Arsenal 0-0 Everton – Premier League – 16th April 2013

Everton produced a muscular and hard-working display at the Emirates on Tuesday night to halt Arsenal’s winning streak and give fellow top four hopefuls Chelsea and Spurs something to cheer about.

With Marouane Fellaini outstanding in central midfield, the visitors battled hard and were the better side in the first-half, with Steven Pienaar blasting over from close-range, although Darron Gibson, already on a yellow, should’ve seen red for a rugby tackle on Theo Walcott. However, for some reason, referee Neil Swarbrick failed to punish the Irishman.

After the break, the Gunners started to dominate, but with Olivier Giroud in a wasteful mood ( he also missed a great chance in the first half) and Jack Wilshere not yet 100% fit, the home side struggled to unlock a superbly disciplined Everton back four.

The result won’t have pleased either Arsene Wenger and David Moyes, with the race for a Champions League spot wide open.

    So Arsenal didn’t get the help from the linesman as they did on Saturday and failed to win, can’t win without help.

    Haha it was a 100% penalty. Yesterday the ref didn’t show the same criteria and helped Everton. Gibson should’ve been sent off. End of the story!

    So you think Arsenal need help from officials to win? Tell me boy, who do you support? United? Or are you a City fan? Pretty cheap coming from you
