Title-chasing With a 4-0 hammering of relegation-threatened Everton on Wednesday at the Emirates Stadium, Arsenal increased their advantage over the competition's leaders to five points thanks to a brace from Gabriel Martinelli. The struggling Everton initially gave the hosts pause, but goals from Bukayo Saka and Martinelli just before halftime gave them the upper hand as they made the most of their matchup with Manchester City. In the 71st minute, captain Martin Odegaard made it 3-0 with a close-range shot, and Martinelli added his second of the game to complete the onslaught. Arsenal now has 60 points after 25 games, 55 points ahead of City after their home loss to City. Everton had genuinely appeared capable of gaining something from the game, but they have now only experienced one victory in their past 27 league trips to Arsenal. However, after falling behind, the visitors' 14th league loss of the year almost seemed a formality, as they are now third from the bottom with 21 points despite having played one more game than the clubs above them. Arsenal is starting to think about winning their first league title since 2004, while Everton is troubled by the possibility of their first relegation from the Premier League, despite still having to travel to face Manchester City in April. "After the first 25 minutes, we performed well, and I am thrilled with the victory. We started out with some issues "Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal.
"The game opened up when we scored the first goal. Bukayo delivered the magical moment we were looking for. Following that, we developed and earned the victory. In the second half, we played very well and had more opportunities to score. In February, in Sean Dyche's first game in command, Everton upset Arsenal, and during the first 40 minutes of the game, they completely neutralised them. But as halftime neared, they gave in. Up to his breakout, Dangerman Saka had kept a low profile. He received a ball from Odegaard on the right edge of the penalty box, and with much too much time to turn, he hammered an angled shot into the roof of the net. Idrissa Gueye of Everton then gave Arsenal a second. just before halftime. The Senegal midfielder was caught off guard when Saka stole the ball from him and sent it to Martinelli, who then slipped a shot past Jordan Pickford. The VAR judgement overturned an offside call that the visitors believed had saved them, and the home crowd sang "We are top of the league" when Arsenal entered the field. Shot-shy Everton appeared to have little chance of salvaging anything after the break with only 17 league goals for the whole season. Leandro Trossard's cutback allowed Odegaard to score his team's third goal, and Martinelli's late goal after Eddie Nketiah's assist established the gap between the teams.
