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.


Everton 0 - 1 Arsenal

75 mins: Martin Odegaard has been shown a yellow card for delaying a free kick and winding up the Everton players. They are seriously losing their cool over Arsenal’s time-wasting tactics.

15 minutes to play is this one and things are getting pretty heated out there.

Everton 0 - 1 Arsenal

72 mins: Pickford gets the match back underway and boots the ball up to Doucoure. He runs it into the right side of the box and is met by Gabriel.

The two players tug and pull at each other with the Arsenal defender coming off worse. He drops to the ground in feigned injury and the Everton fans go ape.

Doucoure himself is incensed and has a few words with the referee.

Everton 0 - 1 Arsenal

70 mins: Gabriel Martinelli has gone down with cramp and he’s being booed by the Everton fans who think he’s trying to waste time. Mikel Arteta has called over a bunch of the Arsenal players and is giving them heated instructions as the physio comes on the see to Martinelli.

This delay has taken a while but eventually Gabriel Martinelli is subbed off for Eddie Nketiah.

67 mins: Everton are pushing for the equaliser again. They win a corner and Gray curls it into the box this time. Michael Keane wins the header from the initial ball and picks out Gordon, he brings the ball down and looks to shoot but the flag goes up for offside.

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.
