    • Arsenal
    • - Up next, Chelsea v Sunderland. Click this link for full coverage!
    • 90+4' That's it! Arsenal hang on to beat Everton and go second in the Premier League table!
    • 90+3' Coleman is on the wrong end of another decision, adjudged to have pushed Rosicky. Yellow card.
    • 90+2' Coleman claims he has been brought down by Rosicky, but referee Webb signals a throw for Arsenal.
    • 90+1' FOUR MINUTES of added time to be played.
    • 90' Arsenal: Emmanuel Eboue comes on for Marouane Chamakh.
    • 89' GOAL!!! TIM CAHILL REDUCES THE DEFICIT!! Pienaar's cross from the left his headed back by Saha (who is climbing all over his man) and Cahill finishes from close range.
    • 88' Another good save from Fabianski, who flings himself to his right to palm a Saha shot away for a corner!
    • 87' Baines wastes two corners, hitting both low to the near post, and Arsenal clear their lines.
    • 86' Fabianski called into action again as a dangerous diagonal cross comes in... well held by the Arsenal keeper.
    • 85' Pienaar... hits it over everyone and out for a goal kick. A real waste.
    • 84' Sagna fouls Saha just outside the box and this is a real chance for the Toffees.
    • 83' PIENAAR!! Hits a rasping shot from the edge of the box, but it is straight at Fabianski who parries the ball and Djourou boots it to safety.
    • 81' The corner comes to Distin on the far side, but he heads inocuously over.
    • 80' GOOD SAVE FABIANSKI!! He reacts quickly, springing to his left to tip Beckford's shot behind for a corner!
    • 79' Rodwell attempts to dribble through the middle and is quickly dispossessed. At least he's having a go...
    • 78' Ambitious long-range attempt by Rodwell, but he is never going to hit the target from there...
    • 77' Everton have had very little success down the left side - a good game at both ends of the pitch for Bacary Sagna.
    • 76' Good defending from Arsenal to clear the corner. They are looking very solid - much more so than for most of this season.
    • 75' Coleman is well forward down the right again, but Alex Song does a good job of charging down his cross, albeit at the cost of a corner.
    • 73' Everton simply cannot get hold of the ball at the moment. It's tough going for them at the moment.
    • 72' Arsenal are playing keep ball and trying to frustrate their opponents - and they are doing a pretty good job of it.
    • 70' Yakubu and Beckford both go up front - Coleman drops back a little. Strangely, since he has been an effective attacker...
    • 69' Everton: Yakubu and Jermaine Beckford come on for Mikel Arteta and Phil Neville.
    • 68' Fabregas hits a low free-kick from long range. Takes a touch ut is easy for Howard to field.
    • 67' Arsenal: Off comes Andrei Arshavin, and Tomas Rosicky replaces him.
    • 66' Denilson goes for goal from 25 yards, but pulls his shot well wide.
    • 65' It seems that Saha shot came off Alex Song's shoulder, by the way.
    • 64' Coleman with a chance to cross from the right... over his man.
    • 63' Pienaar pulls the ball back to the edge of the box for SAHA!! His shot is blocked by Song, but did he use his chest or his arm? It is not immediately clear from the replay...
    • 62' Arsenal have close close to putting this result beyond doubt twice... Everton all at sea defensively.
    • 61' WHAT A MISS!! Fabregas plays the ball low in front of goal, Chamakh slides in and puts it over from a couple of yards!!
    • 60' Great run from nasri who uses sheer pace to sprint past Jagielka... his shot brings a fine save from Howard!
    • 59' Song brings down Baines with another late challenge and this will give Everton another chance to attack the box from a set piece.
    • 57' What a chance for Rodwell!! Pienaar finds him unmarked 10 yards out but he gets underneath his shot and puts it high over the bar!
    • 56' Jagielka makes a good sliding challenge to deny Arshavin in the Everton box...
    • 55' Neville releases Pienaar down the right and the midfielder crosses... too deep for Saha.
    • 54' Chamakh stays down after a clash with Distin. Goodison Park is really unhappy with the referee but I must say they have little reason to feel hard-done by.
    • 53' Distin is also back on his feet - we'll see if there is any lasting damage.
    • 52' Fabregas is up and limping as referee Webb approaches - it's a yellow card although the home fans wanted a red.
    • 51' Late challenge by Fabregas on Distin as the defender clears it and both players stay down injured - looks like they may both have tweaked an ankle...
    • 50' Baines strikes the free-kick goalwards but Fabianski moves early and makes a comfortable save...
    • 49' Squillaci hauls down Saha as he races through on goal and Howard Webb opts for a yellow card, not a red one! Dangerous free-kick.
    • 48' GOAL!! Cesc Fabregas makes it two-nil early in the second half! Chamakh tees up the skipper and he powers a half-volley inside the left corner, great strike!
    • 47' Fabregas takes a left-foot shot from the edge of the box and Howard makes a decent save!
    • 46' The second half is under way - Arsenal kick off playing from right to left.
    • - Changes: Arsenal: Denilson for Jack Wilshere. Everton: Jack Rodwell for John Heitinga.
    • - Arsenal are back out on the pitch... Everton making the visitors wait.
    • 45+2' Half-time. Not the most edifying spectacle. Referee Webb is escorted off to boos. Arsenal lead through Bacary Sagna.
    • 45+1' Arteta crosses to the back post for Saha who heads goalwards from a tight angle, it hits Fabianski and bounces to safety!
    • 45+1' Baines wins a corner as we enter the one and only minute of added time...
    • 45' Everton win a free-kick just inside the Arsenal half which Arteta stands over...
    • 43' Everton corner from the right... headed clear by the Gunners who are dealing well with set pieces.
    • 42' Saha tries a shot which is blocked out to Baines on the left... his cross is not the best.
    • 41' Fabregas sends a raking pass into the box for Nasri... Howard comes out to claim it.
    • 40' Arsenal free-kick inside the Everton half, worked lazily to the right... it comes to nothing.
    • 39' Djourou clears again from an aimless cross into the box...
    • 38' Baines curls a free-kick into the Arsenal box, but it is well defended and Arshavin clears.
    • 37' That goal really ought to have come with its own sound effect. BOO-YA!! perhaps... Sagna's second goal for the club.
    • 36' GOAL!!! Bacary Sagna smashes the ball in from a tight angle on the right, cracking it into the roof of the net and giving Howard no chance!
    • 36' Nasri gets a shot on target, belting it from the edge of the box and Howard pushes it away.
    • 35' Lovely quick ball to Chamakh at the edge of the box... Everton's pleas for an offside flag go unheeded.
    • 34' Alex Song tries a long shot... miles off target. This has hardly been a feast for the eyes.
    • 32' Foul by Song now. This game seemingly being played almost entirely in the middle third. Everton hit it long for Saha... over his head and out for a goal kick.
    • 31' Hearts in mouths as Fabregas rolls the ball invitingly across the area... but there is no Arsenal player there to slam it in.
    • 29' Everton are already missing Marouane Fellaini throughy suspension and they can scarecely afford to have Heitinga's tackling compromised by that yellow.
    • 28' Nasri crosses towards Chamakh, but puts a little too much on the delivery which sails over the Moroccan's head.
    • 27' Saha flashes a shot from the dge of the box but it is three yards wide and one yard high.
    • 26' Johnny Heitinga renews acquaintances with Howard Webb, who books him for a late tackle on Jack Wilshere. Webb sent the Dutchman off in the World Cup final...
    • 25' It's a little bit niggly now. Not the best spectacle.
    • 23' Cahill races down the left and crosses, but Djourou makes an unchallenged clearance.
    • 22' We had three goalless draws in eight Premier League games yesterday, and you cannot help but wonder if this is going to be another...
    • 21' Another crucial block, this time from Jagielka as Wilshere pulls the trigger.
    • 20' A stray pass from Song provokes whistles of derision...
    • 19' The visitors are just starting to get into the ascendancy, but neither goalkeeper has been called into action yet, which is disappointing.
    • 17' More flair from Arshavin, as he dances inside from the left past two challenges, and blasts a shot high and wide...
    • 16' Arshavin!! Tries the spectacular from the edge of the box, but his volley fades wide of the left-hand post!
    • 15' More annoyance around Goodison as Heitinga is adjudged to have fouled Song. To be fair, that one was a foul...
    • 14' Alex Song sees Nasri's run and tries to pick out a through pass... cut out.
    • 13' Jack Wilshere goes down theatrically after a slight collision with Cahill, and wins a free-kick... the Arsenal man stays down... not sure what the problem is, if anything.
    • 12' Fantastic run by Coleman, racing 60 yards down the right and crossing perfectly for CAHILL!! But the Australian uncharacteristically heads wide! A real chance, especially for a header as good as Tim Cahill...
    • 11' Song plays Nasri clear down the right.. he shapes to shoot but Distin makes a crucial block!
    • 10' Saha crosses from the left to the back stick... Clichy heads clear.
    • 9' The atmosphere at Goodison is a little lacklustre... the crowd just need a bit of action to get the going.
    • 8' Arteta hits it into the wall. A disappointing effort.
    • 7' Coleman is fouled by Clichy 30 yards out, and Arteta might fancy a shot from the free-kick. Baines, too...
    • 5' Cahill is bustling around up front, but referee Howard Webb deems him guilty of a foul. Cahill playing well forward, though.
    • 4' First corner of the game to Everton on their right... Arteta delivers, Saha rises but heads high and wide under intense pressure.
    • 3' Fabregas lobs an attempted through ball down the middle, but Distin jogs back and heads it to his goalkeeper Howard.
    • 2' Saha puts Squillaci under pressure and the Arsenal defender whacks it hurriedly into the crowd.
    • 1' The silence is perfectly observed, and we are under way at Goodison Park! Everton kick off, playing from right to left in blue and white.
    • 13:58 The teams come out bearing poppy wreaths, and they are met by a line of servicemen on this Remembrance Sunday. A minute's silence will precede kick-off.
    • 13:56 Arsenal, for reasons passing understanding, are wearing their mustard-and-maroon away kit, when clearly red and white would be fine. Ho hum.
    • 13:55 Must confess, I've got one eye on the Formula One, which is throwing up some brain-melting permutations. Abu Dhabi GP: LIVE
    • 13:50 Arsenal have won their last two PL away matches without conceding a goal. If they keep a clean sheet today it will be the first time in over six years they have kept three clean sheets in a row away from home, since a four-match streak from March to May 2004.
    • 13:45 Everton have the fourth-best Premier League record in 2010 – picking up 54 points from 31 matches. Only Chelsea (69), Manchester United (66) and Arsenal (57) have more. If they win today they will equal Arsenal as the third best team this year.
    • 13:40 Everton and Arsenal have met 178 times in the league. Everton have won 54, Arsenal 86 and there have been 38 draws.
    • 13:35 Cesc Fabregas has been chatting on in the week about Arsene Wenger's level of focus which, he claims, is massive.
    • 13:30 Gibbs is back on the bench for Arsenal today following a knee injury, while Everton are without the suspended Marouane Fellaini. Jack Rodwell is on the bench for the Toffees.
    • 13:25 These teams supplied four members of the England squad - Theo Walcott, Jack Wilshere and Kieran Gibbs of Arsenal; Phil Jagielka of Everton. Wilshere catches Capello's eye
    • 13:20 TEAMS: EVERTON: Howard, Neville, Jagielka, Distin, Baines, Coleman, Arteta, Heitinga, Pienaar, Cahill, Saha... Subs: Mucha, Hibbert, Bilyaletdinov, Beckford, Gueye, Yakubu, Rodwell...
