It was a hard evening for Mikel Arterta’s men who had to wait until the 69th minute to get their only goal of the game against a resolute Everton side on the road.
29-year-old Belgian winger, Leandro Trossard’s second-half strike became the only difference between both sides as Everton’s defence refused to make way for long durations in the game.
Everton was toothless for most of the match, except for a few flashes of dangerous counter-attacking moves that rarely end up in David Raya’s hands.
This win keeps Arsenal in the fourth position tied at points with Tottenham, and Liverpool with 13 points, only on goal difference.
Everton on the other hand sits at the other end of the table at 18th position, with one point in five games.
