 82) 6.
