The Gunners took a long time to get going but credit Everton for that. The visitor came with a clear game plan to defend and make life difficult for their host.

Everton looked threatening on the break too, but ultimately failed to fashion any real clear-cut chances.

Arsenal eased the nerves of their fans as well as the players on 40 minutes when Oleksandr Zinchenko slipped in Bukayo Saka. The young English winger hammered in the opener from a tight angle.

Controversial VAR decisions have started to favour Arsenal since the high profile mistake at home to Brentford. One in which the manager publicly criticised to cleverly persuade officials to ‘owe them the next one which could go either way.

They got another beneficial call just on half time when a close offside went their way.

Gueye dallied on the ball in a dangerous area, allowing Saka to win possession which immediately saw a big chance at goal.

Saka slipped in Gabriel Martinelli who scored but then the linesman flagged for offside. Stockley Park reversed the decision and awarded the goal, all but securing the home side and ending Everton’s challenge.

Leandro Trossard had a hand in Arsenal’s third goal. His surging run and incisive pass found Martin Ødegaard who finished well.

Nketiah had a point to prove as a second half sub. He  was introduced and made an instant impact, breaking free on the left to cross for Martinelli, who poked in his second for 4-0.
