WALTON, UNITED KINGDOM (GaeaTimes.com)- Arsenal proved yet again that they are one of the best teams in league with a 2-1 win over Everton this Sunday. Arsene Wenger’s men survived a late rally from Everton to assert themselves in the second position behind Chelsea in the league tables. The win also gives them the much needed momentum to that could finally put them at the top.

The first half started rather tamely for both the sides and it was not till the 36th minute that much action was seen. There was, however, great chance for Everton when Seamus Coleman led the charge deep into the Arsenal defense and then looped the ball for Tim Cahill to head. Tim Cahill, however failed to get over the ball for control and it looped over the net. The goalkeepers had little action in the rest of the half except in the 36th minute when Bacary Sagna scored a goal from a rebound of the goalkeeper. The rest of the half, Arsenal remained content with playing the ball around but still managed to have more possession of the ball in the opponent’s half.

The second half started like a dream for Arsenal as Cesc Fabregas drove in a ball rather casually from the penalty spot after a fantastic pass by Marouane Chamakh. With 2-0 lead, Arsenal looked to knock around the ball till the end of the 90 minutes. Everton, however, continued to attack and some of their attempts also showed great promise. In the end, Tim Cahill finally made use of a pass by Saha and the lead was reduced to 2-1. The next few minutes made for some extra-ordinary football but Arsenal sailed home comfortably.
