Everton faced off against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium earlier tonight as they hoped to earn a good result on the road in the Premier League. The Toffees made a solid start to the game but conceded the opening goal in the 40th minute when Bukayo Saka scored with a great strike. Gabriel Martinelli doubled Arsenal’s advantage in the first half injury-time as Everton went into the half-time break 2-0 down on the scoreline.
Martin Odegaard killed the game off when he scored in the 71st minute before Martinelli scored again just nine minutes later. Sean Dyche’s men ended up suffering a poor 4-0 loss away from home.
