Everton 0-2 Arsenal

All Arsenal eyes now turn to Selhurst Park for Crystal Palace v Leicester. You can follow that game here and keep across all of Saturday's games here.

That is all from me. I'll see thee.

'A really, really poor game from Everton'

Everton 0-2 Arsenal

Pat Nevin

Former Everton winger at Goodison Park for 5 live Sport

"Subdued and disjointed from Everton. A really, really poor game from them today.

"I expected Arsenal to tire near the end of the game which is what happened, but Welbeck, Iwobi and Ozil all looked good. Over 90 minutes Arsenal were the only team who looked likely to win this game."

"One step forward, two steps back"

Kevin Kilbane

Ex-Everton and Republic of Ireland winger at Anfield for Radio 5 live

"It seems to be the same with Everton, one step forward, two steps back. Great result last weekend against Chelsea, getting themselves to a cup semi-final but today it's been the same old Everton. Wide open, poor defensively and it's been fairly comfortable for Arsenal. Arsenal have fully deserved to win this game."

FULL-TIME

Everton 0-2 Arsenal

Mark Clattenburg puts Everton out of their misery. They were awful.

Arsenal were brilliant in the first half and as good as they needed to be in the second. It keeps the Gunners in the hunt for the league title at the end of a week that nearly obliterated their season.

We've had four of the added five minutes. 

CLOSE!

Olivier Giroud goes close. Calum Chambers sets him up with a neat pass inside the box but he slices his effort past the near post and into the side-netting.

'It has been infuriating by Everton'

"I expected Everton to push Arsenal as they tired, up the tempo, spread the play. But it just hasn't happened at all. Romelu Lukaku has had absolutely no service. It has been infuriating."

Everton 0-2 Arsenal

An incredibly rare event - a sight of goal for Romelu Lukaku, who heads down Ramiro Funes Mori's cross inside the box but straight at David Ospina, who saves easily.

Everton 0-2 Arsenal

Arsenal have not been as sharp this half, but they haven't had to be. They have managed this game with ease, having done all the damage in the first half.

Barring a tiny period when David Ospina was struggling following a knock, Everton have offered nothing.

SUBSTITUTION

'The Gunners are unlucky'

"Giroud is absolutely furious, and I don't think he's the one who made the foul. But actually, I don't think there was a foul there - Jagielka just fell. The Gunners are unlucky."

Gabriel has his critics but he has been really good today. He prevents Romelu Lukaku getting a kick again with a sliding tackle on the edge of his own box to intercept a pass towards the Belgian striker.

The ball is in the Everton net from an Olivier Giroud header from a corner, but it won't count. The French striker is adjudged to have fouled Phil Jagielka before beating Joel Robles to the ball. Just over five minutes remain.

Everton 0-2 Arsenal

Arsenal are furious. And rightly so. Olivier Giroud wins a header and looks to then charge into the box to accompany Alexis Sanchez but is denied by an off-the-ball trip by Ramiro Funes Mori, who gets away with it. Bit of a cheap shot by the home defender.

Seamus Coleman and Francis Coquelin square up to each other, requiring an intervention from Mark Clattenburg. Think that was just a bit of frustration on Coleman's part because Coquelin did nothing but challenge for a ball and win a goal-kick.

SUBSTITUTION

Fresh legs for Arsenal as well. Mesut Ozil and Danny Welbeck depart (the former hobbling after getting clipped by John Stones), with Olivier Giroud and Kieran Gibbs coming on. 15 minutes to go.

Everton come again and the ball falls to Tom Cleverley but his angled drive from the edge of the box is blocked. This is the home side's best spell. By far.

Ospina is in pain. He winces after delivering a kick down the pitch. It is not Arsenal who are going to make a change, though. Everton have Gerard Deulofeu stripped.

'Everton need to get the ball into the box'

"Ospina is holding his back, holding his thigh. He does not look OK. But football is a harsh game - Everton need to get the ball into the box."

Everton 0-2 Arsenal

There you go. A corner is swung over and Ospina is caught in no man's land. Fortunately for the Gunners, Phil Jagielka's header clears the bar. There is hope now for the home side, given to them by one unfortunate injury.

Everton 0-2 Arsenal

Ospina is up and is going to give it a go. Laurent Koscielny has to take over goal-kick duties initially, though. Everton will want to test Ospina ASAP.

Gunners reserve keeper Matt Macey is warming up. This could be a Premier League debut if Ospina is too badly hurt. There are worse circumstances for a young keeper to get chucked in, but he'll still be nervous.

Finally, Everton produce a final ball to threaten Arsenal as Aaron Lennon's low cross is there for Romelu Lukaku to attack. David Ospina gets there first and heads off danger, but the keeper also takes a mighty clattering from the big forward. Medic!

Even when an Arsenal player miscontrols the ball, he comes away with it in a tackle. I'm not surprised the home fans are angry. The least you expect is some heart.

Everton 0-2 Arsenal

More screams of fury from the Goodison Park stands as Seamus Coleman's low cross to the edge of the box is cleared by an Arsenal man, without a blue short anywhere near him. There is 30 minutes to go. And you can't see anything but an Arsenal win.

Woeful Everton

Oh, that is a wasted opportunity. Arsenal drive forward and Mesut Ozil is in acres of space on the left, but Alex Iwobi's pass goes behind the German and out of play.

Everton 0-2 Arsenal

What is Phil Jagielka doing?! He leaves the ball for John Stones, who also leaves it, and has to slide in to prevent Alex Iwobi having a clear run on goal. It's Chuckle Brothers defending. To me, to you.

Joel Robles hammers a goal-kick straight out of play. This is just woeful.

The groans from the home fans are growing in volume. Leighton Baines slices a horrible ball forward and straight to an Arsenal man. The Toffees look thoroughly lost.

John Stones' first act is to horribly miscue a back-pass to Joel Robles, but he is able to recover to prevent Danny Welbeck getting in on goal.

Romelu Lukaku finally has a chance to run with the ball, which he does well down the left, but after beating Gabriel his low cross into the box is cut out and cleared.

There is a small insight into the route Everton must take to try and get back into this. Hit Rom! Hit Rom!
