Fantasy Premier League managers everywhere love a good moan about the allocation of bonus points - usually when one of their players gets short-changed. This week was very different, though.
So emphatic, so mesmeric at times, was the quality of this Arsenal win that it was difficult to know whether to be hypnotised by its quality or outraged that a group of players who chronically underachieved for long periods of this campaign should finally hit peak form when it may be too late for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal’s season.
Xherdan Shaqiri delivered one of the goals of the season and Romelu Lukaku continued his remarkable scoring record at Goodison Park but ultimately a controversial penalty in injury time was the deciding factor as Stoke finally triumphed in a seven-goal epic.
Arsene Wenger has a selection problem going into a vital run of early season games. Some might argue the problem is of his own making, but he has to chose between strikers Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud at a time when both need a run of games to increase their goalscoring confidence.
