Arsenal vs Everton LIVE score: Premier League result and reaction as Gabriel Martinelli adds fourth goal

Arsenal’s young guns were once again firing on all cylinders as Bukayo Saka’s strike and Gabriel Martinelli’s brace helped down Everton to send Mikel Arteta’s side five points clear at the Premier League summit.

No other players under the age of 22 have scored more than five Premier League goals this season but both Saka and Martinelli reached double-figures with first-half strikes in a comfortable 4-0 victory.

Captain Martin Odegaard added a third before Martinelli tapped in to put the gloss on the win and leave Arsenal in a strong position as they pursue a first title in 19 years.

This was Arsenal’s game in hand, the original match called off following the death of the Queen, and they went into the contest having lost to the struggling Toffees last month. That was Sean Dyche’s first game in charge of Everton and things appeared to be on the up, but this loss leaves the visitors inside the relegation zone.

21:41 , Michael Jones

90+2 mins: There it is. Arsenal have hammered Everton at the Emirates Stadium and move five points clear at the top of the Premier League table.

They’ve won their game in hand on Manchester City and have kept destiny in their own hands. If they win every league match until the end of the season the title is theirs.

That’s not an easy task but it’ll be one Mikel Arteta’s men will believe is possible.

21:39 , Michael Jones

90 mins: The Gunners are cruising to victory at the Emirates Stadium. Everton are done, it’s been a poor night for them. After the first goal went in they’ve fallen apart and looked almost resigned to the fact that they wouldn’t be scoring against Arsenal.

86 mins: Martin Odegaard has scored nine league goals for the first time in a season. His best tally before was eight for Vitesse in the Dutch league in 2018/19.

48 mins: How to Everton approach this second half? They need to get two or more goals to come away from this game with points, that’s a tough ask for a team who have been underperforming in that area.

Will Sean Dyche prefer instead to limit the damage and try to nick a goal from somewhere to keep the game alive?

Second half: Arsenal 2-0 Everton

20:53 , Michael Jones

Thomas Partey has been introduced by Mikel Arteta to replace Jorginho.

With Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli on the scoresheet, this is only the fourth time a team has had multiple players aged 21 or under reach 10 Premier League goals in the same season.

The others were Leeds in 1999/00 (Michael Bridges and Harry Kewell), Manchester United in 2006/07 (Cristiano Ronaldo and Wayne Rooney) and Arsenal last season (Saka and Emile Smith Rowe).

Arsenal have named an unchanged XI for the 12th time in the Premier League this season, equalling their most games without a change in a single season in the competition (12 in 1996-97).

It seems to be working for Mikel Arteta’s men.

Half-time: Arsenal 2-0 Everton

20:37 , Michael Jones

45+4 mins: Everton have been their own undoing in that half. For 40 minutes Arsenal looked bereft of creativity in the face of a resolute defence but a couple of mistakes - both pounced on by Bukayo Saka - has given the Gunners a very comfortable lead.

The assistant referee raises the offside flag immediately but VAR is going to check it.

Arsenal 1-0 Everton

20:30 , Michael Jones

43 mins: That’s an important goal for the Gunners. Up to this point they hadn’t looked very threatening but now Everton are going to have to adapt their own gameplan to get a goal of their own.

As it stands Arsenal are moving five points clear.

Martin Odegaard and Seamus Coleman lead out their respective teams. Arsenal will move five points clear of Manchester City if they defeat Everton tonight.

The Toffees were triumphant when they met the Gunners at Goodison Park, can they repeat that result at the Emirates too?

Sean Dyche lost his first nine Premier League games as a manager against Arsenal but has been beaten in only one of his last six against them (W2, D3).

Dyche’s teams have never scored more than once in his 15 meetings with the Gunners, netting just seven in total.

Gabriel Martinelli is vying to score in three consecutive Premier League appearances within a single season for the first time.

Martinelli is one shy of 10 Premier League goals, and could become the third Brazilian to reach double figures in a single campaign while aged 21 or under, emulating Gabriel Jesus in 2017/18 and Richarlison in 2018/19.


Mikel Arteta empathises with Graham Potter amid current struggles

19:32 , Michael Jones

Mikel Arteta says he empathises with Graham Potter as he battles to save his job at Stamford Bridge – warning the Chelsea head coach not to let negativity “destroy his life”.

The Blues sit 10th in the Premier League after losing to Tottenham on Sunday and are now 26 points adrift of Arteta’s table-topping Arsenal.

Potter has won just nine of the 26 games he has managed across all competitions since replacing Thomas Tuchel in September. The former Brighton boss revealed ahead of the Spurs defeat that he and his children has received death threats.

Everton’s 2-1 victory at Southampton is their only win in their previous 13 Premier League away fixtures (five draws, seven defeats).

They have netted just once in seven top-flight away games since the win at St Mary’s - Demarai Gray’s strike in the 1-1 draw at Manchester City on 31st December.

Sean Dyche must learn a new trick to solve an old Everton problem

19:18 , Michael Jones

It was in the build-up to a game against Arsenal when Sean Dyche showed Dominic Calvert-Lewin a reel of his goals. He urged the striker to get in the box, between the width of the posts and on the end of crosses. Calvert-Lewin responded with five attempts before half-time.

Not Wednesday’s game against Arsenal, admittedly. Calvert-Lewin is out injured, as he has been for three-quarters of Dyche’s reign and much of Frank Lampard’s. There is no timescale for his return which, given his fitness record since scoring 21 goals for Carlo Ancelotti in 2020/21, may be both depressing and sensible. Predictions of his return can appear optimistic amid seemingly endless absences.

Take out Calvert-Lewin and Everton go into the rematch of Dyche’s debut as the lowest scorers in the Premier League and with the weakest available strike force. They are the only team without a player with at least four league goals this season and one of their pair on three, Anthony Gordon, is now on Newcastle’s books. Specialist strikers have delivered just two. Both goals under Dyche have come from defenders: a freakishly brilliant effort from Seamus Coleman and a set-piece header from James Tarkowski.

Victory would take the Gunners to 60 points, their joint-highest total after 25 Premier League fixtures, matching their record in 2003/04 and 2007/08.

Everton have never won a Premier League game away to the side starting the day top of the table, drawing five and losing 19 such matches.

The Toffees’ last league victory away to the top-flight leaders was a 2-1 win at Wimbledon in September 1986.

Arsenal have just one win from their last four home league games - two draws, one loss - after winning each of the previous 10.

And, the north London side have kept only two clean sheets in their last 16 top-flight matches at the Emirates.

Sean Dyche working to change Everton’s mentality heading into away matches

18:58 , Michael Jones

Sean Dyche is working to change Everton’s mentality going into away games with the aim of improving a dismal record on the road so far this season.

Everton head to Arsenal on Wednesday night as clear second favourites against the Premier League leaders, having not won an away league match since beating Southampton 2-1 on October 1.

The Emirates is perhaps not the most likely place to end that run, but with a trip to Nottingham Forest to follow on Sunday, Dyche knows the importance of changing Everton’s fortunes away from Goodison Park.

Arteta on Arsenal’s best XI

18:53 , Michael Jones

Mikel Arteta says he doesn’t know whether Arsenal have a best XI and that the team is constantly changing and evolving as players get injured or come into great from.

“We assess that situation every single day.” said the Gunners’ boss, “The fact [is] we have options now - we have players coming back from injury giving us alternatives, which is going to be crucial.

“Players can’t maintain the same level for 10 months - it’s just impossible. We need to change and we have to generate alternatives and be more unpredictable for opponents sometimes as well. We have those options now.”

Arsenal vs Everton team changes

18:49 , Michael Jones

Mikel Arteta names the same Arsenal starting XI that defeated Leicester City 1-0 last time out. Leandro Trossard keeps his place in the top line with Eddie Nketiah, Emile Smith Rowe and Thomas Partey settling for spots on the bench.

Sean Dyche meanwhile switched out Conor Coady for Michael Keane in the only change to the Everton starting XI. Coady starts on the bench.

Dyche on scoring more goals

18:40 , Michael Jones

Everton boss, Sean Dyche, hopes to improve his team’s goal scoring stats and he attempts to keep the Toffees in the Premier League this season.

The manager explained that he has been impressed with the team’s performances since taking over but that they need to score more in order to win games.

“It’s simple when we talk about [finding more goals] but it’s not easy to deliver,” said Dyche. “The mentality of the players has been good. We’ve got to ask questions, create different ways of affecting games and that’s what we’re looking to do but, while we’re doing that, not lose sight of the fact that the defensive shape has to still be good.

“The Premier League is unforgiving at both ends of the pitch and we’ve shown good signs of the side being tighter and more structured in its defending.

“Now it’s [about] how you can open the door when you’re attacking and, certainly, I think if you take the goals out of the game on Saturday and looking at winning two of the past three coming into it, I think we maybe even delivered a more powerful performance.

“That’s how the big, clinical moments count. That’s how important they are to change a performance and people’s view of it, because Saturday was a good performance all-round but we didn’t score the goals and we let two soft ones in. We’ve got to change that, obviously.”

Arteta on Everton

18:35 , Michael Jones

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, was asked whether he wanted to get some revenge on Everton after the Merseryside clubs defeated the Gunners at Goodison Park last month.

“It’s a case of doing things better than we did when we played them a few weeks ago and earning the right to win the game.” he replied during his pre-match media duties, “Hopefully tomorrow we will play much better than we did that day.

“It’s like with any opponent. We showed them what they do, what they are about, what we expect to do to try to beat them and nothing different.

“We have to improve.”

Should Arsenal vs Everton be on TV tonight? Premier League broadcast rules explained

18:30 , Michael Jones

It is an odd quirk of the Premier League’s TV rights that tonight’s important game between leaders Arsenal and relegation-threatened Everton will not be shown live in the UK, but will be broadcast in Denmark, the Dominican Republic and Djibouti.

Pick any country or territory in the world: the Premier League lists 39 separate international TV deals on its website which cover almost every part of the globe.

But fans at home have long faced limits. Currently only 200 of the Premier League’s 380 games per season are allowed to be shown live in the UK: Sky Sports owns the rights to 128 of those, BT Sport shows 52, and Amazon broadcasts the other 20. The rest are mostly hidden behind the Saturday ‘blackout’ – a law which dates back to the 1960s preventing football from being shown on UK TV between 2:45pm and 5:15pm, in an effort to protect the attendances of lower league clubs.

Why is Arsenal vs Everton not on TV?

18:10 , Michael Jones

Arsenal and Everton meet in a crucial Premier League fixtures for two clubs at opposite ends of the table at the Emirates Stadium.

The hosts can move five points clear of Manchester City with victory, while a positive result for Everton on the road would be a significant boost as Sean Dyche bids to keep his side up.

The encounter was due to originally be played in September, but was postponed after the death of Queen Elizabeth II.

A busy league, cup and European calendar meant finding a suitable date for the rescheduled fixture was not straight forward, but will finally take place this week, with early exits from the FA Cup for both clubs freeing space in a crowded schedule.

The match will not be live on TV for viewers in the United Kingdom, though. Here’s why:

Arsenal vs Everton predicted line-ups

Arsenal: Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Zinchenko; Xhaka, Jorginho, Odegaard; Saka, Trossard, Martinelli.

Everton: Pickford; Coleman, Tarkowski, Coady, Mykolenko; Iwobi, Doucoure, Gueye, Onana, McNeil; Maupay.

What is the early team news?

17:55 , Michael Jones

An appearance off the bench against Leicester for Thomas Partey was welcome news for Mikel Arteta, though Jorginho is likely to continue in the starting anchor midfield role.

Knee injuries leave Mohamed Elneny and Gabriel Jesus still sidelined. Arteta must decide how to assemble his forward line having begun without a specialist centre forward at the King Power Stadium.

Everton will be without Dominic Calvert-Lewin, with a thigh injury the lastest issue ailing the striker. Also on Sean Dyche’s injury list are Nathan Patterson, James Garner and Andros Townsend. Neal Maupay may remain as Calvert-Lewin’s stand in up front.

How can I watch Arsenal vs Everton?

Arsenal vs Everton

15:35 , Michael Jones

Hello and welcome to The Independent’s coverage of tonight’s Premier League action as Arsenal host Everton. This fixture has been rearranged following the death of Queen Elizabeth II back in September and comes at a crucial time for both teams.

Arsenal hope to extend their lead at the top of the table to five points but defeat to Everton would leave them vulnerable to being caught by second place Manchester City. The Toffees meanwhile hope to escape the relegation zone and three points tonight would be enough to shoot them as high as 15th.

As this is a postponed fixture none of the UK broadcasters have the rights to show the match live on tv but we’ll have all the updates from the game as well as team news and more throughout the night.
