Arsenal v Everton player ratings: Leno 4, Xhaka 5; Richarlison 8, Calvert-Lewin 6

Everton grab their first Premier League win in seven games to stay in the Champions League hunt

An own-goal from Arsenal goalkeeper Bernd Leno handed Carlo Ancelotti's Everton a first win in seven games.

German keeper Leno turned a Richarlison cross into his own goal in the 76th minute to give the Toffees a welcome 1-0 victory as they chase a place in Europe next season.

The result left Everton in eighth place, three points off the Champions League places after their first league win at Arsenal since 1996, while the Gunners struggle in ninth, nine points off the top four.

"It was really important to stay attached to the top of the table," Ancelotti told the BBC.

"The performance was good. It's all good news tonight and this gives us confidence for the next games. Finally I can say we are back."
