London:

Everton substitute Gerard Deulofeu scored six minutes from time to salvage a deserved 1-1 draw at Arsenal on Sunday as the Gunners missed the chance to open a gap at the top of the Premier League standings.

Deulofeu scored from a tight angle with a shot past Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny just four minutes after Mesut Ozil put Arsene Wenger's team in front from close range.

On the back of their win at Manchester United midweek, Everton was the better team in the first half but Arsenal had the best chances after the interval as goalkeeper Tim Howard produced several decisive saves. Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud hit the crossbar in injury time.

Arsenal, which next plays Napoli in the Champions League before tough games against Manchester City and Chelsea, leads Liverpool and Chelsea by five points.
