Zhaka was denied a goal in Arsenal crash again Everton yesterday which seems to be a golden chance to have propelled the Gunners ahead of Everton
After a scandalous few days off the pitch, Arsenal returned to competitive Premier League action with a 1-0 defeat against Everton.
In the hours before the game, thousands gathered outside the Emirates Stadium to protest Stan Kroenke’s ownership. Flares and signs were abundant, and the chants impassioned. One thing is for certain, they made their voices heard.
Neither side created any serious chances in the game opening 30 minutes. Bukayo Saka’s snapshot failed to trouble Jordan Pickford, but Everton soon gave Bernd Leno a scare.
An error from Bernd Leno saw Arsenal slip to defeat to Everton on an evening where home fans marched on the Emirates Stadium to protest against the club’s owners.
The action on the pitch did not rival the pre-match protests, which included fireworks that were missing for large parts of the match itself.
But Everton would leave north London with all three points after goalkeeper Leno turned a Richarlison cross into his own goal to give the Toffees a 1-0 win, their first victory in seven games across all competitions.
