  1. Good night

    And on that note we shall say farewell. See you in the morning!

  2. What's next?

    Arsenal play Villarreal in the Europa League on Thursday, while Everton don't play again until May - Villa at home on 1 May.

  3. 'Home form unacceptable'

    Arsenal 0-1 Everton


    Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to Sky Sports: "We were the better team but there are certain decisions that we can't control.

    "To disallow a penalty 15 seconds before - [we had] eight or nine touches [after Nicolas Pepe was offside] - I saw it 10 times and I don't get it. It can be taken the way they want. Zero control. Somebody has to explain that.

    "We were the better team. We lacked some clear-cut chances and the edge in the final third. They are very well organised but we conceded the goal in the wrong moment and when we had the penalty but it wasn't given."

    On Bernd Leno's own goal: "It's an own goal and we know we have to do better."

    On his team's home form this season: "It's terrible, unacceptable."

  4. 'The penalty is clear'

    Arsenal 0-1 Everton


    Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta to BBC Sport: "On the pitch performance wise we were the better team, we controlled the game and we had some opportunities and openings. We had a clear penalty that was disallowed somehow and then we score an own goal.

    "The penalty is clear, those decisions have been made after, I don't know how or who by, we cannot see their faces to explain it. It's the second time in two weeks.

    "I can see the images 20 times and I don't get it.

    "Errors are part of football, we conceeded an own goal that defined the game at the end. We didn't create enough against a team that is well organised, we lacked clarity in the final third.

    "We need to go through the disapopintment and focus our energy, the semi-final is more than crucial for us. I don't want to use any excuses, I understand the protests."

  7. 'Finally I can say we are back'

    Arsenal 0-1 Everton


    Everton manager Carlo Ancelotti to BBC Sport: "It was really important to stay attached to the top of the table. The performance was good. It's all good news tonight and this gives us confidence for the next games.

    "It [ending the 25-year wait for a win at Arsenal] is an unbelievable gift for our supporters. A good performance - not top, but solid. We tried to play if possible and we were lucky to score a goal.

    "Arsenal played a good game and maybe they played better with the ball but defensively we were really solid.

    "Finally I can say we are back. We had a difficult moment with lots of injuries but this victory gives us more motivation for the next games."

  8. 'Painful'

    Arsenal 0-1 Everton


    Arsenal midfielder Thomas Partey to Sky Sports: "It was painful. We created chances and they scored a goal with the chance they had, we have to forget about today and don't make more mistakes. That has cost us a lot of games.

    "It is part of football, the own goal has happened. We must be prepared to win the next game. We want to win all games."

  9. 'We needed that'

    Arsenal 0-1 Everton


    Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti to Sky Sports: "A good result, important, we are still attached to the top of the table. We needed that. We keep fighting, we played a good game with difficulties.

    "Defensively we were good, I am satisifed.To be honest it should have been a draw, Arsenal had more control of the ball. We were not clinical in possession. We deserved to win our last few games which were draws so we have those points back.

    "Jordan Pickford did really well with a good save at the end, he was comfortable, good with the ball.

    "After five games without a win it was an important victory. The race will be decided on the last game."

    Those of you tweeting in suggesting Jose Mourinho for Arsenal are joking, right?

    Abu: Villa, Wolves and now Everton doing the double over Arsenal. The levels and expectation have dropped so far at this club. Club need to act now and get rid of Arteta.

    Adam Salter: Diabolical. Absolutely diabolical. Criminal even. Attack was blunt, and that mistake at the back that led to the goal? That was our season rammed into 90 minutes.

  12. Post update


    Everton (10 away wins) reach double figures in top flight away wins in a single campaign for the first time since 1986-87 (10). That was the season of the Toffees' most recent top flight title.

    Just need to iron out that home form then.

  13. Not pretty reading

    Arsenal 0-1 Everton


    Arsenal have lost 13 of their 33 Premier League matches this campaign (W13-D7-L13). Only in 2017-18 (13) have the Gunners lost as many PL fixtures in a 38-match season.

    Arsenal have lost nine of their 25 home fixtures in all competitions this season (W11-D5-L9). It is the most competitive home defeats the Gunners have suffered in a single campaign since 1929-30 (9).

    Arsenal have lost seven of their 17 Premier League home matches this campaign (W6-D4-L7). Only in 1992-93 (7) have the Gunners lost as many PL home fixtures in a single season (42-match campaign at Highbury).

    Arsenal have failed to score in 12 different Premier League matches this season. Not since 1994-95 (14, 42-match season) have the Gunners failed to net in more different PL matches in a single campaign.

  15. 'A massive win'

    Arsenal 0-1 Everton


    Everton defender Mason Holgate to Sky Sports: "It's brilliant. In the last few weeks we've been hit and miss so to dig deep and get the win is massive. Arsenal want the same thing as we do so to take the points from them is massive. We've got to be consistent now.

    "It's the best looking goal I've seen...It wasn't the prettiest but a huge win. We have turned up in big games all season but the games we should be winning we haven't. It's down to us."

    All a bit fractious between the two camps at full-time but the sight of Big Dunc getting out of his seat calms it all down.

    BIG win for Everton! Who win at Arsenal for the first time since BritPop.

    A bad day, a rubbish week, for Arsenal.

    Bernd Leno is up! You love to see it. He nearly wins a header and stays up as well, eventually conceding a free-kick as he goes up for a header.


    Arsenal 0-1 Everton

    Oh good save! Right at the end! Gabriel Martinelli gets around Seamus Coleman inside the area and toepokes in a shot that is heading in but Jordan Pickford claws it out.
