Ian Wright, the Arsenal legend has given his thoughts on the defeat of Everton in the Premier League. Arsenal had the chance to go 8 points clear at top of the standings of the Premier League with a win at Goodison Parks but they grappled to create several meaningful openings as the home crowd has been buoyed by Sean Dyche’s arrival as the new manager. It took one of the former Burnley favorites of Dyche to break the deadlock when James Tarkowski, the defender headed past Aaron Ramsdale from one of the threatening set-pieces from the Toffees.
Nevertheless, the side of Mikel Arteta had been unable to defeat the opposite number of Ramsdale number, Jordan Pickford condemning them to their loss in the second league in the campaign. Ian Wright, the Arsenal icon tweeted that Everton deserved that. He said that they have to learn from it and move on. As they are at the top of the league, everyone will be up to play for them. There is a lot for the team to take away from the defeat.
It is only just 5 points, which separate the Gunners from second-placed Man City after 20 league fixtures, even though the Citizens have the opportunity to close the gap to just 2 when they travel to North London for taking on the local rivals of Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur.
Yet, Arteta stayed upbeat in his interview with the media after the match, admitting that the recent form of the side made it easier for him to avoid giving the player an angry dressing down following their defeat. The Spaniard said that he wants the team to know how much he loves them. He says that he loves them now more than 3 hours ago, a week ago, a month ago, and 3 months ago.
