Arteta frustrated after Utd defeat

Arsenal travel to Everton on Monday night in the Premier League looking to bounce back after last week’s setback at Manchester United.

The Gunners went down 3-2 at Old Trafford, while Rafael Benitez’s Toffees are also aiming to kick-start their form heading into the festive period.

Everton were thrashed 4-1 by Liverpool last week, heightening the pressure on Benitez, while director of football Marcel Brands was dismissed ahead of tonight’s game.

With West Ham’s win over Chelsea and three points for Tottenham and Manchester United last weekend, Mikel Arteta knows a win is key to reestablish their top four hopes and victory will take them to within a point of the Hammers and up to fifth. While Everton are now just five points off the drop zone, though a win will take them up to 12th.

Everton 0 – 1 Arsenal

65 mins: Kieran Tierney is being taken off by Mikel Arteta. It’s been a good return for the Arsenal left-back who assisted Odegaard’s opener, Nuno Tavares is the man to replace him.

Andre Gomes also comes on to replace Andros Townsend for Everton.

Everton 0 – 1 Arsenal

62 mins: Rafa Benitez must be bubbling over in rage at the minute. Richarlison is visibly unimpressed.

Granit Xhaka tracks back and brings Anthony Gordon down on the Everton right wing before he can swing a cross into the box. Xhaka is booked and Everton have another set piece.

Townsend floats the free kick deep into the box and fires it over everyone’s heads and out for a goal kick.

NO GOAL! Everton 0 – 1 Arsenal

59 mins: Somebody give Richarlison a hug, this one is ruled out as well! The first disallowed goal was an easy decision to make, this one is very tight. It seems as though the Brazilian is – at most- an inch ahead of Gabriel as the pass gets played and VAR rules out the Everton equaliser!

GOAL! Everton 1 – 1 Arsenal (Richarlison, 57’)⚽️

57 mins: This one should count! Allan drives through the midfield and shrugs away from two tackles. He slides the ball up to Doucoure who spins away from Partey and slides the ball into the right side of the box. Richarlison seems to time his run perfectly to get in behind and then guides a fine finish past Ramsdale’s left hand.

Everton 0 – 1 Arsenal

54 mins: That was almost a great set piece. Lacazette and Odegaard stand over the deadball before Lacazette sprints into the left side of the box and draws away three defenders. Everton go to sleep at the far post and Odegaard curls the free kick over to Gabriel. He heads the ball down into the six-yard area but Pickford is the first man onto it and comfortably smothers the ball.

Everton 0 – 1 Arsenal

51 mins: Ben Godfrey miscontrols the ball and loses it to Saka. He tries to win it back with a late challenge and stamps on Saka’s foot instead. The 20-year-old winger has taken some blows tonight. Godfrey is shown a yellow card and Arsenal swing the resultant free kick into the box. Xhaka is the target but the ball is headed out to Saka who then gets taken out by Richarlison.

Everton 0 – 1 Arsenal

48 mins: The wind has picked up to go with the rain and Ramsdale takes no chances with a cross from Gordon tapping the ball over the crossbar and trusting his defence to clear the corner ball which they do.

Second half: Everton 0 – 1 Arsenal

Kick off: Everton get the match back underway. Rafa Benitez’s team need to find a way back into this game and to earn some points or else they risk being drawn into a relegation battle.
