Emery hails Cech as Arsenal keeper frustrates Everton

Emery hails Cech as Arsenal keeper frustrates Everton

The Gunners are at home to Marco Silva's side for another Premier League on Sunday and Emery can only "hope" his Uruguayan star will be match fit.

Ramsey offered a clean, simple assist to Lacazette after Torreira's innovative interception and the Frenchman curled in an absolutely lovely shot in the top corner past a flailing Jordan Pickford.

Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang celebrates scoring their second goal with Nacho Monreal. The Premier League is the first priority for us, that gives us the biggest credibility.

Everton looked the more likely to score the game's opener, but the hosts snatched a lead slightly against the run of play and built on their advantage to climb into sixth place in the standings. We created three, four, five clear chances to score. Was it the right move for his career?

Everton were the more threatening side during the first half at Emirates Stadium, but a quickfire double from Arsenal's attackers secured a fourth straight Premier League win.

While it is important to keep your discipline in the maelstrom of a tough top-flight encounter seasoned observers were relishing the new-found midfield aggression.

And with a decent looking set of league fixtures to come - Watford, Fulham, Leicester, and Crystal Palace follow Everton this afternoon - those who had written off the north Londoners as genuine challengers may be forced to revise the predictions of gloom.

Arrest made in stabbing death of recently engaged DC runner
Crawford was arrested Wednesday night and charged with first-degree murder while armed in connection with the stabbing. Crawford was arrested Wednesday night after he was found at a park by officers, who then took him in for questioning.

While the Greek defender has impressed in recent weeks with his excellent anticipation it was nice to see the former Bolton defender return to the side after a good run-out against the Ukrainians three days previously.

The second half saw both squads unchanged - despite Walcott emerging with a swollen eye.

Moments after Aubameyang should have won a penalty after Jonjoe Kenny reacted to a header coming towards him by lifting his arm.

French striker Lacazette broke the deadlock just short of the hour mark for the Gunners. I make mistakes, my players, as well.

Gabon global Aubameyang doubled the lead two minutes later from what appeared to be an offside position, sending Pickford the wrong way from close range.

Danny Welbeck replaced Ramsey before Digne hit the angle of post and bar for Everton as their last chance of getting back into the game came and went. Surely the club can't afford another drawn-out contract saga, with the message from many being "sign that contract or leave".
