(Everton – Arsenal 2-1) Arsenal’s Martin Odegaard scored 22 goals in the second game in a row and had two chances to win the match. Instead, it was a gem from Everton’s Demarie Gray (25) who decided the match.
– It’s a big hit. We weren’t at the level we should be today. We’re not playing well even though we’ve had good periods. We have a lot of space, so if we use it better, we have a lot of space to play. Ødegaard says according to TV 2, we should have done better.
He thinks Arsenal have “stopped playing”.
– When you are 1-0 up, you are a little afraid of losing the lead. Then you have to keep playing, and that’s where we made a mistake today, says Ødegaard.
In extra time of the first half, Kieran Tierney came free on the left side of Arsenal. Meanwhile, Martin Odegaard snuck into Everton. Nobody intercepted the Norwegian, Tierney’s post was accurate, while Odegaard’s shot was a great shot.
For a long time, it seemed Martin Odegaard was going to be a scapegoatp 2-3 wallpapers For Manchester United where he scored a penalty on the decisive goal – until he scored his second goal in a row.
Everton’s Richarlison scored two goals that were ruled out by VAR for good offside – a goal just before Odegaard’s goal and a goal after 58 minutes. But the third time Richarlison hit the ball into the goal in the evening, the goal remained consistent.
Demari Gray hit the crossbar from distance, and Richarlison brilliantly headed back into goal to make it 1-1 in the 79th minute.
It’s an incredible ending, says Sky Sports expert Jamie Carragher.
After a few minutes, Ødegaard came up with a good opportunity, but the shot into the 16 meters was blocked by sacrificial defensive play. The same thing happened in the 90th minute.
Between Odegaard’s two chances, Arsenal’s substitute was supposed to be Eduardo Nketia 2-1, but from a few meters away he hit the post and swerved off.
After 92 minutes, the decision came the other way. Where the margins were against Demarie Gray with a 1-1 goal, the margins were in overtime. He dribbled freely from a distance of 20 meters and hit the ball into the net through the post and inside.
A true gem, Everton cheers for their first league winner since 2-0 against Norwich in September.
“It was a crazy moment, my best moment yet,” Gray told Sky Sports.
Everton fully deserved the win. They have been better than Arsenal, says Sky Sports expert Gary Neville.
After one minute of extra time, Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had a golden opportunity to score 2-2, but the striker was out of his fitness and put it outside.
Arsenal is still in seventh place with 23 points. Everton climbed to twelfth place with 18 points.
