Arsenal 4, Everton 0: Three points for the ‘Gunners’ to slide down the table

A defeat to Everton a month ago looked set to lead to Arsenal’s collapse, a setback seen as the fall from grace of Mikel Arteta’s men, who were finally vulnerable. A defeat for which the ‘Gunners’ are avenging themselves this Wednesday, with goals from Bukayo Saka, Gabriel Martinelli -twice- and Martin Odegaard, to maintain the five-point lead over Manchester City (4-0).

Arsenal have no more games in progress. The rent is what it is. From this Wednesday, the fight with Pep Guardiola’s men is side by side and with an interesting mattress; but far from definitive.

The three points earned at the Emirates serve to move City down the table, but not to leave them behind. With thirteen match days to play, this Premier League still has a lot of margin to clear.

The Everton test was important for Arteta’s men because of what happened a month ago at Goodison Park, when Sean Dyche’s debut saw a James Tarkowski header usher in a three-match winless spell for Arsenal.

After an impeccable competition, the ‘Schutter’ box collapsed and his arm seemed to bend against the little merciful City.

It was time on Wednesday to show that this was a setback and he did so hand in hand with the authority of Saka, the player in the league if Arsenal finish with the title.

The England winger infiltrated the area, saw himself alone and was also spotted by Zinchenko, who leaked a pass despite the passivity of the Everton defense, who are in position because of this kind of action. Saka turned and jabbed the ball into the nearest post box. World figure target.

And if Everton were a drama in defence, Idrissa Gana Gueye confirmed it with a first-half nap discount. He fell asleep, Saka stole the ball from him and Martinelli, heads-up alone, beat Pickford.

The goal was disallowed due to suspected offside by the Brazilian, but VAR changed the decision and Arsenal went off with a very comfortable 2-0 lead at half-time.

Everton don’t have the gunpowder to lift a rash like this. Dyche’s notebook goes the other way and his team continued to drag, so that Leandro Trossard counter-attacked the third served to Odegaard, who scored nine goals and made six assists in this Premier, confirming the best season of his sports race .

With Everton on the canvas, Zinchenko paired with Eddie Nketiah and Martinelli in front of goal completed his double and breathed new courage into the Emirates, who see the days pass and remain leaders.

“We are the first, we are the first!” cried the Arsenal stadium, who go to sleep five points above City and aim to hold them for the thirteen days remaining.

Everton, on the verge of drama, are falling behind, in twenty-eighth place, one point behind Leeds United.
