Arsenal cruise to 5-2 win against flailing Everton

Arsenal rolled to a 5-2 win at Goodison Park on Sunday to move into the fifth spot in the Premier League, dooming Everton to a bottom-three position.

The Gunners started off on the front foot, cutting the home side's defence apart almost at will. They could have scored twice in the first 10 minutes, but it was Everton - against the run of play - who took the lead with virtually their first attack. Wayne Rooney picked the ball up and, as the Arsenal defence backed off, struck a superb curler beyond Petr Cech to give Everton an unlikely lead.

Arsenal (5-1-3) continued to threaten, but Everton now had a decent foothold in the game and themselves began to create chances. But it was the Gunners' quality that ensured an equaliser five minutes before the break. Granit Xhaka unleashed a fierce shot which, upon deflection, Jordon Pickford could only parry. The ball fell for Nacho Monreal, who made no mistake.
