Arsenal attack can still get better despite five-goal haul - Arsene Wenger

Arsene Wenger has said the Arsenal attack has room for improvement despite Sunday's 5-2 demolition of Everton at Goodison Park.

Wenger fielded Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alexandre Lacazette together for the first time and they responded with a goal each.

But the manager told SFR Sport: "There are still things to improve, but we created a lot of chances through our team movement, and if you add [Aaron] Ramsey with his penetrating runs, we caused Everton a lot of problems.

"After that, it's easier for everyone to express themselves. I'm satisfied with the way we played. Our movement was good, and the quality of our passing was good.

"We were tested mentally because we were losing 1-0. We got back into the game, and we finished the match in a very convincing way."

Lacazette scored his first away goal for Arsenal after Sanchez and Ozil had combined to set him up, but Wenger said fellow striker Olivier Giroud still had a role to play despite losing his starting place.

"Giroud, Lacazette -- it's a never-ending debate. I think both of them are very good players," he added.

"For me there's no difference, and each time it's very hard to decide who starts."
