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.

When Olivier Giroud charged down Sylvain Distin's clearance on Saturday evening and collapsed to the ground in a crumpled heap adjacent to the away end, I barely flickered in recognition. Partly because I'd yet to psychically realign with planet earth after the Frenchman's equaliser.

While for the last two there are obvious replacements, who plays up front tonight is going to give Arsene Wenger something of a headache.
