Arsenal, the leaders, suffered its second loss this season in the English Football League, at the injured Everton 0-1, so that the Liverpool city team achieved a positive shock after the appointment of its new coach, Sean Dyche, to replace Frank Lampard, on Saturday in the 22nd stage.
And with the goal of the center of defense, James Tarkovsky, from a header after a corner kick (60), “Toffees” achieved their first victory in the league since last October, and temporarily moved away from the relegation zone.
Manchester City, the defending champion in the last two seasons, will be able to reduce the difference with Arsenal (50 points) to two points, if it beats fifth-placed Tottenham on Sunday in a strong match, but it played more matches than the “gunners”.
Arsenal, seeking a first league title since 2004 during the era of French coach Arsene Wenger, wasted valuable points in his quest to get close to the title, noting that he will meet City in a summit match this February.
