Arsenal 2-0 Everton: Lacazette and Aubameyang key again for Unai Emery

Unai Emery's Arsenal revolution continued to build momentum as his usual suspects provided the goals to secure a fourth successive Premier League win at the expense of Everton.

Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang fired in quick-fire second-half strikes to secure a 2-0 victory, although the latter was offside as he tucked home.

It was the third time in the last five league games they have started together that both forwards have found the back of the net.

After losing the opening two games of his reign, Emery has been unbeaten since, although the Toffees will feel hard done by to leave the Emirates Stadium on the receiving end of a defeat.

Marco Silva's men had the better of the first half, with Richarlison, back in the team after serving a three-match ban, a threat for much of the opening 45 minutes.

Despite a decent display, Everton remain without a league win since the second week of the season and have not won a Premier League encounter at Arsenal since Andrei Kanchelskis scored the winner at Highbury in January 1996.

  • Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette have both scored in three of the last five Premier League games they’ve started together.
  • 12 of Arsenal striker Alexandre Lacazette’s 16 Premier League goals have been scored at the Emirates Stadium (75%) – only Tony Adams (83% - 10/12) scored a higher percentage of his goals in the competition in home games for the Gunners (min. 10 goals).

Chelsea's perfect start to the season came to a halt as they were held to a goalless draw at West Ham.

Maurizio Sarri's side were looking to join Liverpool at the top of the Premier League on 18 points after six games, but they were denied by a resilient and enterprising display from their derby hosts.

Not even Eden Hazard, back in the side after being rested in Europe in midweek, could find a way to break the deadlock.

Opta facts

  • West Ham have avoided defeat in three consecutive Premier League games against Chelsea (W1 D2) for the first time since a run of five between March 1998 and March 2000.
  • Chelsea failed to score in the Premier League for the first time under Maurizio Sarri and for just the second time in their last 15 league games (also a 0-3 defeat at Newcastle in May).
  • This was only Chelsea’s second goalless draw in their last 48 away Premier League games (also 0-0 against Everton in December 2017).
  • Chelsea midfielder Jorginho attempted 180 passes in this match – since 2003-04, this is the most by a player in a single Premier League match.
  • Jorginho has completed 628 passes in total for Chelsea in the Premier League this season, more than any other player.
  • This was Chelsea’s 600th top-flight London derby, becoming the third London side to reach this number after Arsenal (674) and Spurs (609).
