Olivier Giroud Scored For The Third Straight Game

Arsenal's beat rivals Everton to move to the top of league for the first time since February 2014, giving an open signal to their rivals of their potency at the title challenge this year.

In the 36 minute, Ozil produced a sublime pass to pick out Giroud who scored with a fine lofting header. That was his 3rd goal this week; one against Watford, one against Bayern and this.

Wenger’s men doubled their lead in the space of a minute and Koscielny noded in Carzola’s freekick to lead at 2-0 by the 38 minute of the game. Their two goals came in the space of 106 first-half seconds, two headers from two Frenchman: Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny.

Arsenal always depict good football which is pleasant to the eye but usually let down by the killer instincts they need in front of goals especially when needed most.

This time around, they looked like scoring at will and this game appeared going the same way as they did against Manchester United.

Their goals in the recent 3-0 thrashing of Manchester United, for example, came in the space of 13 minutes, which was exactly the same period of time a trio were scored against Watford a week ago.

They were however exposed on a few occasions in defence which could have seen a different story being told. Everton scored from a counter as a Ross Barkley shot was deflected in by Gabriel to leave it at 2-1, Arsenal.

Everton had chances to score a late equalizer 12 minutes from time, a left-wing cross by Gareth Barry, who was later sent off, was headed onto the top of the crossbar by Lukaku and, eight minutes later, Cech denied Deulofeu by showing great anticipation and speed off his line.
