ARSENAL defeated Everton 2-0 with a dominant display at the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore Maryland.

Gabriel Jesus continued his goalscoring streak, which now stands at three goals in two matches, and Bukayo Saka sealed the win against a hapless Toffees side.

Mikel Arteta was also spotted berating Ainsley Maitland-Niles for giving the ball away as the Gunners' pre-season preparations ramped up.

    That's all from Baltimore

    Arsenal beat Everton in a friendly game at the M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland.

    A dominant performance in the first half was enough to seal the win for Mikel Arteta’s side against a hapless Toffees side.

    Gabriel Jesus opened the scoring on 33 minutes when a pinpoint corner-kick from the left by Cedric Soares found him completely unmarked in the far post from where he beat Jordan Pickford.

    Jesus then drove the ball down the left flank and flicked it perfectly to the far post where a slight touch from Gabriel Martinelli set Bukayo Saka up for the Gunners’ second of the night just three minutes later
