Jordan Pickford 7
Not his busiest of games but he still had to stand up and be counted in crucial moments. England's number one had his reflexes tested when he was forced to deny Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang from close range early in the second half.
Djibril Sidibe 8
Given that Everton had no natural width on the right hand side of midfield, the recalled Frenchman exploited the gaps and was an energetic presence down that flank, always looking to get forward and start attacks. He did not neglect his defensive duties though and also made some critical interceptions.
Lucas Digne 7
Set-piece deliveries were not up to his usual stellar standards and he'll have been disappointed that a couple of early in-swinging corners failed to make it into the danger area. General play was much more solid though as he put a shift in.
Mason Holgate 7
Reverted to central defence after a couple of games in midfield, he looked assured on the ball and then moved forward back into the engine room when Delph made way to give Everton more legs in the centre of the park.
Yerry Mina 8
Imperious at the back for Ferguson, winning a string of headers and keeping Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and company at bay with some firm but fair 'meaty' tackles which had the Gwladys Street roaring with approval. Ancelotti will no doubt be looking to bolster his numbers in the centre-back department next year but the Colombian showed him he has something to work with already.
Fabian Delph 6
A tough ask for the midfielder to go straight back into the action some seven weeks after his last outing in the 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur. It showed as the veteran midfielder looked somewhat off the pace in the opening exchanges but as he got up to speed he looked his usual reliable self before eventually making way.
Gylfi Sigurdsson 6
Neat and tidy as always but as a player who can be devastating through his spectacular moments, there were few party pieces for the highlights reel on this occasion.
Tom Davies 6
Worked hard to do a job in an unfamiliar wide role rather than central midfield, Everton's home-grown hero cannot be faulted for his commitment but his lack of natural width ensured it was a steady rather than spectacular showing.
Alex Iwobi n/a
Not the afternoon he was hoping for against the club where he spent many years from childhood. An early injury forced him out of the action barely 10 minutes into the contest.
Starting up front but moving to the left wing after Iwobi's early injury he hept Arsenal's defence on their toes with his direct running and certainly gave David Luiz plenty of problems in the first half but his impact faded after the break.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin 6
A typically hard-working display from the centre-forward who has responded well to Ferguson's leadership. Did his best to emulate his boss' old displays in the air but as commanding as he was in this area, his efforts were unable to fashion many chances.
Cenk Tosun (on for Iwobi 11) 6
Like Kean six days earlier he suffered the ignominy of being a substituted sub but unlike the Italian teenager at Old Trafford, he can't complain about being given a fair crack of the whip given his early introduction. Snatched at a couple of opportunities which flew off target.
Michael Keane (on for Delph 72) 7
Will have been disappointed to drop down to the bench but formed a strong partnership with Mina for the closing stages.
Moise Kean (on 80 for Tosun) 6
This time he was the substitute that replaced another sub and he answered Ferguson's call with a more energetic display. Will Ancelotti be able to get the best out of his fellow countryman?
