Arsenal 2-0 Everton: Scratchy Gunners record fourth successive league win [Tweets]

Arsenal had to work hard to continue their winning run as they beat Everton 2-0 at the Emirates, courtesy goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

Everton created the more meaningful chances in the first half, even though Arsenal dominated the possession. The Gunners though, had Petr Cech to thank for keeping them in the game. Post the interval, however, Arsenal took control of the match, with chances starting to come in a bit more consistently.

One such opportunity would end up breaking the deadlock, as Alexandre Lacazette scored a beautiful curler that Jordan Pickford had no answer for. Soon after, Unai Emery’s men doubled their advantage as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored a close-range effort, although it should have been pulled back for offside.

The final half-hour saw Arsenal retain control of the game, even though they didn’t add to their lead. And, Arsenal fans hailed the contributions of Lacazette and Aubameyang, with the strike duo starting to come into their own.

Fans also hailed Lucas Torreira’s performance as the Uruguayan midfielder made his first league start of the season for Arsenal.

But, the hero of the match was Petr Cech, who played a huge role in Arsenal’s win by making a number of crucial saves.
