Arsenal extended their lead at the top of the Premier League to five points as they thrashed struggling Everton 4-0 at Emirates Stadium.

Everton who remain in the relegation places, frustrated Arsenal until five minutes before half-time with Bukayo Saka executing a thumping finish.

The contest was effectively over in first-half stoppage time when Gabriel Martinelli netted their second despite an offside call which was later overturned after a VAR check.
