Arsenal played out a dull draw with fellow strugglers Everton at Goodison Park. Below are the main talking points from the match.
Starting Line Up
Arsenal left out a host of regular first-teamers in favor of a much younger team. Emile Smith Rowe and Reiss Nelson were handed starts while Nicholas Pepe and Alexandre Lacazette were left on the bench.
With Mesut Ozil also out with an injury, Arsenal was disjointed especially in attack where they seemed to lack ideas.
After a poor first half that produced a total of zero shots on target from both teams, Arsenal was a better unit in the second period.
The Gunners created two good chances that Pierre Aubameyang should have made better use of. The Gunners were pressing high up the pitch. The Gunners need to start with the same intensity against Bournemouth on Thursday.
The Center Back put is a man of the match performance as Arsenal kept their third clean sheet of the season. Interestingly, Calum Chambers has featured in two of the three matches that Arsenal has not conceded.
He has been a bright spark in a dull backline squad at the club.
Next up, Arsenal travels to face Bournemouth on Thursday in what will be Mikel Arteta’s first official match as the Head Coach.
