Alex Iwobi came on with two minutes left as struggling Everton from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 at Goodison Park on Monday night.

A Demarai Gray’s volley from outside the box two minutes into added time, sealed the dramatic win.

Going into the fixture, Everton last tasted victory in September and had gone nine consecutive games without a win.

Also, the Toffees have now won three consecutive Premier League games against Arsenal for the first time in the competition’s history.

It is now back-to-back defeats for Arsenal who lost their last away game to Manchester United.

Everton thought they had taken the lead after 44 minutes when Richarlison headed home Andros Townsend’s free-kick, but it was disallowed for a tight offside call.

And they were made to regret that, when Arsenal suddenly burst into life seconds before the break. Kieran Tierney burst down the left and put a lovely cross into the box, and Martin Odegaard volleyed it past Pickford.

VAR’s offside decision would once again come to Arsenal’s rescue in the second-half.

Abdoulaye Doucoure played it through to Richarlison who hammered it past Aaron Ramsdale, but he was once again denied, this time by an even tighter margin.

But Arsenal continued to drop deeper, and they were punished. Demarai Gray’s curling effort smashed against the bar, and Richarlison was on hand in the box to head home the rebound with ten minutes remaining.

The Gunners were woken up by the goal, and missed a huge chance to take the lead again. Bukayo Saka curled a glorious ball in to the far post, but Eddie Nketiah somehow headed against the post from a matter of yards.

Odegaard had two efforts brilliantly blocked late on, before Gray produced a moment of magic, cutting inside and rifling an effort into the top corner off the post to send Goodison wild.
