London:

Robin van Persie rescued Arsenal again by crashing home a stunning volley to earn a 1-0 win over Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.

The Netherlands striker peeled off his marker to meet a floated pass by Alex Song in the 70th minute with a powerful shot that went in off the far post, taking his league-high tally to 15 goals.

The deserved victory was the perfect way for Arsenal to celebrate the club's 125-year anniversary festivities, lifting Arsene Wenger's team provisionally above Chelsea into the top four.

The winning margin could have been bigger had the hosts taken advantage of a number of clear-cut chances, particularly in the first half when Theo Walcott ran riot down the right wing.

Everton remains in mid-table.
