Arsenal vs Everton is usually a tough game, but merely from the perspective that they’re normally a very physical team. Roberto Martinez has taken them to the next level with some smart signings (albeit loan), an impressive style of football, not to mention all the same fighting attributes commonly associated with the club over the last 10 years.
The first half was dominated by Everton possession wise. Part of me felt we hadn’t clicked into gear, the other part felt like we were testing them in someway. For all of the possession, their chances were limited due to some superb performances by the centre backs. Per was literally everywhere, the man reads the game incredibly well. He’s one of the best in the league at the moment.
