Arsenal 1 - 2 Everton

Our 14-match unbeaten Premier League run came to an end on Tuesday after Ashley Williams headed in a late winner for Everton.
It was a frustrating end to a match that had seen Alexis opened the scoring - his 14th of a stellar season – with a curling free kick that beat Marten Stekelenburg.
It was exactly the start we would have hoped for against a home side low on confidence, but we could not build on this early advantage.
Ronald Koeman’s side grew in ambition the longer the first half went on and eventually equalised on the stroke of half time when Seamus Coleman headed in from close range.
We improved after the interval, and Mesut Ozil had a great chance to re-establish the lead but crashed a curling shot over the bar after good work from Alexis.
There was a real zip about the game as both sides went all-out for victory, but clear-cut chances remained at a premium.
Ross Barkley fired one wide for the hosts, before Alex Iwobi did the same at the other end but there was nothing between the sides in the closing stages.
But there was to be one late twists when Williams powered home a header with four minutes remaining to condemn the Gunners to a damaging defeat.
