A very important and crucial win for Arsenal against Everton FC where Arsenal passed a huge test, even though they didn’t perform well at all, and were lucky to win from one goal from Alexander Lacazette early in the second half, and an offside goal from Pierre Emerick Aubamyeng.
Arsenal achieved the important thing, the three points, but the performance wasn’t convincing where Arsenal had just 5 shots and 3 on target, and Everton had 6 shots and 4 on target until the 55th minute before Arsenal score the first goal.
