Brendan Galloway kicking himself after Everton's loss to Arsenal

Brendan Galloway had a good opportunity to score during Everton's 2-1 loss to Arsenal yesterday.

Brendan Galloway has told Everton's official site that he is kicking himself after his side lost 2-1 to Arsenal yesterday evening. 

The Toffees put in a creditable performance at the Emirates Stadium, but they were unable to collect any reward for their display, as they fell to a disappointing defeat. 

Galloway was one of the Everton players who was guilty of missing a chance in the second-half, when he appeared to be clean through on goal.

And the young defender said: "I'm kicking myself. I might be young but I know I should've scored that one and hopefully I'll get a chance soon and I can put one in to make up for it.

"I'm gutted because it was a chance to get us back in the game."

Galloway is yet to score a senior goal for Everton, and his uncomfortableness in-front of goal was rather highlighted by the way he took the chance.

The defender seemed to hesitate as the space opened up ahead of him, but he still put in a strong display during the contest.

Galloway has been one of Everton's best performers so far this season, and the academy graduate has shown that he has the potential to be a key player for the Tofffees' in the future.

Everton's loss to Arsenal leaves them in 10th place in the Premier League table, with their next match coming against Norwich City in the Capital One Cup.
