MINA SUFFERS INJURY SETBACK AGAINST ARSENAL
Everton defender Terry Mona suffered an injury setback against Arsenal following his return to action. The Colombian international centre back made his return to the Evertonstarring XI for the Arsenal game after a lengthy injury layoff. The former Barcelona player had been out of action for several weeks before he made his injury return against the Gunners.
On his latest injury, Everton manager Rafael Benitez told reporters in his post-match press conference after the Arsenal game that his centre back picked up a calf problem. He was replaced by Mason Holgate after picking up the injury. Mina was not on the pitch when all the three goals were scored as Everton recovered from an half-time deficit to beat Arsenal 2-1 at home and return to winning ways on the Premier League scene.
Arsenal playmaker Martin Odegaard scored his second goal in as many games to give his team the lead during the Premier League encounter played at Goodison Park. His goal arrived on the stroke of half-time to add to the one he scored against hosts Manchester United in a 3-2 defeat for the Gunners last week. With his strike against Everton, Norwegian star Odegaard has now scored three goals in nine starts for Arsenal in this season’s Premier League.
Everton went on to score two times in the last ten minutes through Richarlison and Demarai Gray to win a Premier League match for the first time in almost three months. Their last win had been the 2-0 home win over Norwich City in September.
