  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 0-1 ARSENAL

    55 Arsenal have been dominating possession and tempo just like the first half.

    But they seem to be more dangerousnow in the second half, the visitors are more confident now that they hold the lead

    EVERTON 0-1 ARSENAL

    50 Gary Neville and Jamie Carragher believe Godfrey is "lucky" to avoid a red card after stepping on Tomiyasu's face.

    Neville believes the Everton ace meant to do it but understands why VAR shook it off

    EVERTON 0-1 ARSENAL

    48 CHANCE

    Everton create some urgency in the Arsenal goal as Gordon delivers an awkward cross towards Richarlison from the right.

    The ball takes a strange curve and heads towards goal with Ramsdale just managing to palm it away

  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 0-1 ARSENAL

    48 Here is why VAR decided to overrule Richarlison's opener.

    If the Everton star was offside then that was extremely tight….

  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 0-1 ARSENAL

    46 No substitutions from either side as we kick off second half.

    Reminding you all that Everton boss Benitez was forced to replace the injured Mina with Holgate

    PEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP!

    AND OFF WE GO AGAIN MERSEYSIDE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    STATS

    Arsenal dominated 62.6 per cent of possession in the first half.

    But the Gunners only managed a mere two shots, on of which was on target and it was Martin Odegaard's goal.

    Everton, on the other hand, registered four shots but none of them were on target as Richarlison's goal was disallowed.

    The Gunners may be feeling that Ben Godfrey deserved a red card but there have been no bookings so far in the match

    HT: EVERTON 0-1 ARSENAL

    Right, where do we start from…?

    How about this? Arsenal lead against Everton at Goodison Park following an eventful first half.

    The two teams struggled to produce in the opening few minutes and so the biggest highlight was the home fans' protest in the 27th minute when a minority of the crowd left their seats as a sign of protest towards the club's hierarchy.

    VAR then checked for a red card on Ben Godfrey after his studs hit a fallen Takehiro Tomiyasu in the face but it was deemed that he shouldn't be sent off.

    The Merseysiders may have been lucky with Godfrey but were unlucky when Yerry Mina couldn't continue and was replaced by Mason Holgate.

    Everton thought they got the lead just a minute before half-time when Richarlison headed Andros Townsend's free-kick behind Aaron Ramsdale's net.

    However, VAR deemed that the Brazil international was just offside.

    Arsenal, though, managed to break the deadlock in the second minute of stoppage time when a fabulous cross from Kieran Tierney down the left found an unmarked Martin Odegaard, who volleyed the ball past Jordan Pickford

    EVERTON 0-0 ARSENAL

    45 NO GOAL!

    VAR deems Richarlison was offside and thus the game goes back to being goalless….

    It was tight….

  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 1-0 ARSENAL

    44 Everton open the scoring with Richarlison's header following a brilliant free-kick from Townsend on the right.

    But is the Toffees star offside, VAR is having a look….

  • Kostas Lianos

    GOOOOOOOAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL!

    EVERTON OPEN THE SCORING WITH RICHARLISON!!!!!!!

  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 0-0 ARSENAL

    40 Just five minutes to go until half-time.

    And the most significant highlights don't include a football.

    Those are the walkout, Godfrey and Tomiyasu's clash and Mina's substitution…

    Not a very entertaining first half…

  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 0-0 ARSENAL

    38 Here's the exchange between Godfrey and Tomiyasu.

    VAR deemed there is no need for a red card as the Everton man didn't mean to stump on the Arsenal ace

  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 0-0 ARSENAL

    35 It hasn't been a massive walk-out at Goodison Park.

    Reminding you that the protest took place after 27 minutes to highlight the 27 years since the club last won a trophy

  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 0-0 ARSENAL

    33 It looks like most Everton fans have decided to stay on their seats.

    However, we can still see a few empty seats in the stands.

    Reminding you that the fans who left have three options according to the protest:

    They can leave for five minutes, come back at half-time or exit the ground entirely

    31 SUBSTITUTION

    We have our first change of the match, and it's not Tomiyasu who can continue.

    It is instead Mina who comes off as he is obviously not fit enough and is replaced by Holgate

  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 0-0 ARSENAL

    30 No red card for Godfrey!

    VAR deems there is no reason to send the Everton ace off as there was no intent

  • Kostas Lianos

    EVERTON 0-0 ARSENAL

    28 Ouch!

    VAR is looking at a potential red card as Godfrey's foot accidentally finds Tomiyasu's face after the Arsenal star fell to the ground.

    The Everton man's argument is that he didn't mean it and there was nowhere else he could put his foot
