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

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.

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.

Everton 0 - 1 Arsenal

Arsenal had just two touches in the Everton box and one of them led to the first goal. Arsenal haven’t been great, they’ve been sluggish and devoid of intent.

However, they created the best chance of the game with a lovely move down the left wing and have a one-goal advantage at the break. Can Everton respond after half-time?

Half-time: Everton 0 - 1 Arsenal

45+3 mins: A killer blow for Everton gets delivered right on the stroke of half-time. A lacklustre first half kicked into life in the closing minutes as Richarlison saw his opening goal ruled out for offside before Martin Odegaard found the back of the net at the other end of the pitch. Arsenal lead 1-0.

GOAL! Everton 0 - 1 Arsenal (Odegaard, 45+2’)⚽️

45+2 mins: Oh wow! Right on the stroke of half-time, just after Everton have a goal disallowed Martin Odegaard gives Arsenal the lead! The ball comes up to Lacazette who slides a pass out to Tierney bombing up the left wing. He crosses the ball into the box where Odegaard meets it on the volley and guides his effort into the near bottom corner!

NO GOAL! Everton 0 - 0 Arsenal

45 mins: It’s chalked off! Richarlison looks sick as the result of the VAR check comes on the big screen. He looked offside on the initial replays and when the lines were drawn the decision was an easy one.

Two minutes of added time to play in the first half.

GOAL! Everton 1 - 0 Arsenal (Richarlison, 44’)⚽️

44 mins: The deadlock is broken! Andros Townsend swings a free kick into the box and Richarlison meets it with a glorious header to the top right corner. He goes sprinting off in celebration but VAR are having a look for a potential offside...
