Everton entertained Arsenal at Goodison Park earlier today as they hoped to earn maximum points at home in the Premier League. The Toffees made a good start to the game and managed to get to the half-time break with a goalless scoreline.

James Tarkowski finally opened the goal-scoring in the 60th minute which proved to be the only goal of the game as Sean Dyche’s men ended up earning a hard-fought 1-0 win in front of their home supporters.

Let’s take a look at how each Everton player fared during the match against the Gunners.

GK: Jordan Pickford – 7/10

The English keeper made a few crucial saves at the back and earned a well-deserved clean sheet at Goodison Park.

RB: Seamus Coleman – 7.5/10

He gave a good account of himself on the defensive end of the pitch and had a couple of bright moments in the opponent’s half.

CB: Conor Coady – 7/10

Coady made a couple of important defensive contributions and did enough to keep the opposition attackers at bay.

CB: James Tarkowski – 8/10

The English talent earned the ball back twice and cleared the danger when required. He scored the only goal of the game at the hour mark.
