The Gunners dorminated the first half ball posession, with accurrate passes, interceptions, won duels and dominated the counter attacks. Arsenal opened the scoring in the 45th minute through Martin Odegaard who was assisted by Kieran Tierney to gift the visitors a 1-0 lead at half time.
The Referee Mike Dean was deemed biased by Arsenal fans after making several controversial decisions that favoured Everton. Mike Dean overlooked Godfrey stamps on Takehiro Tomiyasu face & chest in the 26th minute, where he did not issue any yellow or red card. Dean was first to notice Arsenal offsides but was linient with Everton who scored two controversial goals in the last 10 minutes through Richarlison and Gray to seal all the 3 points. Dean gave Granit Xhaka and Martin Odegaard yellow cards for minor mistakes to reduce Arsenal aggressiveness in the final third hence fans blamed him for biased decisions that costed Arsenal all the 3 points.
