Demarai Gray stuns the gunners as Mikel Arteta’s side flops

Arsenal who were leading at some point let their lead slip as Everton produced a stirring comeback to beat them with second half goals from Richarlison and Demarai Gray.

It was looking like another night of frustration for the Toffees as Richarlison had two goals ruled out by VAR for offside.
But Richarlison was not to be denied a third time when he headed home before Demarai Gray fired a rocket of a strike in stoppage time for a deserved win.

By contrast, it was another bad night for Arsenal’s chances of returning to the Champions League next season as they suffered a third consecutive away defeat to remain four points off the top four & allowing the likes
of Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur close down on them.

The Game came to life when Richarllison headed home from an Andros Townsend’s free-kick, but he was adjudged to be offside. Moments later, Arsenal took a half-time lead as Kieran Tierney’s cross perfectly picked out Odegaard to steer into the bottom corner.

Everton’s players came flying out the traps early in the second half and thought they had levelled when Richarlison smashed home at the near post from Abdoulaye Doucoure’s pass. However, again he was denied by VAR.

Although, Everton were lucky not to have been reduced to 10 men midway into the first half when Ben Godfrey’s stamp onto the face of Takehiro Tomiyasu went unpunished by the Referee and VAR.

As expected and hoped by Everton’s fans, he was third time lucky when he sent a looping header over Aaron Ramsdale after Gray’s shot rattled the Arsenal crossbar.

Then two minutes into stoppage time, Gray produced the match winner as he charged towards goal and unleashed an unstoppable drive in off the post.

Aubameyang who was brought in to salvage a point had a chance to do so but his wayward finish with just Jordan Pickford to beat with the last kick of the game showed why Arteta felt he could not trust the Gabon international from the start.

The scenes at the final whistle were a complete turnaround from last Wednesday, when the mood turned ugly after a 4-1 defeat by their city rivals. Victory lifts Everton to 12th in the table, eight points above the relegation zone.
