Three lessons for Arsenal to take from matchday 6 win over Everton

Three lessons for Arsenal to take from matchday 6 win over Everton

Unai Emery has warned his Arsenal stars to fix their leaky defence in time for Sunday's Premier League clash against Everton.

The Greece global limped off the pitch after a knock to his knee and was replaced by Rob Holding before goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang sealed a 2-0 win for the Gunners.

The Gunners raced into a four-goal lead through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's double and strikes from Danny Welbeck and Mesut Ozil.

Theo Walcott admits he "fell out of love with football" towards the end of his time at Arsenal as he struggled for regular game time under Arsene Wenger.

Emery made eight changes for the Europa League clash as he rested his key players for Everton's visit to the Emirates Stadium.

"They didn't win that important match [against West Ham] but maybe this is why they can be more unsafe to us because they come here and need to show their supporters that they are better than the last match".

Now let's all make wild comparisons with this morsel to the legendary Joker performance of Heath Ledger in " the Dark Knight ". The camera gradually pulls in closer and we only see him as the grinning villain, with his signature white face and red lips.

Charlie Nicholas has told Sky Sports that he thinks Walcott should've actually re-signed for former club Southampton in January, who attempted to sign Walcott before Everton blew them out of the water financially with a £110,000-a-week deal (The Times), with Nicholas suggesting that he would have suited Southampton's style of play better. "For me it is a little bit unusual, but OK, mistakes are made, I make them as well, and the assistant and ref they can make them as well".

Asked if he had been frustrated at being made to wait to make his debut, Leno replied: "Of course, because I came to the club to play every game". For me, the Europa League is very important. "We need to impose ourselves on the game".

"I believe that they will do that and for sure they will keep on improving in the future".

If that was tough on Everton, there was worse to come for Marco Silva's side three minutes later as Arsenal scored a dubious second to seal the points. "It's clear we have a very competitive team and I'm confident in them".

A long pass into Richarlison should have been easy for Bellerin to subdue, but he allowed the Brazilian forward to turn away from him far too easily, and it took a good save from Petr Cech to spare his team-mate's blushes.

Everton had a pair of good chances go wanting, the first an ungiven penalty to Dominic Calvert-Lewin and the second a ball bounding through the six.
