Arsenal vs Everton LIVE! Pre-season friendly match stream
Mikel Arteta’s Gunners kick off their tour of the United States with a friendly against Everton in Baltimore as both clubs look to show their mettle ahead of the new Premier League campaign – and put on a show for the locals.
A goal-fest victory over Nurnberg began Arsenal’s pre-season in style as Gabriel Jesus scored twice in a comeback victory. Fans both at home and across the pond will be keen to see how the Brazilian fares alongside fellow new signings Fabio Vieira, Matt Turner and Marquinhos.
Tonight’s match is Everton’s first game of note since they narrowly avoided relegation and entered an uncertain summer under Frank Lampard. Shorn of Richarlison, the Toffees have so far only recruited James Tarkowski from Burnley with money tight and expectations low for another potentially difficult season at Goodison Park.

Recap the action with our match report.
A bit of a scuffle to finish off here as Tarkowski upsets Pepe before launching a hefty tackle on Lokonga to take a yellow card – and that’s the game!
90 mins: Gordon launches the free-kick into Lokonga in the wall and Arsenal rebuff the second ball in.
Up the other end, Pepe fires in a shot at Crellin as three minutes goes up on the board.
89 mins: A comfortable period on the ball for Arsenal ends with slack play from Holding and Everton come forward, winning a foul in the middle as Mari is booked for downing Iwobi.
84 mins: Bellerin on a curious run into the box and the Spaniard seems to be a bit confused as to what to do with it, after throwing out a loose stepover.
Eventually, he bundles into an Everton defender and concedes a foul.
80 mins: Gbamin goes into the book for felling Nketiah, the ball into the box seeing Tarkowski calmly shrug off Mari to let the ball go into touch.
Muted penalty appeals fall on deaf ears.
77 mins: Once again, Crellin has to come off his line to deal with a wayward backpass from his defence.
Nketiah is looking eager and beats his man with a nice turn onto his right foot, taking aim from 20 yards and earning a sturdy block to clear the ball.
75 mins: A fresh impetus about Arsenal now before Mari picks out a hopeful long ball all the way through to the goalkeeper.
Elneny then almost finds Pepe with a fine through ball that draws out the Toffees shot-stopper to hoof clear.
70 mins: We’ll get underway with a fresh set of Arsenal players on the pitch. Nelson, Mari and Walters are among them.
68 mins: Time for the water break of the half and Arteta is straight into a huddle to dish out some forthright instructions.
