Everton winless run continues
Everton’s poor run of form away to the Big Six continued as they slumped to 2-0 defeat at the Emirates.

On that occasion they beat Man United 1-0 at Old Trafford.

Walcott’s warm welcome
Theo Walcott returned to the Emirates for the second time since his move to Everton during the January transfer window.
Having joined Arsenal just before the club moved to the Emirates Stadium he had almost become part of the furniture, and so on his return stopped to say hello to some familiar faces.
One of those faces was Gunnersaurus, who jumped on the forward as he stepped off the Toffees team bus on arrival.

Arsenal’s retro twist
To commemorate Arsenal’s 100 years in the top flight, the club are producing retro matchday programme covers.
For the Everton clash, there was a special throwback to a 1922/23 season cover for a home game against the Toffees.
The edition began with the heading, ‘familiar foes’, and both sides continue to face off regularly as the longest serving clubs in the top flight.
Keep your eye on the ball
Everton forward Walcott ended his return to Arsenal with a black-eye after the ball bounced off Petr Cech and hit him in the face.
The incident occurred just before half-time as the 29-year-old found himself one-on-one with the ‘keeper and he tried to pull it back to a teammate.
Cech was wise to it but as he cleared the ball it hit Walcott in the face, leaving him with a bruised eye socket.
When he left the pitch shortly after the hour mark, he still needed ice on his puffed up eye.
