Arsenal have had issues at Goodison Park in the recent past but despite going a goal behind there on Sunday afternoon, the Gunners comfortably defeated Everton 5-2 to earn a valuable three points.

Wayne Rooney put the Blues ahead with a brilliant 20-yard curling effort but Arsenal never let their heads drop and Nacho Monreal converted a rebound to get them level at the break.

Mesut Ozil put the Gunners ahead before Idrissa Gueye was sent off for a second booking. Arsenal took full advantage of the extra man as Alexandre Lacazette and Aaron Ramsey extended the lead to 4-1.

Everton got a second after sloppy play by Petr Cech but Arsenal had the last laugh with a wonderful Alexis Sanchez goal.
