Arsenal mark 125th anniversary with win over Everton – Arsenal 1-0 Everton

Robin van Persie marked Arsenal’s 125th anniversary celebrations with a sumptuous volley to beat Everton at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners dominated most of the first half but failed to break Everton’s defence despite a string of corners.

An early opportunity was squandered by Theo Walcott after a quarter of an hour when he opted to set up Gervinho rather than take a shot himself. Gervinho himself passed up an opportunity minutes later when he instead attempted to feed van Persie, who was declared offside.

Arsene Wenger’s men finally broke the deadlock after 70 minutes, when captain van Persie delivered in off the far post with a wonderful volley.

Although Everton turned to a more offensive approach in the closing stages, the north Londoners side held on to earn three points and fourth place in the Premier League table – at least until Chelsea play Man City on Monday.

    We were helped a lot by Moyes bizarre decision to sub off Saha just as they were getting back into the game, RVP’s goal was out of the Henry drawer but what about Song’s pass?!

    It looked like it was going to be 1 of those days, but RVP came through, and brilliantly at that. What an assist by Song! Scary moment bye McAleny at the end, but by the grace of God, it’s one nil to The Arsenal!
