Arteta frustrated after Utd defeat

Demarai Gray smashed home a long-range strike in the second minute of stoppage time to earn Everton a 2-1 victory over Arsenal and end the team’s eight-match winless run in the English Premier League on Monday. The winger cut in from the left and took aim with a fierce shot that flew in off the inside of the post, completing Everton‘s comeback after Richarlison’s equalizer in the 79th. It sparked scenes of jubilation at Goodison Park on a night there was a small protest by home fans inside the stadium at the board’s running of the club. It looked like Martin Odegaard’s volley in the second minute of first-half injury time was going to win the game for Arsenal, which was looking to climb back into fifth place with a victory. The visitors rode their luck, with Richarlison having two goals — a header in the 43rd and a low finish in the 57th — ruled out by video review because of marginal offside decisions. The Brazil forward kept plugging away and got his reward when he headed home a rebound after another powerful shot from Gray was tipped onto the crossbar by goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale. It was Everton‘s first win since Sept. 25 and moved the team eight points clear of the relegation zone. In the 27th minute of the game, a section of Everton fans left their seats to signal their unhappiness at the board amid the club’s 27th season without a trophy Some of the fans were seen making their way toward the exits inside Goodison as play continued.

90+6 mins: Chance! An Everton clearance sends Richarlison one-on-one with Ben White and he holds the ball up long enough for Alex Iwobi to drive into the box. Richarlison feeds him a pass and Iwobi gets charged down by Ramsdale. He gets a shot off by the Arsenal goalkeeper manages to keep it out!

Everton 2 - 1 Arsenal

90+4 mins: The Everton fans are in full voice now. It’s a sickening goal for Arsenal to concede, Aaron Ramsdale could do nothing about it at all and it’s going to mean the Gunners have lost their last three away games in a row.

GOAL! Everton 2 - 1 Arsenal (Gray, 90+2’)⚽️

90+2 mins: TURNAROUND! What a beauty of a goal this one is. Andre Gomes sparks Everton into life again with a driving run up the midfield before slotting it out to Demarai Gray on the left wing. He brings the ball inside, checks away from one defender, then another and finally blasts a rocket into the far top corner! Everton have the lead with four minutes to play!

Everton 1 - 1 Arsenal

90 mins: There’s going to be six minutes added on, plenty of time for a winning goal.

Chance! Odegaard is played into the Everton box and he decides not to shoot first time, instead he cuts back onto his left-foot before taking the shot giving Coleman enough time to jump in front of the ball and make the block!

Everton 1 - 1 Arsenal

86 mins: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is one for Arsenal who have had all of the ball since Richarlison scored. Saka has a shot deflected by Keane and the rebound loops up nicely for Pickford to claim.

Aubameyang then fouls Holgate and Everton make a change. Alex Iwobi comes on against his former club taking the place of Anthony Gordon.

Everton 1 - 1 Arsenal

83 mins: If ever someone deserved a goal it was Richarlison in this game. Two goals chalked off by VAR and now he’s got the equaliser with 10 minutes to go.

Off the post! Arsenal’s time-wasting tactics have been put on the back-burner as they fly up the pitch in an attempt to get back in front. Saka chips a pass in from the right wing and picks out Eddie Nketiah. He has a free chance to head the ball into the net but fires it into the near post! How’s his missed?

GOAL! Everton 1 - 1 Arsenal (Richarlison, 80’)⚽️

80 mins: Surely, this is the equaliser! Andre Gomes drives the ball towards the box and lays it off to Demarai Gray. He cuts inside and rolls the ball onto his right foot before firing a decent shot at goal. Ramsdale is beaten but the ball rattles into the crossbar and bounces back into play. Richarlison has kept himself onside this time and gets to the ball first, looping a headed effort over the sprawling Ramsdale and landing the ball in the back of the net!

Everton 0 - 1 Arsenal

78 mins: Anthony Gordon leaves a bit too much on Nuno Tavares as the Arsenal left-back looks to clear his lines. The ball is kicked out for an Arsenal throw in but they give the ball away to Gray when it’s sent back into play.

Everton work it quickly out to Gordon on the right wing and he swings an early cross into the box that gets claimed by Ramsdale.
