Delofeu equaliser leaves Arsenal frustrated

Everton's keeper Tim Howard denies Aaron Ramsay of Arsenal

Gerard Delofeu’s late goal earned Everton a deserved 1-1 draw at Premier League leaders Arsenal on Sunday after Mesut Ozil’s strike seemed set to seal three points for the home side.

An absorbing clash which sizzled throughout caught fire in the closing stages as Ozil swept Arsenal in front from close range in the 80th minute and substitute Delofeu fired a powerful shot past Wojciech Szczesny four minutes later.

Olivier Giroud almost snatched victory in stoppage-time for the hosts when his 30 metre thunderbolt thumped against the woodwork.

The draw left Arsenal on 35 points, five clear of Liverpool and Chelsea after 15 games with Everton, who have lost only once in the league, fifth on 28.
