Arsenal failed to exact revenge on Everton for their League Cup
Final defeat and also saw their incredible streak of 51 straight
league wins come to an end.
The Merseysiders came into the game just five points adrift of
Arsenal and set up trying to ruffle the Gunners' feathers early
on. Both teams worked hard throughout the game to break the
deadlock but clear-cut chances were few and far between.
Kelly Smith went closest for Arsenal in the first half with a
fierce strike which flew inches over the bar. Everton's
clearest chance was arguably the best of the match, but after an
almighty scramble the ball was somehow hoiked over the bar from a
matter of yards.
The draw maintains the distance between the sides at the top of
the Premier League table. Now the Gunners know that eight points
from their remaining four games will secure the title. You
wouldn't bet against them doing it in three.
