The veteran Senegal international was caught dawdling on the ball near his own area by the England youngster, allowing Gabriel Martinelli to secure the points in first-half stoppage time. This occurred while the Toffees were still reeling from having conceded the opener to Bukayo Saka despite arguably being on top for forty minutes at the Emirates. The Toffees were on top at the time.
Ashton, a talkSPORT pundit, was shocked that such a terrible mistake had been made in the Premier League. The error brought an end to the game as a contest, with the score remaining at 4-0 after Sean Dyche replaced the 33-year-old player at the halftime break.
Ashton stated the following live on the talkSPORT match commentary for the game on March 1 at 8.32 p.m.: Idrissa Gana Gueye's sluggish play was just awful. He was caught by Saka.
Jim Proudfoot stated as the goal was awarded by the VAR commentator: Idrissa Gana Gueye is bursting with pride. Yes, it will be accounted for; the score is 2-0... Gueye does not know where to look. That is a 24-carat error for a player with his level of experience.
Ashton continued, Sorry, but at this level of football, it is unacceptable to lose to a team that plays fantastic football, like the first goal. Like Idrissa Gana Gueye has done there, you can't turn off.
"It is a huge, huge mistake. Arsenal cannot score a goal like that when you're fighting for your life down there."
