Last night, Everton defended resiliently against Arsenal. However, with just a moment of distraction, they allowed Leandro Trossard to have space and finish past Jordan Pickford in the second half.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Sean Dyche said: “We didn’t deserve to win. We defended fiercely but could not control the ball. The defense worked very hard but in attack we never really came close to troubling the goalkeeper and making a difference.”
“They (Arsenal) pressed well and we weren’t sure whether to pass short or pass long. You have to get the first pass on the move. If you don’t get it then the team can’t counter-attack. More details on combinations – a good finish from them but really poor detail from us,” Everton coach concluded.
Defeating Everton at Goodison Park, Arsenal maintained their winning streak. They are only 2 points away from Man City on the rankings.
