It was a night to forget for Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno as Mikel Arteta’s team were defeated by Everton on Friday night.
With fans of Arsenal protesting before the match due to the club’s participation in the proposed European super league, their favourite team’s struggle on the pitch continued.
The first half ended in a goalless draw with Everton coming close to breaking the deadlock after Arsenal 0-0 Everton Gylfi Sigurdsson’s free-kick hit the woodwork.
Arsenal then was not awarded a penalty after a VAR check stated that Nicolas Pepe was in an offside position before Richarlison brought down a gunners player in the box.
Richarlison soon became the hero after his cross-shot sneaks under Bernd Leno to give Everton the lead.
Carlo Ancelotti’s men stood still to preserve their lead as they defeat Arsenal at home since 1996.
Arsenal in the process have now failed to score in 8 of 17 league games at Emirates Stadium this season. Only West Brom (9) & Fulham (10) have failed to score in more home PL games in 2020-21.
