Right then, that's your lot from us tonight. 

But if you're just joining in, feel free to soak in all the drama below. And all that from just the two games... 

Until tomorrow then, when there'll be eight Premier League games coming your way... 

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Bournemouth

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe is asked about his side climbing up to eighth, the highest position they have ever been in.

"We're building nicely, this team is growing and getting better but we're in a really good position to kick on now. The club's come so far so quickly, I'm always looking to the next goal but it's good for other people to enjoy."

Abe Dein: The moment people start considering us serious contestants for the BPL, we do what we always do and prove them wrong! Typical!

Pascal van der Kamp: Here go all the Arsenal doubters. Incredible game, of which Arsenal were very much a part of. They'll bounce back  

'The team is alive'

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Leicester City

Leicester manager Claudio Ranieri: "The result is too severe against us because we created more chances than Bournemouth. I wanted a little more. A little more and we can score goals, recover more second balls. 

"The second half was much better. They scored when we deserved to score a goal. The team is alive and that is important for me.If we continue to fight at this level, sooner or later we will get a good result."

'A heroic display'

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Bournemouth

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe: "It didn't feel anything like routine. It was dramatic playing the champions, we know their qualities and the lads did particularly well. 

"It was a heroic defensive display. I thought we were magnificent in that respect. Marc Pugh is the model professional, he's been out of the squad and team. He has travelled around the country playing in development games and waited for his opportunity before taking it. It's important to bounce back in this league because there will be moments when you don't get what you want."

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

Phew. I'm surprised Koeman and Wenger had enough breath for all that after the finish at Goodison Park. 

Arsenal's first away defeat in nine months felt like a classic FA Cup quarter-final that went to extra time.

'We showed two faces'

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

Everton

Everton manager Ronald Koeman on BT Sport: "We showed two faces. The first face I hate that face because it is all about being nervous. You cannot lose the game like that. This was a good match though because we showed how we have to play - with commitment and aggression. You see the reaction of the crowd when you go for it and that's what we did. 

"On Monday, the game against Liverpool is of course a totally different situation now we go with three points in the pocket. We know we are strong at home and still unbeaten. If we play with the passion we showed tonight we will do well. We will learn from this match, it was a great result."

'We battled hard'

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

Arsenal

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, speaking to BBC Sport: "I don't think with five to go we deserved to lose the game but we were caught on two headers. I think especially on the first one we were guilty, the second one was from a corner. We controlled Romelu Lukaku well but two defenders scored. Maybe we made it easy for them when they became more physical. They played a real cup game tonight.

"They defended well even when we controlled the game. We created chances but not too many were clear-cut. We battled hard. We put everything in and the players are very disappointed."

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

PL table
.

So Chelsea can go six points clear at the top with victory at Sunderland tomorrow. 

'We fought face to face'

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

Everton

Everton manager Ronald Koeman, speaking to BBC Sport: "The first 20 minutes, that was really poor. We were very nervous and unsure. Every ball back. Mistakes and no aggression. After that we played face to face and showed unbelievable spirit to come back and we deserved the win. We were lucky in the last situation but we played great football and the support of the fans, it makes Goodison Park really difficult to beat us here.

"Sometimes it is difficult to understand why we start so poorly at the beginning. Of course there is some lack of confidence but show your personality. We showed big personality."

'We did fight'

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

Arsenal

Arsene Wenger, speaking to BT Sport: "It was a very physical game, we faced many physical challenges and that disturbed our game but we were a bit unlucky to lose as well. 

"We had chances in the first half, especially from Mesut. They defended well, they played a cup game, and at the end of the day it was two defenders in their team who scored.

"They were a bit scared at first but they got their confidence. We did fight, I cannot fault that."

'We put things right'

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

Everton defender Ashley Williams, on BT Sport: "This was about trying to put things right. You heard the fans and how they responded. I was disappointed with the goal we conceded, I should have done better, so I was desperate to get one at the other end."

Seamus Coleman: "We needed to put things right. We know we haven't been anywhere near good enough. It was important we put in a performance and worked hard for each other, and we did that tonight."

Abdul Said: So Chelsea could go 6 points clear and run away with it, one horse race.

Ray O'Brien: Got to say, as a gooner, that was a great, old fashioned Premier League slug fest. Bit off the pace, but fair play Everton.

no-one: Drawing Bayern in the CL? Check. Losing to a Roland Koeman team? Check. Welcome back, ye Arsenal of old.

Monster performance from Cook

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester (FT)

Mark Mitchener

BBC Sport at Vitality Stadium

Steve Cook may not know that he was referenced on a Cookie Monster video on the BBC Sport website this week, but the Bournemouth defender is one of the first players who manager Eddie Howe goes to hug at the final whistle as a clean sheet - and three huge points - are confirmed.

This time last year, Bournemouth beat the Premier League champions 1-0, a few days before a new Star Wars film was released at the cinema.

They've just done it again. Clearly the Force is with them.

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

What a finish to that game. Quite incredible. 

In the space of three seconds, after Phil Jagielka had been sent off, the free-kick went in, there was pinball in the box, two shots cleared off the line, Alexis Sanchez went down looking for a penalty, and Everton went up the pitch to nearly score with Petr Cech converted to a striker. 

Arsene Wenger shakes the hands of every player coming off that pitch, their hearts still racing.

Mings the merciless

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Mark Mitchener

BBC Sport at Vitality Stadium

As Callum Wilson's late injury sees Bournemouth switch to a flat back five to repel the waves of Leicester pressure, there's a feelgood substitution as Tyrone Mings takes the field for only his second Premier League appearance.

His first came on 29 August 2015 - also as a substitute here against Leicester - and lasted only a handful of minutes before a serious knee injury ruled him out of the rest of the 2015-16 season.

GREAT SAVE!

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

Madness. Insanity. Arsenal have an empty net after Petr Cech is in the Everton box to witness two shots cleared off the line by some frantic, desperate defending. 

The home side pour forward looking for a third but somehow are steered away from the Gunners' empty sticks... 

RED CARD

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

Phil Jagielka knows he has to bring Lucas Perez down - even if that's a second yellow for a red card. Will it matter?

We are into added time, just a few minutes left now surely. Will the Toffees hold on? 

Arsenal corner... Cech is up...

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Mark Mitchener

BBC Sport at Vitality Stadium

"Eddie had a dream, on minus 17," is the chant which booms around the stadium as Bournemouth's fans cast their minds back eight years to when they were languishing in the depths of the League Two relegation zone on the brink of financial oblivion, before Eddie Howe's appointment on New Year's Eve 2008 began their fairytale rise through the divisions.

Three home defenders desperately hack the ball clear in succession as the game enters stoppage time.

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 2-1 Arsenal

James McCarthy trots off to eat into the final few minutes, plus stoppage time, between Everton and such an important win. Does this stop the rot?

Lucas Perez is thrown on by Arsenal.

GREAT SAVE!

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

The final throes. 

Artur Boruc is Bournemouth's hero as he throws himself at Leonardo Ulloa to deny the striker from point-blank range. What a finish. Into injury time we go.

Three minutes added on.

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Mark Mitchener

BBC Sport at Vitality Stadium

Leicester have rolled the dice with three attacking substitutions and are now playing three at the back against lone forward Callum Wilson, while Bournemouth have flooded the midfield engine room with the introduction of Dan Gosling.

The Foxes now have four or five forward raiders when they attack, with Shinji Okazaki playing in the "hole" behind Jamie Vardy and Leonardo Ulloa, with Riyad Mahrez and Ahmed Musa wide.

The Cherries defenders have their tin hats on as the game enters the dying minutes, but Steve Cook is proving to be a rock at the back for them.

GOAL - Everton 2-1 Arsenal

Ashley Williams (86 mins)

A fine save from Petr Cech to block a header from a corner just results in another one for Everton. 

This time there's no stopping the final approach of an Everton tide that has been growing for a while now. Ashley Williams towers above the Arsenal defence to power in his first goal for the club from Ross Barkley's hanging corner. 

Is there time for the Gunners to steal one back?

CLOSE!

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Brilliant. Fantastic last-ditch slide from Steve Cook - again - to preserve the Bournemouth lead. He launches himself across the turf to deny Shinji Okazaki. 

YELLOW CARD

Everton 1-1 Arsenal

Canny play from James McCarthy to buy a throw off Nacho Monreal. Seamus Coleman delivers, it breaks to Idrissa Gueye, but he can't quite find the cute pass he was looking for behind the Arsenal back line. 

Laurent Koscielny mis-times a slide on McCarthy and is punished with a yellow.

This could spin either way. Arsenal losing a little composure and gloss as Everton start to believe they can scramble together a winner.

YELLOW CARD

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Wes Morgan knows the game. He knows the danger Bournemouth have on the break and that, now his side are searching desperately for the winner, he has to haul Jack Wilshere down and put the yellow card down as collateral damage. 

SUBSTITUTION

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Less than 10 minutes for Leicester to find an equaliser at Bournemouth. 

They're throwing them all forward now. Striker Leonardo Ulloa replaces defender Robert Huth in their last change.

SUBSTITUTION

Everton 1-1 Arsenal

Ronald Koeman taking a gamble. Dominic Calvert-Lewin, a 19-year-old striker signed from Sheffield United in the summer, is taking his place in the Everton comeback. This is his first game for the club...

Everton 1-1 Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez plays it up to Olivier Giroud and darts into space only he can sense for the return pass. But it doesn't come as an Everton leg pokes the ball away and into Blue hands again. 

The ball can't stick though and Sanchez pops up once more to feed Alex Iwobi at the near post, his stabbed effort flashing wide. 

Is this the end of the home side's good spell?

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

Mark Mitchener

BBC Sport at Vitality Stadium

Riyad Mahrez, who was substituted at half-time here at Bournemouth last season and had a penalty saved by Artur Boruc in the return game, has largely been a peripheral figure for Leicester this evening.

The newly crowned BBC African Footballer of the Year has at times drifted infield to see more of the ball, while he's not got much change out of Cherries left-back Charlie Daniels, whose buccaneering forward runs have kept Mahrez pinned back in his own half on occasions.

CLOSE!

Bournemouth 1-0 Leicester

What a chance for the equaliser. Robert Huth nods a deep corner just wide of Artur Boruc's near post, holding off real pressure with great strength. Maybe that was just enough to put him off his stride.

Before that, Marc Albrighton is taken off for Ahmed Musa. Leicester are going for this.

Everton 1-1 Arsenal

The home crowd are roaring their team on. Romelu Lukaku fires a shot into Arsenal legs and Seamus Coleman's follow-up is blocked. 

Pressure. But can Everton make it tell?

CHANCE!

Everton 1-1 Arsenal

The pace, the power, but little control. Romelu Lukaku absolutely steams past Gabriel down the Everton left wing but he's into runaway train territory by the time he reaches the box and can't quite manage the cut-back Kevin Mirallas was waiting for. 

Double change for the Gunners. Olivier Giroud and Alex Iwobi are on for Theo Walcott (anonymous, largely) and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Everton are changing up too. Kevin Mirallas replaces Aaron Lennon. Can the Belgian add the spark the home side are missing?

Olivier Giroud's also taking a jog down the line.

BBC Sport at Vitality Stadium

A couple of worrying signs for Bournemouth - goalkeeper Artur Boruc's distribution has been wayward, to say the least, this half - while defender Nathan Ake has been holding his lower back since tangling with Jamie Vardy just now.

But it's an attacking change by Eddie Howe - with top scorer Callum Wilson coming on.
