Dermot Gallagher defends assistant over Arsenal's second goal against Everton

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang doubled Arsenal's advantage shortly after Alexandre Lacazette's opener, but the Gabon global was a yard offside when converting from close range.

But, having escaped without punishment for their tepid first half, Arsenal seized the lead in the 56th minute.

However, if Everton's defence is not much better than it was last weekend, another disappointing result could take the shine off any performance for the travelling support.

Arsenal nearly scored from their first chance 10 minutes later when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's cutback from the left found Nacho Monreal, who forced Jordan Pickford into a sharp save from seven yards out.

While it is important to keep your discipline in the maelstrom of a tough top-flight encounter seasoned observers were relishing the new-found midfield aggression.

But Lacazette ensured that lethargic spell wouldn't prove costly when he smashed a sublime opener in the second half.

Authorities have not released where the shipment came from or who the intended recipient was. "Sometimes, life gives you lemons". The Drug Enforcement Administration and US Customs and Border Protection are continuing their investigation.

Moments after Aubameyang should have won a penalty after Jonjoe Kenny reacted to a header coming towards him by lifting his arm.

No matter, striker Lacazette broke the deadlock with a cracking shot 11 minutes after the restart.

The visitors looked the likelier to score in the closing stages and Cech had to parry away Michael Keane's header from a free-kick on the left in the 71st minute, before Sigurdsson's first-time strike from 20 yards out was deflected over by Lucas Torreira on 83 minutes.

That controversial effort shattered Everton's resolve as Arsenal celebrated a flattering victory that lifted them to sixth place in the Premier League.

The former Dortmund striker was rightly given a standing ovation as Emery introduced Alex Iwobi with 21 minutes remaining.

Danny Welbeck replaced Ramsey before Digne hit the angle of post and bar for Everton as their last chance of getting back into the game came and went. Surely the club can't afford another drawn-out contract saga, with the message from many being "sign that contract or leave".
