Everton took the lead after 22 minutes when Rob Holding deflected Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s flick past Bernd Leno off a cross from Iwobi.

Arsenal were level 10 minutes before the break when Nicolas Pepe scored from the spot after Tom Davies fouled Ainsley Maitland-Niles.

The Gunners went behind  again on the stroke of half-time when Yerry Mina headed in at the near post from a corner.

Arsenal improved after the break, David Luiz seeing a shot deflected on to the post after Jordan Pickford failed to deal with a cross.

Iwobi also went close to extend Everton lead but saw his goal bound shot from the edge of the box deflect off an Arsenal player and rolled away for a corner.
