The final whistle goes and Everton have salvaged a 1-1 draw from their trip to Arsenal after Gerard Deulofeu cancelled out Mesut Ozil's opener. It was a terrific game and both sides will feel they could have won, but the Gunners will still be satisfied to push their lead at the top back to five points. Everton, meanwhile, remain fifth.
GOAL! Gerard Deulofeu equalises for Everton. The youngster drives an excellent finish beyond Wojciech Szczesny from 15 yards after a cross from the left had been missed by Romelu Lukaku's attempted overhead kick.
GOAL! Mesut Ozil makes it 1-0 to Arsenal. Tomas Rosicky floats a good ball over the back post and Theo Walcott heads it back across goal. Olivier Giroud fails to connect with his attempted shot but Ozil is able to slam his effort into the roof of the net to give the Gunners the lead.
Kevin Mirallas makes way for Gerard Deulofeu as Everton make their second change of the afternoon.
Tim Howard is shown a yellow card for time-wasting as he takes longer than the referee would like over his goal-kick.
Everton's first change sees Steven Pienaar replaced by Leon Osman.
Arsene Wenger shuffles his pack with a triple substitution, as Theo Walcot, Mathieu Flamini and Tomas Rosicky come on for Santi Cazorla, Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere.
James McCarthy becomes the second Everton player to have his name put in the book following a high boot on Aaron Ramsey in midfield.
Jamal has been in touch with this half-time opinion; 'Very good first half. Hopefully Everton clinch 3 points as it looks like Arsenal are getting into the game.'
The half-time whistle goes and the score remains goalless, but it has been a cracking 45 minutes. Everton have played exceptionally at times to boss midfield and dominate possession, but they have not made Wojciech Szczesny work enough and there were some ominous signs in the final stages as Arsenal increased the tempo and carved out a couple of decent chances.
Mesut Ozil was barged over by Gareth Barry in the build-up to that last chance and cheers erupt as the Everton midfielder is shown a yellow card.
David predicts: 'Everton played really well to beat Manchester United, but we all know that they beat a team that is not firing on all cylinders. Arsenal on the other hand are playing above expectation, so Arsenal will win this game simply because they are at home and also because they are a better side than Everton.'
Pete from Mansfield says: 'I'm a Newcastle United fan and I've given up trying to predict matches in the Premiership this season, it's wide open. If both teams play to their potential, this could be the game of the season - two great sides. I would like to see Arsenal lift the trophy this season - I think it would be well deserved as they are so good to watch.'
Kelechi says: 'Both teams have been working very hard. I predict a very tough and thrilling game but I think Arsenal will grab all points at the end.'
Zeeshan writes: 'I'm surprised that Deulofeu did not start but Everton have to win this game to be top four contenders. I will be happy with a draw just anything to stop Arsenal. 2-0 to the Toffees.'
Jamal Mohammed says: 'I think this game will be end to end and Everton will win 3-2 because of Jenkinson and not Sagna.'
'This is Stewart MacLaren from a warm & windy Torrevieja in Spain saying that Everton will draw 2-2 with Arsenal at The Emirates Stadium this afternoon with good goals from Kevin Miralles & Romelu Lukaku. The key players will be Aaron Ramsey for Arsenal & Romelu Lukaku for Everton.'
