Arsenal in PL2 action against Everton

Anthony Gordon's late equaliser ended Arsenal's winning start to the Premier League 2 Division 1 season as Everton earned a 2-2 draw at Emirates Stadium.

The Gunners took the lead on five minutes when Tyreece John-Jules's brilliant backheeled volley looped over goalkeeper Nicholas Defreitas-Hansen.

Everton responded just two minutes later when Gordon scored his first of the evening when he latched on to Antony Evans' through-ball. 

Arsenal restored their advantage through Robbie Burton, who found the top corner on 22 minutes.

As 2018/19 champions Everton pushed for an equaliser, a long ball up field was misjudged by the home defence and Gordon rounded Karl Hein to equalise.

The draw leaves Arsenal in second place, on seven points from three matches. Everton, in eighth, have started with three draws.
