Everton V Arsenal

Iwobi helps Everton beat Arsenal - RESULT: 2 - 1

Naija Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi put up an impressive performance, as he helped Everton defeat his former club, Arsenal 2-1 at the Goodison Park.

 

Everton scored the opening goal in the 22nd minute after Iwobi sent in a beautiful cross to the head of Dominic Calvert-Lewin, but Gunners defender, Rob Holding deflected the ball into his own goal. Arsenal pulled one back from a Nicolas Pepe penalty in the 35th minute, but 10 minutes later, just before the break, Yerry Mina headed home the ball from a Gylfi Sigurdsson corner, to give the hosts a 2-1 win.

 

 

Everton have now moved up to 4th on the log, after winning 3 straight games against top opposition – Chelsea, Leicester, and Arsenal – but Arsenal, on the other hand, are getting closer to the relegation zone, 4 points above the drop.

 

Do you think Arsenal should sack Mikel Arteta?

Barcelona V Valencia

Messi’s striker not enough to help Barcelona beat Valencia - RESULT: 2 - 2

Six-time Ballon d’Or winner, Lionel Messi thought he had won it for Barcelona, but his goal was not enough to win all 3 points, as Valencia equalized to pick up a point in the 2-2 draw at the Camp Nou.

 

Mouctar Diakhaby scored the opening goal in the 29th minute from a Carlos Soler corner kick. Barcelona were awarded a controversial penalty and Lionel Messi missed the spot-kick, but the argentine scored immediately after a Jordi Alba’s shot was deflected and the captain headed home. 7 minutes into the second half, defender Ronald Araujo scored an acrobatic shot to give the Catalan giants a 2-1 lead, but Maximiliano Gomez levelled matters by beating a Barcelona defender to tap in the ball.

 

 

More worries for Ronald Koeman and his Barcelona team, as they are now 8 points off the pace, and they remain 5th on the log, levelled on points with Granada, while Valencia moved up to 13th on the La Liga table.

 

Do you think Barcelona will sack Koeman?
