Arsenal vs Everton - LIVE!

Arsenal moved five points clear at the top of the Premier League after a 4-0 win over Everton. A month on from a painful defeat at Goodison Park in Sean Dyche’s first match in charge, the Gunners got their revenge on home soil as Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli struck in a six-minute spell before half-time.

That proved enough, with a second-half charge from the Toffees, who have won just once away from home in the League this season and remain in the relegation zone, never really on the cards. Martin Odegaard made sure of the result with 20 minutes remaining before Martinelli netted his second of the night from close range, as the Gunners ran away with it late on.

It gives Mikel Arteta’s side a cushion over Manchester City at the top, and makes it three wins in a row as the Gunners have got their title charge firmly back on track after a stumbling February run.

Arsenal were always going to need something special to break down Everton and when the goal finally came the source was no surprise, writes Simon Collings.

Bukayo Saka has established himself as Arsenal’s talisman this season and his opener in this 4-0 win underlined that.

For 40 minutes, the Gunners were frustrated by an Everton side doing an excellent job of sucking the life out of Emirates Stadium.

Sean Dyche’s side basically had two banks of five in front of goalkeeper Jordan Pickford and Arsenal couldn’t find a way through. It felt like a night for patience and one where a moment of quality would be needed to break the deadlock.

Saka duly stepped up to the plate, but he owed a lot to the brilliance of Oleksandr Zinchenko. The Ukrainian has shown this season he is a left-back in name only and this was another reminder of that.

Some post-match thoughts from Arteta

22:13 , Matt Verri

“I am delighted with the win and the way we played after the first 25 minutes. We had some difficulties at the start. They are difficult to play against.

“Once we scored the first goal, the game unlocked. We needed a magic moment and Bukayo produced that. After that we grew and deserved to win the game.”

Future is bright!

Oleksandr Zinchenko 9 | Star player

A class above from the left-back, although it feels wrong to call him that. Controlled the game and created the opener with a great pass. So influential.

After a frustrating opening 40 minutes, this was the perfect night for Arsenal. Played some excellent stuff at times, with Martinelli and Saka both electric. Zinchenko incredible from left-back, so influential.

FT: Arsenal 4-0 Everton

21:39 , Matt Verri

And that’s full-time.

40 minutes of frustration for Arsenal, 50 minutes of excellence.

The Gunners clicked into gear and blew Everton away to go five points clear of Manchester City at the top. Big, big win.

21:38 , Matt Verri

90 mins: Two minutes added on. That’s what you call mercy, from the fourth official.

Smith Rowe is buzzing around trying to make an impact, been a bright cameo from him.

21:35 , Matt Verri

88 mins: Feels like Arsenal have now eased off, just controlling things with full comfort now.

Shame, it’s been a lot of fun in the last 20 minutes or so. Some stunning football played by Arsenal tonight, after what was a frustrating 40 minutes for them.

21:32 , Matt Verri

85 mins: Odegaard down the line to White, crosses it in and headed out to Vieira.

Everton just about survive! Vieira and Smith Rowe denied by some desperate defending - Arsenal continue to pile forward at every opportunity.

21:29 , Matt Verri

82 mins: Tierney and Smith Rowe on for Arsenal, Zinchenko and Saka make way.

Still at least ten minutes to go in north London - Everton praying for the final whistle already.

GOAL! Arsenal 4-0 Everton | Gabriel Martinelli 81'

21:28 , Matt Verri


Arsenal cutting Everton apart at will. Another glorious move, Nketiah involved as he plays the ball in and Martinelli is on hand for his second of the night.

21:26 , Matt Verri

79 mins: How is it not 4-0?

Nketiah looks certain to score, he’s denied from close range though. Should have done much better. Vieira then blasts over from the rebound. Arsenal want plenty more goals it would appear.

21:23 , Matt Verri

77 mins: Odegaard effort blocked, after Martinelli breaks away. Pressure is relentless.

Onana very much on ‘kick anything that moves’ watch. He’s getting increasingly frustrated in this party atmosphere.

21:22 , Matt Verri

75 mins: Pickford saves from Martinelli, Everton really struggling now. Arsenal rampant.

Crowd cheering every pass now - miserable 15 minutes coming up for Everton.

21:20 , Matt Verri

74 mins: Two Arsenal changes.

Xhaka and Trossard coming off, Vieira and Nketiah the two to come on. That Arsenal bench looking much stronger now.

Simon Collings at the Emirates

21:19 , Matt Verri

Everton’s shape has gone and so has their spirit. Arsenal could add a few more here.

GOAL! Arsenal 3-0 Everton | Martin Odegaard 71'

21:18 , Matt Verri


Arsenal will go five points clear. Trossard cuts it back into the box and Odegaard is there to fire it into the roof of the net!

21:15 , Matt Verri

68 mins: Martinelli’s shot blocked, not sure that was the best option. Wins a corner though.

Short once more, Odegaard swings the cross in and Tarkowski is there to head away. Zinchenko sees it out for a throw-in.

21:13 , Matt Verri

66 mins: Godfrey into the book, caught Trossard on the knee. Everton felt they should have had a free-kick themselves a few seconds earlier.

The defender too keen to make an impression there, came clattering in.

21:12 , Matt Verri

65 mins: Short corner from Arsenal, Odegaard back to Zinchenko and he clips it into the box.

Cleared away, Arsenal work it back in. Martinelli there at the back post as the ball comes in, who is not far away at all from getting on the end of that.

21:09 , Matt Verri

63 mins: Better spell for Everton, Ramsdale forced into a smart save to deny McNeil.

Arsenal don’t want to concede here, obviously. Would completely change the complexion of the match.

Simon Collings at the Emirates

21:07 , Matt Verri

Arsenal in control here but they are wary of complacency. Everton make a double sub and Zinchenko uses the time to shout to his team-mates and point to his head.

Godfrey and Gray on for Coleman and Maupay.

21:04 , Matt Verri

58 mins: Odegaard wide to Saka, shot with his left foot is blocked.

Rebound falls to Partey, who is urged to try his luck from about 30 yards out. Good self-restraint, opts not too.

White puts a great ball into the box, Coleman puts off Trossard who makes a mess of the volley.

21:01 , Matt Verri

55 mins: Maupay tries his luck from distance... miles over the bar.

He’s had very little service all night, but that fell for him. Gabriel didn’t deal with the long ball forward at all.

Here come the Gunners at the other end of the pitch, Mykolenko heads away to safety.

21:00 , Matt Verri

53 mins: Relatively low-key start to the half. Arsenal won’t mind that too much considering the circumstances.

Bit more control in midfield now Partey is on, Gunners not looking as vulnerable on the counter.

20:57 , Matt Verri

49 mins: Mykolenko giving Saka bear hug, ends up landing awkwardly as the Arsenal man comes down on top of him.

As expected, the Gunners looking more relaxed and patient, now they have that two-goal lead.

20:54 , Matt Verri

47 mins: Holgate has come on for Gueye, slotting into midfield. Dyche perhaps not impressed with Gueye’s role in that second goal...

Will Everton push right from the off for a way back into this game? Wouldn’t bank on it.

Back underway!

20:52 , Matt Verri

Up and running again at the Emirates - Arsenal 45 minutes away from extending their lead at the top of the Premier League table.

Partey coming on for the hosts, he’s replacing Jorginho.

Decent company!

20:49 , Matt Verri

20:45 , Matt Verri

So just three shots in that half for Arsenal. One from Jorginho in the opening minutes, and then the two goals. Ruthless from the Gunners to put themselves in charge,

They’ve had 66% possession too - got to fancy them to see this out from here now.

Simon Collings at the Emirates

20:40 , Matt Verri

Arsenal toiled for 40 minutes but lead through two quick goals. Zinchenko excellent for the first and Saka found the net with a stunning finish.

The second goal was poor from Everton as they basically stopped playing. Arsenal in control.

HT: Arsenal 2-0 Everton

20:36 , Matt Verri

And that’s half-time.

A frustrating night for Arsenal on the whole, but a flying finish to the half has them in complete control.

They’re going five points clear as it stands.


Simon Collings at the Emirates

20:34 , Matt Verri

Dyche will be livid with that goal.

Everton just stopped playing as they thought Odegaard had been fouled. School boy stuff...


20:34 , Matt Verri


Arsenal do have a 2-0 lead, Martinelli has doubled the advantage.

Everything looking much better for the Gunners now.


20:32 , Matt Verri

45 mins: Four minutes added on.

Arsenal think they’ve doubled their lead.... flag then goes up!

Gueye caught on the ball by Saka, it runs through to Martinelli who slots past Pickford. The Brazilian was inches offside though.

20:30 , Matt Verri

43 mins: Arsenal can be a bit more patient now, just controlling things without the need to push.

Trossard the latest man to go down after catching an elbow in the face. Arsenal free-kick.

Simon Collings at the Emirates

20:28 , Matt Verri

Saka once again pays homage to Thierry Henry with his celebration, standing by the corner flag and soaking up the applause.

GOAL! Arsenal 1-0 Everton | Bukayo Saka 40'

20:27 , Matt Verri


Massive moment for Arsenal, because this was getting really frustrating for them.

Zinchenko drifts over to the right wing, and slides a sensational pass through to Saka. One touch to control it on the swivel, another to move it on and a third to hammer it past Pickford at the near post.

20:25 , Matt Verri

39 mins: White wide to Saka, who hasn’t been able to get any sort of joy so far.

Arsenal work it to the opposite flank, Gabriel able to join the attack with Everton having everyone back. The visitors do a good job of staying solid though, Arsenal forced back to the halfway line.

20:22 , Matt Verri

36 mins: Nearly 70% possession for Arsenal, but they’re not really doing anything with it. A low-block causing the Gunners problems again.

Would help if they started passing to those in red, rather than blue...

Simon Collings at the Emirates

20:19 , Matt Verri

Jorginho’s passing radar has been off so far. He’s just trying to force it a bit too much and it’s breaking down.

Frustration growing as Everton dig in well.

20:19 , Matt Verri

33 mins: Onana down as he looks to beat Gabriel - not getting anything for that. Both are them unhappy with each, neither like to miss out on the choice to have an argument.

White looks to play Saka in down the line, really poor ball. Arsenal forcing it, getting frustrated.

20:17 , Matt Verri

31 mins: Arsenal’s best moments are coming in wide areas, when they get down the side of the Everton defence. Not happening enough so far.

Dyche will be thrilled with what he’s seen so far. One shot from Arsenal, that came from a corner.

20:14 , Matt Verri

28 mins: Trossard digs a cross out after getting to the byline, Coleman there to head it away. Just so many blue shirts in the way.

Crowd doing their best to lift the intesity from Arsenal - instead Everton are breaking dangerously.

Wide to Doucoure, inside to Maupay who can’t get a shot away from inside the box. Really good from Gabriel.

20:11 , Matt Verri

25 mins: Arteta called Odegaard over for a chat during that stoppage, the Gunners’ boss passing on some instructions to try and get his side going.

Fair to say Arsenal are pretty fed up of facing Dyche and Everton already.

20:09 , Matt Verri

23 mins: Arsenal’s passing hasn’t been up to scratch so far. Jorginho has already gone for a couple of ambitious balls over the top that haven’t come off.

Better ball this time out wide to Saka, whistle has gone though. Onana down with a head injury, which does not thrill the Emirates.

20:07 , Matt Verri

21 mins: Terrible pass from Zinchenko. Straight to Iwobi, Xhaka back to concede the corner. These are where Everton come alive.

Not hugely convincing from Arsenal but they clear, and Martinelli is charging away down the left. Takes too long though, Iwobi across and sees it out for a goal-kick.

Simon Collings at the Emirates

20:04 , Matt Verri

As you’d expect Everton are sitting very deep. It’s almost a back-five when they don’t have the ball, with Gueye dropping in.

Arsenal having to be patient, but it’s all a bit flat so far.

20:04 , Matt Verri

17 mins: Some brilliant football being played by Arsenal, faced with a wall of blue shirts. Final ball not there yet though - a bit ‘walking it in’ so far.

Arteta will be relatively pleased with what he’s seen though. Got to feel the chances will come soon.

20:02 , Matt Verri

15 mins: Mykolenko late on Saka, free-kick. Won’t be the last time the Arsenal man is fouled tonight.

The Gunners the better side so far, but they’ve given Everton a few chances to break. The Toffees’ midfield has the athleticism to cause real problems.

Lovely interplay between Odegaard and Saka, offside flag halts the progress though.

19:59 , Matt Verri

13 mins: Saka has had a couple of bright moments, but McNeil is doing a great job of tracking back and doubling up on him.

At the other end of the pitch, Iwobi shrugs off Zinchenko and Martinelli, but the left-back is then well-placed to intercept the pass inside.

19:57 , Matt Verri

10 mins: Another Arsenal corner, another routine. Jorginho then looks to play it into the box, headed out.

Here come Everton again on the break, Doucoure and Maupay unable to make the most of that. Arsenal looking a bit vulnerable in transition.

Simon Collings at the Emirates

19:55 , Matt Verri

Going to make an early prediction here. Jordan Pickford will get booked for time-wasting tonight. Under 10 minutes in and crowd on his back.

19:54 , Matt Verri

8 mins: Jorginho robbed by Onana, great chance for Everton to break.

McNeil has work to do as it comes wide to him, played across the face of goal and Maupay can’t beat Ramsdale with the flicked finish.

19:53 , Matt Verri

7 mins: Everton’s first bright moment in attack. Maupay given plenty of space, enough time to receive the ball and turn. Shoots from distance, comfortable enough for Ramsdale.

Arsenal goalkeeper then throws it straight to an Everton shirt - gets away with it.

19:51 , Matt Verri

5 mins: Lovely move from Arsenal, play their way out from the back and all the way wide to Saka who can have a first run with the ball. Wins a corner for the hosts.

Saka takes it short, clever move ends with Jorginho lifting an effort wide of the far post.

19:49 , Matt Verri

3 mins: McNeil’s first break forward on the left, Arteta so tight to the touchline that he almost tackles the winger. Richard Keys has just had his dinner ruined.

Everton have won two of their 30 Premier League visits to Arsenal - history not on their side.

19:47 , Matt Verri

1 mins: Aaaaaand we’re off. About ten seconds played and Gabriel has already whacked Onana with a flailing arm as they challenged in the air for the ball.

For now, Everton are pressing relatively high up the pitch. Doubt that will remain the case.


19:46 , Matt Verri

We’re up and running at the Emirates! Big night ahead.

Simon Collings at the Emirates

19:45 , Matt Verri

A few shocked local Everton reporters here that Michael Keane is in over Conor Coady.

Keane’s last Premier League start came in Everton’s 5-1 defeat against Arsenal at the Emirates last season...

Here we go...

19:42 , Matt Verri

Teams are in the tunnel at the Emirates, another brilliant atmosphere in north London as you’d expect.

Players out onto the pitch - very nearly time to get up and running.

Not long now!

19:37 , Matt Verri

Kick-off coming up in just under ten minutes.

It’s a huge night for Arsenal. A five-point lead at the top of the Premier League would give them something of a safety net, particularly with a trip to the Etihad to come.

Another slip-up though and it will feel like the momentum has been handed to Man City again.

Saliba and Gabriel a ‘happy marriage'

19:31 , Matt Verri

Mikel Arteta has no issues with Gabriel and William Saliba arguing at the end of Arsenal’s win over Leicester - because he doesn’t want his players to be robots.

Footage of the centre-backs pushing each other on the pitch at the King Power Stadium on Saturday went viral on social media after the Gunners’ 1-0 victory.

Arteta is adamant there has been no fallout between the pair and he is pleased to see that level of passion from his players.

“They are a happy marriage! They love playing with each other, but they are really demanding with each other - which is good,” said Arteta. “Everything is fine.

“I don’t want robots. I want players with feeling, with passion that makes demands of each other but at the end they have that chemistry.”


That’s one miserable record...

19:26 , Matt Verri

Tomiyasu: We have to run more

19:16 , Matt Verri

Takehiro Tomiyasu has insisted Arsenal will not be outrun tonight, after learning their lesson last month.

“We learned a lot of things, the biggest one was we ran less than them,” said Tomiyasu.

“After the game, Mikel told us we had to run extra hard, so, first of all, we have to run more than them. Then we have to compete, and we have to focus on the basics.

“That game they changed the manager and it was his first game for them, so now we know what they want to do. They like to fight, they like to run and they want to put the ball in the box a lot, so we have to defend our box. We have to prepare right and be ready for the fight, because we have to take three points.”

Arteta’s pre-match thoughts...

19:05 , Matt Verri

“There were some close calls [in the team selection]. We have a really good balance in the team. We have many options to change during the game.

“We want to be as high as possible in the table and tonight we have a really good opportunities.

“We will have to be at a really good level today to beat this team.”

Simon Collings at the Emirates

19:00 , Matt Verri

Gunners unchanged

18:53 , Matt Verri

Arsenal go with the same side that beat Leicester, as Trossard and Jorginho keep their places and Nketiah and Partey have to once again settle for spots on the bench.

Other than that it’s as expected. With Smith Rowe back in the squad now too, it’s a much stronger bench.

For Everton, one changed as Keane comes in for Coady at the back. Maupay gets the nod to lead the line over Simms.

Stand by...

18:40 , Matt Verri

We’ll have the team news from the Emirates coming up in the next few minutes.

Nketiah pushing to return to the Arsenal XI, while Partey is also in contention. Decisions for Dyche too, with Calvert-Lewin still out.

All will be revealed very shortly.

Visitors have arrived!

18:35 , Matt Verri

Arsenal must learn lessons

18:29 , Matt Verri

Against Leicester on Saturday, Leandro Trossard was deployed as a false nine and his movement caused the Foxes problems, writes Simon Collings.

He created the winner when he drifted out wide, pulling centre-back Harry Souttar out of position and creating space for Gabriel Martinelli to run into and score.

Trossard has given Arsenal a new dimension to help them cope with the absence of Gabriel Jesus, who has been out with a knee injury since the World Cup. Eddie Nketiah has been leading the line but the January arrival of Trossard has put his place under threat.

Mikel Arteta will have to rotate his side over this busy period, when Arsenal play six times in 19 days, and the selection headaches will please him. The challenge is picking the right team to break down their opponents, which has not been easy against Sean Dyche.

Dyche: This is not a free hit

18:17 , Matt Verri

One Premier League win away from home for Everton this season. One.

Big task ahead of them if they’re to double that tally tonight, but Sean Dyche has insisted his side will approach it with a positive attitude.

“I don’t look at any games as a free hit,” Dyche said. “People might not expect anything from us, but we don’t.

“Most people would suggest you don’t get a result away from home, that brings a bit more freedom.

“We’ll be going down there with our eyes on the prize thinking we can get something, that’s our intention and what we want the players to do.”


Arteta: We have options now

18:10 , Matt Verri

Mikel Arteta has told his Arsenal players that any one of them can become a hero in the title run-in, as they embark on a busy month in their bid to stay ahead of Manchester City. Tonight is the first of six games in 18 days before the March international break.

Arteta has favoured a core group of players this season, but has admitted he will be forced to rotate as the fixture list intensifies.

Asked about the potential need for anyone in the squad to step up and perform, Arteta said: “They know that and that doesn’t change throughout the whole season.

“But, obviously, when now we have the fixtures that we have in the next few weeks, they know that is going to happen. And for me, everybody looks fit and ready to play.

“The fact is we have options now — we have players coming back from injury giving us alternatives, which is going to be crucial. Players can’t maintain the same level for 10 months — it’s just impossible.”

Smith Rowe nearing comeback

18:04 , Matt Verri

Emile Smith Rowe made his return to action on Monday night as he started for the Arsenal Under-21s against Chelsea.

It’s been an incredibly frustrating season for the 22-year-old, who has had just 63 minutes of first-team action and is yet to make a start for Mikel Arteta’s side this campaign.

Groin surgery in September kept Smith Rowe out until January, when he made his return off the bench in the FA Cup against Oxford. A thigh injury has kept him out for another six weeks though, with Leandro Trossard providing the only real depth in forward options.

However, Smith Rowe started for the U21 side against Chelsea, coming off at half-time as the Gunners went on to lose the match 1-0.

Jakub Kiwior also started for the Gunners at Kingsmeadow, with the January signing looking to make an impression. The 23-year-old arrived for a fee in the region of £20million last month, but is still waiting to make his Arsenal debut.

Look away, Arsenal fans...

17:56 , Matt Verri

Won’t keep bringing this up, promise.

But Everton were full of aggression and intensity against the Gunners at Goodison, with James Tarkowski’s goal enough for three points. Have a flick through some highlights from the game below.

Got to think Arsenal will be in a much better place to deal with what’s thrown at them tonight.

Revenge on the mind for Odegaard

17:48 , Matt Verri

Martin Odegaard has urged Arsenal to put things right tonight and get the better of Everton.

The Gunners came up short in Sean Dyche’s first match in charge of the Toffees a month ago, but are strong favourites to come out on top on home soil here.

“It’s less than a month since we last played Everton and what we learned from that game is that every single team in this league is difficult to play against,” Odegaard writes in his captain’s notes.

“They played really well against us in that game, defended very deep and when they attacked our box they put crosses in as soon as possible. They are a very direct team so we have to expect a lot of the same things tonight.

“We also learned that we have to be at our very best in each game we play, and the last time we faced them we weren’t, so it’s up to us to put that right this evening.”


Standard Sport prediction

17:42 , Matt Verri

This is a huge opportunity for Arsenal to create a bit of breathing space from City’s chase in a fierce title battle.

Everton will likely come to the Emirates and sit in, hoping to frustrate and earn a valuable point on the road that would lift them back out of the bottom three, with their inexplicable failure to sign a striker in January haunting them again versus Villa.

But Arsenal showed the sort of patience that will be crucial to breaking down such teams in the run-in during their narrow win at Leicester and know what it takes to persevere and gain revenge for that loss at Goodison.

It won’t be easy or likely pretty, but the Gunners have more than enough to prevail and open that gap to City to five points.

Arsenal to win, 2-0.

Everton team news

17:36 , Matt Verri

Everton remain without winger Andros Townsend, and Dyche has confirmed striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin will not be fit to face Arsenal after a hamstring injury. He last played in the Goodison Park win over the Gunners a month ago.

Scottish full-back Nathan Patterson has also been delayed in his return from knee trouble, though James Garner is closing in on a comeback in midfield.

Arsenal team news

17:30 , Matt Verri

Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey is tonight pushing to start for the Gunners.

Partey has been out injured with a thigh injury although he made his comeback against Leicester on Saturday. The Ghanaian played the final six minutes of the 1-0 win and is hoping to get more minutes going forward.

“He hasn’t trained much,” said Mikel Arteta. “He had a session and he will train [on Tuesday]. It is what it is. He was out for a few weeks and he needs to get back into the rhythm.”

Arsenal are in action twice this week as they also host Bournemouth on Saturday. Arteta is, as a result, likely to make changes to his side over the next two games, with the full-backs one area that could be rotated.

Eddie Nketiah is also hoping to get back in the starting XI after being dropped for the win at Leicester.

Predicted Arsenal XI (4-3-3): Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Odegaard, Jorginho, Xhaka; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.
