Everton earned a hard-fought 1-0 win over Premier League leaders Arsenal at Goodison Park on Saturday.

The hosts were the better side in the first half creating numerous chances but they couldn’t convert their chances.

Sean Dyche’s side were difficult to break down and caused Arsenal problems going forward to the credit of the former Burnley coach, who took over this week.

James Tarkowski scored the only goal with a header after the hour mark from Dwight McNeil’s corner.

It was Everton’s first win in 11 games, while the Gunners lost their first game in 14 Premier League matches.

Manchester City have a chance to cut Arsenal’s lead to three points if they beat Tottenham on Sunday.

Arteta expressed his disappointment at the end of the game.

 “Of course there is disappointment. We knew this was going to be a real test for us. We had a lot of control in periods but we struggled.

“We needed to do more to win the game. Conceding the goal the way we did was disappointing as was how we played in many areas, especially the final third.

“I love them more than before the game and last month. Now we have to be next to them when we have had a defeat.”

Arsenal will hope to bounce back when they host Brentford on Saturday, while Liverpool welcome Everton to Anfield on Monday.
