Post.
Thanks for joining me today. See you next time for some more football. Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
95'
FT: Arsenal 3-2 Everton. Everton huffed and puffed but they couldn't get the leveller. An Aubameyang double and Nketiah goal were enough for the Gunners to get the win.
95'
So greedy from Kean. Everton have lots of bodies forward and instead of passing Kean try an ambitious effort from about 25 yards out which goes wide.
94'
Gomes is booked for a foul on Aubameyang.
93'
That was the chance for Everton. Bernard crosses in and Calvert-Lewin heads it agonisingly wide. You won't get much better chances than that.
90'
5 minutes added time.
89'
A lovely pass to Richarlison who is through but Leno runs out and clears. He was about 25 yards from his goal.
87'
Nketiah hits the bar!!! Everton are dily dallying with the ball at the box and when Arsenal win it Nketiah's curling effort hits the bar.
85'
Everton have played really well today. Was always going to be difficult away to Arsenal.
82'
Arsenal sub: Guendouzi on for Ozil.
82'
Everton sub: Kean on for Delph.
80'
Richarlison crosses for Calver-Lewin who gets a slight touch, but it goes wide.
78'
Sidibe's shot is blocked and comes to Richarlison whose shot is saved by the legs of Leno.
76'
Arsenal sub: Ceballos off for Torreira.
75'
Ceballos' curling effort from the edge of the box goes just over.
73'
Sigurdsson is booked for a foul.
72'
So unlucky from Calvert-Lewin whose shot is saved from yards out by Leno.
67'
Sigurdsson has a shot from the edge of the box that goes well wide.
64'
Calvert-Lewin shoots from inside the box but Leno gets down and makes a comfortable save.
60'
Everton sub: Bernard on for Iwobi.
59'
No matter what team you support, what a great day this is for football. André Gomes replaces Schneiderlin. He has made his comeback.
54'
Arsenal are looking to get a 4th goal.
50'
What a game we have here.
47'
Insane here. Another goal just after the game has started. Pépé whips it in from the left and Aubameyang heads it past Pickford into the bottom left corner.
46'
Aubameyang!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
46'
And we're back.
45'
HT: Arsenal 2-2 Everton. Just as we thought Arsenal would be heading in at the break 2-1 up, a Leno nightmare brought the Toffees level. Don't go anywhere as this game could go either way.
45'
Such a strange goal. Schneirderlin hits his shot into the ground, Mina heads it and Richarlison puts his foot up to knock it in, but he appears to miss it and it goes through Leno's legs into the net. 2-2.
45'
Richarlison!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
45'
Richarlison is thus booked.
45'
A bit of handbags here. Richarlison fouls Ceballos and Bellerín and Richarlison square up to each other.
45'
5 minutes added time.
45'
Baines swings in the free-kick but Richarlison heads far wide.
43'
Looks like we will be heading in at the break with Arsenal winning 2-1.
39'
I guess that was the response from Arsenal that I was wondering about.
34'
What a pass from Luiz and what a run from Aubameyang. Luiz passes it through the defenders and Aubameyang makes the run, takes it into the box and slots it in the net. And he does a summersault to celebrate it.
33'
2-1 Arsenal!!!!!!!!!!!!!
31'
Schneiderlin is booked for pulling Nketiah back.
28'
And it's Nketiah. Saka crosses in from the left and Nketiah is there to put it in. 1-1.
27'
GOOOOAAAAL NKETIAH!!!!!!!!!!
26'
This time Pépé has a shot from inside the box that is too close to Pickford.
25'
Iwobi has a shot from just inside the box that goes well over. He probably should have passed.
24'
Nketiah has a shot from a tight angle that goes flying over the bar.
18'
Arsenal sub: Kolasinac off for Saka.
15'
Kolasinac is down here with blood in his mouth. He took a nasty knock from Sidibe and had an even nastier fall. Looks like he's done something to his arm too.
13'
Pépé swings in the corner but Mustafi heads it miles over the bar.
9'
Everton attack and they have several bodies forward. Richarlison is the man that leads it and Iwobi has loads of space on the right. He is a bit too late with the pass and Iwobi tries to find the far corner and puts it wide.
6'
Pépé passes to Bellerín at the edge of the box but he skies it over the bar.
4'
I wonder how Arsenal will react to this early goal.
2'
What a goal and what a start for Everton. Sigurdsson crosses the free-kick in, Luiz heads it but it comes to Calvert-Lewin who overhead kicks it into the net. 1-0 Everton.
1'
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAL EVERTON!!!!!
1'
And we're off.
Prev.
2 legends.
Prev.
Baines is making his 416th Premier League appearance here.
Prev.
Last match between the two was 0-0 in December. Arsenal last won in September 2018 while Everton haven't won away to Arsenal since 1996.
Prev.
Everton make 5 changes from the side that beat Crystal Palace 3-1. Coleman, Keane, Digne, Walcott and Bernard are out for Sidibe, Holgate, Baines, Delph and Iwobi.
Prev.
Arsenal have also made some changes from the midweek draw against Olympiacos. Bellerín, Kolasinac, Ceballos, Ozil, Pépé and Nketiah are all in from Saka, Sokratis, Willock, Guendouzi, Martinelli and Lacazette. Is Arteta resting players for the 2nd leg?
Prev.
Perhaps the big news is that André Gomes is back on the bench after his horrific leg break.
Prev.
Everton XI: Pickford; Sidibe, Holgate, Mina, Baines; Sigurdsson, Delph, Schneiderlin, Iwobi; Richarlison, Calvert-Lewin.
Prev.
Arsenal XI: Leno; Bellerin, Mustafi, Luiz, Kolasinac; Xhaka, Ceballos, Ozil; Pepe, Nketiah, Aubameyang.
Prev.
Hello and welcome to the Emirates for 10th v 11th. It is a big game in the race for Europe.
