Lacazette, Aubameyang help Arsenal edge past Everton

WATCH Aubameyang finishes off slick Arsenal counter

Posted: Sep. 23, 2018 8:00 am Updated: Sep.

In the 12th minute, Nacho Monreal found his way inside the 18-yard area before bringing the best out of Everton goalkeeper Jordan Pickford.

The official club website has confirmed that star Richarlison will be back in contention after suspension, with the Brazil worldwide surely set to come straight back into the starting XI.

The Frenchman looked like he was falling asleep on the bench during Arsenal's 4-2 win over FC Vorskla in the Europa League on Thursday, but he was full of energy in the final third on Sunday as he guided Arsenal to a deserved win.

Some pundits had questioned whether Cech could adapt to Emery's style of playing out from the back, but the Arsenal coach has no doubts. "He has a big experience, he has big quality. For me, the Europa League is very important". "Today he shows us he is doing very well and continuing with this work and spirit every day".

However, his form is usually inconsistent and according to many, he has failed to mature his game. Before that, it was his shot-stopping that really saved Arsenal.

But, having escaped without punishment for their tepid first half, Arsenal seized the lead in the 56th minute.

Arsenal had nearly two-thirds of possession during the first half but his team did very little with it, while they looked wide open at the back every time Everton attacked.

Before Everton had a chance to respond it was 2-0 and game over, Aubameyang slamming home - albeit from an offside position - after Ramsey flicked on an under-hit Mesut Ozil pass.

Emery said he had been about to make a substitution just before the first goal and, when asked whether he would have taken Lacazette off, said: "Maybe, yeah".

"I think Blues boss Marco Silva would take a point now although the Gunners have not drawn any of their last 21 Premier League games (W11 L10). Assistant referees can make them".

"The result didn't reflect what both teams played during the match". He looked sharper, stronger and much more mature in the Chelsea game in the Premier League this season.

The Gunners were also indebted to goalkeeper Petr Cech, who enjoyed his first clean sheet of the season.

Unai Emery's squad rotation saw the likes of Torreira, Bernd Leno and Rob Holding starting for the first time in the season while youngster Emile Smith Rowe made his first appearance for the first team as he came on in the 70th minute.
