It was fight to finish at the Goodison Park on Monday night as Everton host Arsenal in an epic English Premier League fixture, SPORTbible reports.

Demarai Gray became the hero for the Toffees following his injury time stunner to gift the hosts all three points in a highly entertaining match against the Gunners.

The host who approached the game from their dreadful performance last week needed such a morale booster as they were yet to win in their last eight games.

How it all went down at Goodison Park

Fans had threatened to walk out on the night due to a VAR controversy and last minute penalty missed by Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang, but Gray’s winner was the major high point of the match.

With barely a minute left of the six minutes injury time played, the winger breezed through to beat two defenders and fired home to win it.

But in the first half, Everton fans planned to protest against the club’s owners and while some left their seat, the crowd actually singing in support of their team louder than previously.

On the stroke of half-time, Richarlison thought he'd grabbed the opening goal, only for VAR to rule it out for offside, and then, in injury time, Martin Odegaard made it 1-0 to the visitors.

The Brazil forward finally had one allowed in the 79th minute, as he followed up on Gray's shot, which ricocheted off the crossbar, to head past Ramsdale to make it 1-1.

Manchester United 1-0 Crystal Palace

Meanwhile, earlier reported that Ralf Rangnick has had a dream start to life as the new Man United boss after the Red Devils secured a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday, December 5, at Old Trafford.

Rangnick was appointed to the role last week to succeed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who was axed after United's poor run of results.

The German tactician was in line to take charge against Arsenal but had to wait to have proper documentation in place to gain access to the touchline and has Fred to thank for the only goal of the game.
