Arsenal misses chance to top EPL chart

By Fredrick Muoki

Arsenal missed the chance to go top of the English Premier League as Everton came from behind to secure a 2-1 victory and a first victory since October.

The match was played last night night at Goodison Park.

The Gunners, who had won their previous three games, were rewarded for an impressive start as Alexis Sanchez’s free-kick deflected in off Ashley Williams.

Everton equalised just before half-time when Seamus Coleman glanced home Leighton Baines’ excellent cross.

The Toffees, encouraged by a vocal crowd, dominated thereafter and Williams powered home a late header to complete the turnaround.

Home captain Phil Jagielka was sent off in the dying minutes for a second bookable offence and Arsenal had two shots cleared off the line in a frantic finale.

In another match played last night,Marc Pugh lone goal gave Bournemouth a 1-0 win over Leicester City.

Pugh scored for the hosts on his first league start of the season with a controlled drive from 18 yards out.

Leicester remains 14th, four points above the bottom three, while the Cherries move to eighth position in the league table.

Meanwhile, Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has no injury threats as his side visits Sunderland tonight for an English Premier League match.

Manchester City will host Watford while Man United travels to Crystal Palace.

Tottenham will host Hull City as Middleborough host Liverpool.
