Veteran defender Phil Jagielka who was a late inclusion to the side after Michael Keane pulled out of the squad minutes before kick-off handed Everton an early lead from Lucas Digne's throw-in. The strike was enough to earn the Toffees all three points at Goodison Park in a match where Arsenal were utterly lacking in either imagination or organization throughout.
Speaking in a press conference after the loss to Everton, Emery heaped praise on Leno for his performance, "I think Leno was perfect to save us. We had three good chances but didn't score. They felt strong here and physically they are players with a lot of strength. We controlled the match better in the first half, like we want. We conceded a goal and needed to offensively change, taking more chances."
