Arsenal also allowed Everton too much dominance during the second half, with some of their players being accused of wasting time on the pitch.
For Instance, Arsenal youngster Bukayo Saka did not enjoy too much protection from Dean, despite being the most fouled player on the night.
Everton players took turns to foul Saka who looked like he had been targeted with very few of them receiving yellow cards.
Mike Deen also failed to notice when Arsenal right back Takehiro Tomiyasu, was stepped, on the face by an Arsenal defender.
The incident occurred when the ball was not being played.
However, despite it going to VAR, no card was issued on the Everton player who clearly meant no harm.
In truth, Everton got to see two of their goals ruled out by marginal offside decisions.
Hence, they had more reasons to feel angered by the referee. Here are some reactions by Arsenal fans to the referee's decision making.
