Arsenal beats Everton 2-0 for 5th straight win under Emery
LONDON (AP) Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored in the space of three second-half minutes to lead Arsenal to a 2-0 win over Everton in the Premier League on Sunday.
It was a fifth straight victory in all competitions for Arsenal, signaling the methods of new manager Unai Emery are starting to kick in after he took over from long-time coach Arsene Wenger.
Lacazette curled a shot in off the far post to put Arsenal ahead in the 56th minute, before Aubameyang doubled the lead by slotting home from close range - albeit from an offside position following Aaron Ramsey's flick-on.
Everton had the better of the first half, with Brazil forward Richarlison - back after a three-match domestic ban for headbutting an opponent - proving dangerous down the left wing and forcing a good save from goalkeeper Petr Cech.
It leaves Everton, also under a new coach in Marco Silva, with just one win in six games.
For Arsenal, it was a first clean sheet under Emery despite center back Sokratis hobbling off in the first half.
