Emery Reveals Why He Benched In-Form Guendouzi Against Everton

Arsenal tried to mount some late first-half pressure, Bellerin crossing but Everton clearing, and a miscued Aubameyang cross hit the bar.

Emery confirmed he will give some of his most promising youngsters a chance to play as he rests his Premier League regulars, which could mean a first career start for teenage midfielder Emile Smith-Rowe. He's started the season very well and we think he's giving us the performance we want. "We deserved really more", Silva told reporters.

Arsenal closed the game out without conceding - for the first clean sheet under Emery - despite centre back Sokratis hobbling off with a knee injury in the first half.

Reflecting on the early struggles in a response to a question from the Gazette Cech responded saying: "It's been a new way for the whole team and we need to find a way to use it to our advantage but every day and every game we are improving".

He said: "I am very happy with the players, the first day in the pre-season they show us they made a decision to do every day the best in training..."

"We are very happy with the goalkeepers. I'm sure that in the coming seasons Arsenal will be making that step up in quality which will hopefully enable them to be on a level playing field and able to fight for the title and other big trophies".

Shaqiri's time will come at Liverpool - Klopp
However, Salah - in need of a goal to quell the largely ridiculous talk about his form - reacted quickest to convert. It's my job to sometimes deliver news that nobody wants to hear.

Sigurdsson sparked another counter, the cross scrambled away with two Everton forwards lurking, and after 21 minutes Richarlison's strike from the edge of the box was stopped by Cech. "Then we scored the goal and I chose to stop it and think again about who we need next". He's clearly offside. For me, it's a little bit unusual but it's OK.

"That's something that you obviously only get with matches, so it's something I've had to work on in training", Holding said when asked if he's feeling match-fit.

Former Gunner Santi Cazorla claimed his Arsenal team-mates did not believe they could genuinely win a battle for first place in the Premier League.

"It's clear where Kenny is in that moment and it's clear on the second touch [by Ramsey] where the player who finishes is as well".

"Today, there was a great finish by Lacazette and one offside goal but, as well, we have to be more effective because we created three, four, five chances and we must score".

Mesut Ozil broke forward and his low cross was scuffed by Ramsey into the path of Aubameyang, who doubled the lead, despite standing in an offside position.
