Arsenal Grab Last Minute Draw

Arsenal fought back from two goals down to salvage a 2-2 draw against Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday night.

Goals from Aaron Ramsey and Olivier Giroud cancelled out Seamus Coleman and Steven Naismith's first half goals as the game ended to a thrilling 2-2 draw.

Former South African captain Steven Pienaar had to to be taken off with a back injury in the eighth minute, after a Calum Chambers challenge earlier on. 

It was a slow cautious opening 10 minutes with neither side being able to create meaningful goalscoring chances.  

In the 15th minute Saemus Coleman's poor clearance found Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain outside the box who tried his luck but his effort went past the righthand post.

Everton opened the scoring in the 19th minute as Gareth Barry's cross towards the right far post found Coleman who headed past Wojciech Szczesny, 1-0.

Two minutes later Kevin Mirallas almost doubled Everton's lead after finding space behind Arsenal's defence, and one on one with Szczesny ,but dragged his effort wide. 

A minute from half-time Everton doubled their lead. After a great run by Lukaku from the halfway line, he played through Steven Naismith, who cooly slotted under an on-rushing Szczesny, 2-0.

Second half substitute, Olivier Giroud almost made an immediate impact in the 46th minute but sliced his volley over from close range.

Giroud was at it again in the 66th minute as he produced a shot on the turn but his effort beat the left hand post. Giroud was a constant threat and two minutes later he found himself through on Tim Howard but he shot straight at him from close-range.

Aaron Ramsey pulled one back for Arsenal in the 83rd minute as he tapped in Santi Carzola's low driven cross into the back of the net.

In the 90th mintute Giroud levelled matters for Arsenal as he headed to the left past a rooted Howard.
