It was like last season again in the first half as Everton outplayed Arsenal in all positions. Misplaced passes was the order of the day as Arsenal's midfield kept making short passes that failed to reach its destination. Everton attacked en masse and defended the same way. A short from Alex Oxlade-chamberlain that missed the goal by inches was the closest Arsenal came to scoring a goal. Everton made Arsenal pay for their lack of focus and cohesion through Coleman's header from Gareth Barry's ball in. Later towards the end of the first half, Everton caught Wenger's boys on the counter and it resulted in a goal by Naismith. 2-0 it ended in favour of Everton in the first half. Second half again remained 2-0 till the 86th minute with Arsenal enjoying majority of the possession. It paid off as Aaron Ramsey linked up with a Santi Cazorla ball into the box to slot home Arsenal's first goal. Olivier Giroud later put a header in in injury time to end the match 2-2.
