Arsenal missed the chance to move back to the top of the Premier League table on Wednesday night, as the Gunners suffered a 2-1 defeat at Everton.

Arsenal had the first real effort on goal on seven minutes. Nacho Monreal found an off-balance Mesut Ozil, who put an effort over the bar. Arsenal took the lead with the next shot on goal on 20 minutes.

Ashley Williams gave away a free-kick on the edge of the area and the resulting free-kick from Alexis Sanchez hit the Welsh international before beating Maarten Stekelenburg in the Toffees goal. On 28 minutes Enner Valencia headed an effort well over Petr Cech’s bar from a corner kick.

With other areas of the team the main priority for Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger this summer, signing a new centre-back this summer seemed to take a back seat. However, with Thomas Vermaelen supposedly unhappy at a lack of first team football, the Belgium could very well leave the Emirates Stadium.


Thomas Vermaelen is only regarded as a back-up to Arsenal first choice central defensive partnership of Laurent Koscielny and Per Mertesacker. If Vermaelen were to leave then that would leave the Gunners with just two senior centre-backs at the club, so Wenger would have to replace him.
