Arsenal continued their winning run in the Premier League after they got past Everton, and also managed to keep their first clean sheet of the season. Everton had a number of chances but were thwarted by Petr Cech and leave the Emirates Stadium empty handed.
Here are three things we learned from Arsenal's 2-0 win over Everton.
3. First clean sheet but defensive issues remain
Arsenal can finally put to rest the bogey of not keeping a clean sheet in any of their games so far this season. However, it wasn't because of a compact defence that they managed to keep Everton out. Rather it was Petr Cech they had to thank for, with the defenders continuing to make mistakes and giving freedom to Everton's attackers.
2. Chances not taken
Everton will rue the chances they missed as the first half was theirs for the taking. Arsenal were slow during that period and Everton should have scored a couple of goals, if it wasn't for Petr Cech. In the second half, Arsenal were much more compact and took their chances to score two goals, and take the game away from Everton.
1. Petr Cech - Man of the Match
After Bernd Leno finally got his debut in the Europa League, Petr Cech stepped up his game with a phenomenal performance against Everton and was the sole reason for Arsenal keeping a clean sheet. His defence was not all that helpful in the first half, but he made a series of saves that deservedly won him the Man of the Match.
