Everton 2-2 Arsenal

ARSENAL, WHOSE BID for the title in recent seasons has so often been undone by poor away form, came from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at Everton.

The Gunners scored twice inside the final seven minutes at Goodison Park, with France striker Olivier Giroud’s 90th-minute goal ensuring a share of the points for Arsene Wenger’s side.

Everton went ahead in the 19th minute when unmarked defender Seamus Coleman headed in Gareth Barry’s cross at the far post before Steven Naismith, seemingly offside, made it 2-0 on the stroke of half-time after Romelu Lukaku had outmuscled Germany World Cup-winner Per Mertesacker in the build-up.

But then came Arsenal’s late recovery.

Aaron Ramsey turned in Santi Cazorla’s low centre before half-time substitute Giroud headed in Nacho Monreal’s cross.
