  1. The full-time whistle goes and there is to be no winner, but the two teams will have very different emotions after a dramatic encounter. Everton looked in control at 2-0 but two late goals from Arsenal have rescued a 2-2 draw and left Goodison Park stunned.

  2. 90+1

    Is there time for Arsenal to snatch an unlikely win? Wenger certainly seems to think so on the touchline as Cazorla stings the palms of Howard from 20 yards.

  3. 90

    GOAL! Giroud levels it for Arsenal. Ramsey's cross from the right is too deep but Monreal keeps it in and whips in a much better delivery, which Giroud buries with an excellent header.

  4. 88

    Naismith does well to hold the ball up for Everton and induce a foul from Cazorla in the Arsenal half, relieving the pressure for the hosts.

  5. 86

    Everton have looked comfortable for most of the evening but suddenly there is a spring in Arsenal's step as they search for an equaliser.

  6. 85

    Everton's third and final change sees Atsu come on for Mirallas.

  7. 83

    GOAL! Ramsey gives Arsenal a lifeline. Cazorla is the provider with a good low cross from the left and the Welsh midfielder shows great determination to get to the ball before a couple of defenders and turn it in from close range.

  8. 82

    Ozil has not had a particularly good day and his latest cross from the left is neatly cleared by Barry.

  9. 81

    Campbell looks very eager to impress he runs into traffic as he tries to dribble into the Everton area.

  10. 80

    Ramsey slices an ambitious shot well wide from 20 yards but that is a rare effort on goal from Arsenal, with Everton good value for their lead and in truth looking the most likely to score next.

  11. 79

    Mertesacker may not be the quickest but he is able to stretch out a long leg to knock the ball out of play before Coleman can cut inside from the right.

  12. 78

    Flamini dives in on Naismith and it is a poor challenge which rightly sees him given a yellow card.

  13. 77

    McGeady is in business straight away as he links up with Naismith, who ends up hitting a rasping shot high into the stands.

  14. 76

    Lukaku, who had reportedly been a fitness doubt before kick-off, receives a tremendous ovation as he makes way for McGeady.

  15. 74

    Arsenal make a double change as Cazorla and Campbell are sent on to replace Oxlade-Chamberlain and Wilshere.

  16. 73

    Coleman jinks his way past Monreal before delivering a decent cross from the right, but Debuchy heads it away.

  17. 71

    Barry bursts forward on an excellent run before cutting back a very menacing cross, but Ramsey shows good strength to get the ball before Mirallas can pull the trigger.

  18. 70

    Lukaku is running riot down Everton's right but Mertesacker manages to get back and block his shot from a tight angle.

  19. 69

    Howard is forced into his first save of the match as he comes out to smother a Giroud shot. The game is really becoming stretched now.

  20. 68

    Lukaku shows his strength to break free down the Arsenal right in a manner reminiscent of Everton's second goal, but on this occasion he dwells on the ball too long and eventually tries a needless back-heel which is blocked.
