INDONEWSTODAY.COM - In this match of the Premier League, James Tarkowski's second-half header gave Everton victory at home over Arsenal and moved them out of the Premier League relegation zone in new head coach Sean Dyche’s first game in charge.

The result moved Everton up to 17th, a point clear of Wolves and Bournemouth.

Segment 1: The Match

  • Centre-back Tarkowski found space among a crowd of players to nod the winner from close range and reward a much-improved performance from the Toffees, who had lost their previous four Premier League home games.
  • Bukayo Saka saw his volley from a corner cleared off the line by Conor Coady during the first half and Jordan Pickford also denied substitute Leandro Trossard as Arsenal pushed for an equaliser.
  • Everton deserved their win, almost taking the lead when Dominic Calvert-Lewin and Amadou Onana failed to connect effectively with crosses before Tarkowski found a more decisive response to a delivery from Dwight McNeil.

Segment 2: Dyche's impact on Everton

  • Dyche had wisely spoken about the need to ignore the "outside noise" surrounding Everton and had encouraged his players to provide anonymous feedback on their time at the club during his first week on the job.
  • On the pitch, Everton looked transformed in pursuit of their first win since October, troubling Arsenal with their energy from the start.
  • Tarkowski, making his 200th Premier League start, found a slither of space to give his side a deserved advantage, and Everton's first win in 10 games was not expected to come against the leaders.

Segment 3: Everton's future under Dyche

  • Dyche's appointment was met with indifference, but his start bodes highly promisingly for a more stable second half of the season.
  • The pragmatic 51-year-old is a wily enough manager to know that only results can improve the mood around the club.
  • Dyche defended Everton’s perceived lack of effort to bring in new faces before transfer deadline day, but the win against Arsenal has shown what he is capable of.

Segment 4: Arsenal's loss

  • Arsenal arrived with one defeat in this season’s Premier League but struggled to cope with Everton’s pressing for long spells of the game as they slipped to a third defeat in as many visits to Goodison Park.
  • Arsenal's push for an equaliser was in vain, and their hopes of sustaining their five-point advantage over second-placed Manchester City took a hit.
  • City can close the gap on Arsenal when they visit Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, but Arsenal will have a game in hand on the reigning champions after that match.

Segment 5: Conclusion

  • It's fair to say there were scenes of excitement around Goodison Park after Sean Dyche's impact on Everton, moving them out of the relegation zone and leaving the fans ecstatic.
  • Thanks for following the live coverage of the match, and stay tuned for a report and analysis.

Conclusion: In conclusion, James Tarkowski's second-half header gave Everton a much-needed victory over Arsenal, and the impact of Sean Dyche on the club is already showing positive signs for the future. The loss for Arsenal takes a hit on their hopes of sustaining their lead over Manchester City, and the excitement around Goodison Park after the win is a testament to Dyche's impact on the team.
