Arsenal extended their lead at the top of the table to five points after thrashing Everton 4 goals to zero at the Emirates Stadium.

Everton kept their defensive shape for the entire duration of the first half but lost focus five minutes to the end of the half when Ukrainian, Oleksandr Zinchenko gave a defense splitting pass to fellow teammate, Bukayo Saka, who sent a rocket to the roof of the net to open the scoring.

With stoppage time in few minutes, Saka robbed Idrissa Gana Gueye just at the edge of the Everton 18 yard box to play in Gabriel Martinelli who wasted no time in blasting a low shot to Jordan Pickford’s left. The flag went up for an offside but the decision was overturned after a VAR check.

Everton had no response to Arsenal’s nonstop attack after Leandro Trossard played in a low cross to captain Martin Odegaard to make it the third goal of the evening.
