Arsenal secured a 1-0 win against Everton on Sunday.
Arsenal have had a dreadful recent run of form at Goodison Park. Today’s victory marked the Gunners’ first on the road against Everton in the Premier League since 2017.
Mikel Arteta’s side were dominant throughout on Sunday, but were made to be patient as Everton defended diligently. They will also consider themselves unlucky to have seen Gabriel Martinelli’s first half strike chalked off for offside following a VAR review.
However, Leandro Trossard provided the breakthrough in the second half, as his first time effort following a short corner routine crashed in off the post.
Everton couldn’t muster a threat to get back into the game, and Arsenal will be delighted to take all three points back to the Emirates Stadium.
After the final whistle, plenty of Arsenal fans took to Twitter to celebrate the result.

Arsenal fans have their say
One fan described the performance as “Arteta’s masterclass.” Another noted that the Gunners displayed “complete domination”. Another exclaimed, “that’s a clutch victory for The Arsenal! Keep up the winning streak and make those goals count!”
Other fans celebrated finally securing a Premier League win at Goodison Park, with one saying “curse finally broken.”
Arsenal fans are also looking to the future on the back of this victory. One stated, “a big win for Arsenal. We can dream now.”
However, other supporters felt that this was a far from perfect performance, and that improvements will be needed against tougher opponents. One fan said, “if this is [thr] kind of football we are going to play in [the] champions league we are in big trouble.”
Plenty of praise was also reserved for Trossard. The Belgian attacker produced a fine display having been introduced from the bench in the first half, following the injury sustained by Gabriel Martinelli.
A fan said, “Leo I love you.” Another asked, “should Trossard start every game??”
Trossard impressing is encouraging for Arteta, especially if Martinelli is set for a spell on the sidelines.
Squad rotation will be key for the Gunners in the coming week, with a Champions League clash against PSV Eindhoven on Wednesday, before the first north London derby of the Premier League season on Sunday, when Tottenham Hotspur are set to visit the Emirates Stadium.
