Everton picked up a much-needed 2-1 win over Arsenal on Tuesday night to end a run of five games without a win in the Premier League.
Ronald Koeman’s side have been criticised often in recent weeks due to their poor run of form, and that looked set to continue when Alexis Sanchez fired home a free-kick after just 20 minutes.
However, the Toffees grew into the game and deservedly equalised just before half time through Seamus Coleman, and they then found a winner four minutes from the end when Ashley Williams headed home Ross Barkley’s out-swinging corner.
It was a massive result for Koeman and his side, who had prior to that win won just once in their ten league games, and found themselves on the verge of dropping into the bottom half.
However, they are now up to seventh and just a point behind Manchester United in sixth, who are a further three behind Tottenham in fifth.
Although it was a great win over the Gunners, it doesn’t detract from a frustrating run of form for Everton, who picked up just seven points from a possible 30 prior to beating Arsenal.
Nonetheless, that result could potentially define their season and, as Christmas is approaching and we are almost half way through the season, we thought we’d evaluate Everton’s season thus far…
