Premier League Football Results – Everton Beat Arsenal 2-1 at Home
In truth, until a flurry of activity before the interval, the first half had little of any note to report.
There was, of course, one incident that saw Ben Godfrey’s boot end up in Takehiro Tomiyasu’s face. VAR reviewed the challenge, but decided to not take action against the Everton man.
Arsenal put up a passive display and Everton punished them for it when Richarlison headed in for the hosts. His header came in the 43rd minute but in vain because VAR ruled it to be offside.
The guests took full advantage of this close miss when Kieran Tierney whipped a fine delivery in from the left. Tierney, back in the team for the first time since October 18, passed to Odegaard, who volleyed in Arsenal’s opener just seconds before the whistle.
After the restart, Arsenal were lucky again because Richarlison, who thought he had equalised, scored after being offside again.
Only moments later, Odegaard played in Gabriel Martinelli, who went round Jordan Pickford. But Martinelli was then aiming from a wide position and his cross shot only hit the top of the net.
The game became fragmented as the clock wound down, much to the frustration of the home crowd.
But eventually the hosts equalised as Gray’s curler hit the bar, and Richarlison finally headed it in on the rebound.
Arsenal then came very close to regaining their lead. Bukayo Saka stood an inviting cross up to the back post to the onrushing Eddie Nketiah. But the striker hit the post from close range.
Odegaard created a half chance as the game entered injury time, but Everton blocked his shot inside the area.
Finally, right at the death the hosts nicked the game 2-1 as Gray fired the ball in from 20 yards.
