Everton vs Arsenal: Should Toffees’ goal have been disallowed due to Lucas Digne’s ‘foul throw’ in build-up?


Everton vs Arsenal: Should Toffees’ goal have been disallowed due to Lucas Digne’s ‘foul throw’ in build-up?

Arsenal supporters were claiming Everton were wrongly awarded their opening goal during Sunday’s Premier League clash at Goodison Park.

The Gunners fell behind on Merseyside in the opening 10 minutes, with Phil Jagielka reacting quickest in the area to prod the ball past Bernd Leno.

Jagielka scored what proved to be the winning goal on Sunday afternoon

Jagielka’s strike continued Arsenal’s remarkable record of failing to keep a single clean sheet away from home throughout the entire 2018/19 season so far.

They are, incredibly, the only team with this unfortunate achievement, despite two top flight sides – Huddersfield and Fulham – already being relegated.

The opening goal at Goodison Park came after a long throw from Lucas Digne caused chaos in the Arsenal area.
