Arsenal continued their ascendancy at the top of the Premier League after a confident 4-0 thumping of Everton on Wednesday night.
Bukayo Saka maintained his fine form by getting on the scoresheet as he and Gabriel Martinelli both gave Arsenal a two-goal cushion just before the half time interval.
Martin Odegaard made it three in the second half before Martinelli grabbed his second of the evening to make it a rout with the fourth of the evening.
The result sees Arsenal regain their five-point lead over Man City as they bid for a first league title since 2004.

WILSHERE COULD HELP LURE RICE TO THE EMIRATES
It is no secret Arsenal want to sign Declan Rice this summer: enter secret agent Jack Wilshere. Rice and Wilshere formed a close relationship during their time playing together at West Ham and have remained tight. Indeed, it has been pointed out to Sportsmail that the Wilshere-factor could well be an influencer as Rice decides his next destination.
Chelsea are interested, but without Champions League football - which looks likely - Rice will think twice about a return to Stamford Bridge. Manchester United could also be an option for the England international but Arsenal are believed to be in pole position.
Wilshere, who is Arsenal’s under-18s coach, remains a cult hero on the terraces here at the Emirates. If he can help bring Rice across London, he’ll be held in even loftier esteem.

EVERTON'S LOYALTY WILL BE KEY TO SURVIVAL
During the closing days of Frank Lampard’s reign at Goodison Park, one particular Everton chief canvassed the opinions of senior players about their manager. To a man, they are understood to have vouched for Lampard.
In the end, it made little difference, Lampard was sacked just days later. Three of the players approached at the time started for Sean Dyche here at the Emirates.
The Everton boss will need that honesty and loyalty more than ever if they are to avoid the drop.
Everton are still in relegation trouble but the players' loyalty and honesty will be key to survival
BENTLEY SPOTTED AT THE EMIRATES
David Bentley cut a relaxed figure as he schmoozed in the Emirates media lounge before kick-off.
The forward, now 38, was viewed as a generational talent as he emerged through Arsenal’s famed Hale End academy during the late 1990s and early 2000s.
Arsene Wenger was never entirely convinced, though, and Bentley left the club before Arsenal departed Highbury. You’d have forgiven him for thinking what might have been on Wednesday night.

ARSENAL POUNCED FOR NEW SAKA DEAL BEFORE WORLD CUP
As MailOnline first revealed last Thursday, Bukayo Saka has agreed a new contract with Arsenal. The deal will be worth a minimum of £10million a season, but in reality - all in - it is worth closer to £15million.
A deal in principle was reached last week, but truth be told, the defining moment arrived just days before Saka left for the World Cup.
The Gunners, just prior to England’s departure for Qatar, made a last ditch effort to improve the terms on offer before the start of the tournament knowing full well the consequences if Saka went onto become one of the stars of the World Cup.
The revised offer was significantly more in line with what Saka is worth and a broad verbal agreement was struck, with the finer details ironed out last week.

TOFFEES AND GUNNERS BAFFLED BY WORK PERMIT RULES
Representatives of Everton and Arsenal were among those left bemused during a recent Premier League meeting over plans to persuade the Football Association to dilute their work permit rules.
One part of the meeting, in particularly, left them scratching their heads. When asked why Chelsea’s striker David Datro Fofana was awarded a visa on appeal after falling short of the threshold required to gain a visa, clubs were told it was because Chelsea gave a ‘good presentation’.
Sporting directors up and down the country are honing their PowerPoint skills as we speak.

ARSENAL LOVE PLAYING EVERTON
100 - Arsenal became the first team in English top flight history to record 100 league wins against a single opponent with this win over Everton.
