Unai Emery believes the Premier League is the toughest in the world

Maurizio Sarri laughed off suggestions that next week's summit meeting with Liverpool is a "must-win" game after seeing Chelsea's 100 per cent Premier League record ended by stubborn West Ham in a 0-0 draw on Sunday. But they shook their heads clear after the interval to tough out the win and Cech took pleasure in the "ugly" success.

While Arsenal continue to build under Emery, Marco Silva's start to life at Goodison Park remains a slow one.

Everton had the better of the first half at Emirates Stadium, with Richarlison - back after a three-match domestic ban for headbutting an opponent - proving risky down the left wing and forcing a good parried save out of Cech.

"Leno is calm. He knows now he is working well".

"We were preparing in pre-season with the young players and every player to give them a chance to show us their confidence and performance", Emery said. "We are happy because it's four victories in a row and in front of our supporters".

He has kept summer signing Bernd Leno on the bench - except for Thursday's Europa League win over Vorskla Poltava - and Emery is pleased with his goalkeeping options.

Having survived Everton's opening salvo, the Gunners clinched their fourth successive Premier League victory thanks to second half goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Cech's heroics laid the foundation for Arsenal's burst of two goals in three minutes, but it might have been different if Emery had been quicker with a planned substitution.

"It is not important, maybe yes!", Emery said with a grin when asked if he was set to substitute Lacazette. "I think this is what we lacked over the last three years, since I arrived".

"Leno will improve and learn with us".

"We needed to change something in this moment to give us another individual quality on the pitch".

"We have had a good relationship since day one and enjoy playing together".

Everton can justifiably complain about the second goal, with Aubameyang clearly in an offside position when receiving the ball from Ramsey's flick at the end of a counterattack.
