RESULTS RECAP

Right then, before we head off, a little look back at the results today in the Premier League. Chelsea and Swansea both won to maintain their 100 per cent records, Big Sam's new attacking style of play worked a treat for West Ham, while there were bore draws at Villa Park and St Mary's.

WENGER REACTION

More from Arsene Wenger to Sky Sports: "I think it’s a strong point because we were 2-0 down. To come back to 2-2 is a good point, but a deserved one. The second goal was a foul on Mertesacker but maybe he should not have dived in. I’m not sure if it was offside but that kind of decision can go against you. What was most important was that we showed spirit to fight back."

GIROUD INJURY

Oh. And now, after the big build-up, he’s injured. Great! Arsene Wenger has confirmed to Sky Sports that the striker stretched his ankle towards the end of the game and is a doubt for Wednesday’s all-important Champions League play-off second leg against Besiktas. “It doesn’t look too good,” Wenger said.

STAT ATTACK

He's had plenty of criticism, but that's two goals for the season now for Olivier Giroud and Arsenal looked a lot better with him in the side in the second half. Alexis who?!

MATCH REPORT

It took until the 83rd minute for Arsenal to claw their way back into the game, but could they have won it? The second Everton goal should not have been allowed. Romelu Lukaku appeared to foul Per Mertesacker in the lead up and Steven Naismith was offside when he received the ball...

PLAYER RATINGS

It’s been a disappointing start to the season for Jack Wilshere and the midfielder was fortunate not to be sent off today for a late challenge on Gareth Barry. He pushed Leighton Baines a few minutes later when he knew he could not keep up with him and was then subbed to a chorus of boos from the Everton fans. He, I’m afraid, was our Flop of the Match today. Full ratings below.

FULL-TIME - EVERTON 2-2 ARSENAL

More from Peter Staunton: “The opposite applies for Arsenal. For the second week running they have shown their resilience and the brilliant Aaron Ramsey started the fight-back. There was not enough here to suggest that Arsenal are going to make a run for the title, there are far too many weaknesses, but the last 10 minutes will give them confidence and platform from which to plan. Encouraging too for Olivier Giroud, dropped before kick-off, but who came up with the goods for a point.”

FULL-TIME - EVERTON 2-2 ARSENAL

Peter Staunton reports from Goodison Park: “Arsenal deserve the credit for their fight-back which leaves Roberto Martinez and Everton contemplating a second successive 2-2 draw. It is clear they have in abundance at one end what they lack at the other. After going 2-0 up, the hosts should have seen this one out but they tired and retreated into their own box, giving the ball away. They were asking for trouble. For them it will feel like a loss after doing so well to put themselves in a position of power.”

ADDED TIME

Four minutes added on at Goodison Park, where it looks like Everton will have to settle for just a point. What a shame for Roberto Martinez - his side had done so well for 83 minutes - but Arsenal had been launching attack after attack and get their just reward.

ARSENAL GOAL - GIROUD

GOAL: Amazing! Late drama at Goodison Park as Nacho Monreal does well to keep the ball in play down the left and crosses for Olivier Giroud to squeeze a header past Tim Howard. Phil Jagielka should have cleared at the near post, though, and Sylvain Distin allowed Giroud too much space to connect with the cross. It’s anyone’s game now!

ARSENAL GOAL - RAMSEY

GOAL: That goal had been coming. The ball just kept coming back at Everton in deep positions as the hosts begin to tire after a strong display to this point. Santi Cazorla does well to find a cross and Aaron Ramsey, ordinary on the day until now, finds space in the box to finish from close range.

SUBSTITUTIONS

Peter Staunton reports from Goodison Park: "There's a Premier League debut for Joel Campbell. The Costa Rica World Cup hero is on for Arsenal in the place of Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. The boos ring out for Jack Wilshere as he is replaced by Santi Cazorla. Meanwhile, Aiden McGeady is on in place of Romelu Lukaku, who was reported to be suffering from a toe injury before kick off."
