Welbeck, Iwobi Hand Gunners Victory

English Premier League

Result: Everton 0-2 Arsenal

Date: 19 March 2016

Venue: Goodison Park

Arsenal returned to winning ways in the English Premier League with a 2-0 victory over Everton at Goodison Park.

The hosts had the first real opening of the game inside the opening five minutes when Seamus Coleman shaved the upright with a neat flick at the near post.

The woodwork then came to Everton's rescue a minute later when Phil Jagielka's clearance deflected off Danny Welbeck and crashed onto the upright.

The Gunners broke the deadlock in the seventh minute, as Alexis Sanchez played a neat pass for Welbeck, who rounded Joel Robles, before tapping into an empty net.

Arsene Wenger's charges managed to double their advantage  just before the halftime break, when Alex Iwobi calmly slotted past Robles, after getting on the end of Hector Bellerin's pass.

The Toffees struggled to break down the Gunners' defence, with Romelu Lukaku cutting a frustrated figure in the attack.

Roberto Martinez opted to change things in the 73rd minute and introduced Gerard Deulofeu, while Arsene Wenger responded by introducing Olivier Grioud.

Arsenal did have the ball in the back of net after 80 minutes, but Giroud's glancing header was ruled out due to a foul in the build-up.

The score remained 2-0 at the full-time whistle, as the Gunners move up to third spot. While, Everton remain in 12th position.
