Not really sure what to expect from this. Even though Arsenal are a shadow of what they should be at the moment, it would still be a big statement for us to go there and win given our massive mental block at certain away games. According to the podcasts I listen to, we haven't won at Arsenal since 1996, Chelsea since 1994 and Liverpool since 1999. I'm definitely a year or two out on a couple of those but that's incredible to have three records like that when we've played those teams every season since.

The form for each team makes for surprising reading for two sides whose current league positions are a pretty honest reflection of their ability in my opinion. 

I know they won 4-0 last week but my gut feeling is still that if I was offered a draw or see how it goes, I'd choose to see how it goes.

They were there for the taking in the first 30 minutes last week. Every reason for a side like Everton to have hope.

Surely this is a diamond midfield of some sort and not Sigurdsson out wide? Cant imagine we would do that instead of playing Bernard or Kean with Richarlison dropping to a wide role.

Anyway, Gomes back on the bench 👊.

What a nightmare start for Arsenal. 

Was that Luiz with that nightmare clearance? xD

Great start. Calvert-Lewin wouldn't have dreamt of trying that 6 months ago.

If you get a chance take it and Calvert-Lewin does. Good goal and deserved for Everton.

Fuck sake, tuned in to this too late and missed the goal xD. What happened?

Luiz headed it backwards in the box off of a FK, and Lewis did a nice overhead kick to score the goal. 

Laughable defense.

How has Pepe been at Arsneal this year? I loved him last year at Lille, but haven't seen him since his move to the EPL.

He’s awful - buying from that farmers league is very difficult

Nowhere near the £72m Arsenal paid Lille for him.

He's not great.

Got to say this Arsenal defense are shaky. They are making poor passes and putting themselves under pressure easily.

I don't watch the EPL so I don't know their names, but the CB on Arsenal with the white hair looks slow and uneasy

It's David Luiz and Mustafi. Are you surprised?

They've been shite all season. No organisation, discipline or any kind of connection whoever plays there. Mustafi is just average at best.

Well not surprised at the CB partnership being shaky its the fact that the wings have an opportunity to clear it up and instead pass it back into traffic. Sometimes I wonder how much possession matters when you're under 15 minutes into a game and the opposition have confidence on their side. I suspect we'll see more goals in this one,.

Nketiah equalises!

What a cross from Saka. 10th assist this season!

Not enough pressure on David Luiz there. Our lack of any dynamic midfielders and pace in defence is really being exposed here.

Aubeameyang is lethal from there. 

Arsenal are up!

Saka is something special.

Hasn't been worth the big money but has been an okay player that sometimes bursts into life. 6.5/10.

I take it you're not that happy with Ndombele...

They've actually been solid together recently.

Lol what is that goal? Sort of goal we'd concede. Not convinced Richarlison even got a touch there so possibly Mina who will be credited with the goal.

Our game management needs a lot of work. We showed no ability in the middle of that half to take the sting out of the game by keeping possession for 5 minutes. The first goal is pure quality but their second is the result of us letting our heads drop and allowing them to seize momentum.

Still think Arsenal win this. We aren't looking great in attack outside of set pieces unless Bernard or Kean can come on and give them some more trouble.

Correct, incredibly talented on the ball, incredible lazy off it. He's so unfit and overweight. Can't play more than 60 minutes a game, can't play him in a midfield two because he's a liability. So frustrating cause he's obviously got so much ability, but he's played in the majority of our worst defeats this season and we just can't afford to carry him.

Think Richarlison got a little touch on it.

He definitely got a slight touch on it
