FA Cup favorites Arsenal facing defensive crisis for final against Chelsea

Somewhere in West London, Diego Costa is licking his luscious lips and twitching his glorious eyebrows at the prospect of facing an Arsenal defense without their best player on Saturday. On Tuesday, the FA upheld Laurent Koscielny’s three-match suspension — it was a long-shot appeal, even in the random world of FA appeals — which, combined with Gabriel Paulista’s potentially serious knee ligament injury and Shkodran Mustafi’s questionable status thanks to concussion symptoms, could leave Arsenal with extant obelisk Per Mertesacker (and whatever a Rob Holding may be) anchoring...

Laurent Koscielny to miss FA Cup final

Laurent Koscielny to miss FA Cup final

Because he did a stupid, that’s why. As we all saw on Sunday, Laurent Koscielny did a very, very dumb thing. He went in for a tackle he didn’t need to leave his feet for, in doing so he scythed down Romelu Lukaku, and was immediately - and correctly - red carded for his trouble. It wasn’t a Roy Keane-level tackle, there was no malice or intent to injure in it, but it was really stupid of him to do. We suspected that he’d miss the FA Cup final, and that was confirmed today: BREAKING: Laurent Koscielny to serve three-match ban & will miss @FA Cup final. Defender suspended after FA...

Arsenal 3 Everton 1: The Toffees close out their season with a loss

Arsenal 3 Everton 1: The Toffees close out their season with a loss

Three thoughts from a season ending loss to Arsenal Ending the season on a low note Everton’s 2016-17 season can easily be described as up and down. A blistering start was followed by a serious down turn and finally ended with a mixed bag of good or shoddy performances. Everton’s performance against Arsenal was certainly the latter. The real shame of this match was that Everton had their fair share of opportunities to seize control. Going down one goal early in an away match is never an ideal situation, but Everton were bolstered by Laurent Koscielny’s 14th minute red card. Despite...

Man of the Match and Player Grades Poll for Everton at Arsenal

Vote on the player performances from today’s game Everton ended the 2016-17 season with a disjointed 3-1 loss away at Arsenal. Everton looked overwhelmed to begin the game and within minutes of the start Arsenal were ahead. Hector Bellerin poked home at the far post with the Gunners lining up to score. And then Enner Valencia was brought down in full flight by Laurent Koscielny, who received a straight red card to even up the game. Ronald Koeman went on to make a tactical change at the quarter mark of the game, bringing on Ross Barkley for Tom Davies. However, despite the Blues finding...
