Arsenal end poor Everton record with huge win amid Gabriel Martinelli injury

Arsenal took all three points after Leandro Trossard's second-half strike made the difference against Everton at Goodison Park. The Belgian forward came on as a substitute in the first half after replacing Gabriel Martinelli.

The Brazilian forward was taken off with a hamstring injury moments after having a goal ruled out following a VAR review. The Gunners trialled a new set piece tactic which ultimately led to Trossard opening the scoring with a brilliant strike after some good passing play from a short corner.

New wonderkid transfer eyed

Arsenal are showing interest in RB Salzburg wonderkid Oscar Gloukh as the 19-year-old Israeli attacking midfielder continues to impress. That's according to the Sun, which claims that the Gunners are joined by rivals Manchester United and Liverpool in search of his signature.

The youngster only joined his current side in January, switching Maccabi Tel Aviv for Austria in a deal worth £6million, though it remains to be seen whether they are open to a sale after just a year.

New CEO lined up

Arsenal owner Stan Kroenke is lining up a new CEO at the club to replace Vinai Venkatesham at the end of the current Premier League season. It comes as the current CEO has confirmed he will be stepping down at the end of the campaign, ending a 14-year association with the club.

In a statement from Venkatesham released by Arsenal, he said: "This was a tough decision, but it is time to pursue another challenge. Now is not the time for goodbyes as I remain focused until my last day and supporting a seamless transition.”
