Premier League: Everton 0 Arsenal 1

By Score More Another disappointing home fixture at Goodison Park, resulting in yet another 1-0 defeat that leaves Everton firmly planted in the bottom three, still seeking their first win of the season. Heading into today's match, the Toffees were hoping to replicate their heroics from February when, in Sean Dyche's inaugural game as manager, they secured an unexpected but crucial one-goal victory. Regrettably, lightning didn't strike twice, and Everton never came close to repeating their previous feat. Instead, they succumbed to the same scoreline. Things could have been much worse if not for the heroics of Jordan Pickford, who pulled off a series of outstanding saves and some last-ditch defensive interventions.
