An own goal from Bernd Leno was enough to gift Everton all three points over Arsenal, an on-field reprisal after off-field swings from Everton.
We mentioned in yesterday’s publication that there’s a possibility that Mikel Arteta might choose to rest his key players for a semi-final bout against Villarreal in Europa League next week.
This win makes it the first away win for the Toffee in 25 years. Along with these lines, their first-historically speaking win at the Emirates Stadium.
Besides, this makes it the first run through Everton have done twice over their rivals (they won 2-1 at Goodison Park in December) since the 1985/86 season.
At the moment, Everton sits in the eighth position with 52 points and a game in hand – leading Arsenal at ninth position with 46 points.
