Arsenal 1-1 Everton

The light blue sky above the Emirates at kick off seemed to promise an end to the title drought, but after Foden's early City goal, it seemed the heavens were simply foreshadowing the colour of the ribbons on the Premier League trophy.

It started so well. The stadium was rocking and Arsenal were on the front foot. Miracles could happen.

After Foden's goal, the Arsenal atmosphere died down and his second killed it completely.

An own goal from Rice from an Everton free kick, which inadvertently deflected off his head compounded Arsenal's woes.

However, Odegaard's low cross converted by Tomiyasu restored parity in the match and a West Ham goal in Manchester gave Arsenal a slender chance of winning the league, just before the interval.
