Trossard goal seals Arsenal win at Everton

Arsenal secured their first Premier League win at Everton in six years with a 1-0 victory at Goodison Park on Sunday. Leandro Trossard’s goal in the second half proved to be the difference. Despite frustrating the visitors and having a Gabriel Martinelli goal disallowed by VAR in the first half, Everton couldn’t prevent Arsenal from dominating the match. The win puts Arsenal on 13 points, level with Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool, and two points behind leaders Manchester City. Everton, on the other hand, are struggling with just one point from five games and sit third from bottom. Arsenal now face a crucial week with their Champions League return and the north London derby against Tottenham Hotspur. Everton had hoped that Arsenal would be distracted by these upcoming fixtures, but they were unable to match Arsenal’s performance. The Merseyside club showed little quality and are in danger of being relegation strugglers this season. While Sean Dyche is unlikely to face the same fate as Ronald Koeman did in 2017, he faces a significant challenge. Dyche acknowledged that his team defended well but lacked quality in possession. Arsenal surprised everyone by starting David Raya in goal instead of Aaron Ramsdale. However, Raya had a quiet game as most of the action took place at the other end of the pitch. Everton had a lucky escape when Martinelli scored a goal reminiscent of Thierry Henry, but VAR ruled it out for offside. Martinelli was then forced off the pitch due to a muscle injury and was replaced by Trossard. Despite Arsenal’s possession, they struggled to break down Everton’s defense until a short-corner routine led to Trossard’s goal. After that, Arsenal comfortably saw out the game to end their poor record at Goodison Park. Arteta praised his team’s performance, highlighting their defensive solidity and numerous chances created. The only downside for Arsenal was Martinelli’s injury, and Arteta hopes it’s not a serious issue.
