Arsenal moved 5points clear of Manchester City at the top of the PL table following Wednesday’s win against Everton at the Emirates.

The Gooners put four past Sean Dyche’s men dropping the Toffees back in the relegation zone, just weeks after the shock 1-0 defeat at Goodison Park in the reverse fixture.

However, on Wednesday Mikel Arteta’s side looked primed for business from and kick off, but the opening goal didn’t come until late in the first half.

Bukayo Saka (40′) broke the deadlock and he provided the assist for his side’s second through Gabriel Martinellli (45+1′). Martin Ødegaard (71′) and Martinellli (80′), for his brace, completed the trouncing.

Meanwhile, Alex Iwobi played all 90minutes against his former side in the rescheduled fixture.
