The Toffees actually begun the match well and had numerous chances to take the lead in the first half with a combination of poor decision making, some ordinary finishing and a strong showing from Gunners keeper Petr Cech all uniting to keep the Merseyside outfit at bay.
During his time in Seville, Emery enjoyed Europa league success three consecutive times between 2014 and 2016, and Arsenal fans will have mixed views on his preferred route into the Champions League next season.
Arsenal have bounced back and have got back on track after their initial slump - which saw them lose against Manchester City and Chelsea in their first two league games this season - and will be looking to continue their fine performance in the league as well as in Europe. The game took a different start though, and it took Arsenal a while to find a rhythm.
Arsenal lost Greek defender Sokratis to injury, leaving the Gunners even more vulnerable to Richarlison, who immediately seized on Sigurdsson's pass and unleashed a powerful drive that forced Cech to save.
Part of this lack of cohesion and stability at the back is due to it still being the early days of Emery's tenure.

After a shaky start this season which has seen several key players struggle to adapt to the new style, Emery's men have seemingly found their feet and won their past three games. Bernd Leno will also improve with us and learn about this competition here.
The Brazilian went close again eight minutes later with a curling effort from 19 yards out that went just wide of the right post following another silky turn to escape his marker. This squad remain a work in progress and some way off reaching the level Silva and their supporters desire, but this proactive and purposeful team display showed the way forward in these matches against the top teams. This looping freekick, which would push his team to victory over Huddersfield, was just another reminder that the Premier League is where Maddison belongs.
"When strikers score goals confidence is high, people trust them and you can feel it in the stadium now".
