Premier League: The key to Arsenal’s long-suffering win over Everton

Everton welcomed Arsenal to Goodison Park for a Premier League matchday five clash hoping to take points from Mikel Arteta’s side, who arrived with three wins and two draws.

The game ended 1-0 in favor of Arsenal, who suffered but in the end got three very important points for the coming season and their return to the UEFA Champions League.

The key to Arsenal’s victory against Everton

Surprising starting changes

Surprisingly, Mikel Arteta made the decision to start David Raya, the Spanish goalkeeper, leaving Ramsdale on the bench, who has been the permanent owner of the Gunner goal so far.

At the same time, after a series of criticisms following his bittersweet start to the season, Kai Havertz was sent to the bench and replaced by Fábio Vieira, a 23-year-old Portuguese midfielder.

The VAR stopped Arsenal

In the 19th minute, Fábio Vieira sent a great filtered pass to Gabriel Martinelli, who had scored his first goal of the season. However, the VAR decided to review the play and canceled the goal for offside.

The Brazilian footballer had to leave immediately due to injury.

Bad and bad for Arteta

Although Martinelli managed to break the score with a good finish against Pickford in a tight game, a few minutes later and after the VAR review the score was declared invalid for offside.

Minutes later, the Brazilian attacker had to be substituted due to injury and Leandro Trossard only took his place in the 24th minute.

Common goal!

Leandro Trossard, who came on as a substitute for Martinelli, was responsible for breaking the deadlock after a great team game. From a corner kick, Odegaard set up Saka, who passed the ball to the Belgian and sent it into Pickford’s goal. Collective goal from Arsenal.

The victory suffered

Although they managed to take the win and three points from Goodison Park, the game cost them dearly as Everton were able to establish themselves well in the defensive zone and the winning goal had to come after a great joint goal between two teams came together. Of those who know best how to caress the ball: Odegaard and Saka, later Trossard defined well against Pickford and sealed the victory.

Arsenal are currently unbeaten in the current Premier League season.
