Seamus Coleman was on target for Everton
Seamus Coleman was on target for Everton

Seamus Coleman rose to head home a sweet equaliser for Everton just before half time in their clash with Arsenal at Goodison Park tonight and then acted as peace maker just minutes later.

Coleman connected with a Leighton Baines cross to find the net and cancel out Alexis Sanchez's earlier deflected free kick that had put the Gunners ahead in tonight's Premier League clash.

As the teams walked off the pitch at half time, Arsenal's Mesut Ozil had to be held back and Coleman showed true maturity and calmness to cool the heated situation down.

Amazingly, the Ireland captain is now second top scorer for Everton with three goals - six behind Lukaku.

Ashley Williams got the winner for Everton in the second half to condemn Arsenal to just their second league defeat of the season.
