Samir Nasri, Robin Van Persie and Theo Walcott scored second-half goals as Arsenal defeated Everton 3-1 at the Emirates Stadium.Everton took an early lead. The ball was knocked up field and dropped back to Osman. The midfielder played a pass out wide to Steven Pienaar on the left, continued his run into the area to meet the return cross and stabbed the ball past Manuel Almunia.Arsenal, though, were soon pressing down on the Everton goal and drew level through Nasri on 48 minutes.

Arsenal, though, were soon pressing down on the Everton goal and drew level through Nasri on 48 minutes.A corner was only half-cleared, with Denilson playing the ball back to the edge of the area, where Mikael Silvestre – making a belated debut after signing from Manchester United – touched it back to Nasri, who drilled a low strike past the defenders and an unsighted Howard.
Van Persie blazed the ball over when it fell to him 12 yards out and then looked to have a strong penalty claim when he went down under a challenge from Baines – but the referee was having none of it.Peter Walton was then centre stage once more when Tony Hibbert went in late on Denilson and was involved in some unnecessary afters with Clichy which saw a brief melee. The Northamptonshire official, though, decided a yellow card was sufficient punishment for both men.
Arsenal continued to press, but were confronted by a wall of blue shirts around the penalty area.However, they finally found a way through on 70 minutes. Adebayor went into the left side of the box, before setting up Fabregas.His strike was parried by Howard – and Van Persie was on hand to nod the ball in, despite the best efforts of Baines on the line.Abou Diaby came on for his first appearance of the season to replace Nasri and promptly set up Walcott to make it 3-1 .Full highlights from match of the day and quick goals report below
