Video Highlights – Arsenal 2-0 Everton – Jesus and Saka give us the win

So Arsenal played in their first game of the tour of USA and it was a little tougher than our first pre-season game against Nurnberg. But the Gunners won again as we faced our fellow EPL rivals Everton, and both fielded a strong side in the first half.

Arsenal looked the livelier side and hit the post early on, and then just after the half hour mark, Jesus and Saka both scored in the space of three minutes to send us into the break 2-0 up.

Arteta made numerous changes in the second half but neither side could add to the score….

The Arsenal highlights are not up yet, but we have the official Everton highlights and a longer official American version….


  1. That last piece of action in the USA highlights looked like a penalty. I dare say VAR would have awarded that.

    Overall it looked as though the play was a bit disjointed – lots of energy and movement but most of the few moves ended with someone being hurried into giving the ball away.

    1. But surely like all other wise Gooners. you are well aware that pre season friendlies are merely preparation games and, though we are of course keen to win , the performance is not a true guide of what is to come once the season proper starts?

      1. Of course, but one also tries to read the tea leaves and see how it will pan out in the real season and I was concerned at the number of times play just fizzled out in a loss of possession.

        Usually it was someone trying to force a pass that wasn’t there when too many players were in one area of the field. Sometimes you need someone who can put their foot on the ball and look at the big picture.

        They may be able to adjust – as you say, it’s only pre-season – but you need players of the right type to know when to hit the pause button, even if it’s only for a second, and I didn’t see anyone showing that kind of nous in that game.

  2. While Jesus is very good addition I think Arsenal still need one more in that area preferably a physically strong person with arial power. That is more important than a new left back or MF. But looks there is no plan to sign one as that kind of profile is not mentioned even in gossips

  3. I never expected his skills, hold-up play and creative turns to be so good. He seems to be playing without shackles in pre-season, so hopefully he keeps doing it fearlessly in EPL

    My only concern is his playing style will invite harsh challenges, as seen in the US game. If he gets a grave injury, Nketiah and Balogun must be ready to replace him

      1. I don’t think our attackers were heavily constrained by our tactics last season. I feel they were just not as skilled as Jesus

  4. I want to be positive by saying that I think and believe that Arsenal will before this summer transfer window closes will sign another new top quality centreforward. Who can score goals in number regularly at the top level. And he is not only at 6ft plus in height, which he should be at. But also, he is physically very strong and has an imposing profile in the box as well.
    But i don’t know the name of this new centreforward who Arsenal are going to sign. But his name will become known to us when Arsenal have unearned him and submitted a bid to sign him. Which I believe will soon come to pass this summer.
    But Arsenal senior team players injury problem is looking to be mounting. With some of it looked to date back from last season. And the latest addition to the 4 of: Tomiyasu White, Tierney and ESR who are currently on the treatment table is now Vieira who was recently signed.
    But how come the born injury which Arteta said he has was not detected by the Arsenal medical staff, who conducted a medical on him before Arsenal sign him? I think the Arsenal medical chief should be held accountable for his negligence of duty which has now cost Arsenal.

    1. Missed a bargain in Georgio Giacomakis, top scorer in the Scottish Premiership for Celtic last season and top scorer in the Eridivise for a relegated club the previous season.

  5. Did anyone else who watched the whole game live have any issues with the transmission continuously failing for a minute or so during play? I have decent enough download speed and usually only get this if I’m streaming from bad sites, but it happened appx six times.

    1. Use Vipleague mate
      It’s Hd quality but beware you have to get through about 15 adds before you get to the match
      I’ve got a laptop I only use for films and spots so it does not bother me ,but that is the best site

  6. Remember, it is still preseason.

    The rubber hits the road when we play Palace.

    Everything is just practice until then!!

  7. I embrase fully the improvement in the squad, but forbid me from counting the chicks before they hatch.
    Let’s take advantage of the pre season to train advancely. Meanwhile the main campaign is yet to begin

  8. Good to get another win under the belt although it is only preseason. Gabriel Jesus is proving to be the signing of the season for us and hopefully it remains like that for many many seasons to come. I think MA will play Zinchenko, as and when he comes, in the midfield which might also mean we wont sign Tielemans. Maybe we might sign a winger before the transfer window shuts down. Another thing is now MA and Edu might focus on outgoings, lot of players need to be either sold or loaned out.
