Everton came from behind to earn a vital 2-1 win over title contenders Arsenal at Goodison Park on Tuesday.

Ronald Koeman’s side had won just one of their previous ten Premier League games, and looked set to extend that miserable run when Alexis Sanchez fired home for the visitors after 20 minutes.

However, the Toffees hit back brilliantly when Seamus Coleman headed home Leighton Baines’ cross just before the break, and then their second half dominance paid off four minutes from time when centre-back Ashley Williams met Ross Barkley’s corner with a fine header.

Arsene Wenger’s side missed the chance to go top of the table after suffering only their second league defeat of the season, and their first since the opening weekend of the campaign.

In Tuesday’s other game, Bournemouth got the better of champions Leicester 1-0 at the Vitality Stadium.

Eddie Howe’s side dominated the first half against an uninspiring Foxes team, and took the lead 11 minutes before the break when Marc Pugh fired home from the edge of the box.

Claudio Ranieri’s men improved as the game went on, and almost got a late equaliser when home goalkeeper Artur Boruc made a stunning save to deny Leonardo Ulloa.

It means that Leicester have now picked up just one point from their eight away games in the Premier League this season, while the Cherries rise to eighth following a third win in five matches.

Unsurprisingly, it was Everton’s performance against Arsenal which got many talking on Twitter, with many Toffees fans thrilled to witness a great display at Goodison Park last night…

There were many excellent individual performances, but one man in particular received praise from some Everton supporters…

While Arsenal fans were less than impressed with what they saw from their side yesterday…

… but many are already turning their attentions to their massive game away at Manchester City on Sunday…

Tuesday’s other game saw Bournemouth beat Leicester, and many Cherries supporters were delighted with the all round performance of their team…

While some reserved special praise for midfielder Jack Wilshere, and defender Steve Cook…

And many Leicester fans were left frustrated once again after seeing their side lose on the road for the seventh time this season…
