Arguably the 2 most impressive teams in the Premier League this season went head to head at the Emirates yesterday. Here’s 3 things we learned from the encounter in North London
Too early to name Arsenal as title favourites
All in all it wasn’t a bad performance from the Gunners, in fact it was quite good, but that may be the most worrying thing of all as Everton deserved a point, and could have possibly gotten more if it wasn’t for the inspirational Wojciech Szczesny in goal. Everton have deployed a similar European style under Roberto Martinez as Arsene Wenger has brought to the Gunners, and that has made them 2 of the most enjoyable teams to watch in the Premier League with their quick passing and exciting wing play, but in terms of talent, on paper Arsenal should have swept the Toffees aside.
Of course that is something incredibly unfair to say about Everton, as the likes of Gerard Deulofeu, Bryan Oviedo Romelu Lukaku and Kevin Mirallas are a group of the Premier League’s best players. Arsenal still managed to avoid defeat, and that is most likely what was on Arsene Wenger’s agenda going into the match, taking a point from Everton has proved tough this season, and Arsenal have done so. It is still too early to name them as favourites though, even though they have been the best team in England so far this term, it could all change in the January transfer window.
