Arsenal have been in good form in 2020.
Under Mikel Arteta’s guidance, Arsenal have gone unbeaten in their last nine games.
They are one of just two sides in Europe’s top five leagues to still be unbeaten this year.
They were looking to extend that run to 10 games when they welcomed Everton to the Emirates Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
But they fell behind after just one minute – and from a wonder goal by Dominic Calvert-Lewin.

A ball was pumped into the box and it ended in the young English striker acrobatically putting the ball in the net.
That’s not David Luiz’s finest moment. The Brazilian defender failed to clear his lines and he was duly punished.
It also could have been ruled out for a high boot, but the officials decided it was fine.
But still, what a finish. And what an awful start for Arsenal.
It turns out that goal was the quickest ever goal Arsenal have conceded at home in Premier League history.
But Arsenal reacted well to the early setback and found themselves level just before the half-hour mark.
Bukayo Saka has been turning heads with a humber of brilliant performances in recent weeks and he was the architect for their leveller.
The young Englishman got down the left-hand side and whipped a beautiful ball in for Eddie Nketiah, who could not miss from close range.
And the comeback was complete minutes later.
Luis was at fault for the first goal but he made amends as his through ball set Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang on goal.
And the Gabonese striker coolly finished – leading to Gary Neville comparing him to Thierry Henry.
Richarlison’s goal in the fourth minute of first-half stoppage time meant the game was all-square heading into the break.
But it was Arsenal who got the lightening start in the second 45 minutes, with Aubameyang netting his second within 30 seconds of the restart.
Arteta’s side endured a nervy end to the game as Everton through everything at them trying to get an equaliser.
But they just held firm to clinch another vital three points. The Gunners now move up to ninth, just four points behind Man United in fifth.
