Everton v Arsenal
Sunday’s match at Goodison Park always have the right ingredients to turn toxic.
Both Everton and Arsenal’s fans arrived to the game in negative moods about their clubs.
Ronald Koeman seems to be on the verge of losing his job at Everton after an awful start to the season.
As for Arsenal, many of their fans wish Arsene Wenger would be on the verge of losing his job. But the Frenchman is set to be with the Gunners for another two years yet.
Wayne Rooney scores
Arsenal started the better of the sides.
Jordan Pickford needed to be on the top of his game to deny Alexandre LAcazette from point blank range. Mesut Ozil looked at his creative best in the early stages against the Toffees.
But it was Everton who scored first.
Fifteen years after announcing himself to the world, Wayne Rooney curled Everton ahead against Arsenal.

Everyone hates Granit Xhaka
As soon as Rooney scored, the hate towards Arsenal midfielder Granit Xhaka started.
Xhaka was accused of picking his nose last week at Watford at Tom Cleverley scored an injury time winner.
This angle makes it even worse. Xhaka was picking his nose as Watford scored the winner. LOL pic.twitter.com/8jvDeS4Z4U

Against Everton, it was Xhaka who lost the ball in the Gunners midfield before Rooney scored.
Idrissa Gueye took the ball of the Swiss international and Rooney punished Arsenal.
Should Jack Wilshere be playing instead of Xhaka? Why isn’t Wenger giving the England midfielder a chance, especially after he starred against Red Star Belgrade.

Desperately poor from Xhaka but not sure he will be impressed by the pass from Mertesacker either

Xhaka loses the ball, the rest is history….

It doesn’t matter how many assists Xhaka gets this season. He’ll always be at least -1 in goals created vs. cause of conceding

Get Xhaka OFF and Wilshere ON.

Xhaka's got the Čech issue where he massively needs to be dropped but I'd rather gouge my eyes out than endure the theoretical replacement.

I still rate Xhaka but pretty amazed he hasn't been dropped yet. Been at fault for a goal nearly every game this season.

Xhaka is 2 slow and clumsy. Wilshere should start ahead of him
