The Toffees, who haven’t won at Arsenal since 1996, took an early lead through Dominic Calvert-Lewin.
From a Gylfi Sigurdsson’s cross, the ball was lifted to Calvert-Lewin who scored with an acrobatic finish, although there was a suspicion of a high boot.
Former England striker turned popular football pundit Gary Lineker took to social networking site Twitter to express his reaction to Calvert-Lewin’s goal. He described the striker as a ‘great finish’.

The 22-year-old is enjoying a superb campaign for the Toffees. He has taken his game to a whole new level under Carlo Ancelotti, and is playing with loads of confidence.
Calvert-Lewin has now scored 12 goals in the Premier League, and his strike against the Gunners was his fourth in his last five games.
Despite a resolute performance from Everton, they will be extremely disappointed with the result as it could have a big say in the race for European football next season.
