Twitter reacts as Arsenal beat Everton
Arsenal beat Everton in today’s early kickoff in a game that saw both sets of fans vent their frustrations.
The Toffees are annoyed with their home record, where they have let in more than any other team in the Premier League, even Aston Villa, and pressure on Roberto Martinez has returned.
Meanwhile, the Gunners fans held up a banner at the end of the match calling for Arsene Wenger’s resignation, despite the 2-0 win.
Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck scored the two goals for their side in what was an efficient performance from Wenger’s men.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Arsenal’s win.

If we continue to put in solid performances like that, we might well have a chance #EFCvAFC

The Gunners opened the scoring with a lovely team goal in which Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil combined to set up Welbeck, with the goal getting a lot of attention on social media.

Iwobi was making his first Premier League start and marked it in the best way possible.
The tweeters of Britain desperately trying to think up a good Iwobi-Wan Kenobi pun #EVEARS
