Everton shocked many tonight with a win over Arsenal at Goodison Park.
Going into this one on Merseyside, many only saw one result coming – a victory for the away side.
You could see why, too, considering the Toffees have been in such a rut in recent weeks whereas the Gunners were flying towards the top of the league before tonight.
Arsene Wenger’s men could have gone top outright before tomorrow’s games by taking all three points but instead crumbled late on in front of a white-hot Goodison Park crowd in an all-too familiar fashion.
Indeed, we’ve seen this plenty of times before from the north Londoners; coming ever so close to mounting a serious title challenge but falling apart at the exact moment they’re required to perform.
After Ashley Williams bagged a late goal, Everton produced some heroic defending on the line and the referee blew the final whistle, some Gunners fans felt compelled to express their frustrations on Twitter – see for yourselves.

That is a devastating blow. At 1-0, we had them on the ropes but failed to punish them & take advantage. It's such a typical Arsenal defeat.
