Earlier in the day, Everton confirmed that three-time Champions League winner Carlo Ancelotti has become the new manager of the Merseyside club. The former Chelsea boss watched from the stands while recently-appointed Gunners boss Mikel Arteta was also present at Merseyside.
Everton keeper Jordan Pickford made a good save from Pierre-Emerick Aubemeyang’s shot after the break. Gylfi Sigurdsson also came close to scoring with a free-kick.
The home side enjoyed 43% of possession during the game and they failed to register a single shot on goal. Arsenal, on the other hand, managed 57% of possession and registered two shots on target, according to BBC Sport.
