Arsenal 2-0 Everton H-T friendly

Gabriel Jesus is at it again, scoring at the far post from a corner and setting up Bukayo Saka three minutes later for Arsenal's second.

Aside from that, Xhaka hit the post with a header, again from a corner and Godfrey was lucky only to see yellow for an x-rated challenge on Jesus.

Arsenal's new number 9 remonstrated with the referee after that and earlier he went close to opening the scoring with a shot that Pickford could only parry.

Saliba, meanwhile, acquitted himself well if unspectacularly against Calvert-Lewin, staying tight on his man. Whenever the Everton striker did escape, Cedric was there to sweep up.

Turner in Arsenal's goal was called upon a couple of times, but looked solid.

Mikel Arteta will no doubt be pleased by the side's showing in the first half.
