‘Thank you Tottenham!’ Averting a crisis with the victory of a rival… The championship race continues￼
Arsenal breathed a sigh of relief.
Arsenal lost 0-1 to Everton in the 22nd round of the English Premier League (EPL) in the 2022-23 season held at Goodison Park in Liverpool, England on the 4th at 9:30 pm (Korean time). Arsenal, who did not win points, remained in first place without widening the gap with Manchester City.
It was completely destroyed by coach Sean Dyche’s tough football. This match was also the debut match of director Daichi’s Everton coach, but the style of director Daichi, who ran the game based on solid defense and long passes heading to the front since his Burnley coaching days, was the same at Everton. Coach Daichi used the 4-5-1 formation to build a two-line defense, and in the midfield, he set up midfielders with good mobility to attack Arsenal’s midfield. Up front, Dominic Calvert-Lewin took on the same role as Chris Wood during his time at Burnley.
Arsenal struggled to break through Everton’s midfield and defence. He had several good chances, but failed to score. In particular, the flank attack with Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli was disappointing. Arsenal conceded a goal to James Takowski from a corner kick in the second half, and Takowski’s opening goal gave Arsenal a loss.
The Everton match was an important match for Arsenal. Arsenal, which maintains first place in the league, had to win against Everton to widen the gap with second place Man City. An easy victory was expected because Everton is a team located in the relegation zone, but it was Arsenal who was hit by an unexpected counterpunch. Arsenal had to watch the game after losing against Everton, hoping Man City would lose to Tottenham Hotspur. 스포츠토토
And Man City lost 0-1 without breaking the Tottenham away jinx. The gap between Arsenal and Manchester City has remained at five points, and Arsenal still have one game less than Manchester City. Ironically, Arsenal were able to breathe a sigh of relief thanks to their biggest rival, Tottenham. This can be said to be the reason why the EPL and soccer are fun.
Arsenal meet Manchester City after the Brentford match. Both matches are very important matches. Attention is focusing on whether Arsenal, with the help of Tottenham, will be able to seize this opportunity by continuing the championship competition with Man City.
