A 90th minute equaliser from Olivier Giroud was the defining moment of an improved second half performance, adding to Aaron Ramsey's goal which came with seven minutes remaining

Everton had taken the lead early in the first half when Mesut Ozil was caught napping by defender Seamus Coleman who nodded into the roof of the net after finding himself completely unmarked.

After a somewhat disappointing domestic campaign last term, one which can only be described as ‘typical Arsenal', Arsene Wenger has been hard at work preparing for August and the start of the new Premier League season as the gunners go in search of lifting the trophy they last captured in 2004.

Arsene will be desperate to win English football's biggest prize – well, he and the 100 million fans across the globe- and the Frenchman has been busy over the summer; not only has he been on the beach in Rio as part of a French TV's World Cup coverage, but he's kept his eyes closely on the tournament, bringing in the likes of Chile's star man Alexis Sanchez, compatriot Mathieu Debuchy, David Ospina and English prospect Calum Chambers.
