Insipid Arsenal frustrated at Everton

Yesterday I said that Arsenal needed to nullify the threat of Lukaku in order to secure the points away to Everton. What I neglected to mention is that they also needed to put in the required performance to deserve a victory.  Perhaps I've taken that for granted recently. We'd been unbeaten since the start of [...]

Everything seemed to be going so well yesterday, didn't it? Right up until that moment when Gabriel flim-flammed his leg by twisting his ankle and having to be carried off on a stretcher.

On the face of it, with the other results which all went in our favour this weekend barring Moneychester City, a draw against the eventual champions isn't the worst result in the world.
